The 6-3 decision killed the $400 billion plan announced by Biden last year in a desperate ploy to get the youth vote.
Biden said after the ruling: “This fight is not over. I will have more to announce when I address the nation this afternoon.
“My Administration’s student debt relief plan would have been the lifeline tens of millions of hardworking Americans needed as they try to recover from a once-in-a-century pandemic,” he said.
“Nearly 90 percent of the relief from our plan would have gone to borrowers making less than $75,000 a year, and none of it would have gone to people making more than $125,000. It would have been life-changing for millions of Americans and their families,” said the president, instead of siding with responsible Americans who agreed to pay back their government-funded loans when they borrowed the money.
“I believe that the Court’s decision to strike down our student debt relief plan is wrong. But I will stop at nothing to find other ways to deliver relief to hard-working middle-class families. My administration will continue to work to bring the promise of higher education to every American,” he added.
McEnany took to Twitter to remind the president and complaining Democrats what their former fearless leader, Nancy Pelosi, said about the giveaway last year when Biden announced it.
“As then-Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi explained: ‘People think that the President of the United States has the power for debt forgiveness. He does not. He can postpone. He can delay. But he does not have that power. That has to be an act of Congress.'”
Here’s Pelosi actually saying something truthful:
