Supreme Court Weighs Fate of Biden’s Student Loan Forgiveness Plan

Today, the Supreme Court heard arguments from both sides regarding President Joe Biden’s student loan forgiveness plan. The plan, which was announced in late January, would forgive up to $10,000 in student loan debt for borrowers who qualify.

Conservative justices seemed skeptical of the plan, with Justice Samuel Alito asking whether the plan was “beyond the scope” of the President’s authority. Fox News argued that the Supreme Court must stop Biden from “snatching this power from the people” through the handouts.

The Hill discussed what to expect from the Supreme Court on Biden’s student loan cancellation plan. The Wall Street Journal published an opinion piece on why they are challenging Biden’s student-debt power grab, while CNN provided live updates on the Supreme Court hearing arguments about the student loan forgiveness plan.

The Supreme Court is expected to make a ruling on the case in the coming months.
