Nov 10 (Reuters) - A federal judge in Texas on Thursday ruled that President Joe Biden's plan to cancel hundreds of billions of dollars in student loan debt was unlawful and must be vacated, delivering a victory to conservative opponents of the program.

U.S. District Judge Mark Pittman, an appointee of former Republican President Donald Trump in Fort Worth, ruled in a lawsuit backed by the Job Creators Network Foundation on behalf of two borrowers.

The debt relief plan had already been temporarily blocked by the St. Louis-based 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals while it considers a request by six Republican-led states to enjoin it while they appealed the dismissal of their own lawsuit.

Biden's plan has been the subject of several lawsuits by conservative state attorneys general and legal groups, though plaintiffs before Thursday had struggled to convince courts they were harmed by it in such a way that they have standing to sue.

 

Pittman in a 26-page ruling wrote that the HEROES Act - a law that provides loan assistance to military personnel and that was relied upon by the Biden administration to enact the relief plan - did not authorize the $400 billion student loan forgiveness program.

"The Program is thus an unconstitutional exercise of Congress's legislative power and must be vacated," Pittman wrote.

The White House and representatives for the plaintiffs did not respond immediately to requests for comment.

 

The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office in September calculated the debt forgiveness would eliminate about $430 billion of the $1.6 trillion in outstanding student debt and that over 40 million people were eligible to benefit.

The plan, announced in August, calls for forgiving up to $10,000 in student loan debt for borrowers making less than $125,000 per year, or $250,000 for married couples. Borrowers who received Pell Grants to benefit lower-income college students will have up to $20,000 of their debt canceled.

You know, from everything else I've seen from Biden, I think this was just a political ploy.  Also, as I have said before, with the high interest rates on student loans and the massive amounts a lot of people are saddled with, that 10,000 dollar amount isn't going to help too many people all that much, and the states were going to tax it as income.  That's fucked up.  Get your loans paid, but owe the states taxes on that as income.  Yikes.  It was so obviously a bribe attempt and was so damn cynical.  Same for the shit about codifying Roe and all the other half assed crap he tried over the past few months.

It's a sham in that 10 Grand doesn't pay off shit. Maybe the interest on those loans at best but I'm still waiting for an article that actually explains how it's illegal while Trump redirecting Military funds wasn't

Yes, "young people" are totally clueless after being indoctrinated by their high school "teachers" and college "professors". They have no understanding that every single government giveaway also takes away their freedoms. It's curious that democrats never seem to investigate or criticize the inflated cost of college. I would think it's because the first priority of the U.S. education system seems to be to brainwash young people into thinking that every failed leftist policy is wonderful and if we only try it just one more time it might actually work instead of causing misery like it always has historically. Leftists are all-in on destroying this country.

Which freedom exactly will be taken away from them if student loan forgiveness passes?

Same for the GOP, right? What is the GOP doing to lower tuition prices?

Because they are funded mainly by taxes, government programs restrict people’s ability to do what they wish with their income, and in this sense government plainly does reduce freedom. Anytime the government gives away Billions of dollars, taxpayers must pay for it. 

What power would the GOP have to lower college tuition? I have certainly heard MANY in the GOP question tuition prices.

You seriously think those ultra-liberal teachers are praising capitalism? REALLY?

A central plank of Bernie's platform in 2016 and 2020 was free public college tuition, you insanely stupid clown.  Please put a gun in your mouth out of shame.

Quick question, if Bernie's government pays the bill where does the money come from?? Here's a clue, It isn't Bernie. Here's another eye opener for you, if the taxpayers ever paid the bill for "free college" there would be an even HIGHER cost of college for taxpayers because once the government bureaucrats are entrenched then they must all be paid as well. Of course, the already lousy "education" these young people are receiving would get even worse under government control because as we all know anything the government controls turns to shit.

You can make this argument against any taxation. It's an absolutely retarded argument. I'm not surprised you're the one making it.

They had the presidency, house, and senate in 2016. Are you telling me they couldn't, or that you don't know how it would be done?
