Biden’s Student Debt Relief Plan May Be Affected By Legal Challenges

The U.S. Department of Education is set to launch the application for student loan forgiveness later this month. However, the legal challenges it is facing could prevent the program.

5 separate lawsuits across the country intend to prevent the plan for happening. It is argued that the president overstepped his executive power by allowing such large scale debt relief without the approval from congress. Those against the plan will have to provide in court concrete details on how it will harm them. Arguments have been made as Biden’s Administration counter by explaining details and facts of the plan. The complaint has labeled the plan as “a massive taxing and spending policy passed without participation of the people’s representatives.”
