SCOTUS Heard Arguments Regarding Biden’s Student Debt Relief
Main arguments addressed opinions that the Biden administration was extending its authority arm too far.
The Supreme Court heard oral arguments in two cases that stand against President Biden’s student loan forgiveness program.
In the ‘Biden v. Nebraska’ case, six Republican-led states argued that the administration exceeded its authority by using the pandemic as a pretext to mask the true goal of fulfilling a campaign promise to erase student loan debt.
In the ‘Department of Education v. Brown’ case, two individuals who did not qualify for the full benefits of the program argued that the government failed to follow the proper rule-making process when the program was put into place.
Main arguments addressed opinions that the Biden administration was extending its authority arm too far and dismissing other’s votes regarding the forgiveness program as well as stated that it could harm some financially.
Other arguments surrounded opinions that the program is not fair in respect to those who have already paid off their debt.
If the program is approved, millions of borrowers will be granted $20 thousand to cover parts or all of their student loan debt.
