Not only did the Supreme Court smack down President Biden’s shamelessly brazen overreach with regards to student debt, but they did so in an epic fashion with an awesome ruling.
In a 6-3 decision, the Supreme Court decided most affirmatively against the president in the hilariously titled Joseph R. Biden President of the United States, et al., Petitioners v. Nebraska, et al. case.
In other words, Biden and the deadbeats versus established state legislation and federal separation of powers.
In a detailed decision, the Supreme Court a host of more than legal justifications for its decisions, though the mainstream media has failed to advertise this reality to the masses.
Nonetheless, the real facts are in the decision, for those who care to read it.
Beginning with a reference to Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965, the Supreme Court noted that the act permits the Secretary of Education to either reduce or cancel loans in “certain, limited circumstances.”
However, the Court also notes that the current issue presented is whether or not scores of borrowers may receive blanket forgiveness under the Higher Education Relief Opportunities for Students Act of 2003 (HEROES Act), in a departure from the 1965 legislation.
The HEROES Act was designed to provide relief to actual war veterans, as evidenced by the year in which it was passed, coinciding with the invasion of Iraq.
The HEROES Act apparently has provisions for national emergencies as well, and Biden claimed that a pandemic effectively funded and supported by Dr. Fauci through the EcoHealth Alliance constituted a sufficient enough “national emergency” to cancel all student debt.
Including debt acquired (and ignored) for years before the pandemic.
Unsurprisingly, given the insanely blanket nature of Biden’s declaration, not to mention its total disregard for the separation of powers, six states subsequently sued, stressing that the HEROES Act does not provide sufficient authorization for blanket loan forgiveness.
And, as it turns out, the Supreme Court agrees.
“The authority to ‘modify’ statutes and regulations allows the Secretary to make modest adjustments and additions to existing provisions, not transform them. Prior to the COVID–19 pandemic, ‘modifications’ issued under the Act were minor and had limited effect. But the ‘modifications’ challenged here create a novel and fundamentally different loan forgiveness program. While Congress specified in the Education Act a few narrowly delineated situations that could qualify a borrower for loan discharge, the Secretary has extended such discharge to nearly every borrower in the country,” the decision notes.
Love it. “A novel and fundamentally different loan forgiveness program.”
Translation: Biden making a full-blown play at playing dictator.
Elsewhere in the decision, the Court noted how Biden does not have the authority to “rewrite that statute from the ground up,” underscoring one of the many ways in which the president is attempting to mimic the foreign dictators who indirectly invested in his presidency via Hunter.
Furthermore, the Court openly called out Democrats’ perverse sense of equity, especially when noting that Biden’s declaration held that “every borrower within the specified income cap automatically qualifies for debt cancellation, no matter their circumstances.”
In other words, the White House could care less about actually responsible individuals who repaid their loans while others waited around for a deadbeat administration to pay off their debts with others’ money, all in exchange for votes.
Alas for the deadbeats, the Supreme Court decided against enabling Biden to create “a whole new regime,” or “a novel and fundamentally different loan forgiveness program.”
The decision was met with widespread outrage in the media, as well as from the White House itself.
On his end, President Biden issued a ridiculous response to the Supreme Court ruling, filled with red herrings and other divisive commentary designed to deflect from the simple fact that the Court ruled in favor of the separation of powers, not in favor of Biden’s clearly desired authoritarianism.
“This fight is not over … The hypocrisy of Republican elected officials is stunning. They had no problem with billions in pandemic-related loans to businesses – including hundreds of thousands and in some cases millions of dollars for their own businesses. And those loans were forgiven. But when it came to providing relief to millions of hard-working Americans, they did everything in their power to stop it,” Biden ranted in an official statement.
Uh, Mr. President? Ever consider the fact that those “businesses” actually create jobs that power the economy that develop the jobs that are necessary to provide all the massive tax revenues that Democrats allegedly need in the first place?
Businesses will actually deliver a return on investment related to the loan – whining, snowflake students who expect the world to cater to them and their ever-changing, social media-driven demands? Not so much.
A massive loss is far more like it.
