Biden’s Student Loan Forgiveness Plan Will Face Legal Hurdles and Political Blowback Ahead of Midterm Elections

From a Wall Street Journal story by Andrew Restuccia and Gabriel T. Rubin headlined ” Biden’s Student Loan Forgiveness Plan to Cancel Up to $20,000 in Debt for Millions”:

President Biden will forgive up to $20,000 in federal student loan debt for tens of millions of Americans, a move that will provide unprecedented relief for borrowers but is certain to draw legal challenges and political pushback.

Following more than a year of internal debate, the president said Wednesday that he will cancel $10,000 in federal student loan debt for borrowers making under $125,000 a year or couples making less than $250,000 a year. In addition, those who receive federal Pell Grants and make less than $125,000 a year would be eligible for total forgiveness of $20,000, Mr. Biden said.
