Judge Knocks Down Another Biden Failed Policy
Another one of President Biden’s failed policies has now been shot down in court. The socialist plan of Biden’s student loan “forgiveness” that was touted all through the midterm campaigns by Democrats has been deemed fraudulent and illegal.
The policy hit roadblocks from the beginning after the Supreme Court declined to get involved. The case was given to the 8th Circuit and it “put an administrative stay in place, stopping Biden from moving forward with any cancellation of student debt.”
And now just this week there was a new ruling from the federal bench which strikes down the student loan bailout, according to Fox Business.
A Texas federal judge struck down the president’s handout in a Thursday night ruling. The plan aimed to cancel up to $20,000 in student loan debt for those who received a Pell Grant and up to $10,000 for others who borrowed using federal student loans.
Judge Mark Pittman, a United States District Judge from Texas, wrote in his decision that our nation “is not ruled by an all-powerful executive with a pen and a phone.” He then focused on the primacy of the Constitution and the right roles of the branches of the federal government.
“Whether the Program constitutes good public policy is not the role of this Court to determine. Still, no one can plausibly deny that it is either one of the largest delegations of legislative power to the executive branch, or one of the largest exercises of legislative power without congressional authority in the history of the United States,” Judge Pittman wrote.
The ruling went further stating, “In this country, we are not ruled by an all-powerful executive with a pen and a phone. Instead, we are ruled by a Constitution that provides for three distinct and independent branches of government…The Court is not blind to the current political division in our country. But it is fundamental to the survival of our Republic that the separation of powers as outlined in our Constitution be preserved. And having interpreted the HEROES Act, the Court holds that it does not provide ‘clear congressional authorization’ for the Program proposed by the Secretary.”
