The 8th Circuit US Appeals Court blocked Joe Biden’s student loan forgiveness program on Friday afternoon.
The court granted an emergency stay barring the discharge of any student debt until the court decides on a request for a longer-term injunction.
A U.S. appeals court on Friday temporarily blocked President Joe Biden's plan to cancel billions of dollars in college student debt, one day after a judge dismissed a Republican-led lawsuit by six states challenging the loan-forgiveness program.
U.S. District Judge Henry Autrey in St. Louis ruled on Thursday that while the six Republican-led states had raised “important and significant challenges to the debt relief plan,” he threw out their lawsuit on grounds they lacked the necessary legal standing to pursue the case.
Stupid should stop being rewarded. That’s how we got to where we are. It’s not about what you know, but who you know that has led to the mass incompetence we see now in every large corporation and govt agency.
It's wrong to forgive these loans.
The people who took them out promised to repay them as their way of avoiding paying their own money up-front. Many other people, like myself, paid for our education by working and taking that money I had earned and giving it to the College. I worked 40 hours a week to pay for my own education (admittedly back then schools were not as outrageously overpriced as they are today). A little less comfortable than going to college on somebody's else's money, but a lot easier now.
