Apparently Biden isn’t done with his student loan forgiveness agenda

November 29 – More than 800,000 people with student loan debt are scheduled to get an email from President Joe Biden saying their debt is forgiven. 

Seems like magic, doesn’t it?  

Apparently programs like the Public Service Loan Forgiveness and income-driven repayment plans were used. 

The Biden administration has already forgiven $127 billion in student loan debt for people – and he wants to keep going, despite the fact that the Supreme Court said his original plan to get rid of $400 billion in student debt was unconstitutional. 

Pat Ryan of NewsTalk 103.7FM pointed out, “Listen, you sign the paper. I’m not obligated for people that didn’t go to college or went to a trade school or decided to go through other training, we are not obligated for your decisions when it comes to your loan. You pay that back. You signed the paper, now fulfill your obligation.”

Michele Jansen of NewsTalk 103.7FM said, “I think it’s outrageous obvious buying of votes because the way this thing is set up, you have to do 10 years and certain qualified payments and then for some of these and then after that it would be forgiven. So what does that put into the mind of the person who maybe has significant loans they want forgiven? Hey, if I fall into one of these categories, I certainly don’t want a Republican president getting in there. I want to keep this going and he’s doing this by setting regulatory rules, making things that just go around the process. Yes, there’s been some what should be very restricted avenues of where people get loan forgiveness, but those have been expanded over time. He’s going to expand them majorly. One I find incredibly disturbing is expanding who’s considered disabled and expanding the number of people who can give them that qualification, including moving away from doctors to well certified psychologists. Oh, my goodness. These fields have been so captured by equity ideology, they’re going to find all kinds of reasons to give people, hand people so-called reality. But when people are put under a disability identification, that’s a horrendous psychological position to put them in. I must remain somehow disabled and make myself a victim in order to get this forgiveness.”

Attorney Clint Barkdoll said, “I am not a fan of these forgiveness programs for all of the reasons you’re citing. We’ve interviewed experts over the last couple years talking about the economic consequences for the country related to these forgiveness programs that everyone is going to pay for. Now, we should say this 800,000 group that got notified by a letter or an email from the president yesterday, and there’s no doubt there’s a degree of vote buying going on here. I mean, the president wants his name tied to this program, but this group yesterday, this had been previously announced eight, nine, 10 months ago. This group is simply now being notified that the amount, the balance is set to zero. This is the group that the government is claiming these are borrowers who were not accurately credited for their student loan payments over many, many years and had they been properly and accurately credited, they would have qualified for forgiveness under the original terms of their loans. That whole thing has always been very curious to me, and I’ve never seen the report on how is it that there’s 800,000 plus borrowers who were not getting accurately credited for their monthly loan payments over a period of many years? But that’s what the Department of Education is claiming happened here, and they’re now quote, unquote, fixing the error by forgiving the balance of all of those loans, but we’re talking tens and tens of millions, if not hundreds of millions of dollars, just related to this group of 800,000. Remember, this is just a fraction of the $127 billion in total that he is forgiving for upwards of four million borrowers in total.”
