White House extends student loan payment pause through June 2023 despite Biden pledge

The White House is extending the pause on federal student loan payments through the end of June 2023 in an effort to “alleviate uncertainty” for borrowers as the Biden administration battles at the Supreme Court to put President Joe Biden’s student loan handout into effect.

Biden announced in August that he will hand out $10,000 of federal student loan debt relief for certain borrowers making less than $125,000 per year and up to $20,000 for Pell Grant recipients.

The president on Tuesday said he is “confident” that his “student debt relief plan is legal.”

“But it’s on hold because Republican officials want to block it,” Biden tweeted, announcing that Education Secretary Miguel Cardona is “extending the payment pause to no later than June 30, 2023, giving the Supreme Court time to hear the case in its current term.”

The new announcement comes after Biden in August vowed to end the COVID-era student loan payment pause on Dec. 31, 2022.

“The student loan payments pause is going to end,” the president said on Aug. 25 after announcing his executive order canceling student loan debt for some Americans. “It’s time for payments to resume.”

The announcement comes after the Biden administration last week filed an emergency appeal to the Supreme Court, asking to preserve its order to cancel student loan debt. The Justice Department asked the high court to block previous rulings out of Texas and Missouri that ruled the program unconstitutional.

Well, it ain’t about the law, or the students, or even buying votes, though that’s a nice bonus. It’s about establishing the precedent that they don’t need no stinking law.

They could get a law authorizing this. It ain’t like this adminstration’s been shy about pushing spending through. Not like this congress has been reluctant, or slow. Hell, it’s lame-duck congress time. Go for it.

Sounds like President Pen And Phone’s #2 is following right along. Yet, The Orange Crush was the authoritarian? Check what he did and they squawked about — pulling in agencies and departments that report to him (on paper, anyway.) Apparently they’re supposed to be the authoritah.
