They are the biggest babies.
Lather, rinse, and repeat.
The Supreme Court once again went against the Democrats by striking down Biden’s student loan forgiveness plan.
Enter The Supreme Court Term Limits and Regular Appointments Act, first formulated in 2021.
Yes, Democrats are throwing a hissy fit because SCOTUS struck down the student loan forgiveness plan.
Reps. Ro Khanna (D-CA) and Don Beyer (D-VA) brought forth the bill on Monday. The bill would implement an 18-year term limit instead of a lifetime appointment:
“The Supreme Court’s decision to block student debt relief will put many hardworking Americans at risk of default and will be a disaster for our economy,” Khanna said in a statement.
“Our Founding Fathers intended for lifetime appointments to ensure impartiality. The decision today demonstrates how justices have become partisan and out of step with the American public. I’m proud to reintroduce The Supreme Court Term Limits and Regular Appointments Act to implement term limits to rebalance the Court and stop extreme partisanship.”
Except, there is no federal law that authorizes the forgiveness plan. It would have eliminated $400 billion in loan debt.
Show me where in the Constitution or federal laws that allow anyone to cancel student loans.
Six of the three justices couldn’t find anything, too:
The text of the HEROES Act does not authorize the [Education] Secretary’s loan forgiveness program. The Secretary’s power under the Act to “modify” does not permit “basic and fundamental changes in the scheme” designed by Congress. Instead, “modify” carries “a connotation of increment or limitation,” and must be read to mean “to change moderately or in minor fashion.” That is how the word is ordinarily used and defined, and the legal definition is no different.
But rules and laws don’t apply to Democrats. It’s partisanship when the rules go against them:
“For many Americans, the Supreme Court is a distant, secretive, unelected body that can make drastic changes in their lives without any accountability,” Beyer said. “Recent partisan decisions by the Supreme Court that destroyed historic protections for reproductive rights, voting rights and more have undermined public trust in the Court – even as inappropriate financial relationships between justices and conservative donors raised new questions about its integrity”.
No, you guys are partisan. Khanna and Beyer celebrated when SCOTUS limited the state government authority in elections.
You cannot make this up. The lack of self-awareness drives me insane.
SCOTUS stood up for free and fair elections in Moore v. Harper, preventing state legislatures from curtailing that. Now Congress needs to do its part and pass the John R. Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act.
