HAPPENING NOW: Judge Shuts Biden Down

(DCWatchdog.com) – HAPPENING NOW: Last night, a federal judge in Texas ruled that President Joe Biden’s plan to cancel hundreds of billions of dollars in student loan debt is unconstitutional and must stop because Biden does not have the authority to act on his own in this matter.

As National Review reports in “Federal Judge Strikes Down Biden Student-Loan’ Forgiveness'”:

“A federal judge in Texas on Thursday blocked President Biden’s student-loan “forgiveness” plan in response to a lawsuit from the Job Creators Network Foundation (JCNF).

“The conservative advocacy group filed a suit in October arguing that the Biden administration violated federal procedures by not allowing borrowers to provide public comment before the program was unveiled.

Judge Mark Pittman of the Northern District of Texas called the plan an ‘unconstitutional exercise of Congress’s legislative power’ and noted the program failed to go through standard regulatory processes.” [emphasis added]

In his opinion, Pittman wrote:

“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.” [emphasis added]
