Sen Elizabeth Warren recently tweeted, “Let’s be clear: President Biden has the legal authority to cancel student debt.” Generally, anytime someone starts a sentence with “let’s be clear,” whatever follows is going to be a lie. A couple of weeks ago a “MAGA” judge (according to Sen. Chuck Schumer) halted the implementation of President Biden’s student debt “cancellation” plan that was clearly a ploy to get midterm votes. The case went to a federal appeals court, which issued a nationwide injunction temporarily barring the Biden administration’s student loan debt relief program.
Now that the midterms are over we haven’t heard Biden talk a lot about student debt cancellation, which would cost Americans something like $400 billion. That’s even more than we’ve sent to Ukraine.
Congressman Mondaire Jones says he’s a lawyer by trade, and Biden absolutely does have the authority to cancel student debt, no matter what those far-right, activist judges say.
I’m a lawyer by trade. I know how to read the law.
President Biden has the legal authority to cancel student debt—no matter what these far-right, activist judges have to say about it.

He even said he didn’t have the authority to do it before he decided he need it for the midterms.

He cited the COVID-19 national emergency as his reason for canceling student debt, after telling “60 Minutes” that “the pandemic is over.”
He’s a lawyer so he knows better than the Justices. 🤡

Tell that to Nancy Pelosi, a lawmaker, who says he doesn’t
— Anthony Brian Logan (ABL) 🇺🇸 (@ANTHONYBLOGAN) November 23, 2022
Heres Pelosi herself saying that Biden doesn’t have that power. And now you’re saying that you know more than a federal judge?
You’re a lawyer? 🤣🤣🤣https://t.co/ui4hQS8pYr

There are tens of thousands of lawyers by trade. Obviously, you are not one of the good ones, which would explain why you work in government.

I’m guessing you were at the bottom of your class or skipped the one about separation of power??

Get back to us when you’ve secured a position on the Supreme Court, counselor.

You must be a horrible lawyer. Because he absolutely does not have that Constitutional authority.

The courts disagree with you and ruled as such. Those who took out the loans are legally bound to repay them with interest
— RogueOne (@roguesquadon75) November 23, 2022
There are a lot of lawyers out there. The good ones remain in practice, the not so good, go into politics.

Wait till you hear what “far-right activist judges” used to do as a “trade.”

Biden is not going to win this one, and he didn’t need to … he just needed the votes.
