BREAKING: SCOTUS Issues Ruling On Biden’s Student Loan Bailout

(trendingpoliticsnews) – The victories keep on rolling for conservatives as the Supreme Court in a 6-3 decision struck down the Biden administration’s student loan bailout program in Biden v. Nebraska. The court essentially found that the administration went well beyond the authority granted to it by an act of Congress. Chief Justice Roberts handed down the majority opinion. He wrote “Last year, the Secretary of Education established the first comprehensive student loan forgiveness program, invoking the Higher Education Relief Opportunities for Students Act of 2003 (HEROES Act) for authority to do so. The Secretary’s plan canceled roughly $430 billion of federal student loan balances, completely erasing the debts of 20 million borrowers and lowering the median amount owed by the other 23 million from $29,400 to $13,600…Six States sued, arguing that the HEROES Act does not authorize the loan cancellation plan. We agree.”

As Greg Price observed humorously in the ruling, “Justice Roberts cited Nancy Pelosi in the majority opinion when she said Biden doesn’t have the power to cancel student debt.”

Justice Barrett issued a concurrence opinion where she noted that “[h]ere, enough of those indicators are present to demonstrate that the Secretary has gone far “beyond what Congress could reasonably be understood to have granted” in the HEROES Act…Our decision today does not “trump” the statutory text, nor does it make this Court the “arbiter” of “national policy….Instead, it gives Congress’s words their best reading.”

Amy Howe, a legal commentator at SCOTUSblog, observed that the value added by Barrett’s concurrence was that ‘she indicates that the major questions doctrine “reinforces” the majority’s conclusion “but is not necessary to it.’” She previously noted that Roberts had invoked ” the major questions doctrine — the idea that if Congress wants to give an administrative agency the power to make “decisions of vast economic and political significance,” it must say so clearly. But here there is no authorization, Roberts says, much less clear authorization.”

Dinesh D’Souza, a conservative filmmaker and commentator, heralded the decision as a “massive ruling.”

Sean Davis, the CEO of the Federalist magazine, wrote “SCOTUS has nuked Biden’s unconstitutional college debt cancellation scheme.”

Megyn Kelly, a journalist and former FOX show host, tweeted that it is “A spectacular day for Donald Trump whose three conservative picks for SCOTUS were integral to the historic decisions yesterday and today. Major feather in his cap and will likely (& rightfully) be touted by his campaign in coming months.”

A similar theme was taken up by Jack Posobiec, senior editor of Human Events. He wrote, “Under this Supreme Court Roe v Wade = GONE Affirmative Action = GONE Student Loan Forgiveness = GONE Constitutional Carry = SECURED Business Religious Freedom = SECURED Say those 4 little words: Thank you, Donald Trump.”

Richard Baris, a political pundit and pollster, concurred with such sentiments. He tweeted “Without a doubt” to statements that such rulings were the byproduct of the conservative justices picks by the Trump administration.
