Joe Biden was coasting right along, until he wasn’t.
Democrats performed much better than anticipated in the midterm elections.
One of the reasons they did so was because young voters showed up.
This, of course, was because of the student loan forgiveness program.
Well, that program just got shut down by a Texas federal judge.
Texas to the Rescue
This program has been challenged before, but when it made its way to the Supreme Court, it was passed on by Justice Amy Coney Barrett.
Now that it has wound up in Texas, the Supreme Court was not needed.
And, if it does go to SCOTUS, Justice Alito awaits.
In Texas, judges understand the importance of the Constitution and stopping presidential overreach, which was something pointed out in Judge Mark Pittman’s ruling.
He wrote, “Whether the Program constitutes good public policy is not the role of this Court to determine.
“Still, 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
He continued, continued, “In this country, we are not ruled by an all-powerful executive with a pen and a phone. Instead, we are ruled by a Constitution that provides for three distinct and independent branches of government…The Court is not blind to the current political division in our country.
“But it is fundamental to the survival of our Republic that the separation of powers as outlined in our Constitution be preserved.
“And having interpreted the HEROES Act, the Court holds that it does not provide ‘clear congressional authorization’ for the Program proposed by the Secretary.”
Sorry, Joe, but you lose.
