Biden Wants to Buy Votes with Taxpayer Dollars by Forgiving Student Debt

Creative Commons

When Joe Biden tried to forgive student debt the first time, the Supreme Court struck it down.

Now he's trying it again.

The Hill reports, "President Joe Biden said Monday that college graduates would see 'life-changing' relief from his new plan to ease debt burdens for more than 30 million borrowers, the latest attempt by the Democratic president to make good on a campaign promise that could buoy his standing with young voters."


"Biden detailed the initiative, which has been in the works for months, during a trip to Wisconsin, one of a handful of battleground states that could decide the outcome of Biden’s likely rematch with Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee," The Hill noted.

The story continued:

Biden’s trip comes less than a week after primary voting in Wisconsin that highlighted political weaknesses for Biden as he prepares for the general election. More than 48,000 Democratic voters chose “uninstructed” instead of Biden, more than double his narrow margin of victory in the state in 2020...
But Biden’s results, which echoed similar protest votes in states like Michigan and Minnesota, have rattled Democrats who are eager to solidify the coalition that catapulted him into the White House in the first place.
A critical fracture has been the war in the Middle East. Young voters are more likely to disapprove of Biden’s enduring support for Israel’s military operation in Gaza, which has caused heavy casualties among Palestinian civilians.
Some have also been impatient with Biden’s attempts to wipe away student loan debt.

Republican Sen. Bill Cassidy called this what it really is, “This is an unfair ploy to buy votes before an election and does absolutely nothing to address the high cost of education that puts young people right back into debt."


Not to mention, what about all those hardworking parents who paid for the children's education or even students who might have worked their way through school?

Expect Team Biden to attempt every stunt possible between now and November.

This is just their latest.
