I’m not one to say ‘I told you so,’ but…I told you so. While President Joe Biden’s student loan forgiveness plan will most likely have to go further up the judicial food chain in order to decide whether or not the plan itself is legal, I said that they would most likely strike the plan down following the midterms — I just didn’t think a judge would do so in the same week.

U.S. District Judge Mark Pittman determined that the Biden regime’s program to erase billions upon billions of dollars of student loan debt is unconstitutional.

According to Reuters:

A federal judge in Texas on Thursday ruled that President Joe Biden's plan to cancel hundreds of billions of dollars in student loan debt was unlawful and must be vacated, delivering a victory to conservative opponents of the program.

U.S. District Judge Mark Pittman, an appointee of former Republican President Donald Trump in Fort Worth, called the program an "unconstitutional exercise of Congress's legislative power" as he ruled in favor of two borrowers backed by a conservative advocacy group.

The Biden regime announced on August 24 that they would be going ahead with a plan to cancel at least $10,000 of student loan debt from borrowers that qualified, with forgiveness extending as high as $20,000 in total debt cancelation.
