Joe Biden was desperate to help Democrats by any means necessary in the run up to the 2022 midterms.
He even issued an unconstitutional executive order to motivate turnout with Democrats’ base of college-educated voters.
And now the leader of the largest teachers’ union in the country is melting down at the Supreme Court while fighting for Biden’s legacy.
Biden rules with a pen and a phone
One of President Joe Biden’s biggest usurpations of power since entering the White House came last Summer when he unilaterally chose to cancel billions of dollars in student loan debt without the consent of Congress.
Through an executive order, President Biden initiated one of the largest transfers of wealth in world history.
He stole upwards of a trillion dollars from American workers who didn’t go to college, or who had sacrificed and worked hard to pay off their student loan debt.
And then turned around and put it on a silver platter for his base of liberal arts majors who graduated with useless degrees like gender studies and had no intentions of paying back their debt.
The President of the United States does have the power to pause student loan payments, as Biden has done since he first stepped foot in the Oval Office.
However, canceling loans would effectively be a budgetary move, requiring an act of Congress.
Even Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) admitted that the President did not have the authority to unilaterally “forgive” or cancel student loan debt.
“People think that the President of the United States has the power for debt forgiveness,” Pelosi said roughly one year before Biden’s historic abuse of power. “He does not. He can postpone. He can delay. But he does not have that power. That has to be an act of Congress.”
SCOTUS to decide future of Biden’s student loan bailout
And that’s why Biden’s unprecedented attempt to purchase votes ahead of the 2022 Midterms is being challenged in the courts.
And those legal battles have now made all the way up to the highest court in the land.
The Supreme Court of the United States will now decide the future of Biden’s unconstitutional wealth-transferring executive order.
And the President of the American Federation of Teachers has gone into full meltdown mode while arguing to keep the President’s massive student loan bailout in place.
Union boss is “pissed off” you don’t want to pay for someone else’ degree
Apparently, fat cat union boss Randi Weingarten is flipping her lid over construction workers and truck drivers not wanting to pay for future lawyers and woke corporate executives to party for four years, or more.
“Frankly, and this is what really pisses me off – during the pandemic, we understood that small businesses were hurting, and we helped them, and it didn’t go to the Supreme Court to challenge it,” Weingarten yelled. “Big businesses were hurting, and we helped them, and it didn’t go to the Supreme Court to challenge it.”
She’s correct, it didn’t – it went through Congress.
However, President Biden decided not to go through Congress to force many working class Americans to essentially pay for the college degrees and put thousands of dollars in the pockets of the useless middle managers above them.
The President knew he didn’t have the votes to pass his radical plans – so, he implemented them unilaterally.
Also, the government forced those businesses Weingarten maligns to shut down, whereas no student was forced to accept a loan to study 14th century French literature and participate in beer pong tournaments.
But according to Weingarten, it’s only fair that Americans who worked hard and sacrificed to pay off their student loans pay for the college experience of those who refused to do the same.
“All of a sudden, when it’s about our students, they challenge it, the corporations challenge it, the student loan lenders challenge it,” Weingarten screamed. “That is that not right, that is not fair, and that is what we are fighting as well when we say cancel student debt. This is about the people, and it is about the people’s future, and it is about all of your futures.”
While the White House awaits a ruling from the Supreme Court, President Biden has once again allowed borrowers to defer payments penalty-free until the end of next June.
Since Joe Biden took office, no one who owes student loan debt has been required to make any payment.
