Biden student loan handout faces another emergency legal challenge
Where does money for student loan handouts come from? ‘Americans’ paychecks,’ Preston Cooper says
Foundation for Research on Equal Opportunity Senior Fellow Preston Cooper argues Biden’s student loan handout will force the Fed to raise rates.
The Supreme Court on Tuesday received another emergency application for an injunction on President Joe Biden’s student loan cancelation program, this time from a legal group on behalf of two Indiana borrowers.
In the filing submitted to Associate Justice Amy Coney Barrett, the Pacific Legal Foundation argued the program should be halted pending the appeal to prevent "irreparable harm" that it claimed would be caused by automatic debt cancelation. The plaintiffs – who originally qualified for automatic debt relief – and similar borrowers could face "increased state-tax liability" triggered by it, the group argued.

The plaintiffs have since been exempted, according to the filing, which alleged the Education Department added the mechanism for opting out of automatic cancelation amid lawsuits.
