When you make promises to someone and you know that you cannot fulfill all of them, you have to be really careful about the ones that choose to leave to the side.
Imagine if your parents told you that you could have pizza on Friday and that on Saturday you were going to go to an amusement park. Midway through the week, your folks realize that they can only do one of them. Which do you think would make you madder if they couldn’t do? Exactly…
That being said, Joe Biden doesn’t have very good situational awareness when it comes to the things that he tells people he is going to do and the things that he ends up doing. It’s pretty sad watching a guy in such mental decline.
Biden says he won’t forgive $50,000 of student loan debt. Many Democrats have been pushing for $50,000 in student loan debt forgiveness, but Biden said Tuesday ‘I will not make that happen.’
President Joe Biden said Tuesday “I will not make that happen” when asked during a CNN Town Hall how he would increase his proposal for student loan debt forgiveness from $10,000 to $50,000. The answer received an unfavorable response from Democrats pushing for the higher amount.
Biden reiterated his call for tuition-free community college and for free tuition at state universities for students whose families make less than $125,000. He said he’s also willing to eliminate interest on student loan debt.
Sixteen U.S. Senators and 46 House members have signed onto a resolution calling on Biden to cancel $50,000 in student loan debt using existing authority under the Higher Education Act. Biden stated he does not think he has the authority to do it via executive order. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., disagreed with that assessment Wednesday.
“Presidents Obama and Trump used their executive authority to cancel student loan debt. The Biden administration has said it is reviewing options for cancelling up to $50,000 in student debt by executive action, and we are confident they will agree with the standards Obama and Trump used as well as leading legal experts who have concluded that the administration has broad authority to immediately deliver much-needed relief to millions of Americans,” they said in a joint statement.
