Policy Violence? Biden Resisting Progressive Calls to Cancel Student Loan Debt

Author’s Take

So far, Biden is actually doing the right thing. He has admitted he does not have the authority to unilaterally cancel any amount of student debt and is waiting for Congress to pass legislation he can sign. Of course, that has not stopped him from attempting to implement policies he said he does not have the authority in the past.

With the Feb. 1 deadline, it remains to be seen if the Biden administration will attempt a last-minute Hail Mary on the issue.
