The Supreme Court has served as a roadblock to some of Joe Biden’s lawless acts.
But that roadblock could soon come down.
And you’ll be floored by this insane demand Supreme Court Justices just got hit with.
Joe Biden signed an illegal executive order before the Midterm elections canceling billions of dollars in student loan debt.
Biden’s scheme could force working-class Americans to pick up the cost for up to $40,000 in student loan debt of a married couple of Harvard educated doctors who make $250,000 per year.
After Republicans sued, the Supreme Court began oral arguments in the case.
Due to the court’s conservative majority, many on the Left are worried that the bailout scheme will be struck down.
The Washington Post’s editorial board admitted that Biden’s executive order canceling student loan debt was unconstitutional.
But the Post said the court should let the plan stand despite being illegal.
“The policy is expensive and ill-targeted, and made worse by the fact that Mr. Biden failed to get congressional approval for the $400 billion initiative,” the editorial board wrote. “But while we have criticized the Biden plan as a regressive and expensive mistake, we also believe it would be an overreach for the justices to strike it down. There are limits that restrict when and how the court can exercise its authority — and this is one of the instances in which it should recognize those limits,” the Post wrote.
The editorial board for the Post also admitted that Biden using the 2003 Heroes Act as his rationale was flimsy at best.
“When lawmakers passed [the Heroes Act] in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, it is unlikely they were envisioning a future president issuing audacious, across-the-board student loan relief, as opposed to, say, pausing loan payments while soldiers are deployed in a foreign war or helping hurricane survivors rebuild,” the Post editorial board added.
But since Republican-led states lack the standing to sue, the Post claimed the court may allow Biden to slide on that technicality.
“The administration’s opponents, which include several states and two individuals, ‘lack standing’ — that is, a direct, concrete stake in the outcome — to challenge the law, “ The Post’s editorial continued.
There is no limit on a President’s spending power if the Supreme Court allows Joe Biden to dump $400 billion from the Treasury to pay off student loan debt.
Such a ruling would open the door for Biden to unilaterally declare an emergency and increase welfare or other government handouts without Congressional approval.
