Joe Biden is losing things. He’s losing his faculties, he’s likely losing the House of Representatives and he just lost his student loan vote buying scam.
Biden’s student debt bailout was declared illegal by a federal judge in Texas on Thursday night, handing a devastating setback to the regime.
In response to a lawsuit brought by the Job Creators Network Foundation, which claimed that Biden’s student loan bailout violated federal law, U.S. District Judge Mark Pittman issued his decision.
“This case involves the question of whether Congress—through the HEROES Act—gave the Secretary authority to implement a Program that provides debt forgiveness to millions of student-loan borrowers, totaling over $400 billion,” Pittman wrote. “Whether the Program constitutes good public policy is not the role of this Court to determine. Still, no one can plausibly deny that it is either one of the largest delegations of legislative power to the executive branch, or one of the largest exercises of legislative power without congressional authority in the history of the United States.”
“In this country, we are not ruled by an all-powerful executive with a pen and a phone,” Pittman continued. “Instead, we are ruled by a Constitution that provides for three distinct and independent branches of government. As President James Madison warned, ‘[t]he accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in the same hands, whether of one, a few, or many, and whether hereditary, self-appointed, or elective, may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny.’ THE FEDERALIST NO. 47.”
“The Court is not blind to the current political division in our country,” he concluded. “But it is fundamental to the survival of our Republic that the separation of powers as outlined in our Constitution be preserved. And having interpreted the HEROES Act, the Court holds that it does not provide ‘clear congressional authorization’ for the Program proposed by the Secretary.”

The case was brought by the Job Creators Network on behalf of two borrowers at the end of last month. One of the borrowers did not qualify for the whole amount that was promised under the program, while the other borrower was judged ineligible altogether.
This is just the latest in Biden’s lazy efforts to supersede Congress and doing things the legal way.
I am very pleased that students will not get a free ride with their student loans. I got my degree and did the pay as you go plan. At the time I was working full time and going to school also we raised 2 children. When I graduated I was totally paid off. If I can do it why can’t they? Sure it was hard but if I can do it anyone can!
God Bless You!
I paid my way through college, my kids way through, and am now paying my grand kids as well. I love doing so, but I don’t want to be saddled with the debt of others that made bad decisions. Repaying their debts will teach them a valuable lesson.
I paid my way also — as it should be! Sure, it was a long time ago, but money is money. Give these kids something free and they’ll want more. More introduction to socialism? They’re mixed up enough already!
We should not be bailing out student debt. This is just an attempt to buy votes.
Amen! Anything so the Democrats can win..
Funny that this comes out couple days after the election. How many votes did democrats get with this illegal program. It served its purpose.
Why is it NEVER mentioned that AOC and most of the other liberal socialists in her “squad” will benefit themselves as they owe almost $300,000 between the lot and they are already making well over $200K a year on the taxpayer.
THis was illegal & unconstitutional from the start
You don’t get it, this was no threat, it was played to get what they wanted in the Nov 8th election. The idea he would do it, got him votes from the mindless ones in the last 3 generations. He played you all. The rats and rino lied their way to victory! You were abused and used! Vote buying, nothing more. I only hope president Trump makes the right choice and goes for speaker of the house! That would put the rt and rino in their place. The left thinks they won, they think the fight is over, when in fact, it just begun!
