Six Republican-led states which are challenging the Biden admministration’s student loan forgiveness program will be heading to the Supreme Court.
Earlier this month a federal appeals court in St. Louis sided with Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska and South Carolina, and issued an injunction blocking the plan to provide up to $20,000 in student-loan relief money to millions of individuals.
The Biden administration subsequently asked the Supreme Court to intervene. Solicitor General Elizabeth Prelogar asked the Supreme Court to lift the injunction.
“The Eighth Circuit’s erroneous injunction leaves millions of economically vulnerable borrowers in limbo, uncertain about the size of their debt and unable to make financial decisions with an accurate understanding of their future repayment obligations,” Prelogar, told the Supreme Court in a filing.
Prelogar told the court that if it denied relief, it should agree to consider the merits of the case instead.
CBS News reports:
The court said in a brief order that it will hear arguments in February, but will keep the program on hold for now. Last week, President Biden extended his pause on federal student loan payments until June 30, 2023, to give the court time to consider the dispute.
“We welcome the Supreme Court’s decision to hear the case on our student debt relief plan for middle and working class borrowers this February,” White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said. “This program is necessary to help over 40 million eligible Americans struggling under the burden of student loan debt recover from the pandemic and move forward with their lives. The program is also legal, supported by careful analysis from administration lawyers.”

Sunny Hostin of ‘The View’ says people misinterpret his legacy; ‘he was a radical and wanted wealth redistribution’
‘The View’ host Sunny Hostin took advantage of the national Holiday Martin Luther King Day in order to bend the narrative to her agenda. “I think the biggest problem with Martin Luther King’s legacy is that people misinterpret his legacy. They misinterpret what he was asking for” she said.
Not to worry, Hostin believes she has the authority and intelligence to explain to decades of people what King was really wanting.
Hostin went on to say, “While we always hear ‘I want my little girls and boys to be judged by the content of their character rather not by the color of their skin’ that’s all you ever hear anyone saying.”
“But he was a radical, he was deeply invested in economic equality and he was deeply invested in making sure that Black people got reparations and that there was wealth distribution, wealth redistribution.”
Sunny Hostin says "we have a long way to go" for MLK's dream to be a reality. She says people "misinterpret" his legacy and put too much emphasis on looking at a person's character rather than skin color.
She decries how people don't want to discuss his dream of reparations. pic.twitter.com/RzZ6eqKBlZ
