Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh during yesterday’s oral arguments in the student loan bailout case.
Biden asserted the authority to “forgive” student loans at a cost to taxpayers of up to $400 billion as part of the emergency powers granted by Congress.
Shame on Congress for granting these dictatorial powers to the president during Covid in the first place. Double shame for not repealing them long ago.
