South Carolina Representative Ralph Norman said it is time for legislators to sue President Joe Biden to block the cancelation of hundreds of billions of dollars of student loan debt, challenging the plan on the grounds that it usurps the power of Congress to make laws. 

“I would jump all over this,” he said. “We will join together.”  He said members of Congress home for summer recess were hearing a lot of anger about the plan and suggested there is a growing number of legislators in the House who would lead in litigation. 

“I think other members of the Freedom Caucus, and to be honest with you, just members of Congress,” he said. “We are getting an earful. I think House and Senate, because this has really never been done before. And where do you stop it? Are you going to start making house payments? Forgiveness of debt? Are you going to do car payments? Where does it end?” 

Representative Norman said everyday Americans understand consequences, such as adding to inflation, and also have fundamental questions about fairness. President Biden “is intent on buying votes, which he thinks he will do,” Representative Norman said. “And it’s such a slap in the face of those who didn’t attend college. It’s a slap in the face for those who are… going to be saddled with this debt.” 

“The lawsuit will come,” he said.
