Student Loan Forgiveness Ruled Unconstitutional

A federal judge determines the president’s plan violates the Constitution’s separation of powers. 

President Biden’s administration was sued by two Americans, with the support of a small business group, over its student loan forgiveness plan. U.S. District Court Judge Mark Pittman ruled in favor of the plaintiffs, writing, “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.” 

He continued, “In this country, … we are ruled by a Constitution that provides for three distinct and independent branches of government. … It is fundamental to the survival of our Republic that the separation of powers as outlined in our Constitution be preserved.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For wisdom for U.S. district and appellate court judges as they hear and rule on cases regarding the Constitution and the rule of law.
  • For the president and his economic advisors as they pursue student loan relief.
  • For justices of the Supreme Court as they hear arguments and question the premises of cases.
