The people are much more respected and represented on a state versus federal level, which is evident in a new lawsuit filed by seven states against the power abuse of the Biden administration.
Biden’s student loan forgiveness plan is only plausible through an executive order. His administration has been able to push through the order through two roundabouts: claiming it’s related to the pandemic national emergency and using the Higher Education Relief Opportunities for Students (HEROES) Act of 2003, a bill that was passed in response to the 9/11 attacks.
It was not passed by Congress like it should have been. Instead Biden gave himself the right to use emergency powers to bypass Congress. As a reminder, Biden says the pandemic is over, yet he and Democrat bureaucrats still don’t want to give up the advantageous powers that came with the pandemic.
A lawsuit was filed Thursday by attorneys general from Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska and South Carolina, requesting that the program be shut down.
The suit asserts the student loan plan is “not remotely tailored to address the effects of the pandemic on federal student loan borrowers.”
Arizona joined the cause with a lawsuit filed as well, and more states could join the efforts.
Already, the DOE has pulled back the extensive eligibility. Now, student loans owned by private entities will not qualify.
This is the power of the states, of We the People, the grassroots. We may not have a say in the Washington arena, but the state level allows for much more representation. It's at this level that we can hold federal government accountable.
A new report this week from the Congressional Budget Office finds that the loan forgiveness plan will cost an estimated $400 billion over the next 30 years.
Will Biden and the progressives advocating for more and more spending be fronting these costs for the next 30 years?
Imagine having the authority to tack on hundreds of millions of dollars to the public’s debt with the stroke of a pen. That’s exactly what Biden did when he signed the executive order, something not intended under the powers granted by the Forefathers.
The states are a safeguard against federal abuses, just as Article V is a safeguard against a tyrannical government. Combine the states and Article V together and we have a solution for the future of our nation – a Convention of States.
