Student loan borrowers had been hopeful that Joe Biden’s plan to forgive up to $20K in loans per borrower would be implemented. However, the Supreme Court has now ruled against the Biden administration’s student loan debt cancellation plan. The court voted 6-3 to overturn the plan.
Meek Mill took to Twitter to express his reaction to the situation, highlighting the disparity between the funding allocated for education compared to that used for wars. He tweeted, “why are we having a problem with money for education but giving money away for war?? I’ve been seeing this narrative on the news since a child I’ll never understand it!”

President Biden shares a similar sentiment as Meek Mill. Following the Supreme Court’s decision, he released a statement expressing his disappointment and criticizing the Republican officials’ hypocrisy. Biden emphasized that while billions of dollars were allocated for pandemic-related loans to businesses, relief for hard-working Americans was blocked. He firmly believes that the Court’s decision is wrong and vows to explore alternative avenues for providing relief to middle-class families.
