Biden student loan forgiveness challenged again

This one based on taxpayer standing.

The WI Institute for Law & Liberty is filing a lawsuit today against the Biden administration over student loan forgiveness. This suit is the first (and potentially only) lawsuit challenging the program based on taxpayer standing, according to WILL. Their suit alleges three counts:

1. Violation of the constitutional separation of powers – that an executive administration has no legal authority to unilaterally create a program that promises to wipe away more than $1 trillion of assets held by the U.S. Treasury, without approval from Congress.

2. Violation of the Equal Protection Doctrine – that the student aid debt relief program is motivated by a desire to “advance racial equity” and “narrow the racial wealth gap,” according to White House documents, and that to achieve equity, the program is “more likely” to help “black students,” “black borrowers,” and “other borrowers of color.”

3. Violation of the Administrative Procedures Act – that the program was authorized by the 9/11-era HEROES Act and that officials from the previous two administrations have determined that the President two administrations have determined that the President does not have the power to forgive loans in this manner.

WILL is also filing motions for a preliminary injunction – as well as a restraining order until the injunction is granted – to prevent the forgiveness or cancellation of any federal student loan before a decision is reached, referring to a decision made by the court in previous WILL suit (Faust v. Vilsack) by quoting, “purpose of a temporary restraining order is to preserve the status quo pending a decision on the merits. Once a loan is forgiven, it cannot easily be undone. A narrow temporary restraining order resolves any threat of serious delay.” WILL argues the purpose of the motions for a restraining order and preliminary injunction are “to prevent something quite irreversible and damaging.”

The suit is being filed on behalf of the Brown County Taxpayers Association, and the plaintiffs are President Biden, Education Secretary Miguel Cardona, COO of Federal Student Aid Richard Cordray, U.S. Dept. of Education, and the Office of Federal Student Aid. The suit was filed early this afternoon in the US District Court in Green Bay.

    About time. If the Biden regime gets away with this travesty, it’s only a matter of time before they start forgiving every other type of loan (at least those made to racial minorities). For all their endless nattering about “root causes” and “structural inequity,” progressives never take aim at the root cause of student indebtedness, which is the ongoing scam that colleges and universities have been perpetrating on students (and their parents) for decades by charging outlandish tuition and other fees and conferring degrees guaranteed to impoverish those who major in bogus “disciplines” like queer dance theory. If UW-Madison got rid of made-up departments and programs created to appease the perpetually aggrieved, they would save enough money to be able to charge a tuition of $20 per semester. To say nothing of the money wasted on witch-hunts designed to root out every trace of racists like Fredric March and Porter Butts.

    Just the salaries for the football program exceeded 10.4 million. That’s before perks and bonuses. To say nothing of the rest of the programs. Chryst got fired and needed Brinks to haul the buy-out money away. Start controlling this massive grift

    To me, the worst part is that students have to put up with more increasingly mediocre professors as for a professor to step out of line and possibly offend some student might end his or her tenure at the university.–ZBhAXEiwAv-RNL6_L56gAl8w9GgQicIkLSxwHnyaXNNNgLDMr1XyLFo1WhNxJvA4rpBoCUJcQAvD_BwE

    And this from our own State of Wisconsin:

    Yeah, a professor could say the wrong thing to these snowflakes and they could loose their job. I can’t tell you how many times one of my bosses said, “You boy’s get off your butts and get back to work”.

    Some of us boy’s were white, and some of us were black. Some of the group even included women.

    Did we whine and cry to management, did we go to the news papers? No, that is because the job had to get done and most our bosses were right in the thick of things working their butts off to get the job done.

    My wife has substantial outstanding student loans. We are adamantly opposed to government forgiveness of this debt. We signed – we pay….

      Scott, you are a member of a rapidly diminishing species in this country: grownups. Your main characteristics are responsibility and integrity–qualities that those in charge are trying their best to extinguish in favor of dependency and grievance.

    Trying to educate generationally moronic, despicably ineducable Lefties is a fool’s errand, but here goes: U.W. FB’s profits fund the lion’s share of the AD budget, ergo, bankroll money-losing (READ: X-Chromosomal Unit) sports AND their scholarship athlete’s education.

    This says nothing of the $610 MILLION annual economic impact FB and other U.W. revenue producing sports have in the 77 Square Miles Surrounded By A Sea Of Reality specifically, and WESconsin generally.

    Anywho, in a further fruitless effort to bypass the crushing imbecility that afflicts a certain shut-in troll, let’s throw it over to a 07/28/2021 SanFranNan news conference for some ON TOPIC clarification.

    (bolds/caps/italics mine throuout)
    Quoth she: “People think that the President of the United States has the power for (student loan) debt forgiveness. HE DOES NOT. He can postpone. He can delay. BUT HE DOES NOT HAVE THAT POWER. THAT HAS TO BE AN ACT OF CONGRESS.

    But the difference between the President – THE PRESIDENT CAN’T DO IT. SO THAT’S NOT EVEN A DISCUSSION. Not everybody realizes that. BUT THE PRESIDENT CAN ONLY POSTPONE, DELAY, BUT NOT FORGIVE

    DementiaJoKe announced his “plan” over 13 months after that. Granted he’s Alzheimer-Addled, but his handlers are banking on the KNOWN FACT that his catastrophically undiscerning, pudding-pated base can’t find their over-sized @$$e$ with both hands.

    They’re right!

    Hey, I just heard on the radio that dementia Joke says he is going to run again in 2024.

    By then, with the way things have been going, I predict that the Biden economy will be in shambles and we will have either run away inflation or stagflation, masses of unemployed or underemployed people, many living on government subsidies, rampant crime with the great possibility of loosing ones life by just walking down the street of any and all cities.

    If this happens, and he is re-elected, all I can say is history does repeat itself.

    He should beware of the Ides of March.

    On another note: There are some cartoons I think that everyone should see about the 1930’s. They are posted at:

    I like the first one in particular as it tells the story of how the communists, and I would say the globalists, have long planned to ruin the economy of the United States.

    I would recommend that you enlarge it and read the “Plan of action for the U.S.”

    In my opinion, this is the failure we are now being set up for.

    Good for W.I.L.L., I support their efforts on this topic.

    President Biden has knowingly & intentionally violated the Constitution, he’s knowingly & intentionally exceeded the statutory power of his office and he’s knowingly & intentionally violated his oath of office and he’s done this multiple times. I smell an impeachment coming if the Republicans get control of the House and Senate. The problem I see with impeachment is, if it’s successful then Vice President Kamala Harris who is a moronic pure-blood progressive hack is waiting in the wings to be sworn in as President and if you think Biden is bad just wait until Harris has been in office for a few months.

        Out of all that’s contained in my comment and your only focus was to cherry pick out the word “if” and then make a Mr. Obvious statement about it? What a moron; the word “if” is always a big word in any political climate.

        Why don’t you post your moronic daily trolling nonsense over on Jonathan Turley’s blog for a few years instead of posting your nonsense here? Seriously Richard, you’d probably have a lot of fun trolling with the multitude of other regular internet trolls over there.


        • richard lesiak says:

          There was nothing in your comment other than some right-wing slobbering talking points. Looking at the quality of the candidates the gop has running the chance of taking over anything is a big “if”. Why don’t YOU post your opinions on your own failed blog and leave all the meaningless insults to crotch.


        • richard lesiak wrote, “There was nothing in your comment other than some right-wing slobbering talking points.”

          Just because you no longer retain the cognitive ability to effectively comprehend what’s written doesn’t mean that what’s written is “right wing slobbering talking points”. As usual, your comprehension skills and logic are a complete failure.

          Related Question: Did you forget that President Biden openly stated that what he was going to do regarding mandating vaccines was unconstitutional and the Supreme Court would strike it down and he did it anyway. President Biden intentionally violated the Constitution, it’s not an opinion, it’s a matter of record. This loan forgiveness order from President Biden is another flagrant unconstitutional action by President Biden and it’s a very intentional over stepping his power.

          Joe Biden once stated that “You can’t legislate by executive order unless you’re a dictator” but that is exactly what President Biden has been trying to do. President Biden is a hypocrite.

          richard lesiak wrote, “Looking at the quality of the candidates the gop has running the chance of taking over anything is a big “if”. “

          You’re welcome to your own opinion about the candidates but my statement about “if” stands upon a solid rhetorical foundation.

          I do post my opinions on my own blog you imbecile and my blog is not a failure, my blog is doing exactly what I put it there to do, and that Richard is store my opinions so I can share them with others in full via a link in related online discussions. What I do on this blog is comment on the contents of the blog (which you’ve shown an inability to do) and individual comments like yours.

          You’re welcome to your own opinions but not your own facts.
