On Monday, we brought you CNN’s hot take: Nine wealthy people who went to elite universities were going to decide if student debt would be canceled. On Tuesday, we told you how The Economist’s SCOTUS expert Steven Mazie said that declaring President Joe Biden’s student debt cancellation plan unconstitutional “could drive SCOTUS’s popularity still lower.” We didn’t realize it was a popularity contest.
Even Nancy Pelosi has stated that the president does not have the authority to cancel student debt, which is estimated to cost around $400 billion in revenue. Face it: If it were legal, it would have happened by now.
Rep. Jamaal Bowman posted this video of himself demanding the Supreme Court follow the law and cancel student debt.

Legislators have to pass a law before SCOTUS can “follow” it.

What law? Congress never passed a law regarding the forgiveness of student debt.

Please- there is NO law that allows for this. Quite the contrary, it is unconstitutional for the president to do this- his job is to carry out laws. The job of Congress is to make the laws- and no law requires this.

What law? Please be specific.

So comforting to know that our legislators understand the word "law"

Person who's job it is to write bills so they can become laws wants SCOTUS to follow law that doesn't exist.

There’s a law which requires the government to pay off debt incurred by people who agreed to pay it off?

As someone who would stand to benefit by this executive order passing, I can tell you it is 100% illegal and not going to be upheld.
