President Biden today returned to the White House from his vacation to make a big announcement about student loans (that might of course end up being declared unconstitutional):

Around 9 million borrowers could have their balances entirely cleared by Biden’s plan, according to higher education expert Mark Kantrowitz.

Biden’s decision to move ahead with $10,000 in student debt cancellation for borrowers who earn under $125,000 will cost the federal government around $244 billion, Kantrowitz estimated. The $20,000 in relief for Pell Grant recipients may add around another $120 billion to the government’s costs.

The unprecedented action by the White House of wiping out hundreds of billions of dollars in consumer debt follows years of advocacy pressure and recent months of heated debate among Biden administration officials.

Republican Sen. Mitt Romney, who voted to impeach Trump and said he did not vote for him in 2020, is troubled by what he’s seeing:

Maybe someday Romney will be able to bring himself to admit that Trump wasn’t so bad for the country… or maybe he won’t.

Definitely no mean tweets at the moment… at least not from Trump. Thanks a lot, Sen. Romney.
