In a much-needed show of constitutional sanity, the Supreme Court has shut down President Joe Biden’s audacious student loan handout. And guess who they used to shut it down? None other than the queen of liberal hypocrisy herself, Nancy Pelosi! Chief Justice John Roberts brilliantly cited Pelosi’s own words to reveal the truth behind Biden’s unconstitutional scheme.
Roberts, along with his conservative comrades Justices Thomas, Alito, Gorsuch, Kavanaugh, and Barrett, came together in a resounding 6-3 decision to strike down Biden’s plan. Meanwhile, the dissenting liberal justices, Sotomayor, Kagan, and Jackson, continue their predictable trend of prioritizing ideology over the rule of law.
What’s truly poetic about this ruling is the way Roberts used Pelosi’s own words to dismantle Biden’s fantasy of magically erasing student loan debt. Pelosi herself, in a moment of rare clarity, stated that the power to forgive debt lies solely in the hands of Congress. Imagine that! Even Pelosi recognizes the limitations of executive power, something Biden seems to conveniently forget.
The Republicans wasted no time in seizing this golden opportunity to expose Democrat hypocrisy. House Speaker Kevin McCarthy couldn’t resist a well-deserved jab at Pelosi, declaring his agreement with her for once. It’s a rare occasion when the truth slips out of a Democrat’s mouth, so we conservatives will relish in this moment.
Now, let’s dig into the background of this case. Biden’s exorbitant plan aimed to cancel up to $10,000 per federal student loan borrower or even up to $20,000 for those who received Pell Grants. But to qualify, borrowers needed to earn less than $125,000 per year if single or less than $250,000 per year if married. It’s clear that Biden was playing the class warfare card, attempting to win over his progressive base with promises of free money at the expense of hardworking taxpayers.
Unsurprisingly, the plan faced fierce opposition from both sides of the aisle. Critics, including some Democrats, argued that Biden lacked the constitutional authority to unilaterally cancel student loan debt. The Supreme Court’s ruling has now confirmed what we conservatives have been saying all along – a president can’t just wave a magic wand and erase trillions of dollars in debt without going through the proper legislative channels.
So, what’s next? Well, Biden knew from the start that his grandiose plan was destined to fail before the Supreme Court. This raises the question of how those hopeful borrowers who were promised free money will react. The truth is, Biden played them like a fiddle, peddling false hope to win votes during the 2022 midterm elections. It’s time for borrowers to realize that they won’t find financial relief in the form of a government handout. Personal responsibility and individual decision-making are far more reliable paths to success than relying on Uncle Sam to bail them out.

In the end, the Supreme Court’s ruling is a victory for the Constitution and a reminder that even the most powerful office in the land has its limitations. Biden’s attempt to circumvent Congress and act as a one-man show has been rightfully shut down. It’s a shame that it took the Supreme Court to remind him of the boundaries of his power, but that’s the reality of our system of checks and balances. Let’s hope this serves as a lesson to Biden and his fellow liberals that constitutional limitations exist for a reason and must be respected.
