Biden Explodes Over SCOTUS Ruling On Student Loans: ‘The Court Misinterpreted Constitution’
US President Joe Biden speaks about the US Supreme Court's decision overruling student debt forgiveness, in the Roosevelt Room of the White House in Washington, DC, on June 30, 2023. The court said Biden had overstepped his powers in cancelling more than $400 billion in debt, in an effort to alleviate the financial burden of education that hangs over many Americans decades after they finished their studies.

President Joe Biden raged at the U.S. Supreme Court on Friday over its ruling that his plan to bail out student loan borrowers was unlawful.

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled 6-3 that the HEROES Act did not give the White House authority to unilaterally forgive federally subsidized student loans.

“This program was all set to begin. The website had been set up,” Biden said. “The applications had been simplified so that it took less than five minutes to complete. Notices had been sent out to people about the relief they were eligible for. Sixteen million people — sixteen million people had already been approved. The money was literally about to go out the door.”

“And then, Republican elected officials and special interests stepped in. They said no — ‘no’ — literally snatching from the hands of millions of Americans thousands of dollars in student debt relief that was about to change their lives,” Biden claimed. “You know, these Republican officials just couldn’t bear the thought of providing relief for working-class and middle-class Americans. Republican state officials sued my administration, attempting to block relief, including for millions of their own constituents.”


Biden was asked be a reporter if he overstepped his authority after the Supreme Court ruled that he did.

“I think the Court misinterpreted the Constitution,” Biden claimed.



Biden was also asked why he gave “millions of borrowers false hope.”

“You’ve doubted your own authority here in the past,” the reporter added.

“I didn’t give any false hope,” he claimed. “The question was whether or not I would do even more than was requested. What I did, I thought was appropriate and was able to be done and would get done. I didn’t give borrowers false hope.”

“But the Republicans snatched away the hope that it was — they were given,” he claimed. “And it’s real — real hope.”
