Tea Party Patriots Action Applauds Supreme Court Ruling Striking Down Biden’s Unconstitutional Student Loan Bailout Scam
Atlanta, GA – Today, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned the Biden administration’s $400 billion student loan bailout. In response, Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement:
“We thank the six justices who stood strong for one of the Founders’ foundational doctrines – the separation of powers, a principle that is necessary to the prevention of a tyrannical government.
“Before today, the Supreme Court had already overturned several major Biden policies because the Court determined that Biden had overstepped his Constitutional authority and usurped congressional powers. Those cases included the eviction moratorium, reinstating the Remain in Mexico policy, and the Covid vaccine mandate for private employers, among others.
“Congress never authorized the president to cancel the student loan debt of some 43 million debtors. In fact, Congress explicitly chose not to authorize it – not once, but twice.
“And within the last two weeks, both chambers of Congress explicitly voted to reaffirm their own power of the purse, and repeal Biden’s student loan bailout. Even more, the legislation they passed would prevent the Secretary of Education from launching any similar program in the future.
“This was a high-stakes case and the Court decided correctly. Our founders agonized over the deliberate separation of powers. The Supreme Court rightfully protected that key principle.”
