Seven Reasons Not to Extend the Student Loan Repayment Pause

| Posted in E&W Blog

With the Biden administration’s radical student loan bailout stalled in court, rumors that President Biden will extend the student loan repayment pause are surfacing again. As of November, borrowers haven’t had to make a payment in 33 months; a further extension would be a bad idea. Here’s why: 1. We are no longer in a national emergency. Student loan repayments were put on hold because of COVID-1... Read more »

Workforce Pell Opens Pathways to Successful Careers

| Posted in E&W Blog

Today, the United States has more than 10 million job openings and more than six million unemployed individuals. Yet America’s skills gap is not new. The problem is that colleges and universities are not adequately preparing students to enter the workforce. Asking students to spend tens of thousands of dollars on postsecondary education, then making them essentially start from scratch upon enterin... Read more »

Commissioner Dhillon Will be Missed, Along With Her Commitment to Transparency

| Posted in E&W Blog

The resignation of Commissioner Janet Dhillon, former Chair of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), is a great loss for the agency and our country. Throughout her tenure, Dhillon made accountability and transparency a priority—something sorely lacking at EEOC. Dhillon proved that transparency and the success of EEOC go hand-in-hand. During her tenure, EEOC achieved record-breaking m... Read more »

Accountability, not Amnesty, is what America Needs

| Posted in E&W Blog

Recently, The Atlantic published an article calling for a pandemic amnesty for “what we did and said when we were in the dark about COVID.” Yet amnesty won’t eliminate the learning loss suffered by students kept out of the classroom, nor will it help the workers fired from their jobs for refusing vaccination. Government officials do not need amnesty; they need accountability. As an early and vocal... Read more »

Biden’s Drug-Pricing Scheme Harms Americans With Rare Diseases

| Posted in E&W Blog

President Biden spoke in South Florida on Tuesday, touting the so-called Inflation Reduction Act’s price controls on prescription drugs. He stated, “This year, we finally beat pharma. … Big pharma lost and Americans won.” This is blatantly false. While Democrats might have “won” a legislative victory—this was no win for Americans with rare diseases who may now never see cures for their disease bro... Read more »

Fraudsters Set to Rob the American People, With Biden’s Blessing

| Posted in E&W Blog

The Biden administration is practically asking for fraud. The rushed rollout of the student loan cancelation application fails to provide any kind of income verification—despite making the handout contingent on earning less than $125,000 annually. But we’ve seen similar scenarios before. During the pandemic, identity verification requirements for unemployment insurance were significantly loosened,... Read more »

Biden Claims to Put People Over Politics. Start Acting Like It.

| Posted in E&W Blog

In his speech today at Delaware State University, President Biden continued to tout his illegal student loan scam. Erasing up to $20,000 in federal student loan debt may sound like an act of compassion, but this gambit is a transfer of wealth from hardworking Americans to college educated elites—many of whom can afford to pay back their loans. By labeling this program as federal student loan “forg... Read more »

President Biden Gets an F on Jobs

| Posted in E&W Blog

President Biden gave a speech today touting his record on jobs. But the truth is Biden’s record on jobs falls flat. Real wages have not kept up with inflation for 17 consecutive months. In fact, workers’ take-home pay has been shrinking. Inflation-adjusted average hourly earnings fell 2.8 percent from August 2021 to August 2022. Many hardworking families are struggling to put food on the table and... Read more »

School Closures & Massive Learning Loss: An Education Nightmare

| Posted in E&W Blog

Reckless Democrat policies and prolonged school closures have put our students behind academically. According to the Nation’s Report Card, average reading scores for 9-year-olds declined five points in 2022—the largest average reading score decline since 1990. Math scores didn’t fare much better. In fact, a report from Harvard University’s Center for Education Policy Research found students who le... Read more »

Biden Declares “Pandemic is Over” But Still Pushes Illegal Student Loan Bailout

| Posted in E&W Blog

Democrats are always seeking new ways to expand federal authority, so it’s no surprise that Biden used the pandemic to circumvent Congress to advance radical policies, including a mass student loan bailout. What was surprising? The President recently declaring the pandemic was over. Welcome to 2022, Mr. President. Naturally, Committee Republicans assumed this declaration meant the White House was ...
