@EdWorkforceCmte to Hold Markup on CRA to Nullify Biden’s Student Loan Debt Scheme — Tomorrow at 10:15A.M.
WASHINGTON, D.C., May 9, 2023
Tomorrow at 10:15 a.m., the Education and the Workforce Committee will markup H.J. Res. 45, a Congressional Review Act resolution to overturn Biden’s student loan debt transfer scheme.
On March 17, 2023, the Government Accountability Office issued a legal decision finding that President Biden’s student loan bailout plan should have been submitted to Congress as a ‘rule.’ This decision reaffirmed Congress’ authority to conduct oversight over the president’s reckless proposal.
“Since his first day in office, President Biden has worked to circumvent the courts and congressional authority to provide backdoor free college through the student loan program. The president is leveraging the nation’s financial future with his radical agenda that, taken together, could end up costing taxpayers nearly $1 trillion,” said Education and the Workforce Committee Chairwoman Virginia Foxx (R-NC). “This is why it’s so important for Congress to pass this resolution and remind the president that he cannot act unilaterally like a dictator to get his way.”
