South Carolina joins 10 other states in lawsuit against President Joe Biden

Columbia, South Carolina – South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson teamed up with 10 other states to take legal action against President Joe Biden’s new plan to forgive student loans. “Joe Biden does not have the ability to cancel debt. To keep an outlandish campaign promise, he abused power he didn’t have to implement an unlawful student debt cancellation program. We argued against it, and last year the U.S. Supreme Court agreed the program was unlawful,” said Attorney General Alan Wilson.

“Facing a tough reelection, Biden is scrambling again. He knows he doesn’t have the power to cancel debt and thinks he can find a loophole around that. We’ll continue pushing against his unlawful federal overreach, no matter how long it takes,” South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson added in the statement.

The lawsuit with these states argues that the U.S. Department of Education doesn’t have the right to change how students pay back their loans in a way that would cancel out over $156 million in student debt. They point out that the U.S. Supreme Court already said no to a similar plan by Biden last summer. According to the Court, the plan broke federal law because only Congress has the power to forgive student loans, which means using money from taxpayers.

Attorney General Wilson was also part of the group that brought this issue to the Supreme Court last year. This time, South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson is working together with Alabama, Alaska, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Montana, Nebraska, Texas, and Utah in this lawsuit.
