House GOP passes resolution overturning student loan cancellation; Biden vows veto

WASHINGTON (AP) ó House Republicans passed a resolution on Wednesday that would overturn President Joe Bidenís student loan cancellation plan, but the White House has vowed to veto it and the plan remains on hold as the Supreme Court considers its fate.

It adds to the GOPís ongoing attack on Bidenís one-time student loan cancellation, which was halted in November in response to lawsuits from conservative opponents. The Supreme Court is now weighing the plan after hearing arguments in February. A decision is expected in the coming weeks.

Bidenís plan would cancel up to $20,000 in federal student loans for 43 million Americans. About 26 million had applied for the relief before courts intervened.

The latest Republican challenge employs the Congressional Review Act, which allows Congress to undo recently enacted executive branch regulations. Passing a resolution requires a simple majority in both chambers, but overriding a presidential veto requires two-thirds majorities in the House and Senate.

1. These stupid motherfuckers are pissing off the people they need most

in 2024, they've pissed off the women, the students, etc.

I look forward to their historic losses in 2024.

2. The GOP hate Americans.

They want to take away...

Social Security away from workers.
Disability away from disabled.
Food stamps from the Hungry.
Education from society.
Rights over their bodies from women.
Minds and hearts from LGBTQ.
People of colors' dignity.
Everyone's Right to Vote.

It would be easier to ask for what do they support; more money in the riches few hands, because the record wealth is not enough.

To Hell with the rest of us.

5. A threat of a veto is academic. The "resolution" would not pass the Senate.
