CNN Stokes Rage at SCOTUS for Student Loan Scheme Hold-Up

News & Politics

Instead of admitting that President Biden’s student loan election bribe has no constitutional or legal merit, to begin with, CNN stoked rage at the U.S. Supreme Court for refusing to lift federal court injunctions that are preventing the “forgiveness” of certain student loans. The liberal outlet also lamented that the Biden administration had to send out letters disappointing those who already applied and were approved. All during a year when an attempt was already made on a justice’s life.

“A big new legal setback for the Biden administration tops our money lead. The Supreme Court is keeping a block on the student loan forgiveness plan,” anchor Jake Tapper said as he introduced justice correspondent Jessica Schneider. “Jessica, tell us more about this because it now seems it’s going to be many more months before we know the fate of the President’s debt relief plan.”

Schneider said that “the good news … is that the Supreme Court is actually fast-tracking these arguments,” but “The bad news is that this loan forgiveness program, it remains on hold” and borrowers “won’t be getting that anytime soon.”

She went on to bemoan that the Supreme Court has forced the Biden administration to send out letters that would disappoint those already approved by the program:

And the administration here, they’ve been sending out these letters basically telling students you’re not going to get the relief that we thought you would. So, the secretary of education sent out the letters to those who were approved. 16 million people have already been approved so far. Saying that, “unfortunately a number of lawsuits have been filed challenging the program which have blocked our ability to discharge your debt at present.” Those court challenges continue with the Supreme Court hearing the arguments.

According to Schneider, there was “a silver lining” in that the Biden administration was coming to the rescue with a continuation of the “loan pause.” “And they said that will be in effect for 60 days after all litigation concludes. So, that will be in effect at least until February, possibly as late as May or June here,” she boasted.

“Does the Biden administration have any other recourse?” Tapper followed up, trying to make the President look like a savior.

“They don’t,” Schneider lamented, making seem as though Biden was besieged from all sides. “This was the end of the line here. The 5th Circuit ruled against them actually just last night. The 8th Circuit ruled against them.”

Paraphrasing the legal appeals to the Supreme Court and their decision to keep the injunctions in place, Schneider cast the Supreme Court in the role of a heartless dream smasher:

They had gone to the Supreme Court to say we need some emergency relief here, can you take off these injunctions and let this program go into effect? The Supreme Court said we’re not going to lift these injunctions, we’re not going to let this program go back into effect. We will throw you a bone, we’ll hear arguments on the case.

This CNN segment stoked hatred against an American institution that already saw an attempt against the life of Justice Brett Kavanaugh and his family earlier this year. At the time, CNN tried to suggest the man who attempted to kill them didn’t have a weapon “at all.”

This effort to stoke hate against the Supreme Court was made possible because of lucrative sponsorships from the US Postal Service and United Healthcare. Their contact information is linked.

CNN’s The Lead
December 1, 2022
5:06:22 p.m. Eastern

JAKE TAPPER: A big new legal setback for the Biden administration tops our money lead. The Supreme Court is keeping a block on the student loan forgiveness plan. Let’s bring in CNN’s Jessica Schneider.

Jessica, tell us more about this, because it now seems it’s going to be many more months before we know the fate of the President’s debt relief plan.

JESSICA SCHNEIDER: Right. It’s on hold until at least February, Jake. So, the good news for the Biden administration here is that the Supreme Court is actually fast-tracking these arguments. They’ll hear them in February, which is quicker than they would’ve. The bad news is that this loan forgiveness program, it remains on hold.

So, for all those student borrowers who were counting on maybe between $10,000 and $20,000 in debt relief, they won’t be getting that anytime soon. They’ll have to wait until the Supreme Court ultimately makes the decision.

And the administration here, they’ve been sending out these letters basically telling students you’re not going to get the relief that we thought you would. So, the secretary of education sent out the letters to those who were approved. 16 million people have already been approved so far. Saying that, “unfortunately a number of lawsuits have been filed challenging the program which have blocked our ability to discharge your debt at present.” Those court challenges continue with the Supreme Court hearing the arguments.

There is a silver lining here, though. The Biden administration had put in place a loan pause that was back because of COVID. Certain borrowers didn’t have to pay their loans. They’ve now extended that pause. So, certain borrowers will not have to pay any loans back. And they said that will be in effect for 60 days after all litigation concludes. So, that will be in effect at least until February, possibly as late as May or June here.

TAPPER: But on that block, at least until February when the Supreme Court hears — and probably beyond because they have to make a ruling, they have to make a decision. Does the Biden administration have any other recourse?

SCHNEIDER: They don’t. This was the end of the line here. The 5th Circuit ruled against them actually just last night. The 8th Circuit ruled against them. They had gone to the Supreme Court to say we need some emergency relief here, can you take off these injunctions and let this program go into effect. The Supreme Court said we’re not going to lift these injunctions, we’re not going to let this program go back into effect. We will throw you a bone, we’ll hear arguments on the case.

But there’s really no other recourse at this point. The Biden administration will have to wait till February to argue in front of the justices.

TAPPER:  All right. Jessica Schneider, thanks so much. Appreciate it.
