Something to Pass by Your Friends Who Voted for Biden to Get Their Student Loans Forgiven

12/28/20 College Fix:

President-elect Joe Biden recently said that he is “unlikely” to cancel student loans through executive order.

Speaking to a group of columnists last week, Biden reportedly said “it’s arguable that the president may have the executive power to forgive up to $50,000 in student debt.”

“Well, I think that’s pretty questionable. I’m unsure of that. I’d be unlikely to do that,” Biden said.

Karen Tumulty, a columnist for The Washington Post, wrote on Biden’s comments for a recent op-ed.

“Biden has said he would forgive $10,000 in student debt for all borrowers, and the rest of the debt for those who attended public colleges or historically Black colleges and universities and earn less than $125,000 a year,” CNBC reported in November.

Unlike Trump, politicians regard campaign promises as being what Christina Rossetti called "pie crust promises": easily made, easily broken.
