Trump-Appointed Judge Strikes Down Joe Biden’s Student Loan Forgiveness Plan, Scolds Biden Team in Blistering Opinion

A federal judge ruled that Biden cannot use taxpayer money to pay school loans without a vote by Congress.

A Trump-appointed federal judge in Texas struck down Joe Biden’s plan to forgive $10,000 dollars of student debt for millions of Americans on Thursday. But, that was not enough for the judge who went on to explain the US Constitution to members of the lawless regime. United States District Judge Mark Pittman, scolded Biden in an epic rant, explaining to him that he did not have the right to forgive the debt without action from the House and an affirmative vote by the Senate.

It’s called the balance of power that the Founding Fathers set up to keep any one branch from becoming dictators. All spending must originate in the House of Representatives. Biden announced his plan in August and since then he has been roundly criticized by Republicans who made the same argument Judge Pittman made. Biden announced that he was canceling $10,000 dollars worth of student debt for borrowers and up to $20,000 for recipients of Pell Grants.

Judge Pittman wrote:

“In this country, we are not ruled by an all-powerful executive with a pen and a phone. Instead, we are ruled by a Constitution that provides for three distinct and independent branches of government. The Court is not blind to the current political division in our country. But it is fundamental to the survival of our Republic that the separation of powers as outlined in our Constitution be preserved. And having interpreted the HEROES Act, the Court holds that it does not provide ‘clear congressional authorization’ for the Program proposed by the Secretary.”

Fox News reported:

A federal judge in Texas struck down President Biden’s student loan handout in a Thursday night ruling.

“Whether the Program constitutes good public policy is not the role of this Court to determine. Still, no one can plausibly deny that it is either one of the largest delegations of legislative power to the executive branch, or one of the largest exercises of legislative power without congressional authority in the history of the United States,” United States District Judge Mark Pittman wrote.

Elaine Parker, President of Job Creators Network Foundation, which brought the lawsuit, reacted to the ruling on Thursday.

“The court has correctly ruled in favor of our motion and deemed the Biden student loan program illegal. The judge criticized the Biden Administration program, calling it ‘one of the largest exercises of legislative power without congressional authority in the history of the United States.’ This ruling protects the rule of law which requires all Americans to have their voices heard by their federal government,” Parker said.

“This attempted illegal student loan bailout would have done nothing to address the root cause of unaffordable tuition: greedy and bloated colleges that raise tuition far more than inflation year after year while sitting on $700 billion in endowments. We hope that the court’s decision today will lay the groundwork for real solutions to the student loan crisis.”

Unless Biden can get the lame-duck Congress to take action before the Republicans take over the House, it is unlikely he will be able to deliver on his promise. The planned forgiveness was unfair on the face of it, not just because so many people took out loans and were responsible for paying off what they owed but also because people who never went to college and do not make the type of wages college graduates make end up paying the bills.

    The ‘Trump appointed judge’ couldn’t come to a decision a week ago. Or two weeks ago. NOOOOO. He has to wait till AFTER the election. That’s how ‘Trump appointed judges’ DECIDE cases: When it almost has no basis on it. Right now biden comes out the martyr. SEEEE! I tried! The Republicans hate the ‘poor’ students. Someone should post this judges address for being so irresponsible..

    • Stealth says:

      Your an asshole! We should post YOUR address so people can come and take a dump on you!

    • CountryBoy says:

      Even Pelosi stated the Biden couldn’t do that.

    • Gerald Ladd says:

      Joseph, you sound like an asshole!

    • baggo says:

      Wow, you have a lot of hate inside you. You need a chill pill. It was against the law what Brandon tried to do. Brendon knew it and so did everyone else. It was a play for votes. He could care less about students unless he gets something in return. It’s called the Biden way. I paid my way through college and so did my kids. If the students are so smart, then get a good job and pay for it. If they received a subpar education, then sue the college. As far as the judge goes at least he knows the law. Our newest Supreme Court Judge doesn’t know the difference between a man and a woman. Thats the one you need to worry about.

    • Gene says:

      Joseph read what the judge said about the founders and the constitution. Learn from that. we surely don’t need another King George.

    • Marie says:

      If you post someone’s address, judge or anyone, we should do the same to you. Yo are a very dumb person to think that this is OK!

    • David says:

      Total discrimination even if congress goes along with it. Blatant pandering by fentanyljoe, US drug and trafficking’s kingpin. Everyone who has ever gone to college and even those who haven’t should get 20K, or better yet NOBODY. Debt is debt. You sign you pay. Otherwise we come after all of you bastards in government.

    • David says:

      Fentanyljoen the trafficer and drug importer couldn’t have waited to aderess this till after the election? Let’s get together joe the fentanly user and debate this in every way. Probably a lgbyQReberate student. Come on whinner, lets see how tough you are???

    • Gregory says:

      Joe,
      If they allow students to default on loans, what message does that send to everyone who owes money on any kind of loan? You know what that message is, it’s go ahead and don’t have any responsibility and expect others to bail those out who neither researched their ability to pay a loan, and or who don’t care if they default. Blame the intstitutions who are charging exhorbitant tuitions and not giving lower tuition to students in need.

    • akashara says:

      No one forces anyone to take out a student loan. If you choose to, you are agreeing to pay it back usually payments start nine months after graduation at least back in my day. The audacity to make this an issue about “poor” people is unreasonable. You can go to a trade school and work with your hands, but if you want to become a doctor, be ready to pay your hundred or so grand student loan back yourself. I paid mine back, why should I be forced to pay someone else’s? If you can’t tell that this was just another Democrat ploy to get votes, you haven’t been paying attention.

  2. wboehmer says:

    Oops!
    I guess those deadbeat students hoping to receive taxpayer handouts from Biden will have to put their plans on hold for using that money for travel and entertainment.

    • Stealth says:

      SOMEONE has to pay for this massive ‘debt’ and that ‘someones is YOU and ME! THAT’S why it is WRONG to forgive as Biden is trying to do.. We all get a certain amount of debt- we’re ALL responsible for our own debts-period!

  3. CountryBoy says:

    WHY is anybody surprised ??? Even Pelosi stated the Biden could NOT do that.

  4. Dennis W. Homolka CPA says:

    unfortunately as noted above, the waiting till after the election encouraged the young voters to go all out for the dems, those who have the outstanding loans should be required to pay them back just like thousands of students did before them. this unconstitutional ruling holds these students to an agreement they made and they sb held accountable. How many students struggled through college financially opting to work their way through in with multiple jobs, grants & scholorships that didnt ask, or even wanted their obligations paid for by taxpayers in any amount!

  5. DetroitDom says:

    The first problem is that govt is lending money for college tuition. This should be stopped immediately! When only private entities loan out the money, college tuition rates will plummet because, UNLIKE GOVT, private entities will NOT give you $100,000 for a degree in poetry or political science. They will only lend to those whose high school grades and other factors lean toward that student completing college and getting a worthwhile, money-earning degree.

    Secondly, this will force those who aren’t cut out for college to move towards jobs in the trades industry (Plumbers, Electricians, HVAC personnel, Construction, Welding, etc) and avoid digging themselves a financial hole they can’t get out of.

    • Marie says:

      I agree, it makes a lot of sense….so many go to college, only to party, and they do not learn any thing except CRT that the professors are teaching. They party, and we pay….i don’t think so.
      If yo owe money and you voted for any Democrats, you are a fool.! They promise knowing full well, that someone will stop them in their tracks and then they say, we are the good guys, we want to give you everything. Also just remember if the government give you 20K you and I will pay the government back 50K ! You get no free lunch! And we are sick of paying for welfare recipients, and social programs because others are too lazy to get a job or get a decent education.

  6. Ron C says:

    This nation wasn’t founded on vote buying from the weak minded. Get a job and pay off your own loans, parasites

  7. Tom says:

    The court got it right.

  8. Doug Litchfield says:

    Lesson learned for mush minded students who were promised the moon by empty promises from democrats. They never deliver anything useful, just mayhem. You can bank on that!!!

  9. Pill says:

    None of us know when this was filed. We do know that it takes months sometime for it to reach the judge. I say ‘ good for this judge.’ And with biden throwing balls out left and right who can keep up with the man who thinks he’s God.

  10. Jesse says:

    As a Student loan holder I say make everyone with one pay it back. Forgiving it will only hurt the very people it is supposed to help. It was only a Vote buying attempt by Pedo Joe to help Democraps in the Midterms.

  11. The American People had better wake up , if those Democrats gets away with the Tax Payers having to pay for these College students Loans the Dems will come up with these Credit Card bills the People can`t or won`t pay we the People will wind up paying those Bills !! The last I heard those Credit Card bills were close to a Trillion Dollars and growing ! Don`t forget about the Cars and Houses that are being turned in because the People can`t pay for them !! I am sure those Democrats will be asking all of us Tax Payers to pay all of that too. Think about all of this !!

  12. Daniel Passer says:

    Kudos to Judge Mark Pittman for having the courage to make a judicial ruling according to our constitutional law – despite the fact that evil, treasonous democrat leaders along with the evil deep state want to tear up, trash and burn our treasured United States Constitution and Declaration of Independence, as evidenced, at a minimum, by the evil democrat leaders and the evil deep state’s stubborn refusal to finish the border wall in order to continue allowing the ongoing invasion of drug dealers, terrorists, and violent criminals at our southern border).

  13. Charles says:

    My dad taught me when I was very young that nothing is free. Like someone gives you a free animal. Someone has t pay the food bill, vet bill, etc…There is always a price somewhere down the line getting stuck paying the bill. Personally, I believe this was a ploy by the democrat, knowing full well this was indeed illegal and they knew this. The same thing goes for the abortion issue.. The Supreme Court again nailed this one. Forcing States to make a stand. Believe it or not many folks don’t want blood on their hands. Many are women and not just men. It is somewhat odd that the abortion issue was slated for midterm making sure that they remove the heat off of biden . Now the mid-term is over biden said that he will do nothing different on the economy or drilling The only good thing is that they are stuck in the same garbage bin that we are, Nice having TDS so bad you would vote against what you know is right just because you hate Trump and shooting yourself in the foot in the process..
