The Biden administration is extending the student loan freeze for another seven months because apparently Biden can just do whatever he wants now

Seriously this is just embarrassing on an international level. Total administrative chaos mixed with extralegal government-by-fiat. ...

Seriously — this is just ridiculous. I mean, the loan forgiveness thing seems patently unconstitutional. But even the nonstop, never-ending freezes seem completely out of the purview of the president himself.

Where does one man get the authority to control the debt of 40,000,000 Americans?

The students loans will NOT be forgiven!

They are a major ASSET of the Federal Reserve.

Biden is just lying, just like he lied about giving a $2,000 covid relief check once he got "elected" (or installed).

Congress gave him the authority when they passed the HEROES act.

Congress has delegated an absurd amount of discretion to the Executive Branch. Basically because Congress Critters have basically no knowledge of how things work in practicality. They allow Departments and Agencies of the Executive Branch to make rules and regulations that have the force of laws.

Under the HEROES Act they gave the president complete control over the terms and conditions of the Student Loan program. So, yes, he can cancel the debt.

We will see if the Supreme Court upholds the law giving the president this authority.

This is one of many reasons the "Emergency" has been prolonged.

This is a major problem with our system the founders didn't foresee.

An era when the Treasury department would be more than a few dozen clerks.

Did the Senate ever vote on the HEROES Act? The bill does not become law until the Senate also passes it.

Congress. Congress delegates too much to the other two branches.

If the Constitution were strictly followed, about 90%, or more, of the Federal Government would have to be shut down.

There are numerous departments of the government which are likely unconstitutional.
1. housing
2. education
3. energy
4. FBI
5. IRS

In the "good old days" there was no IRS, no ATF, no FBI. Taxes on tobacco, liquor spirits and foreign goods tariffs were collected, and there was no income tax.
WWI, women's right to vote, Prohibition were the beginning of the downward spiral.
The 14th Amendment does not confer automatic citizenship to the children of people here illegally according the the correct reading of it.
The whole thing is scary; the USA is being more controlled by asshole bureaucrats like Fauci every day.

The constitution was a mistake and most things in the anti-federalist papers have come to pass

We would either be better off, or possibly speaking German if the congress had stuck with the articles of confederation.

Under those terms the Central government was inferior to the states with no real codified method of changing that

The foreign occupied foreign city state of Washington DC does not follow the Constitution, it interprets the Constitution at its pleasure for the chattels known as the citizens of the Republic of the United States. Otherwise, loosey goosey, corruption rampant Roman Law administers the law of DC, and British Maritime law is reserved for the slave chattels.
