Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said Friday's Supreme Court decision on student loan forgiveness shows “callousness of the MAGA Republican-controlled Supreme Court,” and alludes to recent reports of Supreme Court justices receiving gifts from GOP donors.
“This disappointing and cruel ruling shows the callousness of the MAGA Republican-controlled Supreme Court. The hypocrisy is clear: as justices accept lavish, six-figure gifts, they don’t dare to help Americans saddled with student loan debt, instead siding with the powerful, big-monied interests," he said.
“The fight will not end here. The Biden administration has remaining legal routes to provide broad-based student debt cancellation. With the pause on student loan payments set to expire in weeks, I call upon the administration to do everything in its power to deliver for millions of working- and middle-class Americans struggling with student loan debt,” Schumer added.
