- The Senate voted 52-46 on Thursday to block President Joe Biden’s student loan relief program.
The legislation would repeal Biden’s debt relief program and resume federal student loan debt payments, which the administration had on pause.
- “Republicans’ cruel attempt to stand in the way of President Biden’s plans to provide relief to tens of millions of Americans suffering under the crushing weight of student loan debt is damaging to our economy and wildly out of touch with the financial realities facing working families,” Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) said.
- Biden has vowed to veto the measure, which has already pass in the GOP-led House.
- Borrowers are still waiting on a Supreme Court decision that will determine whether the student loan forgiveness program can take effect.
