Joe Biden’s running roughshod over the Constitution.
But Biden got some bad news.
Now Clarence Thomas could deal Joe Biden a crushing defeat thanks to one huge lawsuit.
Joe Biden announced an illegal scheme to buy votes ahead of the midterm election by bailing out student loan debt.
Under the terms of Biden’s plan borrowers who earn up to $125,000 could see as much as $20,000 of student loan debt wiped out.
Married couples earning less than $249,000 would potentially see up to $40,000 in student loan debt transferred to the taxpayers.
The Congressional Budget Office estimated this generational theft would cost taxpayers at least $400 billion.
Some estimates put the real price tag of Biden looting the Treasury to pay off college-educated voters – now a core Democrat Party voting constituency – at $1 trillion.
Conservatives immediately raised legal objections to Joe Biden’s obviously unconstitutional bailout.
Only Congress has the power to make law.
Joe Biden cannot unilaterally decree a government bailout without legislation passed by the House of Representatives and the Senate.
And while the case against Biden’s student loan bailout was open and shut there was one big problem.
It revolved around finding a plaintiff with standing to sue.
Congressional Republicans can’t sue because Democrats control the majority and they will never vote to fund a lawsuit.
Student loan providers can’t sue because they are being paid, but instead of borrowers paying off their loans, taxpayers – including Americans who already paid off their loans or who never went to college – are now on the hook for the debt.
The Pacific Legal Foundation provided the answer.
Frank Garrison took out loans to pay for law school.
Garrison lives in Indiana which is treating the student loan bailout as taxable income.
This means Biden’s student loan bailout order imposed a financial injury on Garrison providing him standing to sue.
Pacific Legal Foundation attorney Caleb Kruckenberg described the case as open and shut.
“Congress did not authorize the executive branch to unilaterally cancel student debt,” Kruckenberg declared. “It’s flagrantly illegal for the executive branch to create a $500 billion program by press release, and without statutory authority or even the basic notice and comment procedure for new regulations.
“The administration’s slapdash, lawmaking-by-press-release approach to student debt cancellation threatens to leave tens of thousands of borrowers stuck with a tax bill on money they’ll never see in states like Indiana, where it will be taxed as income,” Kruckenberg continued.
Joe Biden’s attempted to impose similar power grabs before only to be stopped by the Supreme Court.
The Supreme Court struck down Joe Biden’s federal vaccine mandate and COVID eviction moratorium on the grounds that Biden usurped Congress’s authority by making law all by himself.
Should the student loan case get before the Supreme Court there is a strong chance Clarence Thomas and the conservative majority will slap down this attempt to rule by executive fiat.
