The Supreme Court says the Biden administration program to cancel student loans will remain blocked for now, but the justices have agreed to take up the case in late winter, probably February.

The court’s decision to hear arguments relatively quickly means it is likely to determine whether the widespread loan cancellations are legal by late June. That’s about two months before the newly extended pause on loan repayments is set to expire.

Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson believes the Biden plan should be stopped, and tells WIZM that it’s more proof that Biden’s policies are illegal.

    He does not have the authority; he admitted as much. However, how many individuals were invigorated to go vote by him waiting to announce his decision close to the election?
    As I wrote and was published in the LaCrosse Tribune; if you paid off your loans, if you went to a lessor school, if your parents paid by hitting their savings- your chumps.
