McConnell’s Plan: Stack the Courts and Legislate From the Bench "McConnell knows that the GOP is destined to become a minority party in the coming years. If they maintain their slight majority in the Senate, they have the power to obstruct anything a Democratic president tries to accomplish.

Supreme Court blocks student loan forgiveness
Robert's Supreme Court blocked the administration’s student loan forgiveness plan, rejecting a program aimed at delivering up to $20,000 of relief to millions of borrowers struggling with outstanding debt. The decision was 6-3 with Chief Justice John Roberts writing for the conservative supermajority.
- “The Court acts as though it is an arbiter of political and policy disputes, rather than of cases and controversies,” Justice Elena Kagan wrote. She accused the court of “once again” substituting “itself for Congress and the Executive Branch and the hundreds of millions of people they represent – in making this Nation’s most important, as well as most contested, policy decisions.”
- The court’s decision means that borrowers targeted by Biden’s plan will receive no relief. Monthly payment obligations that were paused during the Covid-19 pandemic.

- The plan would have assisted borrowers who make less than $125,000 a year ($250,000 for households) in 2020 or 2021. He argued the relief program was necessary in order to avoid a surge in defaults or delinquencies for those impacted by Covid who have outstanding loans. CNN
