Yesterday, President Biden announced a proposal that would forgive $10,000 in student loan debt to anyone earning under $125,000 a year.

The proposal would also forgive $20,000 in student loan debt to Pell Grant recipients.

Most Republicans immediately came out against the deal, saying it would worsen the country’s already bad inflation problem and that it was unfair to people who had already paid off their loans or chose not to attend college.

Surprisingly, a number of high-profile Democrats have announced their opposition to the proposal as well.

Maine Representative Jared Golden called the plan ‘out of touch’ and said it does not address the needs of average Americans.

Perhaps most shockingly, one of President Obama’s senior economic advisors, Jason Furman, was the harshest critic of the plan.

Furman said that the proposal would pour half a trillion dollars of gasoline on the ‘inflationary fire’ that already exists.

While Biden’s administration has made the argument that they have the right to unilaterally forgive student debt, Republicans have already announced that they will contest the proposal in court, saying that Biden is overstepping his Constitutional authority.
