he Biden Department Of Education announced it would “automatically forgive” student loans to hundreds of thousands of followers despite a Supreme Court ruling striking down another student loan scheme just two weeks ago.

As reported by ABC News, Education Department officials announced Friday that are forgiving the debts of 804,000 borrowers to supposedly fix what they called “administration failures.”

These borrowers are individuals who have been paying their loans back through income-driven repayment plans. This allows debts to be forgiven once they’ve been paid for 20 or 25 years.

Education Secretary Miguel Cardona said in a statement these borrowers would be getting the forgiveness they deserve.

For far too long, borrowers fell through the cracks of a broken system that failed to keep accurate track of their progress towards forgiveness.By fixing past administrative failures, we are ensuring everyone gets the forgiveness they deserve, just as we have done for public servants, students who were cheated by their college and borrowers with permanent disabilities, including veterans.

Fixing these past mistakes will come at a cost to taxpayers. The DOE notes these fixes these past “administration failures” will total $39 billion.

According to CNBC:

The Biden administration announced Friday it would automatically forgive $39 billion in student debt for 804,000 borrowers. The relief is a result of fixes to the student loan system’s income-driven repayment plans. Under those repayment plans, borrowers get any remaining debt canceled by the government after they have made payments for 20 years or 25 years, depending on when they borrowed, and their loan and plan type.

In the past, payments that should have moved a borrower closer to being debt-free were not accounted for, according to the Biden administration. “For far too long, borrowers fell through the cracks of a broken system that failed to keep accurate track of their progress towards forgiveness,” U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona said in a statement.

To bring people over the line for forgiveness, the Biden administration counted payments for borrowers who’d paused their payments in certain deferments and forbearances and those who’d made partial or late payments.

These 804,000 borrowers will be notified on Friday by the Department of Education and relief will begin 30 days later. Individuals who do not want debts discharged are encouraged contact their loan service providers.

This new plan is part of previous “fixes” to other programs the Regime believes were failing borrowers. ABC News notes that this includes $45 billion to people enrolled in Public Service Loan Forgiveness who weren’t getting the debt relief and $22 billion to borrowers who were defrauded by for-profit colleges.

The move by the Education Department is quite audacious considering the Supreme Court struck down Joe Biden’s lawless program to cancel debt relief back in June.

There is no word yet on whether Biden’s newest student loan debt relief scheme will be challenged in the court system.✪
