The Biden administration is extending the student loan freeze for another seven months because apparently Biden can just do whatever he wants now

Seriously this is just embarrassing on an international level. Total administrative chaos mixed with extralegal government-by-fiat.

The Biden administration is yet again extending the pause on federal student loan payments, a benefit that began in March 2020 to help people who were struggling financially due to the Covid-19 pandemic, a source familiar with the plan said.

The Department of Education will announce it is extending the freeze another six months with the first payments due two months after June 30, the source said, unless a Supreme Court decision on the president's student loan relief program comes first.

The administration had previously said the most recent extension would be the last, and payments were scheduled to restart in January.

The old man himself confirmed it on Tuesday:

Seriously — this is just ridiculous. I mean, the loan forgiveness thing seems patently unconstitutional. But even the nonstop, never-ending freezes seem completely out of the purview of the president himself.

Where does one man get the authority to control the debt of 40,000,000 Americans?

Is there nobody in our government willing to just stand up against this unilateral nonsense and say:

I mean for real.
