Johnson applauds Supreme Court ruling on student loan debt forgiveness

June 30, 2023

WASHINGTON, D.C.–South Dakota Congressman Dusty Johnson is applauding the Supreme Court’s Biden v. Nebraska decision, ruling President Biden’s plan to forgive $500 billion of student debt is unconstitutional.

Johnson said, “Forgiving tens of thousands of dollars in debt for those who haven’t made payments in years is insulting to the millions of Americans who have paid back every penny they borrowed.”

He said, “the cost of this debt forgiveness would be a baffling $500 billion or more. Our national debt is skyrocketing, and a policy like President Biden’s would only make it worse.”

Johnson has been opposed to the Administration’s policy to cancel student debt since it was announced.
