A day ahead of the Georgia Senate runoff election, President Biden re-emphasized his promise to reduce the 'enormous debt' for students who graduated with student loans - and insisted it will overcome ongoing legal challenges.

'There's a whole lot of people affected and we're confident on the law,' Biden said during an interview on the Ryan Cameron Uncensored radio show, as first reported by National Review on Monday.

Biden's plan would cancel up to $20,000 in federal student debt for Pell Grant recipients and up to $10,000 for other student borrowers who make up to $125,000.

'What it (forgiveness) allows people to do is get a new start in life and it also helps the economy,' said the Democratic president about the pros of federal loan forgiveness.

Biden's bid to ensure federal student loan forgiveness comes after young voters and college graduates helped the Democratic Party including New York Senator Chuck Schumer becoming the Majority Leader in a blow to the GOP.
