Biden 'actively plotting' ways to forgive student loans if Supreme Court ... trends now
The Supreme Court is getting ready to hand down a decision any day now on President Joe Biden's proposed student loan forgiveness plan – and progressives are scrambling to find a way to still wipe clean that debt.
Meanwhile, the group that launched one of the lawsuits that landed the resident's plan at the Supreme Court says that they will sue any workarounds the Biden administration tries to jam through.

The group argued that the DOE did not follow rule-making procedure by allowing a public comment period for Americans to weigh-in on the proposed rule.
Ortiz also lamented that forgiving student loans with the HEROs Act is outside the scope of what the bill was intended.
He attended oral arguments at the Supreme Court earlier this year.
