Republicans accuse Biden of having 'no shame' as he cancels student debt for ... trends now

Republicans on Wednesday slammed President Joe Biden's plan to cancel student debt for 813,000 people as a clear effort to buy his way to reelection next year.

Hundreds of thousands of former students will receive emails from the president in the coming days telling them that their debt has been forgiven.

'Couldn’t make it any clearer that Biden's ploy to force taxpayers who didn’t go to college to saddle hundreds of billions of someone else’s student debt is a ploy to gain political support for his reelection,' Republican Sen. Bill Cassidy wrote on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter.

Biden's move means he has forgiven a total of $127 billion for 3.5 million borrowers.

A White House spokesperson said Tuesday: 'The president is committed to fighting for hardworking American families, making sure we get them a little more breathing room, and allowing them to support themselves and their families.'

At the beginning of October, Biden canceled another $9 billion in student loan debt, giving relief to 125,000 borrowers.

The move came as borrowers prepare for payments to restart after a three-year pause that began during the COVID-19 pandemic.

'Americans who are saddled with unsustainable debt in exchange for a college degree has become the norm,' Biden said in remarks at the White House.

He argued canceling student loan debt is good for the economy as borrowers will spend their payment money on other items.

'This kind of relief is life-changing for individuals and their families. But it's good for our
