Fischer, Ricketts vote to advance repeal of Biden’s student debt relief

North Platte Post

Washington – On Wednesday, the U.S. Senate voted on a motion to end President Biden’s student loan relief plan. On a 51-46 vote, the Senate advanced the legislation that would repeal the debt cancellation program and nullify the pause on monthly payments and interest.

U.S. Senators Deb Fisher and Pete Ricketts of Nebraska along with erry Moran and Roger Marshall of Kansas voted to overturn the bailout. This measure protects those who did not attend college or already paid off their student loan from being responsible for this debt.

Senator Marshall released the following statement after voting down the bailout:

“In the America I grew up in, if you took out a loan, you paid it back. It’s that simple. I am proud to support today’s CRA that overturns Joe Biden’s student loan scheme and saves our country over $300 BILLION. Transferring over undue debt to the American taxpayers is not only fiscally irresponsible, it’s flat-out wrong. This isn’t student loan ‘forgiveness,’ it’s the federal government fleecing hardworking families.”
