Texas Atty. Gen. Ken Paxton told Newsmax that the state of Texas is hoping to bring a class-action lawsuit against the Biden administration for helping college kids from all families to help pay down their student loans.

Paxton was indicted seven years ago for securities fraud but so far has evaded any form of a trial.

The Newsmax host claims "parents" are outraged over this deal. Would most of those parents work for Newsmax and Fox News?

"This is really unfortunate because it's really unfair to people that have paid their loans, " Paxton said.

"It's unfortunate to families that have helped their kids pay for school,"

Paxton should be celebrating the news for all Texas families that will benefit from Biden's EO.

"I don't think this is constitutional. We have to find a way in the state of Texas to find standing, or we need individuals to sue," he said.

The Newsmax host then had an idea.

"Well, doesn't every American who's paid off their student loans automatically have standing, legally speaking?"

"What would be the standing of Texas, we're looking at this."

"But it may be individuals that have to sue. Or maybe an organization represents individuals and we can intervene," he said. "It's pretty unfair to people that have paid off their student loans who have paid for their college education."

What creeps. When Trump passed his massive tax cuts for the rich, could those same businesses sue Trump because the year before they paid more and to them it wasn't fair?

Remember, Paxton used discredited claims of election fraud to include other swing states and tried to get the Supreme Court to overthrow the 2020 election and keep Trump in power.

To no one's surprise, the Christian kangaroo Supreme Court refused to hear their case because it was so ridiculous.

The U.S. Supreme Court on Friday tossed out the Texas lawsuit that had become a vehicle for Republicans across the country to contest President-elect Joe Biden’s victory.

In a few brief sentences, the high court said it would not consider the case for procedural reasons, because Texas lacked standing to bring it.

Yet these moron want to hurt the working class based on their usual wingnut grievance.

I'm sure Paxton via Steve Bannon will dig up some evangelical MAGA cretins to sue.
