President Joe Biden took to Twitter to explain on Tuesday that Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona is extending the pause on federal student loan payments while the White House battles in court to save his plans to cancel portions of the debt.

"The Administration is extending the pause on federal student loan repayments to allow for the Supreme Court to rule in the case on the student debt relief program," the White House tweeted.

"The pause will end no later than June 30, 2023," the administration added. Payments will resume 60 days after the pause ends.

In late October, it was reported that six Republican-led states asked a federal appeals court to reconsider their effort to block the Biden administration’s program to forgive hundreds of millions of dollars in student loan debt.

Republicans are not serious politicians out there fighting for their constituents. That's just not a thing anymore. Well, I don't know when it was for the GOP.
