Student Defense Statement on Federal Appeals Court Temporarily Blocking Biden’s Widespread Student Debt Cancellation

Today, the U.S. 8th Circuit Court of Appeals temporarily blocked President Biden’s widespread debt cancellation plan. In response, Student Defense President Aaron Ament issued the following statement:

“President Biden’s student debt plan provides life-changing relief for millions of Americans. The Administration should respond to this attack by defending its plan and going on offense, immediately reinstating the Gainful Employment Rule and ramping up their other efforts to protect students and address the student loan debt crisis.”
