Breitbart editor slams White House student loan plan as an attempt to buy votes

 April 6, 2024

President Joe Biden was left scrambling last when the Supreme Court ruled that his plan to offload more than $400 billion worth of student loan debt onto taxpayers was unconstitutional.

Yet that hasn't stopped the White House from finding other ways to pursue and debt, something one observer says is a blatant attempt to buy votes. 

Breitbart editor says move is aimed at "over-educated liberals"

Alex Marlow is a New York Times best-selling author as well as the editor-in-chief at Breitbart, and he made the allegation during an interview on Friday with Fox Business host Larry Kudlow.

"This is about buying votes. He’s trying to buy the votes of over-educated liberals who took on too many student loans and are making a lot of money," Breitbart quoted Marlow as telling Kudlow.

"A lot of this, Larry by the way, there’s a racial element to this too because black Americans have a higher ratio of debt to income from student loans and they will get a comparatively less of a handout from Biden. I think the left should get on this," the website's editor-in-chief declared.

Marlow: Plan will exacerbate inflation

Marlow went on to assert that the White House's student loan plan will add to America's economic woes, saying, "It's a great day if you love inflation."

"It is a great day if you are selling cars or you are a landlord," he continued before adding, "All these people get more money because of Biden’s handouts and of course all of it is inflationary."

Marlow isn't alone in opposing the administration's student approach, which is officially known as the Saving on a Valuable Education (SAVE) plan.

Axios reported that a coalition of Republican state attorneys general have filed a challenge to the SAVE plan in federal court.

Kansas attorney general claims plan is "unlawful"

Led by Kansas Attorney General Kris Kobach, the lawsuit is also backed by officials from Alabama, Alaska, Idaho, Iowa, Louisiana, Montana, Nebraska, South Carolina, Texas and Utah.

The plaintiffs point out in their suit how the "[l]ast time Defendants tried this the Supreme Court said that this action was illegal."

"Nothing since then has changed, other than introducing more legal errors into this Rule's underlying analysis," it goes on to maintain.

Meanwhile, Kobach touted the lawsuit in a post on Facebook, writing, "Aside from the fact that Biden's loan forgiveness plan is unlawful for multiple reasons, it's also wrong."

" A free people [claim] their rights, as derived from the laws of nature."
