MADISON — President Joe Biden’s “One-Time Student Loan Debt Relief Plan” comes with a big bill for U.S. taxpayers. Now Wisconsin taxpayers are taking the president to court.
On Tuesday, the Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty (WILL) filed a federal lawsuit on behalf of the Brown County Taxpayers Association. The complaint alleges the Biden administration’s student loan forgiveness program violates the constitutional separation of powers because it was unilaterally crafted by the executive branch. It was written without authority — as well as the constitutional guarantee of equal protection under the law, underscored by the official documents that outline the program’s preference toward specific races, the lawsuit states.
WILL is asking the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Wisconsin Green Bay Division to issue a temporary restraining order to prevent Biden and federal officials from canceling any debt before a decision is reached in the lawsuit.
