n the weeks before the November midterm elections, Joe Biden’s handlers instructed him to violate the Constitution by authorizing the expenditure of hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars with a student loan debt giveaway.
The Constitution makes it clear that only Congress has the authority to authorize the expenditures of tax dollars and even partisan outgoing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) admitted last year Biden did not have the power to do it.
“People think that the President of the United States has the power for debt forgiveness. He does not. He can postpone. He can delay. But he does not have that power. That has to be an act of Congress,” she said in July 2021 during a news conference.
“The President can’t do it. So that’s not even a discussion. Not everybody realizes that. But the President can only postpone, delay, but not forgive,” she noted further, as reported at the time by National Review.
To put a finer point on Pelosi’s claim, subsequent federal courts have agreed and have blocked Biden’s massive debt giveaway, and now the issue will be going before the U.S. Supreme Court. We expect the justices to rule that what Biden did was wrong.
But all that said, now he wants to use tens of billions more in tax dollars to pay off union cronies who vote Democrat, as noted by CNBC:
President Joe Biden on Thursday is announcing the infusion of nearly $36 billion to shore up a financially troubled union pension plan, preventing severe cuts to the retirement incomes of more than 350,000 Teamster workers and retirees across the United States.
