Pelosi states that Biden’s student debt cancellation is nothing more than phrase-mongering
The powers of the President of the United States do not extend to issues such as cancellation of student debt, this was made clear by Nancy Pelosi during a press briefing.
Every promise made by Biden during the election campaign is unfulfilled and student debt cannot simply evaporate. Pelosi said the belief that President Joe Biden can forgive student debt on his own are misinformed.
“The president can’t do it,” Pelosi said, at a press briefing. “That’s not even a discussion.”
The power to resolve this issue lies with Congress, where Joe Biden has no influence, since the majority remains with the Republican Party.
Right now, the only thing Biden has done is ask the U.S. Department of Justice and the U.S. Department of Education information on how to influence student debt.
Neither the first nor the second department has yet published its verdict.
The White House will not comment on Pelosi's words.
