Democrats like to pretend they are the party of norms and democracy. Nothing could be further from the truth.

And now the Supreme Court is stunned after Biden’s blatant attack on the Judiciary.

Joe Biden and the Left have never been fond of being told “no.”

In fact, they are willing to defy a direct order from the Supreme Court to push their agenda.

President Biden announced on Thursday that he is eliminating student debt for 78,000 teachers, firefighters, and other public service personnel using an existing law.

The decision forgives about $6 billion under the Public Service Loan Forgiveness program, and it is the president’s second attempt to eliminate student debt after a major debt-forgiveness campaign hit legal and political barriers.

Mr. Biden will send out an email to those who benefit from the initiative.

“For too long, the program failed to live up to its commitments — and public service workers like you never got the relief you are entitled to under the law because of errors and administrative failures,” he wrote.

“I vowed to fix that, and I’m proud that my administration has delivered on that promise.”

Debt forgiveness is a top priority for Mr. Biden and his Democratic supporters.

He’s seeking to keep young voters on his side after they propelled his 2020 victory over former President Donald Trump.

Faced with a rematch, some young voters appear to be fleeing the aging president over his stance on Israel’s conflict in Gaza and other problems.

An attempt to modify the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form – which allows students to apply for college loans – had a poor rollout, with some students unable to complete it.

Mr. Biden also suffered a defeat when the Supreme Court rejected a significant plan to eliminate debt for tens of thousands of student borrowers and Pell Grant recipients.

Republicans had opposed the idea, claiming that it required blue-collar workers to fund college-educated individuals who voluntarily took on significant debt, and that it would encourage institutions to hike tuition.

Beyond Thursday’s announcement, Mr. Biden developed the Saving on a Valuable Education Plan as a workaround following the legal defeat.

The SAVE Plan offers forgiveness depending on the original principal balance of federal loans, the number of years debtors have been making payments, income, and family size.

Critics argue that the program violates the spirit of the Supreme Court’s decision against past forgiveness plans.

Is anyone surprised?
