The Supreme Court at the end of June struck down President Biden's controversial student loan forgiveness program. The program aimed to forgive up to $10,000 in federal student loans for borrowers earning less than $125,000 a year, and up to $20,000 for Pell Grant recipients. The decision will soon end a yearslong repayment pause first enacted under the Trump administration, and represents a huge blow to Biden's platform for reelection.
