PRESS RELEASE: DFI Statement on SCOTUS Victory in ‘Biden v. Nebraska’

WASHINGTON—The Defense of Freedom Institute for Policy Studies (DFI) released the following statement from President and Co-Founder Bob Eitel after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Biden v. Nebraska that the President’s student loan bailout scheme is unconstitutional:

“Today’s ruling from the Supreme Court is a huge victory for American taxpayers, the Constitution, and the rule of law. With its decision in Biden v. Nebraska, the Court has affirmed what DFI and others have said since President Biden announced his illegal student loan bailout—only Congress has the power to legislate and to appropriate billions of taxpayer dollars. We are pleased to see the Supreme Court affirm this foundational constitutional principle. DFI is proud to have fought for the Constitution and the rule of law in this case.”

DFI was joined by five former U.S. Secretaries of Education—William Bennett, Lamar Alexander, Rod Paige, Margaret Spellings, and Betsy DeVos—in an amicus brief in Biden v. Nebraska and Department of Education v. Brown explaining why President Biden’s student debt cancellation policy is unlawful.
