Elizabeth Warren slams ‘shameless attempt’ to block Biden’s student-loan forgiveness

en. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts isn’t happy that Republicans are trying to stop student-loan forgiveness from reaching millions of Americans. After President Joe Biden announced late last month up to $20,000 in student-debt cancellation for federal borrowers, Republican Sen. Rick Scott of Florida introduced legislation that would require Congress to approve any blanket debt relief…. “This is a shameful attempt by Republicans to keep working Americans buried under mountains of student debt,” Warren said on the Senate floor. “Sen. Scott’s bill is just one of Republicans’ desperate efforts to block cancellation for millions of Americans,” she added.
