Research Shows More People In Idaho Wanted This Than Don't
Since the announcement from the Biden-Harris administration, there has been a continued discussion of wheater this exceeds Biden's executive authority. By the looks of it, it doesn't matter if you live in a red or blue state. Biden's student debt relief plan has plenty of people wanting to take advantage of the relief.
The plan was to provide up to $20,000 in debt relief for borrowers earning less than $125,00 per year.
During the brief open window in which people could apply for student debt relief, more than half of the eligible borrowers applied or were automatically approved, according to Axios.com, before being blocked due to its legal challenges.
In late January, the Biden-Harris administration released new data saying, "in the less than four weeks that the application was available, 26 million people either applied for debt relief or had already provided sufficient information to the Department of Education (Department) to be deemed eligible for relief."
In Idaho, 249,800 residents are eligible for student debt relief across both districts. Northern Illinois saw some of the highest interest in the program, with over 70%. Oklahoma and Arizona had some of the lowest rates, just 50%. Out of the 249,800 residents eligible for federal student loan forgiveness, 126,500 applied or were deemed automatically eligible for relief.
"More than half of House Republicans and 40 GOP senators have filed briefs with Supreme Court, arguing that the Biden administration's student load forgiveness plan should be ruled unlawful."
