Contributing sentiments towards policy:

64% : During February arguments in the loans case, Biden's administration said the plan was authorized under a 2003 federal law called the Higher Education Relief Opportunities for Students Act, or HEROES Act, which empowers the U.S. education secretary to "waive or modify" student financial assistance during war or national emergencies."Both Biden and his Republican predecessor Donald Trump relied upon the HEROES Act beginning in 2020 to repeatedly pause student loan payments and halt interest from accruing to alleviate financial strain on student loan borrowers during the COVID-19 pandemic.
48% : The ruling came a day after the Supreme Court effectively prohibited affirmative action policies long used by U.S. colleges and universities to raise the number of Black, Hispanic and other underrepresented minority students.
30% : Conservative-dominated court strikes down the presiden't debt forgiveness programme that had been intended to benefit up to 43m AmericansJoe Biden suffered a painful defeat on Friday after the US Supreme Court blocked his plan to cancel $430 billion in student loan debt, a move that had been intended to benefit up to 43 million Americans and fulfill a campaign promise.
