Romney Joins Amicus Brief to Supreme Court Pushing Back on Biden’s Student Loan Forgiveness 

WASHINGTON—U.S. Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) joined Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), and 40 of his Republican colleagues in filing an amicus brief to the Supreme Court of the United States on Friday, supporting respondents in the dual Supreme Court cases challenging Biden’s student-loan debt relief program, Biden v. Nebraska and Department of Education v. Brown.

The senators argue that Biden’s decision to forgive federal student loan debt in these circumstances constitutes unprecedented executive overreach and defies the separation of powers between Congress and the President.
