The Supreme Court asks Americans to pay their bills

President Biden tried to be generous in canceling or lowering $400 billion in student loans. The Supreme Court stopped that attempt to take money from people that pay their bills and give it to those who do not. No one had a gun at their head when taking loans. The only justification for forgiving student loans could be that the government made them easy to get. Politicians wanted to make education accessible for those who could not afford it otherwise. The opposite happened; with easy loans, colleges raised their tuition. Paying with borrowed funds was easier than with hard-earned money. With the Fourth of July approaching, the Supreme Court reminded us that self-sustained people founded the Republic to keep things that way. Or, as no one repeats anymore: “Ask not what your country can do for you — ask what you can do for your country.”
