Bailey Leads Seven-State Coalition against SAVE Plan

At the head of a seven-state coalition, Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey filed suit against the Biden-Harris Administration’s “SAVE” plan.

In a statement, Bailey said: “With the stroke of his pen, Joe Biden is attempting to saddle working Missourians with a half trillion dollars in college debt. The United States Constitution makes clear that the president lacks the authority to unilaterally ‘cancel’ student loan debt for millions of Americans without express permission from Congress.”

Bailey continued, saying that “the President does not get to thwart the Constitution when it suits his political agenda” and that he filed the suit to “halt [Biden’s] brazen attempt to curry favor with some citizens by forcing others to shoulder their debts.”

The Attorneys General of Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, North Dakota, Ohio, and Oklahoma joined Bailey in filing suit.

The last time Bailey’s office filed suit against a student loan forgiveness plan proposed by President Biden’s administration, the Supreme Court ruled in the former’s favor 6-3.
