(MISSOURINET) – A group of elected officials and supporters of President Biden are pushing back against Republican efforts to block student loan forgiveness. They include Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas. He says that student loan debt is especially heavy in Kansas City:

Lucas says he’s “outraged” that Missouri is among several states suing to block Biden’s efforts to forgive student loan debt. At the time the lawsuit was filed, then-Attorney General Eric Schmitt said doing so would “unfairly burden working class families and those who chose not to take out loans or have already paid them off.”
