Barrasso Statement on Supreme Court Ruling Against Biden Student Loan Scheme

CASPER, WY – U.S. Senator John Barrasso (R-Wyo.), chairman of the Senate Republican Conference, today issued the following statement after the United State Supreme Court ruled the Biden administration lacked authority to use executive action to cancel student loan debt. 

“Today’s decision is a victory for every American who played by the rules and worked hard to pay off their own debt. Senate Republicans warned that President Biden’s student loan scheme was unconstitutional. Today’s decision confirms that. We will block any attempt by President Biden and Congressional Democrats that continues this executive overreach and reckless spending. The 87% of Americans with no student loan debt should never be forced to pay off the debt of the 13% who do.”



  • Senator Barrasso joined 43 Republican Senators on an amicus brief calling on the United States Supreme Court to rule against the Biden administration’s student loan cancellation program.
  • Senator Barrasso is an original cosponsor of a Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolution overturning the student loan cancellation program. The Senate passed the resolution on June 1, 2023, by a vote of 52-46.
