Here’s What Internet Users Have to Say About Student Loans Resuming

Unlike darling Joe Byron, whose entire internet would have given a big kiss just a few weeks ago, de facto US President Joe Biden doesn’t see much love on Twitter. Clearly, he wouldn’t do any magic executive order to clear student loan debt as many had hoped.

As Press Secretary Jen Psaki announced last week, student loan repayments will already resume on February 1 as scheduled, and the White House is expected to release more details in the coming weeks.

“We are still evaluating the impact [COVID-19] Psaki said. But a smooth transition to reimbursement is a top priority for the management. The Ministry of Education is already communicating with borrowers to help them prepare for repayment on February 1, and has also secured contract extensions with loan service providers.”

Sure, Biden may have initially campaigned in support of him to clear $10,000 of student debt annually for national or community service, but he hopes Congress will introduce legislation to get that done. For Americans, that means they will need to start paying off student debt to the government in just a few weeks, as the White House intends to “deal directly with federal student loan borrowers to ensure they have the resources they need and are on the appropriate repayment plan.”

That’s not to say borrowers are happy with Biden’s lack of action, though many on the internet have begun to swipe toward “#studentloanforgiveness” on Twitter in response.

Some called it an L for the Biden administration, others called it an L for all of us, but in general people are afraid of having to pay back what they promised they shouldn’t. Check out some of the responses below.
