BOULDER, Colo. – University of Colorado Boulder students weighed in on the Biden administration’s handling of student loan debt.
“Biden so far has done an okay job, but I’d like to see if he actually follows through with his promise from the 2020 election of helping students forgive their loan debt,” one student told Fox News.

During the presidential election, President Biden promised “to make sure that everybody in this generation gets $10,000 knocked off of their student debt.”
In response to a question about Biden’s campaign promise, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said: “If Congress sends him a bill, he’s happy to sign it. They haven’t sent him a bill on that yet.”
Biden has paused student loan payments, “providing critical relief to borrowers who continue to face financial hardships as a result of the pandemic,” according to the U.S. Department of Education, which said the pause on student loan payments will help 41 million borrowers save $5 billion per month. Millions will resume payments starting May 1.
