McGovern Statement on Supreme Court Student Loan Decision

WASHINGTONToday, Congressman James P. McGovern (D-MA), ranking member of the House Rules Committee, released the following statement after the Supreme Court denied student loan relief for millions of borrowers:

“It’s no surprise that the same corrupt majority on the Supreme Court that overturned abortion rights, stripped environmental regulations, weakened labor protections, and loosened gun laws has now decided that going to college should remain a debt sentence for millions of borrowers.

“This story has played out for far too long. A Supreme Court bought and paid for by wealthy special interests that provides for the rich while leaving working families behind. The highest court in the land ought to deliver more transparency, accountability, and justice for all—not luxury vacations for justices while everyday people get screwed.

“Enough is enough. I’m determined—now more than ever—to fight for student loan forgiveness and to restore ethics and integrity to this broken Supreme Court.”
