Florida Gov. DeSantis calls Biden’s student loan handout unconstitutional, says colleges should pay for it

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on Thursday criticized President Biden’s student loan handout, saying universities should be held accountable instead of the American taxpayer.

“It’s very unfair to have a truck driver have to pay back a loan from somebody who got a Ph.D. in gender studies. That’s not fair, that’s not right,” the Republican governor told a press conference, eliciting applause.

He then argued that universities had benefited the most from the “exorbitant” debt that’s been taken out over the last generation. Much of the rising costs, he said, have gone towards expanding administrative offices without a discernible rise in the quality of education itself.
