Biden plans to cancel $10,000 in student loans per borrower, announcement won’t come this weekend: report

President Joe Biden had planned to announce forgiveness for student loans as soon as this weekend as he gives a speech at the University of Delaware’s commencement, but that timing has changed after Tuesday’s school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, according to a Washington Post report on Friday citing unnamed sources. White House officials currently plan to cancel $10,000 in student debt per borrower, limiting the forgiveness to Americans who earned less than $150,000 in the prior year, or less than $300,000 for married couples filing jointly, the report said. That would be in line with what was expected.
