Student loan crisis to be dealt with President Biden

student loan

President Joe Biden plans to handle student loan obligations particularly because of the monetary strain they are confronting as a result of the Covid pandemic. On President Biden’s first day at White House he had marked an authoritative request to broaden the suspension on educational loans as a feature of his Covid help plan.

On Thursday, Ron Klain, White House chief voiced out that President Joe Biden asked his schooling secretary to investigate the president’s power to scrap out educational loan obligation despite the fact that President Biden had confidence in his beginning of the administration that he has no position to do as such by chief request. In any case, his new advance can be viewed as a reasonable sign that President Joe Biden is following up on the issue.

Nonconformists demand that it would be unscrupulous benefit to the higher pay workers who have effectively accomplished their advanced degree as those people are mindful to repay their credits, regardless of the condition.

Nonetheless, President Joe Biden has been suspicious to redirect the issue of dropping understudy loan obligations to Congress. President Joe Biden said during his crusading days that his administration will help the individuals who have “crippling” understudy loans. In February at CNN city center, President Joe Biden had said “I Understand the effect of obligation.”

Besides, he added that understudy loans ought to have a 0% premium edge. He showed tolerance towards public area laborers by growing the understudy loan pardoning. He likewise got rid of obligations for the understudies who got fooled into the “revenue-driven” schools.

Regardless, President Joe Biden is doubtful on dropping credit obligations for understudies who went to top-level or world-class schools like Yale, Penn, and Harvard.

Throughout the decade, the sticker price on advanced education has quickly expanded making it so hard for understudies to achieve their advanced educations without an understudy loan. The high prerequisites from selection representatives make advanced education important to find a decent line of work, however, because of the expenses of advanced education, it makes it hard for understudies to accomplish them.

For as long as 20 years educational expenses in private and public universities have multiplied. America has gathered $1.7 trillion understudy loan obligations as more understudies select to accomplish more degrees to acquire space and fitness for great paying positions on the planet.

Democrats demand President Biden excuse the individuals who have $50,000 understudy loan per borrower. At CNN municipal center, President Biden had asked “Is that will be excused, as opposed to utilizing that cash to give cash to early training for little youngsters who come from hindered conditions?”

Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Senate greater part pioneer Chuck Summer accept that President Biden has the privileges to counterbalance the $50,000 credits and mentioned him to do that immediately. Sen Elizabeth and Chuck summer said in a proclamation the previous fall that: “Studies show that understudy obligation wiping out can significantly expand Black and Latinx family riches and help close the racial abundance hole, give quick alleviation to millions who are battling during this pandemic and downturn, and give a lift to our striving economy through a buyer-driven monetary boost that can bring about more prominent home-purchasing rates and lodging security, higher school finish rates, and more noteworthy private venture arrangement,”.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren likewise said that understudy loan debt holders were in an emergency even before the Covid pandemic had risen and placed America’s economy into mayhem.

Anyway, Ocasio-Cortez can’t help contradicting this arrangement as he says that easy-going understudy loan indebted individuals may cost youth schooling. On Twitter, she said that “Many will not completely feel $10k in pardoning until after a Biden administration is finished when they have gone through 10 years taking care of the other $20k+”. She felt free to say “Dems ought to advocate a strategy that individuals can feel ASAP. We need to pull out all the stops.”

100 days in White House; 3 major moves in Biden’s first 100 days

100 days

100 days of Joe Biden’s presidency has already passed by. The first 100 days of his presidency and Vice President Kamala Harris’s take over, here are a few things that we recap:

100 days of handling the coronavirus:

On Tuesday, 2nd of March, President Biden moved up the timeline for when the US will have sufficient COVID-19 vaccine supply for every single adult in America. He strongly said that this goal will be successfully achieved by end of May 2021.

“This country will have enough vaccine supply for every adult in America by the end of May,” Biden said Tuesday from the White House. “The prior administration had contracted for not nearly enough vaccines for adults in America. We rectified that.”

J&J expects to have about 20 million doses available by the end of March, with a total of 100 million doses by the end of June.

“These efforts will contribute to J&J’s ability to accelerate delivery of their vaccine doses from 100 million doses by the end of June to at or near 100 million doses by the end of May,” the HHS said of the partnership between the two companies in a statement. “In the long term, these actions will ultimately double J&J’s U.S. capacity to produce drug substance and increase the U.S. capacity for fill-finish.”

President Biden also said that he is using his federal authority to direct every state to ensure teachers, school staff, and other educators in K-8 schools receive at least one dose of any available coronavirus vaccine by the end of March.

“Let’s treat in-person learning like the essential service that it is,” Biden said Tuesday. “And that means getting … educators, school staff, childcare workers, and get them vaccinated immediately. They’re essential workers.”

Passed $1.9 trillion COVID relief bill in the first 100 days

Biden’s administration is going ahead with the $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill which the House passed over recently. Moreover, they also spoke about increasing the federal minimum wage to $15.

“The Senate will take up the American Rescue Plan this week,” Schumer said. “I expect a hardy debate and some late nights, but the American people sent us here with a job to do … to end through action the greatest health crisis our country has faced in a century.”

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) slammed the bill, calling it a “bonanza of partisan spending they’re calling a pandemic rescue package” and calling an extension of federal unemployment benefits included in the bill “a premium to stay home that would extend well into a recovery where job growth and rehiring would be pivotal.”

The bill provides $1,400 payments to individuals plus hundreds of billions of dollars for schools and colleges, COVID-19 vaccines and testing, mass transit systems, renters and small businesses, as well as money for child care, and an expansion to tax breaks for families with children.

Biden to solve Mexican immigration issues in first 100 days

Last week, President Joe Biden met with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in a virtual format.

During Biden’s brief press conference where he was sitting between the United States flag and a Mexican flag, and spoke of the importance of the relationship between the two nations, telling López Obrador is “paramount to all of the elements of my administration’s priorities.”

“The United States and Mexico are stronger when we stand together,” Biden said Monday. “There’s a long and complicated history between our nations. They haven’t always been perfect neighbors with one another. But we have seen over and over again the power and the purpose when we cooperate.”

“Delighted to be with you,” the president added, noting that he was “honored” to have previously met López Obrador in person during Biden’s time serving as vice president.

President Joe Biden did not answer shouted questions as the press was ushered out of the room, saying only the two leaders are “going to talk about” the possibility of the United States sending coronavirus vaccines to Mexico. Mexico’s president has said he intends during the meeting to propose to Biden a new Bracero-style immigrant labor program that could bring 600,000 to 800,000 Mexican and Central American immigrants a year to work legally in the United States.

The Trump era was defined by the threat of tariffs, crackdowns on migration, and his desire to construct a wall on the United States southern border, yet Trump appeared to enjoy an amicable relationship with his Mexican counterpart.

Mexico paid nothing for Trump’s cherished border wall, despite the U.S. leader’s repeated claims that it would. But López Obrador’s government did send troops to Mexico’s southern border with Guatemala to deal with an unprecedented wave of asylum-seekers bound for the U.S. Mexico hosted about 70,000 people seeking U.S. asylum while they waited for dates in immigration courts, a policy known as Remain in Mexico and officially as Migrant Protection Protocols.

President Biden’s administration immediately began to unwind Remain in Mexico, suspending it for new arrivals on the president’s first day in the office and soon after announcing that an estimated 26,000 people with still-active cases could be released in the United States while their cases played out.

But Biden, through the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, has kept extraordinary pandemic-related powers in place to immediately expel anyone arriving at the U.S. border from Mexico without an opportunity to seek asylum.

The Biden administration has also preserved a policy, imposed at the start of the COVID-19 outbreak, of quickly expelling people captured along the border and has tried to dissuade people from attempting the journey.

“This is not the time to come to the United States,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki said at a February briefing. “We need the time to put in place an immigration process so people can be treated humanely.”


Emotional White House Ceremony marking 500,000 COVID deaths

Emotional White House Ceremony marking 500,000 COVID deaths 1

Emotional President Job Biden and Vice President Harris had asked America to “resist becoming numb to the sorrow” on Monday. He said that the novel coronavirus had inflicted by acknowledging the deeply shocking milestone of more than 500,000 Americans dead from the pandemic in a solemn ceremony at the White House.

The country passed the grim toll at 5 pm and bells began tolling at the National Cathedral, resounding across a capital with flags lowered to half-staff. About an hour later, President Biden and Harris, along with first lady Jill Biden and second gentleman Doug Emhoff, emerged from the White House at sundown.

President Biden appeared in the Cross Hall of the White House and pulled a card from his jacket pocket that he said was updated each day with the number of those infected with the coronavirus and those who died of Covid-19. The foot of the South Portico was covered in 500 candles honoring the dead. They listened to a Marine Corps band play “Amazing Grace” as they held a moment of silence.

“We have to resist viewing each life as a statistic or a blur,” he said Monday, in the second ceremony he has held to honor people killed in the ongoing pandemic. President Joe Biden sought not only to honor the dead but also to comfort those who have lost loved ones, many of whom “took their final breath alone.”

“To heal, we must remember. It’s hard, sometimes, to remember,” Biden said on the eve of his inauguration in a similar ceremony at the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. At that time, the U.S. had just marked 400,000 COVID-19 deaths. Remembering, he said, is “how we heal. It’s important to do that as a nation.”

“I know all too well,” he said. “I know what it’s like to not be there when it happens. I know what it’s like when you are there holding their hands; there’s a look in their eye and they slip away. That black hole in your chest — you feel like you’re being sucked into it. The survivor’s remorse, the anger, the questions of faith in your soul.”

The President addressed the survivors directly, alluding several times to the loss of his first wife, an infant daughter, and, later, his eldest son

“I promise you,” Biden said Monday night, as he often does when delivering eulogies and marking deaths, “the day will come when the memory of the loved one you lost will bring a smile to your lips before a tear to your eye. It will come, I promise you.”

He also said that it was a strikingly emotional moment, and a testament to a nation’s failure to act in the face of a calamity that would take the lives of more Americans in a year’s time than those who died in World War I, World War II and the Vietnam War combined. “More lives lost to this virus,” he said, “than any other nation on Earth.”

The White House ceremony was particularly notable because President Donald J. Trump refused to mark the losses or hold such remembrances, knowing that any focus on the individual lives lost would quickly raise the question of how the government failed to respond more quickly and aggressively.
