Federal courts have temporarily blocked key parts of President Joe Biden's student loan debt relief and repayment plan. The rulings come as a blow to the Saving on a Valuable Education (Save) program, which aimed to extend payment periods and forgive the debts of almost all who borrowed $12,000 or less. The White House has vowed to continue defending its forgiveness and repayment proposals, despite the setbacks. The rulings are seen as a victory for Republican politicians who filed lawsuits against the program, arguing that the president overstepped his legal authority. The administration, however, remains committed to providing relief to students and borrowers.
