The Biden administration unveiled an official version beta of its student loan repayment program on Friday night. It is the first step towards releasing thousands of Americans of debt incurred by students.
The bigger picture: Biden’s plan to forgive the student loans program has come up against a range of legal issues and also the opposition from Republicans as well as certain Democrats in states where there is a lot of fighting.
