Biden Favors Lazy Students Over Soldiers - Should We Even Be Surprised? 

At the same time the U.S. Army is trying to cut education benefits to the men and women who are willing to risk their lives to defend the U.S., the federal government is also looking for ways to forgive education loans of students who whine about paying back money they borrowed.

Amid its struggles to meet its recruitment goals, the U.S. Army thinks cutting benefits will somehow help that effort.

The Credentialing Assistance program allots soldiers up to $4,000 per year to earn civilian qualifications, and the Tuition Assistance program helps soldiers further their education. Military.com reported that both problems could be reduced.

However, the programs also help the Army recruit soldiers.

It's a benefit that more than 100,000 soldiers utilize each year.

The Army spent $278 million on education benefits in fiscal year 2023, according to Military.com.

"The Army recognizes the value of both to support our soldiers’ professional development and readiness levels," Army spokesperson Bryce Dubee said in a statement to The Daily Caller.

"However, in order to ensure their long-term sustainability, the Army is conducting a thorough review of both programs."

Soldiers who use the Tuition Assistance program have completed at least one year of active duty service.

Through the program, they can receive up to $250 per semester hour up to $4,500 annually for both undergraduate and graduate courses. In exchange, they commit to two additional years of service after completing the covered schooling concurrent to their service obligation.

The Credentialing Assistance program helps soldiers earn licenses and qualifications in things like project management, personal training and piloting that will help them widen their skill set.

While this has been happening, the Biden Administration has been looking for ways to forgive student loan debt, even though the Supreme Court has told them their plans aren’t Constitutional.

Biden recently unveiled a new plan to forgive student loan debt for more than 30 million Americans after the Supreme Court struck down a previous program last year. The new plan will turn out to be no more Constitutional than the previous one.

Make no mistake, this isn’t because Biden feels sorry for these students who willingly entered into a loan agreement with the government.

"What he’s really doing is shredding the Constitution," Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett told "Fox and Friends" anchor Lawrence Jones.

"He changed his method of loan forgiveness in the latest plan, but the same legal principles that make it unconstitutional still apply.

"He’s not canceling anything, Lawrence. He’s transferring billions of debt from borrowers to taxpayers. And under the Constitution, only Congress has the power to do that, as the Supreme Court explained in their decision.

"So, you know, this is a stunning act of contempt. Biden says he doesn’t care about the separations of powers, the law, or the Constitution."

Biden is simply trying to buy the votes of people who don’t have enough life experience to realize they are only harming themselves in the long run.

So, those people who are willing to risk their lives and earn their educational benefits are being told they don’t deserve those benefits as much as people who simply don’t want to pay back their education loans.

If this all doesn’t make sense to you, all you need to know is that it’s government.

That pretty much says it all.
