More Than a Million Georgians Eligible for Student Loan Debt Relief Held Up by GOP

January 31, 2023

Georgians could be benefiting from relief right now were it not for lawsuits brought by Republican elected officials and special interests

According to new data, more than one million Georgians either applied for or were automatically deemed eligible for student debt loan relief under the Biden-Harris administration’s relief plan. Ellie Schwartz, spokesperson for the Democratic Party of Georgia, released the following statement on these historic numbers:

“For too long, student loan debt has been a barrier for millions of Americans hoping to earn their way into the middle class. President Biden and Vice President Harris’s student debt relief plan tackles that challenge head on, opening the door for millions to financial stability, home ownership, entrepreneurship, and more. The Biden-Harris administration’s relief program could – and should – be benefiting more than one million Georgians right now were it not for Republicans standing  in the way.”
