Biden angers AOC, Warren and Schumer over refusal to cancel student debt – By Josh Marcus (The Independent) / Feb 17 2021

The president argued during a town hall that he had other tools to provide those in student loan debt some relief

President Biden is facing backlash from his progressive allies like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Elizabeth Warren after he refused to commit to canceling more than $10,000 in student debt during a CNN town hall event on Tuesday night.

“The case against student loan forgiveness is looking shakier by the day. We’ve got the *Senate Majority Leader* on board to forgive $50k. Biden’s holding back, but many of the arguments against it just don’t hold water on close inspection,” Ms Ocasio-Cortez wrote on Twitter on Tuesday. “We can and should do it. Keep pushing!”
