Biden Says COVID Pandemic Is Over and Might Have Just Exposed His Own Act as Illegal; Biden Declares 'the Pandemic Is Over' While Discussing the Nation's Ongoing COVID Struggles, and other C-Virus related stories

Biden Says COVID Pandemic Is Over and Might Have Just Exposed His Own Act as Illegal:
President Joe Biden declared that the pandemic is over during an interview with “60 Minutes” on Sunday evening, which could render his decision to forgive trillions of dollars of student loan debt unconstitutional as he used the COVID-19 emergency to legally justify the move.
The Biden administration used the COVID-19 emergency as a pretext for its move to forgive federal student loan debts of up to $20,000 without congressional approval, according to a Justice Department document. The powers Biden used to forgive student loans are only constitutional during an active emergency; however, the emergency his administration cited has now been declared over only a month after it was used to justify the decision.
“The pandemic is over,” Biden said. “We’re still doing a lot of work on it … but the pandemic is over.”
The Biden administration in August cited the 2003 HEROES Act as legal justification for the student debt cancellation, according to the department’s memo. Government lawyers argued that the HEROES Act, which gave the executive branch the authority “to help borrowers serving in the military in the wake of the Sept. 11 attacks,” could apply to any national emergency, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, and could therefore be used to forgive federal student loans. --->READ MORE HERE

Joe Biden Declares 'the Pandemic Is Over' While Discussing the Nation's Ongoing COVID Struggles:
President Joe Biden declared the end of the pandemic, after nearly three years since the CDC confirmed the first coronavirus case in the United States.
"The pandemic is over," Biden said in an interview with CBS News' Scott Pelley that aired on 60 Minutes Sunday.
"We still have a problem with COVID," the president continued. "We're still doing a lot of work on it. But the pandemic is over."
Biden, 79, was speaking with Pelley following a visit together to the first Detroit Auto Show in three years, which the president attended to celebrate his help towards funding of charging stations for electric vehicles.
"If you notice, no one's wearing masks. Everybody seems to be in pretty good shape. And so I think it's changing," said Biden. "And I think this is a perfect example of it."
Coronavirus has lead to the death of more than 1 million people in the U.S., not to mention the social and economic impacts it has had across the population. --->READ MORE HERE
