After a "long weekend" in Boise over the Fourth of July, one thing was obvious: a LOT of people worked.

What does the Governor of Idaho do over the Fourth of July? Well....



From the looks of it, Brad Little had quite the playdate with his favorite toys--and it didn't take long for the internet to roast his couch, either. 

Going into the weekend, however, many Idahoans were holding their breath, awaiting a Supreme Court decision on student loan forgiveness. Under the proposed plan, which several states were suing President Biden over, borrowers with federal student loans would have been given $10,000 in forgiveness. 

Early on, Brad Little was one of many governors to protest the idea--which didn't sit well with Idaho borrowers. Once SCOTUS announced the forgiveness wouldn't be happening--students around the nation and here in Idaho were deflated. 

  You can see Governor Brad Little's statement on the Supreme Court ruling, below:   


According to an article in the Idaho Capital Sun from earlier this year--the White House released state-by-state statistics on student loan forgiveness under President Biden's plan. At the time, the White House estimated that 79,000 Idahoans were right on track to have at least some of their student debt forgiven (per Biden's proposed $10,000).  The statistics also estimated close to 50,000 more would have been automatically eligible.

Many believed that the debt forgiveness would have helped the economy by taking some financial burden off of the shoulders of an educated, working class that is grappling with the difficult economy following COVID-19.  Others argued that there was simply no difference between forgiving the millions in PPP loans--many taken by the wealthy along with Idaho politicians.

While he had no comment on PPP forgiveness--it appears Brad Little just wanted to be tough on students.
