News Roundup: Miami GOP embraces Jan. 6 seditionists; Biden wipes $5.8 billion of student debt

As the Biden administration ponders how aggressively it should confront the student loan crisis (which more accurately might be called the grifting college crisis), at least some students will be seeing full relief. The administration announced that the federal government will erase all of the nearly $6 billion in student debt incurred by those defrauded by the now-defunct Corinthian Colleges. Republican states are already rushing to take new action in the wake of the latest mass murder of American children in their school classrooms, but it’s not to restrict guns: It’s to put more of them in schools. In Missouri, a far-right group is targeting schools of its own, supposedly for unauthorized “wokeness.”

And in Miami, we learn that the Miami-Dade Republican Party has multiple Republicans affiliated with the far-right pro-violence group “Proud Boys” on their party’s executive committee. That includes two members currently under indictment for participating in the violent takeover of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, an attack intended to force Congress to nullify the U.S. presidential election and (somehow) declare Donald Trump the winner.

You can’t get much more pro-sedition as a party than putting two indicted pro-violence seditionists on your executive committee, but it’s not like the Republican Party has being trying to hide their support for toppling American democracy. It’s pretty much spelled out at this point already.

Here’s some of what you may have missed:
