Biden’s Education Secretary Under Fire Over Potential For Fraud

House Republicans are questioning Education Secretary Miguel Cardona over the potential for waste and fraud in aspects of the Education Department’s student loan repayment plan.
House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. James Comer (R-KY) and House Education and Workforce Committee Chairwoman Virginia Foxx (R-NC) sent a letter to Cardona on Friday asking how the department planned to deter potential fraud since it was pursuing an income-based repayment plan without verification measures in place for income.
“In light of the Oversight Committee’s observations about self-certification in multiple COVID-19 pandemic relief programs, we are concerned about the extent to which the Department is leaving taxpayers vulnerable to waste, fraud, and abuse,” they wrote in a letter first obtained by the Washington Examiner.
