The White House has extended the student loan repayment deadline through May 1, 2022 — just weeks before the moratorium was set to expire.

The White House extended the deadline amid pressure from progressive Democrats, concerned about a bloodbath during the midterm elections.

Pres. Joe Biden paused the repayment moratorium due to the mild Omicron variant.

In a statement on Tuesday, Biden said “millions of student loan borrowers are still coping with the impacts of the pandemic and need some more time before resuming payments.”

The president previously refused to extend the repayment moratorium past February 1, saying his decision was “final.”

Voters are pressuring Biden to cancel all federal student loan debt, as he promised to do prior to the 2020 election.

The reaction on Twitter was a mix of relief and frustration at the delay in canceling student loan debt.
