Missouri GOP Attorney General Andrew Bailey slammed President Joe Biden on Tuesday, arguing that his student loan forgiveness plan is a way to buy votes. 

"What President Biden is doing is nothing short of trying to buy votes and flaunting the authority of the United States Supreme Court in the process," he said on the "Just the News, No Noise" TV show. "When is the mainstream media going to call this what it is? A constitutional crisis."

On Monday, Biden outlined a plan to cancel student loan debt for over 30 million Americans.

The Education Department created the new plan as an alternative to the original one, which the Supreme Court struck down in June. The first plan was worth about $500 billion dollars and impacted 43 million Americans, according to the court's ruling.

"The only rational explanation here is he's trying to buy votes, because he knows he's losing to President Trump in the key demographic between 18 and 29 years olds in recent polling," Bailey said. 

He said that it is important that the rule of law not be undermined.
