President Biden unveiled his plan to cancel billions of dollars in student loan debt, saying it will benefit 43 million Americans earning less than $125,000 a year. Pell Grant recipients will receive up to $20,000 in relief, while other borrowers can get up to $10,000 in debt cancellation. The pause on federal loan payments will also be extended until the end of the year. Roy Paul, executive director of Cents Ability, joins CBS News to discuss the economic impact of this plan.
