Squad-member Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley called on the federal government to “cancel” rent, home mortgages, and student debt on social media Tuesday as the country re-opens amid the Coronavirus pandemic.
“Cancel rent. Cancel mortgage. Cancel student debt,” posted Pressley on Twitter.
Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez confused millions of followers on social media over the weekend; bizarrely calling for the suspension of all mortgages across America because “evictions are about power.”
“The way that Congress gave that money to these corporations was in a way that was almost, like, a down payment on a loan… What if we use that same instrument to suspend all mortgage payments in the United States?” asked Ocasio-Cortez.
“Then you can actually cancel rent! We have the plan! Evictions at their core are about power, it’s about how people use certain degrees of power over the vulnerable! We need people power!” she added.
