Squad Members Tlaib and Pressley Disclose Rental Income After Pushing Rent Cancellation

Squad Members Tlaib and Pressley Disclose Rental Income After Pushing Rent Cancellation

Both collected thousands of dollars in rent as they called for other landlords to go without it.

The Biden administration fully embraced the extension of the eviction moratorium declared by the CDC at The Squad’s behest. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Cori Bush did a public protest, but other squad members pushed just as hard for it.

Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) were both vocal proponents of canceling the rent, yet both of them have collected rental income over the last year.

Cameron Cawthorne of FOX News has the details on Tlaib:

Rashida Tlaib discloses thousands of dollars in rental income, despite co-sponsoring ‘cancel rent’ bill

Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s annual financial disclosure shows that she made thousands of dollars in rental income last year, despite being a co-sponsor of a bill to cancel rent during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Tlaib joined fellow “Squad” Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., and other progressives in April 2020 to co-sponsor Rep. Ilhan Omar’s, D-Minn., bill to “institute a nationwide cancellation of rents and home mortgage payments through the duration of the coronavirus pandemic.”

She tweeted during the beginning of the pandemic in March 2020 that there should be a “moratorium” on mortgage and rent payments to “combat this public health crisis.”

“I’m joining Rep. @IlhanOmar and fellow colleagues for a press conference on the Rent & Mortgage Cancellation Act,” Tlaib tweeted earlier this year amid the re-introduction of the bill. “Our residents need help during this ongoing pandemic & this legislation seeks to provide that help to ensure our neighbors have the housing they need.”

Peter Hasson of FOX News has the story on Pressley:

Ayanna Pressley, ‘cancel rent’ advocate, discloses thousands of dollars in rental income

Massachusetts Rep. Ayanna Pressley’s annual financial disclosure shows she and her husband made thousands of dollars in rental income last year.

Pressley has been one of the most prominent advocates for canceling rent during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We must cancel rent, extend eviction and foreclosure moratoriums, provide rental assistance, and offer legal representation for those at risk of eviction,” Pressley, a member of the far-left “Squad,” wrote in a Dec. 2020 tweet.

She introduced a bill in March 2021 that, if passed, would have canceled rent and mortgage payments nationwide…

Pressley’s 2020 financial disclosure, filed on Friday, disclosed between $5,000 and $15,000 in rental income from a Boston property in her husband’s name. The property was converted into a multi-family apartment after it was purchased, according to Pressley’s disclosure.

I won’t ask if you’re surprised by any of this because I know you’re not.

Leaders on the left call for the defunding of police, then hire personal security. This is more of the same thing.

Do as I say, not as I do.

Come on people we all know to follow the money trail on anything liberal.

Money trail? Ayanna Pressley looks super clean. Her head is brighter than my future.

When you become a Democrat, you’re required to take an Oath of Hypocrisy. That oath, unlike the Article VI oath to follow the Constitution, is obeyed to the letter.

In the era of police de-funding, you can’t expect a Congress member’s salary to cover the cost of private security details. After all, $174,000 dollars doesn’t go as far as it used to.

Two loathesome turds.

    At least turds are useful, like in fertilizer.

    When either of these maggots croak (which won’t be soon enough), their bodies should be dissolved in acid to remove the remains from the human DNA chain.

Maybe everyone should identify as a Democrat.

Then you:
get to avoid prosecution,
get government contracts,
get a pass by the media,
get to be racist without being called a racist,
have all hypocritical acts overlooked by voters and media,

The rent is too damn high?

Wait, Democrats are hypocrites? I’m shocked, I tell you. Just shocked.

Does cancel mean “cancel”, or just “defer”? Either way, an additional 8-month moratorium on evictions, plus a foreclosure moratorium on top, sure makes it look like they’re intentionally trying to destroy the banking system and crash the housing market. I can’t believe they’re too stupid to see the consequences of what they’re doing.

    They aren’t. It’s in The Plan.

    They see the consequences, “one move ahead.” There isn’t a communist in the world that doesn’t want to smash the landlord class out of principle. And if they also happen to be in the landlord class, it goes right over their heads.

Do any of you have the overwhelming desire to polish Ayanna Pressley’s bald head with a belt sander…or is it just me?

those units are probably rented out to her donors who are skating campaign finance rules.

Bill DeBlasio is undoubtedly still collecting rent on his two houses in Brooklyn. And he’s surely given the tenant in his old home notice to move out by the end of the year, since he’s going to need somewhere to live come January 1.

    With murder rising, the homeless population mushrooming and the quality of life declining, the city has gone downhill so much during his time in office maybe he’s looking for a better place to live.

“Ad feminas”

Those gals so pretty they probly still collecting fees from accommodating camels.

Regardless of where I am, when a picture of either of these two is forced into my view – I always am overwhelmed with the stench of “unsanitary, street people”. … And, even I think that may be insulting to street people.
