Thursday on Twitter, far-left “Squad” member Rep. Ayanna Pressley called on fellow Democrats to cancel up to $50,000 in student debt and provide $2,000 monthly payments to both Americans and illegal aliens, after President Joe Biden urged his Party to “go big” in the next coronavirus relief package.
“That’s right,” Pressley agreed. “We can cancel at least $50K in student debt right now and send families, including our immigrant neighbors, $2,000 survival checks a month until this crisis is over. Let’s make it happen.”
Yes, by all means, let’s make it happen and watch present and future generations of American citizens be consumed by insurmountable debt and enslaved to big-government largesse.
Pressley is one of dozens of radical leftists in political office who signed a letter to both Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris last month, recommending recurring payments in any future coronavirus relief proposals. “Recurring direct payments until the economy recovers will help ensure that people can meet their basic needs, provide racially equitable solutions, and shorten the length of the recession,” the letter reads.
“As we look at the coming year, another one-time round of checks would provide a temporary lifeline, but when that money runs out, families will once again struggle to pay for basic necessities,” it continues. Checks must extend to “all immigrant workers, refugees, and their families.”
The reason Americans are hurting in the first place is that Democrat governors and mayors have enforced draconian pandemic lockdowns for nearly a year now that have forced countless businesses to close and countless more Americans to lose their jobs. The totalitarian Democrats own this economic catastrophe, which they created to damage President Trump in the November election, put Americans in big-government chains, and absorb millions of illegals into the system.
