Radical Representative Caught in Embarrassing Hypocrisy

Representative Ayanna Pressley wants to cancel rent even though she made a lot of cash as a landlord.

According to The Washington Free Beacon:

The progressive congresswoman Ayanna Pressley (D., Mass.) has called rent cancellation legislation “literally a matter of life and death.” At the same time, she has collected cash from her own rental properties.

Pressley and her husband made as much as $15,000 in rental income in 2019 after purchasing a $658,000 Boston home, according to property records and financial disclosures reviewed by the Washington Free Beacon. The income appears to come over the course of four months—the unit was first listed for $2,500 a month in June 2019 and the posting was removed in August.

Pressley and her husband refinanced the building as a multifamily investment property in August 2020. That requires the couple to maintain rent loss insurance.

Even if Pressley waived rent when the pandemic hit, she could recoup the lost income through a bill she cosponsored with fellow progressive representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) and Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.). The Squad members introduced the Rent and Mortgage Cancellation Act in both 2020 and 2021, which would require the federal government to reimburse landlords for lost rent for the duration of the pandemic.

It is unclear if or when the bill will be voted on.

Ain’t it funny how all these loud mouthed self-avowed “socialists” have a craving for money made through capitalistic ventures?

So she wants landlords not to collect the rent from people because of covid, even though stimulus checks went out to help people, they got increased unemployment checks which aren’t taxable, and these same people went out and spent the money on other things. But landlords should suffer. Oh but wait! Now they want the US taxpayers – who were actually working – to pay the landlords for the loss rent! This is theft. Taking from taxpayers to pay landlords so the tenants can live there free! The only losers in this situation are the taxpayers who have had to actually WORK during covid!

This is why lefties are lefties. Democrats are where they are because they seek wealth and power.
