Radical Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib raised eyebrows among American taxpayers this week; claiming the public should pay-off her student debt despite earning $174,000 each year as a member of Congress.
“I worked full time, Monday through Friday, and took weekend classes to get my law degree. And still, close to $200,000 in debt. And I still owe over $70,000 and most of it was interest,” claimed the lawmaker.

Another member of the so-called ‘Squad’ also faced a growing backlash Monday after Rep. Ocasio-Cortez claimed ‘smash-and-grab’ robberies were “not actually” occurring.
“A lot of these allegations of organized retail theft are not actually panning out,” Ocasio-Cortez stated.
“I believe it’s a Walgreens in California cited it, but the data didn’t back it up,” she added.
“Organized retail crime is one of the top challenges facing” the company, Walgreens told The Washington Times, adding that the crime “has evolved beyond shoplifting and petty theft to the sale of stolen and counterfeit goods online.”
“I don’t know what data she is talking about,” said Rep. Rodney Davis, an Illinois Republican.

'UNACCEPTABLE': Bernie, AOC, Tlaib Rip Bipartisan $900B CoVID Bill, Demand ‘Direct Payments’ to Americans
Far-left politicians slammed the bipartisan CoVID relief package making its way through the US Senate this week; saying the bill fails to deliver “direct payments” to working-class Americans and struggling small businesses.
“It is unacceptable that the proposal does not even do what the CARES Act did and provide, at the very least, a $1,200 direct payment to working-class Americans and $500 for their kids,” Sanders said in a statement last week. “Tens of millions of Americans living in desperation today would receive absolutely no financial help from this proposal. That is not acceptable.”
Canada did $2,000/monthly. The US is the richest nation on earth and a 2nd stimulus check is getting blocked bc GOP want corporate bailouts & austerity in “exchange” for it.
Maybe if everyone in the US incorporated as an LLC, Mitch McConnell would actually do something for them.

“There’s a lot of young Jewish people that I know that are absolutely against the occupation and I wanted you, because often on this program, we have the freedom to address the fact that something that you know people, it’s an oxymoron, how do you have white supremacist Jews? How do you have people like Stephen Miller? How do you have these individuals who are legit aligning with racism and white supremacy, but they’re Jewish and it’s something that most people can’t wrap their brains around. But it’s a real thing and what’s going on with Israel and Palestine, while it’s very deep, it is very, very criminal. It is very, very unjust,” said ‘EBRO in the morning.’
“Absolutely, and I think to where we’re at as a country when it comes to Israel-Palestine is very much a generational thing. I think that when we start looking at it through that lens, a lot of this stuff starts to make sense. It’s like what you’re talking about, young Jews in Israel are sick of this,” said Ocasio-Cortez.
President Trump called-out ‘The Squad’ on social media earlier this month; blasting the four freshman Congresswomen as “racist troublemakers” and “not very smart.”
“The ‘Squad’ is a very Racist group of troublemakers who are young, inexperienced, and not very smart. They are pulling the once great Democrat Party far left, and were against humanitarian aid at the Border…And are now against ICE and Homeland Security. So bad for our Country!” posted the President on Twitter.
‘The Squad’ consists of Representatives Ocasio-Cortez, Omar, Tlaib, and Pressley.
Rashida Tlaib sounded the alarm on President Trump’s tax cuts Monday; pledging to repeal the legislation and give the money “back to the people that earned it.”
“Recently, I introduced the Boost Act. This legislation completely repeals the GOP Tax Scam… Do you know what I did with that money? What I said? We’re going to go ahead and put it in the pockets of every day Americans… We give it back to the people that earned it,” said Tlaib.
