NOT ‘GOOD ENOUGH’: Warren Says Feds Must ‘Cancel Student Debt’ to Combat Coronavirus

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.20.20

Failed presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren doubled-down on her demands for the cancellation of all student debt Friday; saying the federal government must eliminate outstanding loans to help fight the Coronavirus.

“This still isn’t good enough. We need to #cancelstudentdebt payments during this emergency, not pause them. And the federal government should cancel at least $10,000 for all student borrowers to help families & our economy,” posted Warren on social media.

Former presidential hopeful Kamala Harris urged the federal government to release “low-risk” inmates from prisons to avoid potential Coronavirus outbreaks in jails and detention centers across the country.

“Harris, a onetime Democratic presidential hopeful, sent a letter on Thursday to Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) Director Michael Carvajal arguing that the close quarters prisoners live in – paired with the strict measures the BOP is taking distance inmates from the public – makes them particularly susceptible to the COVID-19 virus,” reports Fox News.

“In the midst of this crisis, BOP should be taking reasonable steps to reduce the incarcerated population and guard against potential exposure to coronavirus,” Harris said. “At this time, BOP—in coordination with the U.S. Department of Justice — can and should request the release of low-risk individuals who are in pretrial detention because of money bail.”

“But instead, it appears that BOP is responding to the threat of coronavirus with extreme measures that both maintain current levels of incarceration and penalize the incarcerated community— including by suspending social and legal visitation, suspending inmate facility transfers, and potentially locking down institutions,” she added.

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.16.20

Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez weighed-in Monday on the country’s efforts to combat the effects of Coronavirus; calling for “climate transition,” education expansion, free healthcare, and apprenticeships to offset the disease.

“What we should seriously start to consider now for the medium & long term (bc it will take time) is New Deal-style policy. We need a mix of policies to help put a lot of people to work. Climate transition, edu expansion w/ apprenticeships & colleges, M4A. These are jobs bills,” posted AOC on social media.

Her comments come hours after NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio announce a citywide shutdown on all theaters, bars, restaurants, and nightclubs to prevent new infections.

“Mayor Bill de Blasio announced late Sunday that the Big Apple’s nightlife will shut down and its restaurants and bars will only provide takeout or delivery service as authorities struggle to get ahead of the mounting coronavirus pandemic,” reports the NY Post.

Businesses have until 9am Tuesday morning to close their dining rooms to patrons. The move also applies to Starbucks, McDonalds, and other quick-service restaurants.

“Our lives are all changing in ways that were unimaginable just a week ago,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio.

“We are taking a series of actions that we never would have taken otherwise in an effort to save the lives of loved ones and our neighbors,” he added.

“This virus can spread rapidly through the close interactions New Yorkers have in restaurants, bars and places where we sit close together,” de Blasio’s statement said. “We have to break that cycle.”
