Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez confused millions of followers on social media over the weekend; bizarrely calling for the suspension of all mortgages across America because “evictions are about power.”
“The way that Congress gave that money to these corporations was in a way that was almost, like, a down payment on a loan… What if we use that same instrument to suspend all mortgage payments in the United States?” asked Ocasio-Cortez.
“Then you can actually cancel rent! We have the plan! Evictions at their core are about power, it’s about how people use certain degrees of power over the vulnerable! We need people power!” she added.

Senator Elizabeth Warren called for the total debt relief of Puerto Rico on social media Friday; saying she’s been fighting for the island “long before the hurricanes.”
