Report: ‘Cancel Rent’ Cheerleader Ayanna Pressley (D) Made Thousands Off Rental

The Washington Free Beacon is reporting that ‘Squad’ leader Ayanna Pressley (D., Mass.) who has pleaded for the cancellation of rent, has in fact been collecting rent on her rental properties, according to the newspaper.

“Cancel rent. Send recurring cash survival checks. This is literally a matter of life and death,” Pressley tweeted December 7, 2020.

The Beacon reports that the Congresswoman and her husband collected $15,000 in rental income on a Massachusetts property in 2019. It’s unclear whether she collected rent during the COVID pandemic when she was calling for rents to be canceled.

“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,” Beacon reporter Collin Anderson wrote.

Pressley railed on about rent even before COVID, saying in January 2020 that housing is “more than a commodity. It is a basic necessity. It is a human right.”

Meanwhile, as the Beacon points out, Pressley was renting out a 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom house for $2,300/month in 2019. Surely there are a bunch of struggling people in society who can afford that price.

  1. Rules for thee, not to me. (It’s just a simple head-fake. You think any of those whackos looked in her direction when she catered to their perspective from the beginning?)

  2. I mean $15k ain’t really dick. Kind of a nothing-burger tbh. Had she had multiple properties raking in over $100k I could see the hypocrisy angle.

    Also, genuinely curious… Was/Is this chick a chemo patient or just going for the Mr. Clean look?

  3. any sort of rent forgiveness/freeze would likely cause property owners to default on their mortgages on those properties. People need to get back to work and pay their bills accordingly…otherwise we have a mess on our hands. I’m glad I got out of the landlord business.

  4. You can’t make this ish up. Mr. Clean wants landlords to foot the bill for the rent payments of the renters. That is, landlords not named Mr. and Mrs. Clean. Gtfoh with this nonsense. Go shine some floors.

  5. Though there are many more self-inflicted reasons, one of the key reasons American blacks have struggled for so long is self-inflicted: just look at whom they elevate to hero and heroine status.

    To whom one listens, and follows, shows me everything I need to know about that individual.
