AOC: We Need to Both Give People Cash and Cancel Their Payments

‘I would like to see a mortgage and rent moratorium and moratorium on major payments in the United States’
By Grabien Staff

EXCERPT:

OCASIO-CORTEZ: “Well, you know, I think there are critical things that we need, that all-Americans need, but especially in the Bronx and in Queens. We need to make sure that we get paid sick leave to workers. We need to make sure that we get sufficient checks to people. I would like to see a mortgage and rent moratorium and a moratorium on major payments in the United States. The thing is that people are talking about these cash infusions, and there’s — there’s not much that a small $1,000 can do for a family if they are out of work and still need to pay rent, student loans, major consumer loans, a mortgage, et cetera. So we really need to make sure that, you know, the dollars and dimes actually make sense and add up for working families' expenses for a month. And it needs to be lined up with the science as well in terms of how we’re asking people to self-quarantine."
