Rashida Tlaib made $100k from tenants while promoting Rent and Mortgage Cancellation Act

PM:

Michigan Congresswoman and Detroit landlord Rashida Tlaib, who co-sponsored the Rent and Mortgage Cancellation Act, profited upwards of $100,000 from rental home tenants during the Covid pandemic.

Fox News reports that Tlaib’s latest annual financial disclosure report showed she made between $15,001 and $50,000 in rental income from her property in 2021, and she profited the same amount in 2020.

Tlaib is a member of the so-called progressive “Squad” along with members such as AOC and Ilhan Omar, all of whom backed the defunct Rent and Mortgage Cancellation Act, which looked to cancel rent and mortgage payments throughout the duration of the coronavirus pandemic.

The bill would have canceled rent and mortgage payments nationwide through 2022 and also set aside a relief fund to cover landlord and mortgage holder lost payments due to that cancellation. Landlords, such as Tlaib, would not receive traditional rent from tenants but rather government reimbursement payments from taxpayers.

The bill also sought to to increase affordable public housing by “creating an optional buyout fund to fully finance the purchase of private rental properties by non-profits, public housing authorities, cooperatives, community land trusts, and states or local governments.” more here
