Ilhan Omar’s New Bill Wants Feds to Seize Rental Properties From Landlords
Article from Reason by Christian Britschgi.
The movement to cancel rent during the COVID-19 pandemic is going national. On Friday, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D–Minn.) introduced the Rent and Mortgage Cancellation Act, which does what the title suggests, and much, much more.
Omar’s legislation—which is being co-sponsored by “squad” Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D–N.Y.), Rashida Tlaib (D–Mich.), Ayanna Pressley (D–Mass.), alongside three other progressive Democrats and a bevy of left-wing activist groups—would cancel rent and mortgage payments for the entire country “regardless of income or payment level.”
The rent and mortgage suspension would only apply to primary residences and would remain in effect until a month after the end of the national emergency President Donald Trump declared on March 13. Tenants and homeowners would not have to make payments on leases or mortgages during that whole time, nor could their landlords or lenders use their failure to pay as a cause for eviction or foreclosure.
In addition, tenants and homeowners could not be charged late fees or penalties, nor could they have their credit scores downgraded. People who feel they’ve suffered an “adverse action” for exercising these protections could sue their landlord or mortgage lender in federal court for damages.

Ilhan (The Bigamist) Omar is proposing what the Bust and Grab Party does best: bust and grab property from citizens!
She is a Commie … pure and simple.
Why is this pos not in jail yet?
Better yet, how about an end to Congress’ paychecks and spending until the country is back to 3% unemployment which is considered full employment and about where we were before this totally unnecessary shut down that is destroying the economy. I’m sure President Trump wouldn’t mind having his checks stopped too since he donates his entire presidential salary to charity.
Why cant people see that she and the dems are real life terrorists in this country. They hate everything American and want to destroy it. Every idea they have has a really bad reason behind it. Start paying attention or you will lose all of your freedoms. Trump 2020
Trump 2020. We don’t need Joe and Hunter Biden and their Chinese connections. And we don’t need ‘sanctuary state’ Andrew Cuomo either
Let’s see. They want to create a law to void millions of legal agreements devastating property owners and investors across the nation who did nothing wrong and call it just. WOW!
Absolutely WOW. She is a Commie pure and simple.
Among all of the crap she has said and done, some of it must be illegal enough to get her arrested. When is some part of our law enforcement system going to take action???
I said for Omar to keep her little girl ideas at home and leave finances to the grown-ups. This site didn`t like that. How about it you don`t get paid.
SOMEONE SHOULD SEIZE TOWEL HEADS BRAIN FOR SCIENCE AND PUT IT IN A JAR WITH FORMALDEHYDE FOR DEPORTATION TO WHERE THE HELL SHE EVER CAME FROM!
Omar should keep her little girl ideas at home and leave finances to the grown-ups.
Just proves that she is nothing more than a stupid village idiot and should be removed from congress.
Ghetto dwelling, brother banging rag headed moron
Another glaring example of how the democrats love to steal and spend other people’s money. It is a safe bet that not one of those that support such an atrocious bill, are due rent or mortgage payments. Communism on full display folks, vote wisely this fall. KAG 2020
The entire group of communist thieves needs to be exterminated.
But many landlords are average people who own only a few units. So, then, they shouldn’t have to pay their mortgages until they resume getting rent payments.
Oh, but many of the mortgage holders are small banks that are just getting by, so they shouldn’t have to pay their depositors interest or allow them to withdraw their money until they resume getting mortgage payments.
Oh, but many of the depositors are average people who now are out of work and need their savings to make ends meet.
Omar has nothing but insane ideas.
