Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has called for the cancellation of debts, including rent and mortgage payments, across America due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Omar tweeted Thursday:

"Evicting millions of people during a pandemic would be a moral outrage."

"Cancel rent and mortgage payments now."

The Democratic congresswoman linked to a CNN article warning of a potential "huge wave of evictions" in January.

The federal government passed a massive relief package earlier this year, but Democrats like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi have delayed payments over 'politics.'

Meanwhile, fellow 'squad' member Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez suggested paying people to stay at home to prevent the coronavirus from spreading.

AOC tweeted Thursday:

“To get the virus under control, we need to pay people to stay home."

Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota agreed that money is the cure.

"We need to send every American a check until this crisis is over,” she tweeted.

Biden coronavirus task force member, Dr. Michael Osterholm, said the stringent lockdown lasting four to six weeks while paying workers’ wages is under consideration.

"We could pay for a package right now to cover all of the wages, lost wages for individual workers, for losses to small companies, to medium-sized companies or city, state, county governments."

A senior economist with the Economic Policy Institute, Elise Gould, seconded the motion.

“Health experts have been talking about this all along, to stay home and make it financially viable for people to do so,” Gould said.
