Last week, Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar offered up this solution to the problem of people struggling to pay their rent during the COVID19 crisis

She suggested it again yesterday:
S̶u̶s̶p̶e̶n̶d̶ Cancel rent and mortgages

No surprise that her hero Bernie Sanders would advocate for the same thing:
We need to cancel rent and cancel mortgages for the duration of this crisis.

That’s cute, Bernie. But it’s not a viable solution for reasons that should be obvious to anyone with a fundamental understanding of economics.
If we’re looking for ways to help people keep more of their money, Ted Cruz’s idea seems a little more appealing:
How about we cancel taxes? https://t.co/y2p9nljsfx

Sounds pretty good.
I loathe politicians as a rule and I'm married, but marry me. https://t.co/Ivxi7KziyQ
