Incoming House Democrat calls for cancelling all student and medical debt

Incoming Missouri House Democrat Cori Bush, who has already become a social media star on Twitter, is calling for the cancelling of student and medical debt.

Bush tweeted Wednesday morning “It’s simple, really. We want to cancel student and medical debt because we believe education and healthcare are human rights.”

In a separate tweet Bush wrote “Cancel 👏🏾 it 👏🏾 all 👏🏾”

The same day, sharing a report from The Hill, Bush wrote “Racial & ethnic healthcare inequalities were here before COVID-19.”

She continued “Cycles of poverty, environmental racism, & structural violence lead to increased exposure & cause Black & Brown people to fall into high risk categories.”

“Racism is a public health crisis,” Bush declared.

Bush also wrote “The conversation about racial justice can’t exclude the activists who are leading our fight for justice. This happens every 👏🏾 single 👏🏾 time 👏🏾 we try to talk about race.

If we’re serious about dismantling white supremacy, follow the lead of the people who know how to do it.”
