Tlaib ripped after she says she has close to $200k in Debt while calling for Debt Cancellation

Speaking on the House floor, progressive squad member Rashida Tlaib argued for debt cancellation by using herself as an example.

“I worked full time, Monday through Friday, and took weekend classes to get my law degree. And still, close to $200,000 in debt. And I still owe over $70,000 and most of it was interest,” Tlaib said.

Harmeet Dhillon fired back “You’re making nearly $200k now, well above the average salary for a lawyer in DC, though you would not likely make that in the private sector, having passed the bar three years after graduating and apparently never having worked as an attorney. Pay your debt, what is the issue?”
