This Is Not Rhetorical

What banks that received CARES ACT monies own the mortgages and auxiliary agencies that manage the homes and businesses of renters and owners who are looking at eviction and foreclosure?

We need to take action against them. NOW. Billionaires got bailed out. We, the people, are being left high and dry. No one should be put out on the street in a pandemic in winter in America. Not a one. No one should lose what they worked hard to attain because the government shut us down in a pandemic.

We are in pandemic. Where is the government support? Where is the support our taxes should be supporting rather than them financing golfing trips, expensive dinners, lavish ice-cream freezers?

We need to make the banks uncomfortable. We need to make our elected officials uncomfortable. We need to make them pay attention to us and to respond to us right now. Banks got trillions. We are hungry. Elected officials are working at our behest. We are hungry. We are hungry and about to be put out on the street, some of us losing what we worked a lifetime to attain.

We, as a class, need to take action to stall out this eviction crisis in the current context. The people need to stand together. We are the precariat. We are the working poor. We are the middle class. We are those who live paycheck to paycheck. We are those who receive money in exchange for our labor, be it manual or mental. We are the redundant.

We better wake up and take a stand.
