Our guest this morning is Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley. Let’s go on the record now in her second term, the democrat from the state seventh district is a standard bearer for the progressive movement is Congress and the biden administration. Following her lead or hitting the brakes. Let’s go on the record from WCVB Channel five. The inside word from Washington to Beacon Hill. Today’s news makers are going on the record. Welcome to L. Tr I’m at harding along the news center. Five political reporter Janet woo. It’s great to have you with us on this Mother’s Day vaccine. Progress making this Mother’s Day much better than the last. But here in studio C we do continue to observe social distancing protocols. And we look forward to the day that we don’t have to be so far apart that you and I could be closer to each other and the congresswoman could be closer to us as well. But right now she’s joining us live via Zoom. She’s massachusetts Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley. So glad you could be here. It’s great to have you with us. Happy Mother’s Day. Thanks for being here. Morning. Thank you. Congresswoman. One of your biggest issues is student debt. The President says more than $10,000 forgiveness only benefits those who went to prices schools like Harvard and Yale. Is he right? No, that’s a very harmful in flaw characterization of the issue. This is a nearly $2 trillion dollar crisis and it certainly is not only burdening um, white students who attended graduate who have graduate school debt. In fact, uh, this is more than a millennial and gen Z issue, the fastest growing population of those who, oh, student debt are 50 plus and so far as the commonwealth of massachusetts at Janet, we have some 855,000 plus borrowers in the commonwealth totaling an upwards of $33.3 billion in debt. And each of them are paying monthly a student loan payment. That is the equivalent of a mortgage. They have a minimum of $30,000 worth of debt. So what, so what they tell me is that $10,000 is barely interest and that is why we need to go bold to meet the scale and scope of this nearly $2 trillion crisis. I have 76 year olds in my district who said they are still paying on student loans. So this is a racial justice issue. It is an economic justice issue and I’m calling on president biden to use the authority given to him by Congress in the Higher Education Act. With the stroke of a pen to cancel broad based $50,000 worth of debt, which I think is important for our strategy for a just robust inequitable recovery. We need this to jump start the economy, Let’s eliminate the debt, alleviate the burden and jump start our economy while also achieving racial justice. Black students borrow more than their white counterparts because of predatory policies like redlining, which have prohibited our family’s abilities to build generational wealth. So 85 of students, black student borrowers, so they have no choice but to take out loans and there are five times more likely to default than their white counterparts. And we haven’t even begun to talk about those who have been the victims of for profit colleges and universities who have predatory marketing and deceptive business practices. So this is a crisis and we need to act like it. Um, so, but the question is, can you can convince the president as well as the Republicans to uh, you know, raise that limit from $10,000. I think we’re making progress. You know, the biden Harris administration have a bold mandate from the multigenerational, multiracial coalition that elected them comprised of issues based activists who care about canceling student debt, who are burdened by it. And I’m encouraged by the conversations that we’ve had with the White House. I didn’t meet with them directly on this issue. We know that they are working with legal counsel to better understand just how much they can cancel. So I’m responsible where we are Congresswoman. This this stuff tales nicely into our next question. The Biden presidency is almost four months old. So are progressives like yourself surprised, please. And I don’t want to put words in your mouth. What do you think of his 1st 100 days? Well, I’ve been very encouraged. Please let’s bear in mind here that my freshman term in Congress was under the backdrop of an administration, um, that issued harmful rhetoric and policies. And so we’re digging out from that after four years of a fire hose of an administration that really have contempt for working families and every person who calls this country home to finally have an administration that is leading with compassion, who are thoughtful and committed partners is certainly refreshing. And I’m encouraged by the infrastructure plan just as an example and the american rescue plan as well. There are many progressive priorities, which I do think it’s important to underscore that these priorities are responsive and reflected to the needs of the people that we represent. So we need to go bold exactly what I was going to ask you. Where does he need to go, Boulder? And is it beyond the college debt elimination? Does it need to get even bolder than that? Well, I love what he’s outlined. Um, I’m encouraged by what has been outlined rather in the infrastructure package and now it’s up to Congress to legislate and what I’m going to continue to, to, to push for. Um, is that that bill is as inclusive that packages as inclusive as bold as possible to meet the scale and scope of the crisis. Um, so that means, you know, these investments in home, community based care, which is a disability justice is to paid family and medical leave. Um, and this expanded definition of infrastructure. This was something when I was a candidate that I, that I ran on wanting to expand that infrastructure definition to include housing because of course it is. And so I’m encouraged that his package just outlined, uh, and expansion of the definition of infrastructure to include housing, to include the care economy and to go beyond the traditional definition of roads, bridges, and highways. So I’m encouraged by the framework, I’m going to continue to push for it to be as bold and comprehensive as possible to meet the scale and scope of the crisis to meet the moment. And now it’s up to Congress to legislate and the american Rescue plan. Many of those investments, including those direct relief payments, what I call survivor checks, um, and expanded eligibility of those payments to include, um, mixed immigration status, households, adult dependents, the child tax credit, which we’re now fighting to make permanent. These were progressive priorities. Uh, let’s talk about immigration. How’s he doing on the crisis on the southern border? You know, what should he be doing? That? He’s not doing. We know he’s raised the limit on the number of people coming in. What else does he need to do? Well, I’m encouraged that he was responsive to and he did our calls and our cries to, uh, to increase that cap amount. We, we need to be reversing the hurt and harm that was caused by the trump administration these last four years. I was encouraged by some of those early decisions, by executive action, reversing some of those harms when it comes to immigrants rights to reproductive justice, to climate justice. Uh, and I’m glad that he was responsive to, to activists and advocates and progressives like myself who encouraged him to do away with the hurt caused by the trump administration. We can’t be having any hold overs from that administration and that cap needed to be lifted. And do you think he would have done that if you had not put of you and other progressives have not pushed him? Well, I don’t know. You know, I never stopped organizing. I never stopped mobilizing. I never stopped pushing for more because the massachusetts seventh and people throughout the country have been experiencing layered crises with this pandemic, the economic hardship that it has wrought all against the backdrop of a reckoning on racial injustice. Um, and so we have to go bold to meet the moment and to meet the scale of these three. Um, these three completed crises that the american people have been experiencing. Let’s talk about the world that you work and live in the U. S. Capitol. Police report, threats against says, the threats against members of Congress have increased 100 and 7% Since 2020 107%. So are you when your colleagues feeling this day to day feeling this pressure, feeling this, my word fear? Well, those threats certainly are not new for me and um, certainly, uh, there is heightened vulnerability in the wake of the insurrection. Um, and the polarization and the cruelty that we continue to see play out from some of my colleagues across the aisle. I would never have envisioned a time, um, where we would need to issue resolutions saying that people could not bring firearms to the House floor or that we would need to have metal detectors for people to enter. You know, the thing is the fact that it took an insurrection and attempt to interrupt the peaceful transfer of power, the ratifying of the Electoral College for a violent white supremacist ma to seize the capital, causing great trauma, injury and in fact, loss of life for many to appreciate for the first time the threat that white supremacy is to every american life into our democracy is tragic. But we are now in this moment, there is a heightened awareness. Uh and I hope that that means that legislatively, that there is the political will and the courage and a commitment to both root out white supremacy and to actively dismantle systemic and structural racism, which is the cousin of white supremacy. Um I think, you know, people see the insurrection of January six and they say that is vile and they feel very disconnected from that and that would never be them and they would never be compliant with such a thing. Um but we are, you know, complicit um in the disparate outcomes that we see played bear and exacerbated from this pandemic because of systemic and structural racism.
IT’S SUNDAY, MAY 9, HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY. OUR GUEST THIS MORNING IS CONGRESSWOMAN AYANNA PRESSLEY. LET’S GO “ON THE RECORD.” NOW IN HER SECOND TERM, THE DEMOCRAT FROM THE STATE’S 7TH DISTRICT IS A STANDARD-BEARER FOR THE PROGRESSIVE MOVEMENT. IS CONGRESS AND THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION FOLLOWING HER LEAD, OR HITTING THE BRAKES? LET’S GO “ON THE RECORD.” >> FROM WCVB CHANNEL 5, THE INSIDE WORD FROM WASHINGTON TO BEGIN HILL, TODAY’S NEWSMAKERS ARE GOING “ON THE RECORD.” ED: WELCOME TO ” OTR.” I’M ED HARDING ALONG WITH NEWSCENTER 5 POLITICAL REPORTER JANET WU. VACCINE PROGRESS MAKING THIS MOTHER’S DAY MUCH BETTER THAN THE LAST. HERE IN STUDIO-C WE CONTINUE TO OBSERVE SOCIAL DISTANCING PROTOCOLS, AND LOOK FORWARD TO WHEN WE DON’T HAVE TO BE SO FAR APART. WU AND I CAN BE CLOSER, AND THE CONGRESSWOMAN CAN, AS WELL. RIGHT NOW, SHE IS JOIN US LIVE VIA ZOOM. MASSACHUSETTS CONGRESSWOMAN AYANNA PRESSLEY. HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY. THANKS FOR BEING HERE. REP. PRESSLEY: THANK YOU. JANET: ONE OF YOUR BIGGEST ISSUES IS STUDENT DEBT. THE PRESIDENT SAYS MORE THAN $10,000 FORGIVENESS ONLY BENEFITS THOSE WHO WENT TO PRICEY SCHOOLS LIKE HARVARD AND YALE. IS HE RIGHT? REP. PRESSLEY: NO, THAT IS A VERY HARMFUL AND FLAWED CHARACTERIZATION OF THE ISSUE. THIS IS A NEARLY $2 TRILLION CRISIS, AND IT CERTAINLY IS NOT ONLY BURDENING WHITE STUDENTS WHO ATTENDED GRADUATE OR WHO HAVE GRADUATE SCHOOL DEBT. IN FACT, THIS IS MORE THAN A MILLENNIAL AND GEN Z ISSUE. THE MAJORITY ARE 50 PLUS. WE HAVE 55,000 PLUS BORROWERS IN THE COMMONWEALTH, TOTALING AND UPWARDS OF $33.3 BILLION IN DEBT AND EACH ARE PAYING MONTHLY A STUDENT LOAN PAYMENT THAT IS THE EQUIVALENT OF A MORTGAGE. THEY HAVE A MINIMUM OF $30,000 WORTH OF DEBT, SO WHAT THEY TELL ME IS THAT $10,000 IS BARELY INTEREST, AND THAT IS WHY WE NEED TO GO BOLD TO MEET THE SCALE AND SCOPE OF THIS NEARLY $2 TRILLION CRISIS. I HAVE 76-YEAR-OLDS IN MY DISTRICT WHO SAY THEY ARE STILL PAYING STUDENT LOANS. IT IS A RACIAL, ECONOMIC JUSTICE ISSUE, AND I’M CALLING ON PRESIDENT BIDEN TO USE THE AUTHORITY GIVEN TO HIM BY CONGRESS WITH THE STROKE OF A PEN IN THE HIGHER EDUCATION ACT TO CANCEL $50,000 WORTH OF DEBT, WHICH I THINK IS IMPORTANT FOR OUR STRATEGY AND FOR A JUST, ROBUST AND EQUITABLE RECOVERY. WE NEED THIS TO JUMPSTART THE ECONOMY. LET’S ELIMINATE THE DEBT, ALLEVIATE THE BURDEN AND JUMPSTART OUR ECONOMY WHILE ACHIEVING RACIAL JUSTICE. BLACK STUDENTS BORROW MORE THAN THEIR WHITE COUNTERPARTS BECAUSE OF PREDATORY POLICIES LIKE REDLINING, WHICH WERE HIT FAMILY ABILITIES TO BUILD GENERATIONAL WEALTH. 85% OF BLACK STUDENT BORROWERS FEEL THEY HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO TAKE OUT LOANS AND ARE FIVE TIMES MORE LIKELY TO DEFAULT THAN WHITE COUNTERPARTS. WE HAVEN’T EVEN BEGUN TO TALK ABOUT THOSE WHO ARE THE VICTIMS OF FOR-PROFIT COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES WHO HAVE PREDATORY MARKETING AND DECEPTIVE BUSINESS PRACTICES. THIS IS A CRISIS AND WE NEED TO ACT LIKE IT. JANET: THE QUESTION IS, CAN YOU CONVINCE THE PRESIDENT AND THE REPUBLICANS TO RAISE THAT LIMIT FROM $10,000? REP. PRESSLEY: I THINK WE ARE MAKING PROGRESS. THE BIDEN-HARRIS ADMINISTRATION HAVE A BOLD MANDATE FROM THE MULTIGENERATIONAL AND MULTIRACIAL COALITION THAT COLLECTED THEM COMPRISED OF ACTIVISTS WHO CARE ABOUT CANCELING STUDENT DEBT AND ARE BURDENED BY IT. I AM ENCOURAGED BY THE CONVERSATIONS WE’VE HAD WITH THE WHITE HOUSE AND I DID MEET WITH THEM DIRECTLY ON THE ISSUE, AND THEY ARE WORKING WITH EAGLE COUNSEL TO BETTER UNDERSTAND HOW MUCH THEY CAN CANCEL. ED: CONGRESSWOMAN, THIS DOVETAILS NICELY INTO THE NEXT QUESTION. THE BIDEN PRESIDENCY IS ALMOST 4 MONTHS OLD. ARE PROGRESSIVES LIKE YOURSELF SURPRISED, PLEASED WITH HIS FIRST 100 DAYS? I DO NOT WANT TO PUT WORDS IN YOUR MOUTH. WHAT DO YOU THINK? REP. PRESSLEY: I HAVE BEEN ENCOURAGED. LET’S BEAR IN MIND THAT MY FRESHMAN TERM IN CONGRESS WAS UNDER THE BACKDROP OF AN ADMINISTRATION THAT ISSUED HARMFUL RHETORIC AND POLICIES, SO WE ARE DIGGING OUT FROM THAT AFTER FOUR YEARS OF A FIREHOSE OF AN ADMINISTRATION THAT HAD CONTEMPT FOR WORKING FAMILIES AND EVERY PERSON WHO CALLS THIS COUNTRY HOME TO FINALLY HAVE AN ADMINISTRATION LEADING WITH COMPASSION, WHO ARE THOUGHTFUL AND COMMITTED PARTNERS, AND IT IS CERTAINLY REFRESHING. I AM ENCOURAGED BY THE INFRASTRUCTURE PLAN AS AN EXAMPLE, AND THE AMERICAN RESCUE PLAN, AS WILL. THERE ARE MANY PROGRESSIVE PRIORITIES, WHICH I THINK IS IMPORTANT TO UNDERSCORE THAT THEY REFLECT THE NEEDS OF THE PEOPLE WE REPRESENT. WE NEED TO GO BOLD. ED: EXACTLY WHAT I WAS GOING TO ASK. WHERE DOES HE NEED TO GO BOLD OR? — BOLDER? IS IT BEYOND COLLEGE DEBT ELIMINATION AND DOES IT NEED TO BE BOLDER THAN THAT? REP. PRESSLEY: I LOVE WHAT HE HAS OUTLINED. I AM ENCOURAGED WHAT HAS BEEN OUTLINED ON THE INFRASTRUCTURE PACKAGE AND NOW IT IS UP TO CONGRESS TO LEGISLATE. WHAT I AM GOING TO CONTINUE TO PUSH FOR IS THAT THE BILL IS AS INCLUSIVE, THE PACKAGE IS AS INCLUSIVE AND BOLD AS POSSIBLE TO MEET THE SCOPE AND SCALE OF THE CRISIS. THAT MEANS THESE INVESTMENTS IN HOME IMMUNITY BASED CAMPS IS A COMMUNITY JUSTICE ISSUE, PAID FAMILY AND MEDICAL LEAVE, AND THIS EXPANDED DEFINITION OF INFRASTRUCTURE. THIS IS SOMETHING I RAN ON, WANTING TO EXPAND IT TO INCLUDE HOUSING BECAUSE IT IS. I AM ENCOURAGED THAT HIS PACKAGE OUTLINES AN EXPANSION OF THE DEFINITION OF INFRASTRUCTURE TO INCLUDE HOUSING AND THE CARE ECONOMY AND GO BEYOND THE TRADITIONAL DEFINITION OF ROADS, BRIDGES AND HIGHWAYS. I AM ENCOURAGED BY THE FRAMEWORK. I WILL CONTINUE FOR IT TO BE AS OLD AND COMPREHENSIVE AS POSSIBLE TO MEET THE SCALE AND SCOPE OF THE CRISIS TO MEET THE MOMENT, AND NOW IT IS UP TO CONGRESS TO LEGISLATE. AND THE AMERICAN RESCUE PLAN, MANY OF THOSE INVESTMENTS, INCLUDING THOSE DIRECT RELIEF PAYMENTS, WHAT I CALL SURVIVOR CHECKS, AND EXPANDED ELIGIBILITY OF PAYMENTS TO INCLUDE MIXED IMMIGRATION STATUS HOUSEHOLDS, ADULT DEPENDENTS, THE CHILD TAX CREDIT, WHICH WE ARE FIGHTING TO MAKE PERMANENT, THESE ARE MORE PROGRESSIVE PRIORITIES. JANET: LET’S TALK ABOUT IMMIGRATION. HOW’S HE DOING ON THE CRISIS ON THE SOUTHERN BORDER? WHAT SHOULD HE BE DOING THAT HE’S NOT? HE HAS RAISED THE LIMIT ON THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE COMING IN BUT WHAT ELSE DOES HE NEED TO DO? REP. PRESSLEY: I AM ENCOURAGED THAT HE HEATED OUR CALLS AND CRIES TO INCREASE THAT CAP AMOUNT. WE NEED TO BE REVERSING THE HEART AND HARM CAUSED BY THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION THE LAST FOUR YEARS. I WAS ENCOURAGED BY EARLY DECISIONS BY EXECUTIVE ACTION REVERSING HARMS WHEN IT COME TO IMMIGRANT RIGHTS, TO REPRODUCTIVE JUSTICE, TO CLIMATE JUSTICE, AND I AM GLAD HE WAS RESPONSIVE TO ACTIVISTS AND ADVOCATES AND PROGRESSIVES LIKE MYSELF WHO ENCOURAGED HIM TO DO AWAY WITH THE HURT CAUSED BY THE ADMINISTRATION OF TRUMP. HE CANNOT HAVE HOLDOVERS FROM THAT ADMINISTRATION AND THAT CAP NEEDED TO BE LIFTED. JANET: DO YOU THINK YOU WOULD HAVE DONE THAT IF YOU AND OTHER PROGRESSIVES HAD NOT PUSHED HIM? REP. PRESSLEY: I DO NOT KNOW. I NEVER STOP ORGANIZING OR MOBILIZING. I NEVER STOP PUSHING FOR MORE BECAUSE THE MASSACHUSETTS AVENUE, PEOPLE THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY HAVE BEEN EXPERIENCING LAYERED CRISES WITH THIS PANDEMIC, THE ECONOMIC HARDSHIP IT HAS ROCKED, ALL AGAINST THE BACKDROP OF A RECKONING ON A RACIAL INJUSTICE, SO WE HAVE TO GO BOLD TO ME THE MOMENT AND THE SCALE OF THESE THREE CRISES THAT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE HAVE EXPERIENCED. ED: LET’S TALK ABOUT THE WORLD DO WORK AND LIVE IN. THE U.S. CAPITOL POLICE REPORT SAYS THREATS AGAINST MEMBERS OF CONGRESS HAVE INCREASED 107% SINCE 2020. ARE YOU AND YOUR COLLEAGUES FEELING THIS DAY TODAY, FEELING THE PRESSURE AND, IN MY WORD, FEAR? REP. PRESSLEY: WELL, THOSE THREATS REALLY ARE NOT NEW FOR ME, CERTAINLY THERE IS A HEIGHTENED VULNERABILITY IN THE WAKE OF THE INSURRECTION AND THE POLARIZATION AND THE CRUELTY WE CONTINUE TO SEE PLAY OUT FROM SOME OF MY COLLEAGUES ACROSS THE AISLE. I WOULD NEVER HAVE ENVISIONED A TIME WHERE WE WOULD NEED TO ISSUE RESOLUTIONS SAYING THAT PEOPLE CANNOT BRING FIREARMS TO THE HOUSE FLOOR OR THAT WE WOULD NEED METAL DETECTORS FOR PEOPLE TO ENTER. THE THING IS, THE FACT THAT IT TOOK AN INSURRECTION AND ATTEMPT TO INTERRUPT THE PEACEFUL TRANSFER OF POWER IN THE RATIFYING OF THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE FOR A VIOLENT WHITE SUPREMACIST MOB TO SEIZE THE CAPITOL CAUSING TRAUMA AND INJURY, AND LOSS-OF-LIFE, FOR MANY TO APPRECIATE THE THREAT THAT WHITE SUPREMACY IS TO EVERY AMERICAN LIFE AND OUR DEMOCRACY IS TRAGIC. BUT WE ARE NOW IN THIS MOMENT, THERE IS A HEIGHTENED AWARENESS, AND I HOPE THAT MEANS LEGISLATIVELY THERE IS THE POLITICAL WILL AND COURAGE AND COMMITMENT TO ROOT OUT WHITE SUPREMACY AND ACTIVELY DISMANTLE SYSTEMIC AND STRUCTURAL RACISM, THE COUSIN OF WHITE SUPREMACY. I THINK PEOPLE SEE THE INSURRECTION OF JANUARY 6 AND SAY IT IS A VIAL AND THEY FEEL DISCONNECTED FROM THAT, AND THAT WOULD NEVER BE THEM AND THEY WILL NEVER BE COMPLIANT WITH SUCH A THING, BUT WE ARE COMPLICIT IN DISPARATE OUTCOMES THAT WE SEE LAID BA
