Looks like Pelosi isn’t getting her way.
Calls continue to grow from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Ocasio-Cortez’s “The Squad” members for President Joe Biden to extend the federal eviction moratorium, which prevents landlords from evicting tenants who haven’t paid rent due to pandemic unemployment, and Biden isn’t listening.
According to Fox News, “Action is needed, and it must come from the Administration. That is why House leadership is calling on the Administration to immediately extend the moratorium,” Pelosi cried.
Adding, “As the CDC doubles down on mask-wearing and vaccination efforts, science and reason demand that they must also extend the moratorium in light of the delta variant.”
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued an eviction moratorium which stopped landlords from evicting tenants who haven’t paid but that ban ended over the weekend.
AOC attacked her own party and claimed that they didn’t care to do anything. “Everybody knew this was coming,” AOC said. “We were sounding the alarm about this issue. The court order was not yesterday, the court order was not Monday, the court order was about a month ago.”
Sorry AOC and Pelosi, it looks like Sleepy Joe doesn’t care.
