WASHINGTON, DC - JULY 31: Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO) speaks with supporters as she spends the night outside the U.S. Capitol to call for for an extension of the federal eviction moratorium on July 31, 2021 in Washington, DC.

Appearing on ABC's "This Week" on Sunday, Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg defended the president when asked whether the White House failed by letting the moratorium end."The president enthusiastically supports movement to extend this, but we're not waiting for that and haven't been," Buttigieg said. "There have been steps at every level using every lever available to this administration throughout, and will continue to be." headtopics.com

it seems all is not well in la la land. Be careful what you wish for...you might get it. It’s time to get your lazy bottoms up off the couch and work people. More proof that the Corporatist Wing of the Democratic party is fully in charge, why else go on a seven week vacation just after letting an eviction ban expire. It really seems the leadership is happy to keep loosing elections, it spares them the responsibly of governing.
Someone check and make sure this is reality because believe it or not..she's 100% right. Can't blame the other guys when you have many of the votes necessary to get things done yourselves. It's not a good look. Well I guess she is good for something. The Libs are so benevolent with other peoples $. Many of the home owners worked scraped and saved to buy properties. The progressives say screw them. Let our followers live rent free. That works in commie societies, should not work in the USA!
