Pelosi and her leadership team have urged Biden to immediately renew and extend the eviction moratorium until Oct. 18 after House Democrats failed to marshal the votes to prevent its lapse this weekend

The lapse of the moratorium this weekend meant millions of tenants around the country faced the risk of losing their homes.

putting the ball back in the Biden administration’s court, after the White House on Thursday said it could not extend the eviction ban and urged Congress to do it.“It is clear that the Senate is not able to [extend the ban], and any legislation in the House, therefore, will not be sufficient,” the senior Democrats said. “Action is needed, and it must come from the administration."

The statement from House leadership marked the latest escalation of tensions between congressional Democrats and the Biden administration over the fate of the eviction moratorium, which ended Saturday after being first implemented by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in September.

Progressive lawmakers including Reps. Cori Bush (D-Mo.), Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) also urged Biden to maintain the ban in a letter this weekend and staged a protest at the Capitol.The White House announced Thursday that it would let the ban lapse because the Supreme Court indicated in late June that legislation would be necessary to extend it a fifth time.

Biden’s call for Congress to step in set off a two-day scramble in the House. More than a dozen House Democrats opposed a plan to extend the moratorium, which was challenged by landlords who warned it cost them billions of dollars each month.Pelosi and her team said Sunday night that 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."

“Doing so is a moral imperative to keep people from being put out on the street which also contributes to the public health emergency," they said.The senior Democrats requested that the Treasury Department shed light on how state and local governments could more efficiently deliver the $46.5 billion in rental assistance Congress has authorized since December. As of the end of June, only 6.5 percent of the funds had been disbursed.

Wow, everyone seems to be passing the buck here. SCOTUS did NOT say that legislation was necessary (Kavanaugh said it in a non-binding concurring opinion, and that's it) -- but Pelosi made no effort to get a bill passed, let alone use her pull to pass it. 😒😒😒 This is great, 'Let's extended the eviction thing' nothing like waiting until the last minute to pretend that they care. They shut the country down and they had how long to figure out a solution for this mess? Nothing like failing a test because I didn't study 4 it 🤦🤣🤣🤣

GOP love to see rampant homelessness to prove Biden a failure. Time to end filibuster How could the leaders be too heartless? Is it a political issue only and not social and economic? Let the politicians realize that the citizens belong to the nation. Do they love the nation? Protect their interests. Don't be cruel.

Kevin McCarthy Makes Creepy Joke About Hitting Pelosi If He's Ever Speaker Of The House“I want you to watch Nancy Pelosi hand me that gavel. It will be hard not to hit her with it, but I will bang it down,” he told laughing GOP donors. Abuser. Nancy would shove that gavel up his keister ! She is a tough old girl 🤔 Does he have these kind of thoughts often?

Get a fucking job!!! Why won’t anyone understand we the tax payers have to pay for this!!! She knows or should that SCOTUS has already ruled the entire moratorium was unconstitutional? Not a word from Republicans. Ready to throw 5 million to the street. Never forget their motivation is all for the one percent.

Good for Pelosi, at least someone (woman) is trying to do what's right. What happened to monthly stimulus checks like the rest of the free world. Um how about HouseGOP left early to break quorum. Thx. Try again They control the house and senate and didnt pass anything She's 3rd in line for the presidency and gave no effort to stop it. She could have done much more.

China has a larger standing army than America so we have to play the nuclear card.
