Cori Bush Blasts Some Democrats For Abandoning Country

Representative Cori Bush, a Democrat, criticized members of her own party for breaking for a recess before moving to extend a federal moratorium on evictions.

“The eviction moratorium expires tonight at midnight. We could have extended it yesterday, but some Democrats went on vacation instead,” the Missouri congresswoman tweeted Saturday.

“We slept at the Capitol last night to ask them to come back and do their jobs. Today’s their last chance. We’re still here,” she added.

Democrats attempted on Friday to extend the ban on evictions, which has been in place as a protection for those who have been unable to pay rent during the coronavirus pandemic. But they ultimately failed to do so. The moratorium is slated to expire by the end of Saturday.

In a statement on Friday, Democratic leaders blamed House Republicans, who didn’t back a unanimous consent request to lengthen the moratorium.

“We are proud and pleased that, overwhelmingly, House Democrats have understood the hardship caused by rental evictions and support extending the eviction moratorium to October 18, 2021,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Majority Leader Steny Hoyer and Majority Whip James Clyburn said in a joint statement on Friday.

“Unfortunately, not a single Republican would support this measure,” they added.

In a statement to Newsweek, Bush called on House leadership “to call us back into session to pass an extension immediately” and said the Senate should take up a bill to extend the moratorium while it’s still in session.

“I’m calling on President Biden and the CDC to use their authority and extend it immediately. My point is some way, some how, we must find a way to protect people from violent evictions. This is a public health crisis and we must exhaust every option to save lives.” Bush said.

Other Progressives have criticized the Democratic leaders for breaking before successfully lengthening the moratorium. In a video she originally posted to her Instagram account on Friday, standing next to Bush in front of the Capitol building, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said an estimated seven million people are now at risk for eviction.

The Democrat from New York said that before lawmakers left on Friday, she and Bush started “literally running full clip to the House floor to try to demand a roll call vote on adjourning Congress.”

“To say ‘All right, if you want to leave you actually need to put your name against whether you wanted to leave wanted to stay. And so what they did was that there was a rush to adjourn before Cori and I could call the roll call vote,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

Fellow Progressive lawmakers, Reps. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, stayed at the Capitol with Bush on Friday night and into the morning on Saturday.

“We are here! So many people are at risk of homelessness in our district and many have already experienced it. We are out here for them,” Omar tweeted early Saturday morning.

  1. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my
    blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time
    and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.

    Please let me know if you run into anything.
    I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

  2. Hmm it looks like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I
    guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.

    I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing.
    Do you have any points for beginner blog writers? I’d certainly appreciate it.

  3. Its such as you read my thoughts! You appear to know
    a lot about this, like you wrote the guide in it or something.
    I think that you just could do with a few % to pressure the message house
    a little bit, but instead of that, that is fantastic blog.
    An excellent read. I will definitely be back.

  4. Awesome website you have here but I was curious about if
    you knew of any community forums that cover the same topics discussed in this article?

  5. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the page layout
    of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to
    say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it
    better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two
    pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

  10. This is very interesting, You are a very skilled blogger.
    I have joined your feed and look forward to seeking more of your wonderful post.
    Also, I’ve shared your site in my social networks!

  11. I have been browsing on-line more than 3 hours as of late, but
    I by no means discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours.
    It’s beautiful worth sufficient for me. Personally, if all website
    owners and bloggers made excellent content material as you probably did, the
    internet might be a lot more useful than ever before.

  12. When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now
    each time a comment is added I get four e-mails with
    the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from
    that service? Thanks a lot!

  13. Wow that was unusual. I just wrote an extremely long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t show up.
    Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again. Anyhow, just wanted to say excellent blog!

  14. Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for
    this website? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and
    I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point
    me in the direction of a good platform.

  15. Very great post. I simply stumbled upon your weblog and wanted to say that I’ve truly enjoyed browsing your blog posts.
    After all I’ll be subscribing in your feed and I am hoping you
    write once more soon!

  16. Admiring the commitment you put into your website and in depth information you provide.
    It’s great to come across a blog every once in a while that
    isn’t the same out of date rehashed information. Great read!
    I’ve saved your site and I’m including your RSS feeds to
    my Google account.

  17. My brother recommended I might like this website. He was once entirely right.
    This put up actually made my day. You cann’t believe simply how much time
    I had spent for this information! Thanks!

  18. It is the best time to make some plans for the future and it’s time to be happy.

    I have read this post and if I could I wish to suggest you some interesting things or advice.
    Maybe you could write next articles referring to this article.

    I wish to read even more things about it!

  19. Can I just say what a relief to find someone that truly
    knows what they’re discussing on the internet. You actually realize how to bring
    an issue to light and make it important. More people
    really need to look at this and understand
    this side of the story. I was surprised that you are not more popular because you surely have the gift.

  20. Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.

    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to
    go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

  21. Very nice post. I simply stumbled upon your blog and wanted to mention that I have
    truly enjoyed browsing your blog posts. In any case I’ll be subscribing
    in your rss feed and I hope you write again soon!

  22. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was
    wondering what all is required to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?

    I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% positive. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Kudos

  23. Hmm is anyone else experiencing problems with the images on this blog loading?
    I’m trying to figure out if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog.
    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

  24. Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything. However think
    about if you added some great visuals or videos to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this blog could undeniably be one of the
    greatest in its niche. Good blog!

  25. An intriguing discussion is definitely worth comment. I do believe that you should publish more on this issue, it may not be a taboo subject but usually people don’t discuss these issues. To the next! Best wishes!!

  26. Hi there! This is my first visit to your blog! We are a group of volunteers and starting a new
    project in a community in the same niche. Your blog provided us beneficial information to work on.
    You have done a wonderful job!

  27. I do accept as true with all of the concepts you’ve presented to your post.
    They are really convincing and will definitely work.

    Nonetheless, the posts are very quick for novices.
    Could you please lengthen them a little from
    next time? Thanks for the post.

  28. I have been browsing online more than 2 hours
    today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion,
    if all webmasters and bloggers made good content
    as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.

    ask. Does running a well-established blog such as yours take
    a massive amount work? I am brand new to running a blog however I do write
