Pelosi turns tables on Biden, asks for ‘immediate’ extension of eviction moratorium

A nationwide moratorium on evictions, which was implemented last year to help Americans who weren’t able to pay rent as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, expired over the weekend and House Democrats failed to vote on yet another extension.

According to Politico, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) hit the White House with a surprise jab on Sunday evening, issuing a statement in conjunction with a number of high-profile House Dems asking President Joe Biden to use his powers to extend the moratorium until mid-October. 

“On Thursday, the President asked Congress to pass an extension of the eviction moratorium.  Sadly, it is clear that the Senate is not able to do so, and any legislation in the House, therefore, will not be sufficient to extend the moratorium,” the statement read.

Pelosi added: “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.”

The request came just days after the Biden administration placed the burden on Congress to pass an extension on the controversial program, but failed to do so. The Biden administration cited a recent Supreme Court ruling as its reason for not having the power to extend the ban on evictions, which apparently many House Democrats believe isn’t accurate.

Members of the “Squad,” including Reps. Cori Bush (D-MO), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) also banded together over the weekend and demanded that the Biden administration take immediate action to extend the program, complete with a protest held at the U.S. Capitol building.

As the delta variant of COVID-19 continues to spike case counts across the country, potentially setting up America for yet another round of lockdowns and restrictions, Pelosi warned of the importance of providing extended relief to out-of-work Americans.

“Doing so is a moral imperative to keep people from being put out on the street which also contributes to the public health emergency,” Pelosi wrote.

According to data from June and July, some 7.4 million Americans have reported that they’re behind on rent payments, with another 3.6 million indicating that they’re “somewhat likely” or “very likely” to face eviction in the coming months.

I live in Texas now, and there are jobs all over the place! Employers are begging for help, but people do not want to work! Getting too much unemployment $$’s.

I get paid over $87 per hour working from home with 2 kids at home. I never thought I’d be able to do it but my best friend earns over 10k a month doing this and she convinced me to try. The potential with this is endless.

You got that right. Look at all the Dems have done to hurt our country and its people in such a short time. I don’t want to even imagine what 4 years of ths stupid administration will do. We have an emergency on our hands and someone or something has to do something NOW!

If the Democrats want to stop the evictions, then they should pay the rent and mortgages of those that did not. I know from es7xperance what it is when a renter will not pay and you can not get your property back. I had to let it ho into foreclosure because of this.

The money to do that was appropriated by Congress about a year ago. $47 Billion! Where is it? It has not gone to the people for whom it was intended.

It seems to me that our elected officials didn’t have a plan beyond giving them a moratorium from getting evicted. What about the landlords? How were they to pay there taxes and other expenses? This is what we have for a so called government. People have responsibilities as adults for certain things. Paying your mortgage, paying your rent, taxes etc. How are these people to come up with 18 months of back rent or what ever they owe as a result of these irresponsible decisions that are made with no reason? This is our government at work. We have people running our country that are totally clueless to the real world and how it works.

Things are getting so disgusting I believe that the only solution is to have what some say is coming, which is a full blown civil war!! The reason for eruption of civil war is to overcome the Orwellian regime we are facing. Let us fight to get rid of Biden,Harris,Pelosi,Schumer,AOC,Omar and all the rest of the and I QUOTE WHAT WAS SAID BY ONE OF THEIR OWN, the GLAMORUS DEMOCRATS!! This is how they look at themselves believe it or not! They are not that at all. They are horrible excuses for human beings and all they have done with all their”bright” ideas is bring down the U.S.A. Forget extention crap because it has been more then enough time for low life folks to find a job. No more give away money. With businesses begging for workers its time to end all this BULLSHIT!!!! Look out democrats and assholes,2022 is around the corner and 2024 will be here before you know it. Pray,Pray Republicans win!!!!

Anything Nancy is involved in sounds very suspicious and fishy to me. When and why has Nancy ever been concerned that people can’t pay their rent. There is more to this than meets the eye, and the idea that AOC and her gang are in on it too just raises the stakes. What’s going on here?

No one has the authority to require that people be provided lodging without paying the property owner what he is due for use of his property. Doing so is patently unconstitutional.

Need to stop the hand outs. There are jobs available all over. Maybe not the one you want but it will give an income to pay your bills until you can get the next job. Stop being so dependent on government to take care of you. It is a trap.

Freedom is not free. It’s important to elect people who know how to run the country. Close the borders until this virus is controlled. Companies has to stop increasing prices. Food prices are going up and people on fix incomes has to go without food and sometimes without medication. Government needs to get back to working for all the people in America.

Why don’t the LANDLORDS get any consideration, only the RENTERS? This is crazy and will have massive repercussions when everything shakes out. You’re talking hundreds of thousands of landlords throughout the country that will be irrevocably financially damaged. Most have never missed a payment until this Covid thing. THIS is a big part of what the Dem party wants! Long-term financial damage so we’ll have to run to them for help!

I have a friend that has 31 rental properties. No income for the last 15 months and the renters have no inclination to pay in the future. She still pays utilities, insurance, real estate taxes and has to do repairs when the tenant calls or she is reported to the County Departments. She is behind on her mortgages and the banks are calling for payments and her credit has been ruined because the banks report her as delinquent. An extension of the moratorium would probably bankrupt her. Where is the fairness in all this? Marine Bob

Why??????? People were able to pay rent before pandemic. When it hit people stopped working collect their unemployment PLUS the added 600 an then later the 300 making more money than they ever had weekly. Plus not paying childcare for those with kids a big saving. So why wasn’t their rent paid. Stop this. Stop the unemployment. There are jobs plenty of jobs. Stop !!!!!!!!!!

Pelosi: “Now listen joe, I want you to extend the rent moratorium. And I want you to do it now”!!
Joe: “Yes madaam president, what ever you say”.

If you had any question of who is running America, this is the proof that president Pelosi is.
We certainly aren’t hearing her command Joe to close the border because of the huge influx of illegals, and their carrying Covid 19, into our country. Nor running loose all over as they please.
Nor do we hear president Pelosi tell Joe to get everyone back to work, so they can afford their mortgage or rent payments.
Now we know who he has been meaning when he says to reporters, “I’m going to be in trouble”.
