What has the ‘Squad’ coalition of Democrats ever accomplished in their multiple years as elected lawmakers? Besides pulling publicity stunts, making asinine social media posts, and being generally off-putting, these Radical women have done little to forward the causes they claim to champion.
This weekend was no different.
To protest the end of a federal pandemic eviction moratorium, members of the ‘Squad’ protested outside of the Capitol Building, essentially camping out to prove their point. However, none of them must’ve considered the fact that they ARE high-ranking members of the federal government whose only responsibility is to represent their home districts and pass laws.
Not only legislative attempt to extend the eviction moratorium was made by any member of the Squad.
Reps. Cori Bush, Ilhan Omar, and Ayanna Pressley have remained outside the Capitol to protest the end of the eviction moratorium, which expired at midnight on Aug. 1.
It’s 2 AM on Sunday. We haven’t slept since Thursday night. The eviction moratorium expired, so we’re now in an eviction emergency. 11 million are now at risk of losing their homes at any moment.
The House needs to reconvene and put an end to this crisis.

Despite being House members themselves, the Far-Left trio hoped to sway the House, Senate, and Joe Biden himself to reconvene and extend the moratorium.
The #EvictionMoratorium expires at midnight. All options must be on the table.
My colleagues & I just sent an urgent letter to @POTUS & @CDCgov calling on them to act unilaterally.
We’re still pushing the House to reconvene & for the Senate to act.
We must move with urgency. pic.twitter.com/oJNYMe379j

On Thursday, three days before the moratorium was set to expire, the White House did call on Congress to extend the eviction moratorium, but no action ever occurred.
After the freeze expired, leading ‘Squad’ member AOC surprisingly didn’t pass blame on the Republicans, instead blaming “conservative Democrats” for failing to act.
“We cannot in good faith blame the Republican Party when House Democrats have the majority. This court order came down on the White House a month ago, and the White House waited until the day before the House adjourned to release a statement asking Congress to extend the moratorium.”
The House adjourned for a six-week recess on Friday without gathering the votes to extend the moratorium to Oct. 18.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi has not signaled plans to reconvene over the eviction moratorium.
