The anger comes on top of the left’s frustration with a bipartisan infrastructure deal.
“The administration’s statement that they will be taking action to find legal authority by the CDC or other authorities to extend the moratorium is welcome,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi said. She’s right. If they leave any stone unturned, you’ll read it here. https://t.co/3imBXiIyKw
Jayapal indicates that Biden has yet to meet with the Progressive Caucus, at all, since entering office. https://t.co/rbwOCvTAp4 https://t.co/5ow6MvNRlp
Once again democrats let “teh rulez” preempt them from even *trying* to do the right thing. If Biden put in a moratorium that was eventually ruled against, no foul and you would actually be trying to do the right thing. https://t.co/ZxbFJPxq5q
NEW: Liberals erupt in fury at WH over end of eviction moratorium. Deets on an expletive-laden videoconference call, the impromptu meeting between VP Harris and Rep. Bush, and what it all means for a fragile alliance: W/@MariannaReports @tylerpager https://t.co/WqCwdRV3Y4
Liberals erupt in fury at White House over end of eviction moratorium, @WaPoSean @MariannaReports + @tylerpager report https://t.co/tc7CycSg9c
“It’s too little too late,” said Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.), chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus. “The White House did not handle this well. I think they did not think about this eviction moratorium in a serious way.” https://t.co/WqCwdRV3Y4
In a hastily called, expletive-laden video call with nearly two dozen liberal lawmakers, members railed against the White House and House Democratic leaders over lapsed eviction protection. @WaPoSean @MariannaReports @tylerpager https://t.co/yOVo90hJRe
Three people wrote this story for @washingtonpost and not one spoke to anyone who studies evictions, could quantify the problem, or who faces eviction. It’s all inside-DC politics. Truly shameful journalism. https://t.co/8IcQS3Wuc0
Current Status is the consensus view of the current top U.S. political stories from a cross-section of the news media ecosystem.
There are three components that determine the Current Status: First, there is an editorially-responsible algorithm that considers the signals news editors send about a story's news value. Second, there's a human-in-the-loop curating the list and providing oversight to ensure that the Current Status is a fair and accurate representation of the day's essential political stories. And third, Current Status is biased toward recent, highly-cited stories, with an emphasis on depth and accuracy. The stars are a reflection of a story's current relative news value.
This is what the political web is talking about right now.
