Nancy Pelosi-Led House Adjourns for Recess without Passing Bill to Extend Federal Eviction Ban

House Democratic leaders failed to round up enough votes on Friday to pass legislation extending the federal ban on evictions just two days before it is set to expire, ultimately adjourning the chamber for a long summer recess with no path forward on the issue. After hours of inactivity on the House floor as Democratic leaders worked to corral support for legislative action, Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) tried to pass a bill by unanimous consent that would have renewed the moratorium through Oct. 18, but Republicans objected. 

Wonder how that ‘lesser of two evils’ thing is going for liberals and Trump-haters so far?
