Meanwhile anger is growing among Democrats as thousands of people face being kicked out their homes as rent becomes due at the first of the month.

Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez told Politico her fellow Democratic House members are 'cowards' who needed to come back into town and 'put their names next to a 'yes' or 'no' vote, or the White House needs to do a damn thing about [eviction moratoriums]. … At the end of the day, the emergency is here. And so we need to exercise all avenues.' 

And Democratic Rep. Cori Bush camped out on the Capitol steps for the third night in a row to protest the lack of action on the issue.

'Since Friday - when some colleagues chose early vacation over voting to prevent evictions - we've been at the Capitol. It's an eviction emergency. Our people need an eviction moratorium. Now,' Bush wrote on Twitter early Monday morning after spending her third night sleeping outside.
