Cori Bush says after her protest sleeping outside the capitol “This morning felt cold, like the wind was blowing straight through my sleeping bag.”

After sleeping outside the capitol in protest of the end of the eviction moratorium, progressive Democrat Rep. Cori Bush tweeted:

5 AM. This morning felt cold, like the wind was blowing straight through my sleeping bag.

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.

She wrote earlier:

Last night, we stood on the steps of the Capitol in a moment of silence for all the people who are unhoused whose lives have been taken because of policy violence.

For all of those whose lives will be at risk until the eviction moratorium is extended.

We need to save lives.
