The Biden administration will put in place a new 60-day eviction moratorium that would protect areas where 90% of the U.S. population lives. President Joe Biden stopped short of making the announcement Tuesday during a press conference at the White House. The new moratorium would protect areas heavily impacted by the coronavirus, which is most of the country, according to three people familiar with the plans who insisted on anonymity to discuss the forthcoming announcement. The turnaround helps heal a rift with liberal Democratic lawmakers who were calling on executive action to keep renters in their homes after a prior moratorium lapsed at the end of July.
Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh already indicated upon extending the original moratorium in the past that it was unconstitutional, and that Congress needed to act and pass legislation for it to continue in the future.
Unfortunately Congress, who has the lowest approval rating among government entities, is busy trying to spend BILLIONS on infrastructure, climate change, and social justice. Instead of solving the problem, it is easier to kick the can on down the road.
So what happens next?
If there is a moratorium for the next three or four months, that takes us to November or December. Does anyone really think that government is going to evict potentially millions in winter, and before Christmas?
Looks like it is free rent for everyone, FOREVER!
