The left is outstanding with section 8 government housing and even champions it as a way of life, but when it comes to private property rentals, they feel like the owner shouldn’t have any rights, which shows you they want government control in all aspects of life.
The government has been providing rental assistance for a long time. They do this to give people a roof over their heads and a way to further themselves in society, but sometimes it goes astray. Generational poverty can be attributed to government assistance, and many data points prove that the case.
The government does not have the jurisdiction to order private property owners to rent their dwellings for free, as the Supreme Court recently demonstrated. The Supreme Court ruled that the Eviction Moratorium was unconstitutional, and especially the Center for Disease Control (CDC) had no jurisdictional authority to put the Eviction Moratorium in place. Justice Brett Kavanagh said, “I agree with the District Court and the applicants that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention exceeded its existing statutory authority by issuing a nationwide eviction moratorium.”
One more step toward justice and constitutionality in the United States!
The Eviction Moratorium came when states shut down private businesses and halted citizen’s ability to make a paycheck and was understandable at first. Still, when that ran out, the CDC extended the Eviction Moratorium under the Biden administration. Keep in mind that while the Eviction Moratorium was taking place, citizens who lost their job or were unable to work collected unemployment benefits to a tune of $950 a week, which many have claimed to be well above the amount people were making at their jobs.
Kavanagh said that Congress would have to rule on it and continue it, and they haven’t done that yet.
Another critical aspect of the Eviction Moratorium is that governors haven’t distributed money to property owners, although the federal government allocated the money for each state. According to the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, authorizing an extension would weaken the separation of powers and property rights, giving the CDC a near-dictatorial regime. It sets a dangerous precedent for the future of viral outbreaks and health concerns. Notice the CDC isn’t suggesting you live a healthier life. Only the vaccine works.
The psychological effect where someone can refuse to pay rent, but buy brand new cars, which happened in many scenarios, is maddening. I can’t imagine a world where personal responsibility was placed under government coddling in our society, and you see it in the justice system. Criminals who appear before judges once a month are treated differently than those who have never appeared before the judge. They receive harsher punishments than a repeat offender who is unconcerned about the law.
Biden is getting used to throwing responsible people to the curb, but so are all Democrats. They genuinely believe that everyone should be brought out of their own decisions by the government.
