The White House is calling on Congress to extend the moratorium on evictions that is set to expire on Saturday.
Last month, a Supreme Court order permitted the moratorium to continue until the end of July. In his opinion, Justice Brett Kavanaugh wrote that “the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention exceeded its existing statutory authority by issuing a nationwide eviction moratorium.”
“Because the CDC plans to end the moratorium in only a few weeks, on July 31, and because those few weeks will allow for additional and more orderly distribution of the congressionally appropriated rental assistance funds, I vote at this time to deny the application to vacate the District Court’s stay of its order,” he added.
He noted that “clear and specific congressional authorization (via new legislation) would be necessary for the CDC to extend the moratorium past July 31.”
“Given the recent spread of the delta variant, including among those Americans both most likely to face evictions and lacking vaccinations, President Biden would have strongly supported a decision by the CDC to further extend this eviction moratorium to protect renters at this moment of heightened vulnerability,” White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said in a statement, per The Hill.

The CDC never planned that. Sheesh.
Good Lord! At what point does this insanity end? Time to start evicting the dead beats.
These moratoriums have always violated the constitutional rights against the seizure of personal property. If you happen to live in one of the states where they are doing this then it is happening regardless of what happens at the federal level. Imagine that some landlords have not received rent in a year and a half. Some of those landlord only have one or two rentals. Those landlords have been totally destroyed. The government picks a certain group of people and says they get to be ruined. What could be any more evil or unconstitutional than that? Every official involved in this... All of their property and finances should be confiscated and given to the landlords whose lives have been ruined.
Also imagine that the government controls your property. A Tenant lives there for free. But you are responsible for all expenses regarding that property including maintenance of all kinds. You are also liable for anything that happens on that property. That is evil.
I like your idea on helping the landlords out......
