“This is simply not the America we signed up for.”
The CDC’s blatantly unconstitutional extension of the eviction moratorium, approved by the Biden administration, and cheered by the Squad wing of the Democrat party, is nothing more than government sanctioned theft.
Landlords across the country, many of whom have not received rent payments for months, are being told to just accept this, with no consideration for their needs.
A woman who came to America at 18 and now owns rental property in Pittsburgh, appeared on FOX News this week and explained the impact this has had on her.

Immigrant landlord slams eviction moratorium for destroying small businesses
JEN SIDOROVA: You know, what I hear is that a lot of people just going out of business, exactly as you said, or maybe they’re switching to the model that’s more like a vacation rental, a short-term rental other than long-term. What it’s really doing is that’s pushing young people or vulnerable people, who we might normally give a break and give them a chance, we simply can’t do this anymore because we cannot run the risk of having somebody living in our property for free and us having to pay mortgage and utilities and keeping it up. It’s just impossible for somebody who only has maybe two or three units…
They made landlords villains. But honestly, I am an immigrant. I moved to this country when I was 18. I worked every day. I paid my taxes. It’s been like 15 years since I was able to afford a property and now it’s my time to build some generational wealth and invest, and the government is taking it right out of my hands. They’re robbing me out of my American dream. Honestly, I feel like I speak on behalf of all the hard-working immigrants in this country. This is simply not the America we signed up for.

There are reportedly billions in unused funds to pay these landlords, but can you imagine the nightmare of trying to claim them?
One of the most amazing aspects of the extension, is that Biden knows it doesn’t pass the smell test.
Under intense pressure from liberal Democratic lawmakers and activists, Biden announced Tuesday that a revamped version of the eviction ban that expired on July 31 would be reimposed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as a pandemic mitigation measure. His reversal came after senior administration officials had said for a week that such a move would be fruitless and perhaps unlawful as a result of a Supreme Court ruling in June.
One striking part of Biden’s announcement was his candor that the policy might well be illegal.
“The bulk of the constitutional scholarship says that it’s not likely to pass constitutional muster,” the president told reporters, before adding: “But there are several key scholars who think that it may and it’s worth the effort.”
Biden did this at the behest of Cori Bush, AOC, and progressive journalists on Twitter.
That’s who has power over him, and he will literally rob innocent Americans to placate them.
