The Supreme Court made a crucial decision that will affect the foreseeable future of our nation on Thursday. The CDC’s unconstitutional eviction moratorium has finally been ended. It was set to expire come October but now? It is over much sooner than some expected. Landlords and real estate groups have been putting a lot of pressure on the Supreme Court.
From the looks of it, all of their efforts have finally paid off. The Supreme Court ruled 6-3 along ideological lines. The CDC’s moratorium needs congressional authorization if it is going to continue but that does not seem likely to happen at the moment. The three liberal justices are the ones who voted against it.
They are using the excuse about the Delta variant to justify keep the moratorium going. CDC Director Rochelle Walensky decided to act independently and she was willing to sign the order without any congressional authorization. This decision has already come back to bite her. That’s what happens when you do not wish to play by the rules.
It is always going to backfire. No one has died and made Walensky the boss but that’s how she has decided to conduct herself. “This moratorium is the right thing to do to keep people in their homes and out of congregate settings where COVID-19 spreads,’ Walensky said at the time. “Such mass evictions and the attendant public health consequences would be very difficult to reverse.”
“This order will expire on October 3, 2021 and applies in United States counties experiencing substantial and high levels of community transmission levels of SARS-CoV-2,” according to a statement that was issued by the CDC. They also add that the moratorium “allows additional time for rent relief to reach renters and to further increase vaccination rates.”
The Supreme Court was clearly not pleased with the CDC and they let it show with their ruling. It is nice to see common sense prevailing but we are sad that it had to take this long. “It would be one thing if Congress had specifically authorized the action that the CDC has taken,” the Supreme Court ruling reads. “But that has not happened. Instead, the CDC has imposed a nationwide moratorium on evictions in reliance on a decades-old statute that authorizes it to implement measures like fumigation and pest extermination.”
The Supreme Court is never going to take kindly to this type of behavior from any organization, let alone the CDC. That was not all that they had to say, as they threw one last parting shot at the CDC. “It strains credulity to believe that this statute grants the CDC the sweeping authority that it asserts,” the Supreme Court continued. Joe Biden was also closely involved here because of course he was.
He does not care about having the proper authority to pull any of the crap that he pulls, either. That’s why him and Walenksy are a match made in heaven. They can both tell each other that it is great to break the rules. When you are surrounded by yes men, all of your ideas are going to seem like great ones.
The president told us directly that he knew he was in direct violation of the Constitution and he could not care less. That’s all he had to say on the matter and it is a telling statement to say the least. Biden does not believe that the law should be followed anymore, as long as he can work around it to satisfy his own selfish ends.
Biden’s agendas must be pushed through, regardless of whether anyone thinks that they are a good idea. He thinks that he is a king, when he is a president. That’s what happens when you bully your way through an election without actually winning it outright. He’s been emboldened and the CDC made the mistake of getting high off his secondhand smoke. Oh well, Walensky!
