The Supreme Court already passed down a ruling on an important point.
But Democrats think they can ignore the top court in the land.
Nancy Pelosi asked Joe Biden to break the law with an insane proposal.
At the beginning of the pandemic, unelected bureaucrats at the CDC enacted a moratorium on evictions, so that landlords couldn’t evict tenants who failed to pay rent.
The CDC isn’t part of the legislative branch, whose job is to pass laws.
For this reason, theSupreme Court decided in its “official ruling” that all future extensions of the moratorium must be approved by Congress.
The Court gave Congress until July 31 to extend the moratorium.
However, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi failed to get the votes to extend the eviction moratorium, claiming that she only learned about the deadline at the last moment.
“The CDC has the power to extend the eviction moratorium. As they double down on masks, why wouldn’t they extend the moratorium in light of delta variant?” Pelosi tweeted Sunday.
Pelosi added in a joint statement with other Democratic leadership, released Sunday, that extending the eviction moratorium until Oct. 18, 2021 was a “moral imperative.”
“Action is needed, and it must come from the Administration,” the House Democrats said. “That is why House leadership is calling on the Administration to immediately extend the moratorium.”
Vaccines are available to anyone who wants one in America, there are millions of job openings and in many places even labor shortages.
There’s no logic to the extension that the Democrats are seeking so instead they rely on the vague COVID panic that they’ve been using unjustifiably for over a year.
“The virus is still a threat. The moratorium must be extended, and the funds Congress allocated to assist renters and landlords must be spent,” the Democrats continued. “An extension of the moratorium is based on public health and the delta variant. It will also give more time to allow the money that Congress allocated to finally flow.
“We call upon the Treasury Department to indicate how the funds that it has already transferred to states and communities can be more effectively distributed to renters and landlords,” they said.
The White House wasn’t happy with Pelosi’s comment.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki responded that theCDC could not lawfully extend the moratorium.
CDC officials, Psaki said, “have been unable to find legal authority for a new, targeted eviction moratorium,” and there is unlikely to be an “emergency extension,” per The Hill.
“Our team is redoubling efforts to identify all available legal authorities to provide necessary protections,” Psaki added. “In the meantime, the President will continue to do everything in his power to help renters from eviction.”
