The Supreme Court Says You Have To Pay Rent, Even If You Can’t
Remember last year when the historic pandemic put tons of people out of work and countless businesses had to shut down?
Because of it, thousands of people lost their jobs and weren’t able to pay rent.
Yes, the government provided aid so tenants wouldn’t have to pay rent until things got better.
But now that businesses have bounced back, the Supreme Court is saying residents need to pay rent or face eviction.
Last night, the Supreme Court ended protection for roughly 3.5 million people who are facing eviction in the next few months.
KWTX reports that the conservative majority of the Supreme Court is allowing evictions to resume across America. The more liberal leaning justices of the Supreme Court argued that the increase of COVID-19 cases is the reason the moratorium should stay in place
Justice Stephen Breyer wrote on behalf of the liberal justices, "“The public interest strongly favors respecting the CDC’s judgment at this moment, when over 90% of counties are experiencing high transmission rates."
The Supreme Court says "if a federally imposed eviction moratorium is to continue that Congress must authorize it".
In my opinion, this is a no-brainer if people can’t pay rent because of their lack of employment or a situation that the pandemic has put them in.
Why can't we understand that nobody’s trying to obtain a free ride? If people genuinely can't pay rent, they shouldn't be penalized!
