On Tuesday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced a new eviction moratorium.
Here’s the problem… this is an issue that was already decided upon by the Supreme Court, calling it a congressional matter, not something that can be addressed directly by a sitting president or administrative agency.
Joe Biden knows this, and he admitted as much, yet he allowed the order to go through anyway.
Laws Don’t Apply
The bottom line here is that Joe Biden did this to buy time when it should have been addressed by Congress.
The July 31 deadline on the moratorium was obviously in place, but Democrats are too busy going after Trump and trying to actually do their jobs.
Let’s also not forget, this was a problem created by politicians when they gave everyone the belief that the government was going to use our tax dollars to bail everyone out on back rent.
In reality, with all the free money the government was handing out, people should not even be behind on rent, but that is another conversation.
To this point, the Supreme Court has already issued a ruling that Biden does not have the power to create such a rule and he even said so several days ago. He even put the ball in Congress’ court to take care of it, citing the Supreme Court ruling.
Biden again said as much when the order was issued, stating, “I’ve sought out constitutional scholars to determine, what is the best possibility that would come from executive action or the CDC’s judgment? What could they do that is most likely to pass muster, constitutionally?
“The bulk of the constitutional scholarship says it’s not likely to pass constitutional muster … But there are several key scholars who think that it may, and it’s worth the effort.”
Basically, Joe Biden issued an order that he knows is both illegal and unconstitutional.
That, my friends, is a violation of the oath that he took on January 20, 2021.
Perhaps Joe can check with those same constitutional experts to see if this offense is worthy of impeachment.
