On August 27, the Supreme Court dealt Biden a blow the likes of which he hadn’t seen in quite some time.
In his quest to hand out everything free he can to anybody he thinks might vote for him, Biden recently let the CDC introduce an eviction moratorium, which basically stated that landlords have absolutely ZERO authority over their tenants, even if the tenants aren’t making payments.
According to Biden’s people, if the tenants aren’t paying, that’s just loss for the landlords, and not the government’s problem.
But they were wrong. It IS a problem. A BIG problem in fact.
And that’s why the Supreme Court made the ruling they did, overturning the moratorium on the basis that it was “virtually certain” that landlords who sue the CDC for overstepping its authority would definitely win.
Here is what the court said:
Careful review of that record makes clear that the applicants are virtually certain to succeed on the merits of their argument that the CDC has exceeded its authority. It would be one thing if Congress had specifically authorized the action that the CDC has taken. 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. It strains credulity to believe that this statute grants the CDC the sweeping authority that it asserts.
