As the eviction ban expired, the House of Representatives departed for a 6 Week paid vacation. The Senate too will soon depart for their paid Summer vacation.
The object of this post is not to express my approval or objection to the ban on evictions during this “epidemic”. It is instead, to point out the total disconnect of the “ruling” class from the “ruled” class. Make no mistake, that is exactly how they see themselves and how they see us. I might point this out, not all of the ruling class are elected.
As the “ruling class” depart on yet another paid vacation, they call it a recess, not a single one of the rulers is facing eviction from their residence. In some cases none of them are facing eviction from the multiple residences they own. Nor are any of the monied elite who shovel money their way for their campaign “war chests”. You can bet your bottom dollar, if you have one, that Congress would have acted if they were facing eviction or had an effect on the contributions from the monied elite.
Now, do you see the lie in all of this? Especially the lie, We are all in this Together. Not a single one of the ruling class suffered the pain that the ruled class suffered during the “pandemic”. No my friends, the pain and suffering was strictly reserved for the ruled class.
This moratorium on evictions was courtesy of the CDC, not Congress. After several extensions the Court ruled there would be no further extensions without Congressional action. Congress failed to act and the moratorium ended last night at Midnight. The House offered many excuses for this failure. The excuses offered were almost laughable. They say they did not have enough time. The fact is that they had plenty of time, the Court did not say no more extensions without Congressional action at 11:59 PM last night. They made that decision in late June. They chose not to act. Another excuse offered was that lawmakers were blindsided by the Presidents inaction. The Court did say no further extensions without Congressional action, they did not say without action by the President, or the CDC. They specified Congressional action.
When it comes to not having enough time, why is that excuse not offered when they appear before the camera. They seem to have plenty of time for finding a camera to get in front of or posting on their social media accounts.
