What do you think about this?
Insofar as COVID was ever a crisis, it is over now that most people have been vaccinated. The lockdowns are over. The government has sent out three stimulus checks and generous unemployment benefits. The eviction moratorium was understandable when cities and state governments were imposing lockdowns and driving people out of work through no fault of their own, but obviously this situation was temporary and was caused by a public health emergency which could not continue forever.
What did these people expect to happen? Were they planning on not paying their rent forever? I’m not a landlord so I can’t imagine what the last year has been like due to the eviction moratorium.
Note: Vox thinks that homeownership is the real problem.
