The Supreme Court didn't do squat,
There is something called rule of law,

the supreme's had already told the CDC it couldn't do this & they ignored them

If a bank robber steals money from your account, & the cops say he has to return it,

Did you steal the money, or the robber?
#CDC #supremecourt #us #politics #EvictionMoratorium
CDC never had authority to tell the entire federal, state & local governments they couldn't enforce basic property rights law,

crazy-town to believe CDC somehow could make up laws willy-nilly that even congress could never make cuz it would be too crazy & unconstitutional to do

I’ve been evicted before. It was March 2014. Slept on a friends couch for months. I couldn’t find a place to stay.

Every apartment asked if there was an eviction on my record. My applications were denied. I lost money on the application fees. #EvictionCrisis
I was 24 years old. I worked full time as a pharmacy tech and no place to live. After months of going thru the cycle of applying for an apartment and getting denied, I finally got approved for a place.

It was horrible. Roaches, mice, mold but they were the only complex that would take folks with eviction on their records.

Slum lords. I was so depressed.

After 4 months, I left. They filed an eviction. So that made 2 on my record #evictioncrisis

I’m in Rockville this morning observing Landlord-Tenant Court - Failure to Pay Rent cases. More updates to come. #HousingJustice #evictioncrisis
It was a heartbreaking day in Rent Court, and I have many thoughts to share. First, a reminder that current federal and state protections are set to expire in the coming weeks. These protections were the ONLY thing that kept countless families from being evicted today.
With fed & state eviction protections set to expire soon, a reminder that my legislation to keep protection policies in place sat in the state senate for 3 weeks before running out of time ahead a final vote on Sine Die. The state could have and should have stepped up. #forshame
