The very stupid thing that was the government-mandated lockdown in the name of the China Virus begat a lot of very stupid things.

One of them was the federal government moratorium on paying rents and mortgages.

Federal Eviction Moratoriums in Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic

Was the federal government doing this constitutional?  Heavens no.

The CDC’s Eviction Moratorium Is Unconstitutional

But eventually, all those backed-up rent and mortgage payments will be due.  And that’s when all heck will REALLY break loose.

And Leftists/bureaucrats LOVE all heck really breaking loose.  Because “Never let a crisis go to waste.”
