I wonder how many of them went homeless I. 2008, too. This country has got to quit voting for the loudest possible assholes and get its shiat together.

19 million facing eviction, 12 million about to lose their unemployment benefits

And the stock market will keep rising.

Income inequality at levels not seen since the 1890s has really farked this country up

How many of those voted for trump or any republican in the last election?

How many of the hundreds of House-passed bills now collecting dust on Moscow Mitch's desk would have addressed this?

I wonder what percentage of the 70 million Americans that voted for Trump are about to lose their homes just to stick it to the dirty libs.

You certainly owned me.

They've already lost their homes. They lost their jobs, their retirement, their life savings, everything. They lost it all decades ago. They have nothing left.

Except the stigginit.

This will be good for the economy. Now every large property-management company can convert their rental units to condominiums. Cash flow people! Won't someone think of the landlords for once?

Trae Crowder, "the Liberal Redneck," called it in the 2016 primary season: "These people will burn down their house so they can know the liberal next door will choke on the smoke for 15 minutes."

Lower housing prices?

FTA: Although the Trump Administration has restricted evictions for most households through the end of the year, it did not relieve renters of the need to pay rent. That means many renters may face a "payment cliff" at year's end, when they must pay several months' worth of back rent or face eviction.

This is the dumbest most cruel policy decision I've heard of during this pandemic.   When so many Americans can't afford to save for an unexpected expense, how are they going to be able to pay a $4,800.00+ ($800 x 6) rent charge?  Especially if they're unemployed?

Also, we are now at the highest numbers of infection rates since this pandemic began.  If the CDC placed a moratorium on evictions due to public health concerns, doesn't it make even more sense to extend the moratorium now?

Unless Biden is as good as he thinks he is dealing with McConnell, we as a nation are boned. McConnell was willing to sell out his country for the price of an aluminum plant.

I just keep praying they reinstate those PUA benefits before they expire. I read on CNN there was talk of making it somewhere around $400/week and retroactive to September which would CERTAINLY be a huge help to a lot of people but right now, I've got less than 6 weeks of $175/week coming in and I've barely been hanging on with that.

All of July was about passing another COVID relief package and then they went on the August recess and just completely stopped giving a fark that hundreds of thousands of people are dying and millions more are becoming poorer than they've ever been in their life. No one has savings anymore, we're all in debt, and no one's thrown so much as a god-damned life raft to us since July.

At least all those getting evicted can pride themselves in the fact that Democrats voted against the GOP bill too ...

I wonder how many people are going to care about those corporate liability shields as their shiat is getting tossed on the lawn.

No, it's a reality check. I know we all hate the GOP and know they are all scumbags, but is nothing truly better than something imperfect?

There are many of us who would rather have money for rent next month than have nothing because of some morality play based on trying to prevent corporate protectionism.

Possibly.  That's why I asked.  But it seems to me this person is faulting Dems for prioritizing corporate liability shield concerns over people getting evicted.  Is that the point?

Ok so I did read that right.  I don't think corporate protectionism is the one thing holding this up. Do you honestly think that?

I take them at their word ... the corporate liability protections and the fact it wasn't big enough prevented its passage.

I'm of the belief that something is better than nothing. So here we are, five some odd months later, with nothing passed at all.

I guess abject failure was better than being a "cheap date."

Hey, don't get mad at me. I'd prefer people don't get evicted and get the help they need - even if that means taking some temporary mud to the face.

If we don't take the Senate, there won't be any relief anyways, so you might as well start shopping a tent for Christmas.

I don't like it any more than you do, but I prefer to live in reality. Reality was there was a deal to be made in August and we didn't make that deal. It may have been the last hope we all had.

I'm fortunate in as much as I'm no immediate financial danger. I just think that giving up ones right to a safe work place shouldn't be forfeited to appease Moscow Mitch and his corporate cockstains.

In a just country Turtle-man would and rightfully in fear for his life for a stunt like this.
