CDC Director Rochelle Walensky, to whom a virus has granted powers outstripping the Constitution, has signed a new 60-day eviction moratorium that many legal scholars told President Biden is unconstitutional. Biden has decided to go ahead with it anyway until the courts slap it down.
In the eyes of a progressive, the landlord is evil because he’s rich and the tenant is good because they’re poor. So they’ll probably be glad to hear that landlords who break the “law” face a potential $100,000 fine and one year in jail, or, if the eviction results in death, a fine of $250,000.
The new 60-day CDC eviction moratorium carries steep criminal penalties for individual landlords who break the law:

That was our question.
Law? Which law?

Not a law. Not constitutional.

Lol this is illegal. What law would they be breaking?

It’s not a law.

What law are they breaking? CDC doesn't have the authority to impose this. It's insanity.

How the hell does CDC make laws?

I thought lawmaking was reserved for Congress.

The SCOTUS already told them they don't have the authority to do this… the CDC is in contempt of that ruling. They can't create a law… they aren't a body of Congress.

It’s not a law. The CDC has never been authorized to do this. The Federal Government has no power to do this under the Constitution. Also, SCOTUS has already ruled this illegal.

I'm guessing you can't name the law they'd be breaking, right?

No law to break, and every one of those fines will be overturned.

Never heard of the CDC passing laws

Which law exactly
— 1WMCSC (@1WMCSC) August 3, 2021
What law? Who passed it, and when?
— Paul (@pjb438) August 3, 2021
What law??? There was no legislation created to this pause.

The unelected clowns at a public health agency are rewriting property law again? On whose authority? Guess they missed the Supreme Court ruling.

Just give the deeds to the renters at this point

Legal scholars have told President Biden extending the eviction moratorium is unconstitutional, so he’ll do a new one until it gets shot down in court https://t.co/krptOkl4Mr
