Politico actually had this story a couple of weeks ago about the Biden administration extending the COVID-19 public health emergency for another three months. The story must be true because now Axios is reporting that the Biden administration is likely to extend the COVID public health emergency through the midterm elections in November. We all expected there to be a “midterm variant” of COVID, and it seems this is it.
The Biden admin appears headed toward extending the COVID public health emergency for another 3 months past the current Oct. 13 deadline.
That would allow special powers and programs to continue past the midterm election.

There are property owners in LA still not collecting rent. This is nuts.

Didn’t the CDC just call the whole thing off? 🤷🏻♀️

It’s too dangerous to vote in person

Translation: adults, many of whom vote, will not be forced to pay their student loans until *after* the midterms.

That’s a good point.
That’s odd. Usually, when a centralized government consolidates power under an emergency they relinquish it once the emergency conditions pass. Oh well, I’m sure they know what’s best.
