Who to blame for upcoming evictions, renters, landlords, voters, Government managers, or God?
The Chicago Tribune Op-Ed titled: Eviction Moratorium deserves Heave Ho, contained the writers opinion:
“Biden said he wanted an extension to be approved by Congress, as the court requires. But that wouldn’t fix the fundamental injustice of compelling private property owners to provide free housing.”

Again, I looked and saw all the oppression that was taking place under the sun: I saw the tears of the oppressed— and they have no comforter; power was on the side of their oppressors— and they have no comforter. (Ecclesiastes 4:1-3)
What’s My Point?
The pandemic certainly can be blamed for the reason why the renters were unable to work to pay their rent but that provides no compensation for the landlords.
Government provided funds of 47 billion for relief of renters and landlords. However, the article explains government only used 12 percent of the funds because of government inability to process claims.
Since both the renters and landlords have been oppressed by the lack of ability of government, the logical conclusion is government managers, or should Congress be blamed for the upcoming evictions.
In other words, the “oppression” about to take place “under the sun” in the USA belongs to Congress.
In My Opinion,
Since voters voted are responsible for their selection of Congress to manage the crisis, and since blaming the pandemic is a fruitless endeavor. Voters are essentially to blame for making a choice of Congressional leaders to manage the affairs in government.
In my opinion, a far simpler way to have distributed the emergency fund would have been to freeze banks from pressing mortgages of landlords who had renters unable to pay rent. Banks are more efficient on managing money than government based on the fact that Government has accumulate a National Debt of 28 trillion which is evidence of Congress inability to manage money.
The article explained the Biden agrees that: “President Biden in June, a decision by the Supreme Court blocked any extension beyond July 31 without legislation. President Joe Biden has chosen to respect the ruling.”
In my opinion, we will soon experience knowing how the powerful Congress will manage the upcoming “oppression.”
Will Congress act before their upcoming August monthlong break?
If so, should voters vote in 2022 to elect better managers to represent the “oppressed” renters, landlords, and taxpayers,
Will the present homelessness statistics rise in the near future or will Congress just ignore enforcing the eviction laws same as the present Congress ignores enforcing other laws as evidenced by the present Congress management now in power?
Will Congress legislators when running for reelection in 2022 do the same thing as the Governor of Illinois did back in May 2020 and blame God as explained in a previous post on this issue to “comfort” voters to vote for them again?
