    How is a landlord going to meet his debt obligations without rental payments?  Bank takes over the property, are the tenants going to be better off???  Or will the bank evict everyone to repurpose the property into something that actually makes money?

    I'm all for building apartment facilities to house the people who can't afford housing, but if they engage in criminal activity or neglect to care for it, evict them. Ok, so, what do you propose for the ones who refuse to move in? We have homeless who prefer to live in a box and eat out of dumpsters, do drugs and steal.

    Free Housing was one of the guaranteed "rights" in the Soviet Union. Anyone remember which way their walls faced?

    Also black people living on the old Southern Plantations had free housing as a "right".

    If said "eviction moratorium" is made by the Federal government it IS unconstitutional.

    Art 1 sec 8. Try reading it.

    State laws, of course fall under the 10th amendment.

    Long overdue.  It's a right we should recognize.  We'll save money in the end.

    It's that sort of extension of the use of the meaning of the term "human rights" , that's brought "human rights" into so much disrepute .

    No where in the UN's charter for human rights, does it suggest that anyone has the right to expect that other people, house , clothe and feed them

    Absolutely. Seeing as it’s a right, I want to live at Sheryl Crow’s house. My right. Privacy is a spook.

    Good luck getting Conservatives on board. They are the "I got mine! Too bad for you" party.
