Progressives in the Democrat Party are not going to be happy that the rent honeymoon in New York is about to be over.
On Thursday, the Supreme Court blocked part of the New York state eviction moratorium order.
Democrats and progressives have been railing about this specific issue, even holding a recent protest on the steps of the Capitol, hoping to force Pelosi to resume Congress to craft legislation for more relief.
This is a difficult issue in that most Americans do not want to see people tossed on the street, but there is a flip side to this story.
Landlords have been forced to sit on the sidelines for months, making no money, while renters remain in their properties.
These landlords still have expenses to pay, such as property taxes and insurance, and many of them have no money coming in because of the moratorium.
This was a mess created by the initial COVID relief, as even though there was a moratorium in place, back-rent was piling up on these individuals.
Many believed the government (read: taxpayers) would end up getting hit with this bill, so their extra unemployment and bonus COVID checks were spent elsewhere.
Now, many of these renters are months in arrears with no way to pay the back rent, facing eviction from their homes.
Meanwhile, all these landlords are not only facing the problem of having to evict these individuals, but they are still out months of rental income as well.
This is truly a lose-lose situation for everyone involved, but it will ultimately have to be owned by Democrats.
