Andy Richter Accidentally Makes Argument Against Eviction Moratorium, Gets Schooled Big Time

CASEY RODGERS

It’s a funny thing that liberals often don’t understand the consequences of the positions they hold. Not even when those consequences come up and smack them right in the face.

Case in point — Andy Richter, known for being the sidekick on Conan O’Brien’s show.

Does he even understand why this might be? He clearly doesn’t. Why might a landlord want to have six months up front when Biden and the CDC can unconstitutionally declare an eviction moratorium so people who don’t pay rent can’t get evicted? Gee, I don’t know why. But clearly Richter didn’t understand it and just wanted to lay it at the feet of the mean greedy landlords that the government has stripped of their property rights. He doesn’t get that failed liberal ideas have harmful consequences that are now hitting him. But while he might have the money to adapt, not everyone can. That’s the result of this bad unconstitutional action.

Take it up with Biden and the Democrats who created the issue, the very people he likely voted for. He just laid out one more problem with the eviction moratorium, in addition to it being unconstitutional, so good job there, Andy!

Richter got schooled big time with a little reality.

Richter did confess to supporting “rent moratoriums” (he later corrected it to eviction moratorium). But instead of having a logical discussion on it, he deflected, making a ridiculous pro-vaccine/pro-mask argument.

Now the funny thing is that Richter may yet get a place for his son because of the decision yesterday by the Supreme Court ruling 6-3 to vacate the stay on the District Court’s decision against the eviction moratorium. Doubtless he wouldn’t understand why the Supreme Court, which he likely believes is evil and Conservative, actually is helping him, other renters, and the landlords by finding against the CDC’s illegal actions.

The Court noted that if you allowed this line of thought, you were basically giving the CDC unprecedented power over virtually anything.

Could the CDC, for example, mandate free grocery delivery to the homes of the sick or vulnerable? Require manufacturers to provide free computers to enable people to work from home? Order telecommunications companies to provide free high-speed Internet service to facilitate remote work?

Exactly. It goes beyond just this issue into a much broader and more dangerous power grab if allowed. Fortunately the Supreme Court scotched that.
