rent, mortgage payments during pandemic

Original Article

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) on Thursday introduced for the second time a bill that would guarantee full payment forgiveness on rent and home mortgage payments throughout the coronavirus pandemic. Under the bill, titled the Rent and Mortgage Cancellation Act, there would be no accumulation of debt for renters or homeowners, as well as no negative impact on a person’s credit rating or rental history. The legislation also calls on the Department of Housing and Urban Development to establish and oversee a “Landlord Relief Fund,” to cover any losses landlords would receive as a result of the payment cancellations.

I'm okay with this as long as Omar pays the rent and mortgage in question with her own resources. Trouble is, she views our personal money as hers to spend as she sees fit. We're just holding it for her convenience...

She knows this isn't going to pass. But it appeases the brain-dead lie-beral voters -- who long ago discovered that it was so much easier to vote for a living than it was to work for a living!!!

So people who are making more on unemployment than they made working, probably get food stamps because they are unemployed, Now they also get to live in free housing. Don't forget those stimulus checks. Maybe we should give everyone a car and tropical vacation so they can recover from their tough year of getting to live for free off of you and me.

Why should people have to pay for food and healthcare during a pandemic? Why should they have to pay for kids, or education during a pandemic? It's outrageous people have to pay during a pandemic. Get the money from Bill Gates.

Republicans should get on board with this, and make it happen. The Democrats are simply looking to use this issue in the 2022 election, and blame Republicans. Don't wipe out that amount owed, but make it a tax deduction, spread over 3 years, for the landlord. But, this will likely be a "benefit" to the person who owed the rent per the IRS, and taxable. Again, spread it over 3 years. Then, at least triple SALT while you're at it.

I believe a good case can be made that allowing these tenants to not pay their rents are "takings" by regulation, and that each government should be responsible to pay the unpaid rents caused by that government's eviction moratorium. However, as the various takings are a patchwork of (mostly state or municipal ?) moratoriums, the only practical means to reimburse these landlords for their lost rental income will be from the federal government. It should not be viewed as bailing out landlords; it should be viewed as reimbursing landlords that have their property taken by government interference with their private contract leases.

I'm not so sure that if I was calling the shots that I wouldn't recommend to the Republicans to abstain when it came time to vote. Passing this would be an unmitigated disaster, and anyone with two functional brain cells know it. Force the democrats to defeat this nonsense on their own. Don't give them the opportunity to use legislation like this to portray the Republicans as the bad guys. Make them OWN it, lock, stock and barrel.

If something like this passes get ready for a lot of landlords to go bankrupt so they - along with the scofflaws they're renting to, can all live under an overpass together. One big happy family. Thunderbird or MD 20/20 will do in a pinch to keep warm in the winter.

Do what you really want, Omar, and write a bill that guarantees a base income of $100,000 for every Muslim, free rent, free food, a Ferrari, free clothing, free top level medical care and immunity from all laws. Stop beating around the bush and get it over with.

The solution is simple. All the landlords who are liberal can stop charging rent, and all the banks with liberal CEOs can stop collecting mortgage payments. Any liberal with a conservative landlord or bank mortgage with a liberal CEO can either move or refinance. Win win.

Patterns emerge in jury screening

MINNEAPOLIS — The first week of jury selection in the trial of a former Minneapolis police officer charged in George Floyd's death established patterns for how attorneys go about dismissing potential jurors they perceive as unfavorable to their side. The defense is striking people who tell the court they already have strong feelings about Derek Chauvin's guilt. The prosecution, meanwhile, is blocking potential jurors who seem inclined to give police the benefit of the doubt — or who express misgivings about the Black Lives Matter movement. Though their targets are predictable, there's an art to how both sides carry it out. Attorneys
$10,200 in unemployment benefits won't

The $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan signed into law this week includes a welcome tax break for unemployed workers. The law waives federal income taxes on up to $10,200 in unemployment insurance benefits for people who earn under $150,000 a year, potentially saving workers thousands of dollars. States that currently tax unemployment benefits have yet to decide whether they will allow those state taxes to be waived as well. The change is good news for many taxpayers, who could save as much as $25 billion, according to the Wall Street Journal. But it also affects an already complex tax season

Even with indoor dining returning in many parts of Southern California, officials are urging caution because of the ongoing COVID-19 risk. Dr. Muntu Davis, the Los Angeles County health officer, cautioned that eating in a restaurant’s indoor dining room is still risky. If eating at a restaurant, dining outdoors remains safer, he said Friday. “People are susceptible to this virus. There are variants that are circulating in our county,” Davis said. “Many of those can be more easily transmitted, and some may be causing more severe disease.” The risk of dining indoors at restaurants is one reason why L.A.

MINNEAPOLIS – Target announced on Thursday that the company is downsizing its Minneapolis office space by moving out of City Center, a move that decreases its downtown footprint by one-third. In an email to corporate employees, Target executives said its post-pandemic “Flex for Your Day” policy—a hybrid model that will allow both remote and on-site work—requires less office space, driving the decision to stop its lease of nearly one million square feet at City Center. The 3,500 employees who worked at that location will be relocated to another Minneapolis location or Brooklyn Park. There are no lay-offs due to the

UNITED NATIONS — The United Nations chief criticized the “many examples of vaccine nationalism and vaccine hoarding” as well as side deals with COVID-19 vaccine manufacturers that undermine access to all people in the world. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said in a statement marking one year since the U.N. World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a pandemic that “the global vaccination campaign represents the greatest moral test of our times.” Ensuring that all people are vaccinated -- and “many low-income countries have not yet received a single dose” -- is essential to restart the global economy “and help the world move from

Pharmacists may be on the front line of Covid-19 vaccination distribution, but they feel increasingly like an afterthought when they try to get paid for it. A common complaint among community pharmacists is that they are sapped physically, mentally and financially by hours of paperwork, piles of rejected claims and unceasing billing audits just to receive some level of payment for administering vaccines.
