Kansas City, Missouri, Mayor Quinton Lucas called on the Jackson County Circuit Court to extend and expand a moratorium on evictions in a letter Tuesday sent to the county’s presiding judge.
Lucas asked Presiding Judge of the 16th Judicial Circuit J. Dale Youngs to halt “all filings, hearings, writs, enforcement, and garnishments, with narrow exceptions” through the end of June 2021 “as a matter of public health.”
For context, here's the big picture argument and talking points for the stimulus debate . . .
Money line and, to be fair, let's not deny that a great many poor whites also are in danger of getting booted into the street amid Winter . . .
"As Covid-19 continues to wreak havoc on the nation, it is exacerbating long-existing racial disparities in housing — and those disparities mean that ultimately, even more people could get sick.
"The expiration of the federal eviction ban at the end of the month will disproportionately hurt Black and Latino tenants, financially hobbling them for years and ensuring that the United States’ staggering racial wealth gap won’t narrow anytime soon."
And so . . .
WITH THIS LETTER, MAYOR Q HAS SPARKED A 'CULTURAL SHIFT' FOR PROPERTY OWNERS IN KANSAS CITY!!!
A perspective on what's this move REALLY means . . .
An eviction ban into next year would pretty much financially decimate any small time property owner and the unpaid rent would surge beyond a point attainable by low-income tenants - The cash will NEVER be made up and the eviction ban threatens to spark an economic shift that fundamentally changes the American housing market. What we're really talking about is a federal housing takeover.
We could use scary words like "socialism" but that ignores other industries like the airlines which basically operate under a heavily subsidized, regulated and federalized model but still provide profits to stockholders.
Basically, Mayor Q is offering Kansas City a preview of an American low-income housing buyout that will transform property rights in the United States.
To be fair to the mayor and his scribbling . . . He's just taking orders.
Remember that we've warned readers, COVID-19 has radically changed the world in which we live and the transformation won't be remedied by a vaccine.
The pandemic now impacts property and how Americans will live in the future.
