    In a video released to social media, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) urges the Biden Administration and Congress to extend the federal moratorium on evictions.

    Its known that once something temporary starts is hard to take it away. I'm glad that during pandemic and loss of employment there was life line to help people temporary.

    People need jobs, and property owners need to pay their mortgages some took out additional loans etc.
    Many landlords are regular people who have their life savings in rental properties or relocated and rented out their property.

    Nikita Khrushchev said: "We cannot expect the Americans to jump from capitalism to communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving Americans small doses of socialism, until they suddenly awake to find they have communism."

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) -The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Tuesday issued a new 60-day moratorium on residential evictions in areas with high levels of COVID-19 infections citing the raging Delta variant after having rejected an earlier push by the White House.

    REAGAN REMARKS
    In a speech by Ronald Reagan delivered before the Orange County Press Club in 1961, and entitled “Encroaching Control”, he alleged that, “Three months before his last visit to this country, Nikita Khrushchev said, ‘We can't expect the American people to jump from Capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving them small doses of Socialism, until they awaken one day to find they have Communism.’”

    The common consensus is that Khrushchev's "doses of socialism" quotation is a fake.
    Yet there were those who heard him saying this in one of the countries he visited - Poland ? some 3 to 4 months before the 1959 visit to the US.
    It was quoted in small publications there.
    Yet there is a book "They Never Said It: A Book of Fake Quotes, Misquotes, and Misleading Attributions" -- by Paul F. Boller and John George, (Oxford University Press, page 59).

    I feel badly for the people who lost their jobs or lost a significant amount of hours and were no longer able to pay their rent. However, there are people on the opposite end of the spectrum who could pay their rent and simply chose not to, I know of two people who did that and both are very well-off and could've easily paid.

    Yes, and it's often my job to try and figure out which is which.

    I'm not familiar with the laws of the moratorium.
    Is this something that Congress needs to approve when the moratorium expires or current administration can extend it without the congress?

    The supreme court ruled that the way the eviction moratorium was implemented previously was unconstitutional. The current CDC moratorium is a different question but I'll guess would reach the same fate if it reaches POTUS before it expires. I'm not very familiar with this issue though.

    No one is. Eviction moratoriums aren't something that has ever been tried before.
