This is how Americans down on their luck are treated. There is no mercy. Just greed. And only the crooks thrive. And one of them is in the White House. The wealthy in America get unlimited bailouts. If you are a homeowner who, due to no fault of their own, you get nothing but kicked to the curveside.
This might be the most evil example of what is happening to Americans due to no fault of their own. But millions of our fellow citizens await a similar fate:
Millions of Americans who have missed rent payments due to the coronavirus pandemic could be at risk of being evicted in the coming months unless government measures to protect them are extended, economists and housing experts say.
It’s really bad. And not getting better:
As the economic fallout from the coronavirus pandemic continues, almost one-third of U.S. households, 32%, have not made their full housing payments for July yet, according to a survey by Apartment List, an online rental platform.
About 19% of Americans made no housing payment at all during the first week of the month, and 13% paid only a portion of their rent or mortgage.
That’s the fourth month in a row that a “historically high” number of households were unable to pay their housing bill on time and in full, up from 30% in June and 31% in May. Renters, low-income and younger households were most likely to miss their payments, Apartment List found.
