America has reached “a very dangerous stage,” now that the Biden Administration is saying, “It may be illegal, but we’re doing it, anyway,” former Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Dr. Ben Carson said Friday, commenting on the CDC’s unconstitutional extension of the eviction moratorium.
People came to America “because they didn’t want the heavy foot of government on their neck,” but now, “the government is inserting itself into everything,” Dr. Carson told Fox & Friends First.
Extending the moratorium, even though the coronavirus is now under control, threatens to “create a permanent underclass that is dependent upon the government,” Dr. Carson warned:
“My concern is we are a country that is of, for, and by the people.
“And, the reason that people came here in the first place is because they didn’t want the heavy foot of government on their neck.
“And, now, we have a situation where the government is insinuating itself into everything, including the relationships between renters and landlords.
“And, when the moratorium was put in place, we had a very different situation than we have right now. We didn’t have a vaccine. It was really uncharted water, and the last thing we wanted was people out there with this disease raging.
“The disease largely under control now. There are lots of jobs available for people. We don’t want to create a permanent underclass that is dependent upon the government.”
The hubris of the Biden Administration’s outspoken defiance of the Supreme Court is extremely dangerous to the nation, Dr. Carson cautioned:
“And, the fact that the Supreme Court has ruled that this is beyond the purview of the Executive Branch – and they want to do it, anyway – tells us that we’ve reached a stage that is very dangerous in this country.
“If the federal government is saying, ‘It may be illegal, but we’re doing it, anyway, and who’s going to stop us?’ isn’t that leading us to a place that we don’t want to be?”
“The CDC has lost a lot of credibility, already. So, since no one believes them, they just say, ‘Look, we’re going to do it, anyway.’
“And, until they acknowledge natural immunity, it’s going to be kind of hard to believe anything they have to say.”
