Inslee Speeds Up Vaccine Eligibility for Restaurant Workers, Homeless; Extends Eviction Moratorium Through June 30

Honestly the best governor this state has ever had.

Inslee has done a damn good job.
Our infection rates have consistently been among the lowest in the nation.
Plus we have legal weed!!

Eviction moratoriums aren't constitutional as decided by a US District Court. It'll end up in the Supreme Court probably. The taxpayers will then foot the bill to pay back all the landlords. So we do have socialism after all.

State of Texas v. Center for Disease Control and Prevention et al. No. 6:20 -cv- 00564 (2021), it was determined that Article I of the U.S. Constitution does not grant, within the federal government's regulation of commerce, the right to prohibit residential evictions.

@3 How much would you like to bet on that outcome, Trollflake?

It obviously makes sense to inoculate the homeless but if you think Bubba Qanon is paranoid, good luck trying to get your average paranoid as fuck tweeker to get the poke. How about reinstall the navigation teams to give vaccinations to anyone who wants to illegally camp in a downtown park. Want to pop your tent anywhere, you need to show youve been vaccinated, otherwise you leave or pull up your sleave.

@5 Homeless veterans -- hardly a group without psychological problems or addiction issues -- have been getting vaccinated for some six weeks or more now, according to the person I know at the VA who works on an outreach team administering injections.

But then I suppose that's just a government agency quietly doing its job, so it doesn't really count here in the the imaginary internet points thunderdome, does it.

I don’t think you need to be vaccinated to visit your loved one in a long term care facility as long as they’re vaccinated. Grandma’s gonna get a hug soon!

“If I had a nickel for every excuse I have heard for not giving our children on-site instruction, I would be a millionaire at this point. These excuses are getting just a little bit tiresome, frankly.” With friends like this who needs Republicans...

10

So a 21 year old bar tender can get vaccinated before a 58 year old employee at Best Buy? No wonder why people are jumping the line.

11

@10 - well, Best Buy employees are not working in close proximity to others (for the most part) and they are certainly not working around maskless people so there's that...

@3: The decision you cite only prohibits the FEDERAL government from enacting an eviction moratorium. It does not prohibit the STATES from enacting an eviction moratorium. In fact, page one of the decision explicitly says that states DO have the power to enact an eviction moratorium. And the US Supreme Court has previously upheld state-level eviction moratoriums, as the judge in YOUR OWN CITATION recites.

15

@3, expanding on @14, the opinion you referenced states:

This lawsuit does not question that the States may regulate residential evictions and foreclosures, as they have long done. For instance, during the Great Depression, 27 States enacted foreclosure moratoriums and other laws meant to mitigate the effects of a wave of foreclosures. Geoff Walsh, The Finger in the Dike: State and Local Laws Combat the Foreclosure Tide, 44 Suffolk U. L. Rev. 139, 139-43 (2011). In upholding one such law against a challenge not raised here, the Supreme Court recognized the “control which the state retains over remedial processes” in this area as part of the State’s “police power, [which] is an exercise of the sovereign right of the government to protect the lives, health, morals, comfort, and general welfare of the people.” Home Bldg. Ass’n v. Blaisdell, 290 U.S. 398, 434, 437 (1934).

I note that, as expected, #3 is nowhere to be found when asked to put up or shut up.

@16 I'm not that guy, but he's absolutely right. Inslee proclaimed the first statewide eviction moratorium on 3/18/20. Now we are beyond a year where tenants have not had to pay their rent, irrespective of means testing. Of course, landlords have still been on the hook for two rounds of property taxes (no moratorium there, suckers!) along with all the other expenses that go into their businesses.

There is ample case law covering eminent domain, which is of course the issue here since the state is prohibiting landlords from recovering financial losses due to back rent. As coronavirus continues to recede as a factor with more vaccinations, more reopenings of businesses, and more resumption of service sector jobs, courts will find themselves handling injunction requests and lawsuits making the state liable for the debts it required landlords to incur.

Emergency or not, these proclamations amounted to an unlawful taking which was particularly egregious because no proof of income interruption was required for a tenant to stop paying rent. These policies are not long for this world, and the debt in arrears is going to hamper our economic recovery.

I sympathize with people who have been out of work for months. I also sympathize with landlords who have lost income for months and still had to pay taxes on nonperforming units. I have zero sympathy for people who could pay but chose not to. They've been free riders. Fuck them and their credit scores too.

Hello!
My name is Elizabeth, Four years ago, i tested herpes Virus (HSV-2) positive and i was told that there is no cure that i will live with it till i die, The shock of knowing that the Virus has no cure was something that scared me most. I was never feeling good because each time i intend to be happy, the thought that there is no cure will come into my mind and i will just be sad once more. I lose weight unknowingly to me and it was as if i was going to die, everyday is always ful of fear. After four years as i was online, i came accross a testimony about how Doctor Ojeabulu has done so many things and cure so many people then i showed my Doctor that there is a herbal cure for the Virus and the Doctor said there is nothing as such. I decided to give it a try because my present condition was nothing to write about then i write to the email i saw online and he responded and told me all that i need to know. I told my friend and she told me never to believe anything i saw online, i believe her because i was scammed earlier because i wanted to change my condition then i proceed with the purchase of Doctor Ojeabulu medicine. After some days that i purchased the medicine then i started observing some changes in my health and i went to the hospital and i tested negative. Doctor has done so many other great things that you and i have seen online, a man complained that his business is in stagnat position and doctor Ojeabulu help him to be successful, a woman lose her husband to another lady after one month of marriage and Doctor Ojeabulu help her also to balance her marriage. Doctor Ojeabulu has so many solutions to any problem that you might be facing that seems to be very difficult to you now. Give it a try and you will see great change in your life.

Thank you, Rich, for another well-written article. I just got my first of two Pfizer vaccines at my closest VA medical clinic yesterday. I go back for my booster jab in three weeks.

Well done, Governor Jay Inslee! Bless you for serving a third legitimately re-elected term as Governor of Washington, and working so diligently to make sure we are all healthy and safe. :)

@1 Professor_Hiztory and @2 pat L: for the WIN! Agreed, seconded, and thirded. :)

@16 Professor_Hiztory re @3: Yep. I noticed that, too, and suspected as much. Probably had to rush off to catch up on Speed Racer reruns.

22

@21: Sorry, Rich--I forgot to attach a smiley face for you, too. Here it is. :)

23

To all who have served our country, check with the Veterans Administration, go online to va.gov--or call 1(800) 827-1000---to locate the closest VA medical facility where you can get vaccinated for COVID-19. Veterans of all ages are now open for the vaccine. The Pfizer and Moderna are currently being offered.

Everybody stay healthy and safe.

I contacted DR Padman and he told me that my boyfriend would come back to me in the next 3 days, DR padman made a love spell and this made my boyfriend eye open to see how much we love each other and he came back home.
