16. Yep. This one of those 'feel good' sorts of things folks on our side instinctively gravitate toward

Because we're nice people and we don't want to see our fellow citizens put out on the streets, thru little or no fault of their own. Esp. when it's poor folks suffering, and wealthier folks being forced to bear the costs.

Don't get me wrong, I, in fact, quite love this tendency we have

But it is, in fact, staggeringly unfair to the people who own the properties ... and by no means are all property owners greedy/filthy rich people.

MANY people who own rental properties in fact are senior citizens, and they're renting out the homes they paid off for half their lives. Many have planned for the rental income to sustain themselves on top of their SS.

It's really not right for the Feds to just unilaterally declare 'suck it up you're not getting your rent money, Grandma!'

I'm cool with the eviction moratoriums, but the Feds need to compensate the landlords. It's that simple.
