While the Supreme Court correctly deemed President Biden’s extension of the ban on evictions illegal (“Justice Kavanaugh Replies to Mr. Biden,” Review & Outlook, Aug. 28), Speaker Nancy Pelosi cynically denounced the decision as cruel and immoral. What is really cruel is that only a fraction of the nearly $47 billion that Congress allocated for the Emergency Rental Assistance Program has been distributed. The speaker should not inject herself into the court’s decision for political gain, but rather see to it that landlords are paid so tenants can remain in their homes.
