Solve the Housing Crisis by Guaranteeing Homes for All, New Campaign Demands

According to the federal government, if you pay more than 30 percent of your income toward housing, you're paying too much. And by that measure, almost every place in America is unaffordable. In only a small fraction of counties in the United States can a person working full time at the average wage afford a two-bedroom apartment, according to the National Low Income Housing Coalition.

Uhhhh... no, weirdos. That’s not how that works. There’s not one price for food and cloths. This would tank an economy faster Thant these folks can pull out their ridiculous picket signs.

Dummy up Suckers, the illegals are here to depress wages and keep the rentals full and rents high...as simple as supply n demand.

Plus they water down your vote when they are counted in the census because population determines number of federal representatives and college electoral votes.

I stopped reading at "housing costs so much is because owners expect to make a profit when they sell a house or rent an apartment." Imagine that, a business owner expecting to earn a profit...

Work more and protest less.
