Increase the Supply of Affordable Housing
- Supports Affordable Housing Trust Fund: Obama has supported efforts to create an Affordable Housing Trust Fund to develop affordable housing in mixed-income neighborhoods.
- Fully Fund the Community Development Block Grant: Obama will fully fund the Community Development Block Grant program and engage with urban leaders across the country to increase resources to the highest-need Americans.
Then he outlined the details of how an Obama administration would fight its own war on poverty. If elected president, Obama said, he would sign legislation raising the minimum wage; fund programs that support poor families with children; fund not only job-training programs but programs that help workers get promotions; give incentives to bring businesses back to the inner cities; and make affordable housing more accessible in "mixed-income neighborhoods."
Hmmm.... so this is the "change" Obama has been promising? If "change" means pumping trillions of dollars into inner-city ghettos to reinstitute the very programs that have undermined values, discouraged work, subsidized illegitimacy, and resulted in a seemingly permanent underclass, I think that is "change" we can do without.
