209. Thank you! a good starting place would be the National Housing Trust Fund,
Edited on Sat Apr-05-08 01:22 PM by bobbolink
proposed by Barney Frank.

It passed the House, I believe, and is now languishing in the Senate.

Maybe if you're willing, you can look for an update on it, and see where it stands?

Otherwise, it's really time to educate people about the REAL housing crisis.. the one that's been going on for decades!!

The more you can collect facts, and speak with others, the more we have a chance of turning things around.

Thanks again for your willingness!

:hi:

edited to say: here's a good example of what we're facing, and please don't think that this kind of ignorance is all RWers.... many "Dems" are deluded in this way, also. By writing letters to the editor on these things, attending meetings like this one, talking with those around you and maybe organizing a town hall meeting, you can help immensely to change minds:
