157. I am talking about the gov't buying homes at auction
not taking anyone's home from them.

The gov't purchases homes, provides jobs to people fixing up those homes, then rents them out to low income people.

The homes are not given away, they are rentals. There are currently not enough low income rentals, and many of the ones that do exist are scummy slumlords, evil bastards taking advantage of desperation and treating people like crap and making them live in squalor and even those have waiting lists.
