If Romney wants to get rid of HUD, if he doesn't combine it with other agencies if [View all]

he should become President, the impact on seniors and people with low incomes is going to be seriously impacted. The building next to me is HUD, mostly people on SS only, little or no savings or other incoming revenue. If HUD is done away with, (I truly doubt it will but he is very cavalier in even discussing such a thing) people will absolutely be scrambling to find places to live. Rents are very high, all over. Romney is a dangerous guy and seniors and others better check him out thoroughly.

From Crooks & Liars:

"I'm going to take a lot of departments in Washington, and agencies, and combine them. Some eliminate, but I'm probably not going to lay out just exactly which ones are going to go," Romney said. "Things like Housing and Urban Development, which my dad was head of, that might not be around later. But I'm not going to actually go through these one by one. What I can tell you is, we've got far too many bureaucrats. I will send a lot of what happens in Washington back to the states."
