From Apr. 2018
Department of Housing and Urban Development Secretary, Ben Carson, proposed raising rents for people living in public housing. This might be one of the cruelest moves yet - among many - by the Trump administration.
Ben Carson's proposal is nothing short of a slumlord move. This is an unconscionable proposition given the public housing in my district is quite literally falling apart, people are currently living in hazardous conditions.
I believe suitable housing is a human right. Carson should be should be focused on increasing federal funding for public housing, not squeezing the people struggling most to make ends meet.
