    I think they need to build affordable housing also provided affordable homes for people to buy. This is for the working class that can’t afford a home.

    People of all economic status should be able to purchase a home. Affordable housing is a slave mentality, people that work hard everyday should be able to purchase a home.

    If they can buy a car and live in apartments they should be able to buy an affordable home. If you want to talk about this is further details let me know. I have several plans and buying options.Report
