Section 8 has always been a political football for politicians, and a debating point among working people. The issue is simple: should those receiving government funds for housing have time limits and work requirements attached to the vouchers?
In the video below, Frank and Gary at the National Real Estate Post discuss the comments made by both outgoing HUD Director Julian Castro and incoming director Ben Carson, and the details surrounding this debate really changed my perception as to the government’s obligations with the program.
Watch the video and give me your thoughts. What do you think about Section 8?
This gem in 70817 was foreclosed before the flood, and now has been gutted. Great potential! http://ow.ly/ausr305CZHY
Lost in the cleanup shuffle is getting your pool cleaned out and back in order. These are good people and can have your pool clear in 4 days.
This is a letter that a friend of mine received from the SBA regarding their application for SBA loan assistance. They own their own home and 3 rental houses, none of which were required to have flood insurance. However, because they were responsible with their money, acquired assets and can get “credit elsewhere”, the SBA is mandated by federal law to charge MORE interest on their SBA loan. Not only that, they would only get a 7-year term as opposed to a 30 year term available for everyone else.
This historic flood has devastated many lives in our area and systematic favoritism has no place in rebuilding peoples’ lives. This is the kind of thing that politicizes the federal disaster response efforts and breeds contempt moving forward. If EVERYONE is affected, then EVERYONE should be treated fairly.
