Ilhan Omar Proposes $1 Trillion Housing Fix
Article from Reason by Christian Britschgi.
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D–Minn.) is the latest politician to release an ambitious, expensive proposal to fix America’s affordable housing problem. The congresswoman, a member of the so-called “Squad” of recently elected leftist legislators, wants to spend $1 trillion building new public housing.
“Our current free-market housing system is not meeting the needs of working families,” said Omar in a press release last week announcing her Homes for All Act. “Housing is a fundamental human right. It’s time we as a nation acted like it and end the housing crisis once and for all.”
To secure this fundamental human right, Omar’s legislation would spend $800 billion over the next 10 years developing 9.5 million new units of public housing. Another $200 billion would be spent through the existing federal Housing Trust Fund to subsidize the development of 2.5 million private affordable housing units.
Omar’s bill would also create a $200 billion grant program to help local governments fight gentrification. The legislation doesn’t explain how exactly these local governments would use the money to do that.

It is time to get rid of omar and soros they have both lied on their application for citizenship, revoke it and deport both of these POS back to the country of their birth, they are constantly working against the best interest of the US so do what is right by them and get rid of these two and everyone else that actively works against America
Her comments are rich – she came from some backward hell hole, living in a tent and sleeping on the ground and now she wants us to give everyone an affordable home. Go back to your hell hole and fix that instead of meddling in our country.
Send her back to her mud hut in whatever hell hole she came from. It is a disgrace that this pos is in our goverrnment at all!
Start making them supply the source of the funds when they make proposals like this. If they can fund it, they can take it to the floor. If it is pie in the sky, throw it out. Plain and simple. Take away their dream sessions, their moment of glory under the spotlight, their look at me moments that simply can and will never happen because our money trees stop producing.
How in blue hell do we get rid of this idiot?? She will definitely destroy the US of A!
Vote against her, if she’s on your ballot.
Campaign against her, even if you can’t vote against her.
send her back to Somalia…
maybe her Plan will meet with a better audience…
Ilhan Omar is a uniquely destructive force in Congress. Anti-Semitic, terrorist sympathizer, insane spender, Omar is pursuing the destruction of America. The US needs her removed from Congress.
I still blame the brainless, uniformed, CNN watching voters who voted her into office! Oh my, I guess I just defined a DemoRat…lol
Why don’t you go back to Somalia and live in a mud hut!
It seems everything the democrats propose is a “basic human right”. I was born 79 years ago and the only “right” Was liberty and the pursuit of life. Nothing was guaranteed, not housing, not health care, not an education beyond the basics and not a job. We pursued our dreams and didn’t expect anything to be given to us. I think we were happier then than those growing up now. For pocket money I delivered newspapers, dug foundations of summer cabins and, with some friends, put down lawns and worked in a department store; all before I was 18.
Didn’t read the article, just came here to comment that I will give this American hating individual no time what-so-ever, other than to ask for her deportment.
Be a lot cheaper to dump her back where she came from.
