How government should get back in the housing business

A new report from the progressive policy research and advocacy organization Center for American Progress posits that is because there just aren’t enough homes, and those that once were affordable have shifted to the very high end amidst market pressures, leaving few places for low-income people to turn. Because this is a nationwide issue, CAP wants to see the federal government help deal with it–specifically by sponsoring a large-scale housing construction program to add an additional 1 million affordable units to the market over the span of five years.
