Fox News: Rep. Maxine Waters, the new chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, said she will make housing a priority during her tenure, and she wants a “surge” of funding to address the “crisis.”

Waters said she will re-introduce a bill that provides “$13.27 billion in new funding over 12 years” for federal programs and initiatives to prevent homelessness.”

Waters spoke Wednesday at a gathering hosted by the Center for American Progress: “A bit about housing,” she began:

A very important issue we will be bringing renewed attention to in the Financial Services Committee is housing. This country is experiencing a house, affordability and homelessness crisis.

Today, there are over half a million people out there experiencing homelessness right here in the richest country in the world. Over one-fifth of homeless are children. This includes the veterans who we failed to support when they returned home after serving our country; women fleeing domestic violence; people who have left prison after serving their debt to society; and people who have simply fallen on hard times.

It is simply shameful, and Congress indeed has a responsibility to act.

To tackle the homelessness crisis, Congress needs to provide a surge of funding and resources. Just as Congress puts billions of dollars into defense spending, we must provide the funding necessary to ensure that all Americans have access to safe, decent and affordable housing.

And so I will soon be re-introducing my bill, The Ending Homelessness Act, which would help to ensure that every American has a safe, decent and affordable place to call home. The bill provides $13.27 billion in new funding over 12 years to federal programs and initiatives to prevent homelessness.

In addition, we will be holding committee hearings on homelessness and important housing issues that have gone ignored during the last Congress in order to elevate the housing issues into a national discussion and present proactive solutions and remedies.

Waters also called for housing finance reform, and she announced the creation of a new subcommittee focusing on “diversity and inclusion” in the financial services and banking industry.

Waters repeatedly has called for the impeachment of President Trump. She absolutely rejects his call for a border wall to control the hordes of foreigners who try to enter the country illegally. Many of those people are desperately poor and in need of the housing that Waters hopes to provide with her $13.27 billion.

That $13.27 billion is $7.57 billion more than the $5.7 billion Trump is requesting for his border wall.

    Sounds like Maxine is aiming at re-instituting the 1977 Community Reinvestment Act – most likely sprinkled liberally with many ACORNS, like Obama, who will be trained to shake down banks that don’t comply. It’s the same formula Bill Clinton (and Hillary) did during his administration. Then when the crises came in 2008, they turned around and blamed Bush tax cuts! So, if successful, Maxine will have banks writing mortgage loans for everyone able to sign their name. She and rest of the Democrats will celebrate her success – until it all blows up in their faces, AGAIN. What then?
    Simple! They’ll blame Trump’s tax cuts.
