There’s been a lot of scheming going on in the Senate lately.
Democrats are trying to force through Joe Biden’s new infrastructure bill.
Republicans have proposed an alternative.
But Nancy Pelosi said the House won’t budge unless other Democrat policies can come in through the backdoor.
They call this the reconciliation process.
With or without reconciliation, Biden’s bill will wreck American suburbs, and here’s why.
According to some reports, the focus of Biden’s infrastructure bill is in part to address aging infrastructure across the country, but the massive bill also covers a vast amount of other spending, including money for “diversifying” neighborhoods.
Sources claim that part of the plan with only democratic support would change zoning laws to end single-family home neighborhoods and allow for multiple unit “affordable” or low-income rental housing.
The plan may call for local governments to essentially abolish suburbs, by making grants contingent upon towns and counties allowing apartments in any neighborhood, including those currently zoned for only single-family homes.Daily Veracity
This means that your neighborhood could be flooded with immigrants and cheap housing for those immigrants.
You can only imagine what that will do to crime levels and property prices…
It will also rip the heart out of American culture by handing the Democrats a permanent majority.
If certain towns want to preserve their small-town feel, they must turn down the money, hurting the towns and leading to a sizeable infusion of taxpayer dollars for Democratic-dominated cities.
If suburbs take the money, they would essentially be signing a contract to become architecturally dense, like cities, likely leading to permanent democrat control over those jurisdictions.Daily Veracity
This is also continuing an anti-white initiative begun by Barack Obama, and with similarities to efforts that Bill Clinton made.
During the Barack Obama Administration, HUD, under the 2015 ‘Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing Initiative,’ created regulations to integrate any neighborhood in America that was over 50% White. President Bill Clinton started a similar program in 1994 called “Moving to Opportunity Initiative,” which moved thousands of mostly Black-American families from government projects to higher-quality section-8 homes in White suburbs.Daily Veracity
Of course, this federal attempt to replace the population and socially engineer the suburbs was a disaster for everyone involved.
The experiment bombed. A 2011 study sponsored by HUD found that adults involved in the program did not get better jobs or get off welfare, and their children did not do any better in school. In fact, more adults went on food stamps, and crime followed them to their White neighborhoods, ruining the quality of life for existing residents, and driving down the values of the homes in the areas.
Dubuque, Iowa, for example, received an influx of voucher holders from projects in Chicago — and it’s had a problem with crime ever since. A recent study linked Dubuque’s crime wave directly to Section 8 housing, and in other cities like Dallas, a similar scenario played out.Daily Veracity
States have the power to control this, and that’s where there’s some hope.
States have the authority and the right to zone in a way that is beneficial to the homeowners who have worked their entire lives to afford a home in a safe area, and to count on the value of their home to remain relatively stable.
Republican state legislatures should move to zone in a way that keeps low-rent housing with low-rent housing, apartment complexes near apartment complexes, and houses near houses. And all of those nowhere near each other.Daily Veracity
If state legislatures do this, it will be a good start, but it can’t end there.
Private corporations are also muscling in on this opportunity to take over American suburbs, because it benefits them financially.
If jurisdictions reject the plan, and states move to prevent the coming zoning proposals by law, private corporations may pick up the slack and do what the government can’t through the private sector.
According to a recent report from the Wall Street Journal, roughly 200 investment firms are buying tens of thousands of homes — and sometimes entire neighborhoods — raising prices, and competing with middle-class Americans looking to take advantage of low-interest rates and buy their first home.
Wall Street’s latest mass real estate grab has grown to tens of billions of dollars, representing hundreds of thousands of properties. In some communities, it has fundamentally altered housing ecosystems, fueling a housing boom without a homeowner boom. Private-equity firms have developed new ways to secure credit, enabling them to leverage their equity and acquire a nearly endless amount of homes.Daily Veracity
This would turn America into a nation of renters, without any private property of their own.
Younger people have a reputation for wanting to rent, but polling shows otherwise.
Looks like it’s time for Republicans to step up and do something about this, before it’s too late.
