Ilhan Omar just revealed a despicable plan that will bankrupt America
Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar continues to prove how much disdain she has for the United States.
She hops on any opportunity to attack the country that she fled to as a child.
And she just revealed a despicable plan that will bankrupt America.
Ilhan Omar has a lot of insane and downright despicable policy proposals.
Her anti-Israel BDS legislation is so dangerous that she is banned from visiting the Jewish state of Israel.
The goal of BDS is to bankrupt Israel through boycotts, divestments, and sanctions.
But it isn’t just Israel that her policies would bankrupt.
She just announced a public housing plan that costs $1 trillion.
City Lab reports:
“Minnesota Representative Ilhan Omar introduced a bold act on Thursday that would commit $1 trillion to the cause of affordable housing. That’s trillion with a T, which makes Omar’s bill a new milemarker in the progressive left’s efforts to stake out a national housing agenda.
Housing has emerged as a pressing issue on the campaign trail, and it surfaced as a concern during the Democratic Party forum on Wednesday night. Several candidates discussed their plans on topics such as zoning, rent relief, and racial segregation. Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren spoke to the history of redlining, while New Jersey Senator Cory Booker mentioned his plan for a tax credit for renters. Yet a separate idea is brewing on the left. Housing is a litmus for liberals, as as a younger generation of progressives embraces a solution abandoned by elected officials after decades of systemic failures: public housing.
Omar’s Homes for All Act plants a flag for an unapologetic public housing agenda. Her bill would authorize funding for 12 million new homes over 10 years, most of which would take the form of public housing.”
Public housing complexes have largely been a failure. Their management is rife with corruption, and the complexes themselves are hotbeds for crime.
These “affordable” housing complexes also bring down the property values of homes near them, hurting middle class Americans.
This doesn’t even bring up the fact that the United States cannot afford to spend $1 trillion, or if passed, Omar’s plan would certainly lead to a major tax increase for hard-working Americans.
