Foreign Policy is More Than Just War and Peace

Foreign policy is more than just war and peace, it is a nuanced and complex issue that directly affects us here at home.

Jane Sanders sat down with Representative Tulsi Gabbard to talk about foreign policy, starting with her personal experiences serving our country both at home and abroad, through the government’s budget decisions between foreign and domestic spending, and our country’s approaches to some of the most contentious current foreign issues.

The Housing Crisis

20.8 million households pay more than 30% of their income on rent, and 11 million pay more than 50% of their income on rent.

47.7% of renters in metropolitan areas, and 38% of renters across the U.S. experience rental burden in 2015 (latest numbers available) 

On average, low-income families (lowest 20% of income) spend 56% of their income on rent.

553,742 people experienced homelessness on a single night in 2017 

The United States is facing a housing crisis.

Rubbish. This is what big companies always say when they merge.
