Are you an angry renter?
I haven’t closely followed the news surrounding the housing crisis, but I know the basics.
What I didn’t know, however, was that renters represent 32 percent of American households, or that homes in foreclosure are less than 2 percent of all households, or that the vast majority of mortgages are being paid on time. Yet the Senate still passed a multi-billion dollar housing bailout this week.
FreedomWorks is working to bring some perspective to the debate with a new campaign site, AngryRenter.com. Their goal is to get 100,000 people to sign the petition, which they will then deliver to Capitol Hill. You don’t even have to be a renter to sign the petition, just a citizen unhappy with government bailouts.
