So, given this overwhelming support, why is it taking so long for Congress to pass this bill? The answer is simple. Follow the money.

It will create hundreds of thousands of jobs by building the affordable housing we need so that millions of Americans are no longer paying over 50 percent of their limited incomes on housing and so 600,000 Americans are no longer sleeping out on the street or in homeless shelters.
