MORE (I-Vt.) on Wednesday released a $2.5 trillion plan to guarantee housing for every American.

Sanders said the plan would “guarantee every American — regardless of income — a fundamental right to a safe, decent, accessible, and affordable home” and would be paid for by a wealth tax on the top one-tenth of 1 percent of income earners.

“There is virtually no place in America where a full-time minimum wage worker can afford a decent two bedroom apartment.

At a time when half of our people are living paycheck to paycheck, this is unacceptable,” he said.

“For too long the federal government has ignored the extraordinary housing crisis in our country.

It would also invest another $400 billion to build 2 million mixed-income social housing units.

Sanders’s campaign, much like his 2016 bid, has made a benchmark issue of income and advantage disparities between upper-class and working-class Americans. »
