  • “Beto believes that no matter where you live, every American should be able to afford a roof over their head,” a spokesperson for O’Rourke’s campaign said in an emailed statement. “Beto wants to increase funding for the National Housing Trust Fund (HTF) which would help to finance an increase in the stock of affordable housing and rental assistance programs. Beto also believes we need to ensure that economic development does not come at the expense of communities, pushing people out." Quoted from VICE NEWS
