Article 34: How California Made Public Housing Illegal, with Diego Aguilar-Canabal and Jordan Grimes

2019-07-18

Diego Aguilar-Canabal comes on the show to speak on his article about how an anti-public-housing movement began with Oakland homeowners, and Jordan Grimes discusses how the constitutional amendment that came out of this movement still affects affordable housing programs today. We talk about the unsuccessful Supreme Court challenge to this amendment, and rant for a while about how dumb dead-ends in leftist discourse undermine a future in which we are able to build public housing again.
