The Rural Poor


Oh the tragedy of it,  they can't even afford Cars!

An MSN special report recently highlighted the travesties of the USDA's rural housing program designed to provide access to safe and sanitary housing to the nation's rural poor.

Ewa Beach

The photo above is from the golf course in Ewa Beach, a town just down the coast from Honolulu, where houses cost from $200,000 to $1,000,000 Reuters found 250 zero down USDA mortgages in Ewa Beach.  Reuters also found over 180 loans to borrowers earning more than $500,000.  The USDA Inspector General found 37% of the loans made did not meet eligibility guidelines.  

Rest Assured

Your government is taking care of the rural poor... in Honolulu, Los Angeles, Washington DC, Seattle, Tampa, and even Hyannisport.
