NLIHC CEO Yentel, MHARR CEO Weiss, Black Minister React to new HUD

  • “As we think about housing in today’s world, the most important aspect should start with affordability. When home ownership is affordable, it has ancillary benefits,” said Rev. Donald Tye, Jr. to MHProNews.com.
  • National Low Income Housing Coalition CEO Diane Yentel, MHARR CEO Mark Weiss, Black Minister Rev Donald Tye, Jr. React to new HUD “Worst Case Housing” Needs Report, and comments by HUD Secretary, Dr. Ben Carson.

    The number of households experiencing this “worst case housing” has increased by 41% since 2007 and by 66% since 2001. We are experiencing an affordable housing crisis of unprecedented proportions,” says a release from Diane Yentel, President and CEO of the National Low Income Housing Coalition (NLIHC).

    Yentel thinks that Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary, Dr. Ben Carson, is only partially correct in believing that public-private partnerships and relaxed regulations could fulfill the needs for more affordable rental housing.

    She said, “While fewer regulatory barriers to housing production would help in high cost markets where the rental supply is tight, the private market will never provide sufficient housing for the lowest income households.”

    Yentel wants the Mortgage Interest Deduction (MID) for higher wage earners to be changed, so that those dollars could pay for more federal housing programs.

    Other Options?

    Actively retired minister and businessman, Donald Tye, Jr., has a different perspective.  He wants to see ownership as the paradigm, not rental housing.

    He also points to an often overlooked option.

    As we think about housing in today’s world, the most important aspect should start with affordability.
    When home ownership is affordable, it has ancillary benefits
    ,” Rev. Tye said to MHProNews.

    Ownership builds character, competence, and integrity,” Tye said.

    One thing that is completely missed by politicians and prejudice towards manufactured housing is the tax benefit.”

    Tye and his wife raised their family in a factory-built home that was affordable. They paid it off completely in just a few years.  The home they bought in the early 1970s, located in a Cincinnati, Ohio neighborhood, is now worth about 4 times its original price, per Zillow

    Other homes like Tye’s were installed next to conventional housing, which also appreciated.

    What kind of home can someone buy today with low wages?  A manufactured home,” Tye states. 

    Aware of the prejudice and bigotry toward manufactured housing, Tye sees parallels to what happened in the civil rights movement. 

    He believes their own experience disproves the common misconceptions.  It’s as important to accept manufactured homes into neighborhoods where available buildable lots exist, as it was to accept blacks into previously all white neighborhoods. 

    There goes the neighborhood,” says Tye “was a fallacy with respect to the integration of people years ago, as it is with respect to the integration of housing types” today. 

    Third-party, university-level research bears out his belief.

    Affordable homeownership builds equity instead of rental receipts, he argues.  And in time, as homes are paid off, working and middle-class Americans can afford more than they could achieve by just renting.

    Plus, Tye stresses, instead of being a tax burden, that household becomes a tax benefit to the community.

    Stars like millionaire performer Kid Rock, notes Tye, have celebrated their own manufactured home. Recent reports of billionaires who own single-section manufactured homes as a getaway may also help change outdated and flawed perceptions.

    HUD Secretary Carson

    Secretary Carson has said several times in recent weeks that home owners have an average net worth of some $200,000.  Renting households?  They only have a $5,000 average net worth, Carson said.

    While Carson has spoken favorably about manufactured homes in rural areas, he has not yet publicly commented on their use in urban settings. Yet it is his agency that has jurisdiction over federally regulated manufactured housing.

    That is something Tye and others wants to see Carson address.  More important, he wants to see that option become more available in urban and suburban settings.

    Industry CEO Weighs In

    There are steps that HUD could take today to increase the availability of safe, decent and affordable housing for American families without spending a dime of taxpayer money,” said Mark Weiss, JD.

    Weiss is the president and CEO of the Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform (MHARR), which like the NLIHC, is based in Washington, D.C.

    Studies undertaken by HUD itself, show that HUD regulated manufactured housing is the nation’s most affordable housing, surpassing even rentals” in affordability, Weiss told MHProNews.

    Weiss wants to see manufactured homes fully incorporated into HUD’s programs.  He also wants to see existing law applied. President Donald J. Trump and Vice President Mike Pence have both broadly said that they will “enforce the law,” and are in the “promise keeping business.”

    What Weiss wants is for precisely that to happen for manufactured housing, so that millions more can be served. Over time, that would reduce costs to taxpayers.

    Weiss laid out his bullets as follows.

    By more fully:

    • incorporating manufactured housing into all of HUD’s housing programs;
    • by advancing and facilitating the acceptance of manufactured housing within HUD and by government at all levels, as already required by law;
    • by eliminating unnecessary and non-cost-effective federal regulation; by preventing the discriminatory exclusion of manufactured housing by rogue jurisdictions, using powers already provided by existing law, and, most importantly:
    • by putting the HUD manufactured housing program under the direction of a qualified appointee, as provided by law,

    HUD could elevate and reinvigorate an existing public – private sector program capable of providing inherently affordable housing for millions of Americans at virtually no cost.”

    The latest kitchen innovation – Wable Raclette hood

  • Past week the Dutch entrepreneur/inventor Robin Willemse launched his product which is very useful for a lot of households in Europe. He started a kickstarter campaign for “Wable”. This raclette grill exhaust hood, which you can put over your raclette grill, ensures all the poisonous particulate matters, odours and whirling around grease is being sucked into the hood and filtered.
  • Summary:“Well if it can kill birds, it must not be too healthy for people and particular children and people who are asthmatic”

    Past week the Dutch entrepreneur/inventor Robin Willemse launched his product which
    is very useful for a lot of households in Europe. He started a kickstarter campaign for ‘’Wable’’. This raclette grill exhaust hood, which you can put over your raclette grill, ensures all the poisonous particulate matters, odours and whirling around grease is being sucked into the hood and filtered.

    Robin  Willemse, former entrepreneur of BBQ Burger in Almere, the Netherlands, has had  negative experiences with exhaust systems. In his restaurant the hamburgers were
    grilled on real barbecues. The enormous amount of smoke that came along with this process was hard to filter and sometimes made his restaurant looking like it was on fire. This did not get of his head. During the holidays, when using the raclette grill with the whole family, it was the topic of conversation: ‘’Nice using the raclette grill, but the nasty odours make your house smell for days’’.

    ‘’Actually it is very strange that nowadays in the Netherlands more than half of the people use their raclette grill during the holidays but there is still no real exhaust hood for the odours’’. That is wat Robin Willemse thought off when he began designing the raclette grill exhaust hood. Several months he worked with his father, father in law and brothers to get the design right and that worked out. Since the 6th of March you can order the product.

    Robin Willemse is trying to get the funding via a Kickstarter campaign. You can order a ‘’Wable’’ via www.kickstarter.com or via www.wable.eu. When Robin has reached 1000 orders, the producing can start. He is convinced that it will be a great success: ‘’Who doesn’t love to use the raclette grill with his loved ones, without the nasty odours spreading through the entire house’’. You are thinking, the table even fuller than it is, but nothing is further from the truth. Because his flat design the Wable creates extra space on the table.

    The Wable has even more advantages than what Robin Willemse thought off when designing it with his family. ‘’We tested all thinkable tests on the Wable’’. This is when
    they found out that it sucks and filters all particulate matters, so the air is always clean. This used to be a big problem for people with birds. ‘’Well if it can kill birds, it must not be too healthy for people and particular children and people who are asthmatic’’ is what Robin thought when he began experimenting with his filter. The Wable comes with disposable filters.

    A Woman-owned business creates the ultimate travel gear for the busy traveler

  • “I like to run marathons, and they are very quick trips: you fly in, run the marathon, and leave,” said Stephanie Timmer. “This is the ideal travel gear for me. The light weight is awesome, and I don’t have to check any luggage because the bag is big enough to hold everything and still small enough to fit in the overhead. I can’t think of anything worse than training for a big race and not have running shoes on race day because the airline lost my bag.”
  • Summary:The airlines have changed how they treat passengers and luggage, but NeatPack is dedicated to creating a line of travel gear to accommodate those new travel burdens. NeatPack, the makers of lightweight, foldable, durable travel gear that is engineered to make your travels easier. Sunartec, Inc is continuing to innovate the future of travel gear. All travel starts with packing – so pack with NeatPack.

    New woman-owned business creates the ultimate travel gear for the busy traveler

    Sunartec, Inc. has released a new line of high quality, lightweight travel bags called NeatPack. Its compact and durable design makes it ideal for quick trips. Its light weight makes it easy to carry through the airport or pack into another piece of luggage for those trips when you return with more than you went with.  Each bag is made with an extremely tough, lightweight but very flexible nylon so it will fit where other luggage can’t. The bags have a lot of compartments engineered to have a spot for everything, keeping you organized.  You can have a bag pre-packed with your essential travel items, and all you have to do is add your clothes and go.

    Hanny Sunarto, the CEO, is an engineer and a vivid athlete and makes frequent short trips for business and pleasure, she is all too familiar with taking short trips. She got tired of having to check luggage and get charged for it, and then deal with lost and delayed luggage, or of getting on the plane only to realize that there was no room left for her bag in the overhead storage. Hanny addresses these problems from an engineering perspective, in the design of the products. She looked at the problems: roller boards are easy to pull, but they don’t fit into all planes’ overhead storage and they require you to use one of your hands to pull it, they are not ideal when packing for short trips. So, she designed a lightweight foldable line of bags, with a lot of compartments, that you can wear.

    Being a frequent flier, Hanny realized the need to be organized, and a lot of thought went into each compartment. There is a compartment for toiletries, a secure spot for your valuables that can be locked and positioned out of the reach of pickpockets. It is designed in such a way that your clothes don’t touch your dirty shoes or wet swim suit. Going through TSA is a breeze with just one zipper to pull out your liquids. NeatPack is truly a smart way to travel. 

    NeatPack bags are more than lightweight and durable; they are very functional. If you have ever been in a bathroom where there is little or no room on the counter, or the counter is wet and dirty, you will appreciate the fact that the toiletry bags are designed to be hung. The soft-sided packing cubes work wonders for keeping you organized when traveling. You can neatly fold items and put them in a cube and they stay there. You don’t have to dig through all your neatly packed cloths to find your socks. NeatPack is the smart way to pack.

    “I like to run marathons, and they are very quick trips: you fly in, run the marathon, and leave,” said Stephanie Timmer. “This is the ideal travel gear for me. The compartments help me keep organized. I can just grab my bag and get on the plane. The light weight is awesome, and I don’t have to check any luggage because the bag is big enough to hold everything and still small enough to fit in the overhead. I can’t think of anything worse than training for a big race and not have running shoes on race day because the airline lost my bag.”

    Joe Exotic Independent Candidate For U.S. President

  • It is just not fair that in this country an Independent cannot debate a Republican or Democrat and why does the news media not care about other choices?
  • Summary:Joseph Maldonado seems to be the only Candidate in this race who spends more time answering the peoples questions about problems than anyone else

    Wynnewood OK- U.S. Presidential Candidate Joseph Maldonado otherwise known as “Joe Exotic” released his 242 political video messages since his campaign started in November of 2015.

    There are so many issues that face this country that is not getting any attention from the front runners, at some point someone has to stop and listen to what is really going on out here in the real world “Joe comments”. There are more than enough jobs out here for people to take, the problem is this country hands out so much free stuff no one wants to work anymore, Have you driven through a fast food restaurant and got your order right? And they want to raise their pay to $15.00 per hour which means by the time the employer matches taxes they are now paying close to $20.00 per hour. What does the Democrat’s want to do, shut down more businesses? The problem is the politicians that are in office and have been for 30 years never step foot out here in the real working world, so they have no clue “Joe says”.

    Other problems Mr. Maldonado says never seems to get addressed is the domestic terrorist here in the United States. When the FBI and Congress has had hearings that the Animal Rights Groups are this Nation’s top terrorist problem and they are still nonprofit in this country, we seem to have a bit of a problem. Frivolous lawsuits, abusing the Federal Court system to stalk, harass and bankrupt people only for an agenda Mr. Maldonado feels this must come to a stop in this country.

    Social Security is a huge issue for Mr. Maldonado. If a person wants a savings account they should sit one up and be responsible for their own retirement savings, the Government should have nothing to do with it. They basically stole 2.7 Trillion dollars from Social Security on bad investments with money that did not belong to them. If it was anyone else they would be in jail for theft or embezzlement “Joe Said”.

    Setting down with them man has been a truly eye opening experience, the ideas and fixing problems right here at home that Mr. Maldonado has is truly remarkable.
