"Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored." - Aldous Huxley

Economy

Fact.

Rent Control is Not a Solution To Housing Unaffordability

    • Rent regulation—both rent control and rent stabilization measures—shrinks the overall supply of housing. A 2019 study of rent control in San Francisco found that it led to a 15% reduction in rental housing and a 25% reduction in the number of renters living in rent-controlled units.
    • Rent regulation hampers the construction of new rental units, even if new construction is explicitly exempted by the regulations.
    • Faced with the financial strain from reduced revenue, owners may be unable to maintain and repair existing rental units. For example, rent-controlled buildings in Cambridge, Massachusetts were deteriorated and “in worse condition” than non-controlled buildings.

HSAs Put More Money in Your Pocket for Health Expenses

    • The vast majority of workers (98%) want to work remotely “at least some of the time.”
    • Remote work helps parents accommodate school and daycare closures as well as be more involved with daily tasks for children and the household.
    • Remote work also offers flexibility to religious groups whose traditions and observances require special preparation and practices.
    • Remote work allows people with chronic illness or a disability to be home and have medical treatment, medications, a calm work environment, reduced germ exposure, and more.

Fact.

These Attacks Need to be Seen in Their Historical Context.

    • Hamas has governed the Gaza Strip since 2007 and has continued to advocate for the establishment of an Islamic state and the destruction of Israel. The group has engaged in numerous conflicts with Israel, launching thousands of rockets and executing various lethal attacks.
    • Israel has countered these actions with frequent air strikes and military incursions into Gaza in 2008 and 2014. Both Israel and Egypt have maintained a blockade on the Gaza Strip since 2007, citing security reasons.
    • Hamas, including its military faction, the Izzedine al-Qassam Brigades, is classified as a terrorist organization by Israel, the United States, the European Union, the UK, and other nations. The group receives support from Iran in the form of funding, weapons, and training.

Community

Fact.

We need to address crime and build trust.

    • Effective policing that maintains public safety while building community trust is more needed than ever.
    • Solutions include enacting crucial police reforms—like body cameras—that have widespread consensus, reaffirming our commitment to law enforcement, looking to past program efficiency, and rekindling love for community and country.
