Do you live in the suburbs?
If so, do you like your home — the space it affords you, the nice yard, the exclusive garage, your own back porch and your privacy?
Yes, well, guess who doesn’t like that you have all of that?
Joe Biden’s Marxist handlers.

They are angling to restart an Obama-era ‘fair housing’ initiative that will result in poor, crime-addled urban housing projects essentially being relocated to a suburb near you.
And why? Well, ‘officially’ it’s to ‘achieve equity and diversity’ in the ‘burbs.
But the real reason is to destroy another vestige of traditional American life by causing more chaos on the way to ‘revolutionary change.’
Writing at FoxNews.com, Texas GOP Rep. Beth Van Duyne sums it up:
Joe Biden's “American Jobs Act” is another delivery of radical campaign promises, but not the ones you might expect from a transportation branded bill – it's the beginning of the end for America's suburbs.
Through this policy proposal, municipalities will be incentivized to cancel single-family zoning, the cornerstone of suburban neighborhood development.
This plan builds on the Obama-Biden administration's Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing policy that was revoked during my time at the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) by Secretary Ben Carson because it was, “unworkable and ultimately a waste of time for localities to comply with, too often resulting in funds being steered away from communities that need them most.”
President Biden campaigned to take Obama's already dangerous policies one step further, citing the Home Act of 2019 of Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., which would eliminate “exclusionary zoning policies and local regulations that contribute to sprawl.”
In case you missed it in all the political jargon, “exclusionary zoning policies” is the rebrand from what we all know as single-family zoning – meaning your neighborhood and mine. In fact, Booker's press release defines it here: “exclusionary zoning laws, for example, are local ordinances that ban apartment buildings from certain residential areas.”
North Texas is home to some of the best and most desirable suburban communities in the country. Biden's plans are taking direct aim at stopping the very aspect that has made these communities so exemplary. As a former mayor, I know that zoning, grants and local control don't make for sexy headlines, but it is this kind of foundational planning that has empowered generations of working families with the opportunity of home ownership.
Rather than demonize and begin a federal assault against our suburban communities, we would be far better served as a nation by focusing on policies to expand generational wealth accumulation and home ownership and revitalize urban areas.
Van Duyne goes on to note that Democrats understand they don’t have a moment to spare.
“Democrats know this must be done before their own primary fights start and they find themselves back on the campaign trail trying to win over the same suburbs they desperately want to dismantle,” she adds.
“Their desire to restructure America using single-family zoning reveals clear differences between America's political parties: Republicans want you to own your home and control your money, while Democrats want to own your home and control you.”
