Democrats have had opportunities to affect housing since Reagan era

HINSDALE, N.H. — Nancy Braus seeks to blame Ronald Reagan for the current housing situation, from unaffordability to lack of options.

Haven't we had some Democratic party presidents since Reagan? Haven't Democrats had control of the House and Senate at times since Reagan was president? Don't Democrats run any states, or cities, where, presumably, they have "fixed" the housing problem?

In Vermont, the Democratic Party has complete control of the Legislature, yet Vermont has the second-highest homeless population per capita, second only to California, also controlled by Democrats.

This clearly isn't a problem that will be solved by either political party.
