Bush And Kerry Discuss Affordable Housing

President Bush and Democratic presidential hopeful Senator Kerry discuss America's affordable housing crisis.

"The debate comes at a time when many advocates and Section 8 voucher holders are immersed in a fight to stop the President's proposal to cut funding and bringing disastrous policy changes to the Housing Voucher Program... At a campaign event in Pennsylvania, a state he is working hard to win in November, President Bush visited a first-time homebuyer and talked about his attempt to increase the number of minority homeowners in America. He did not mention his voucher proposal, known as the Flexible Voucher Program."
