During the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) oversight hearing, House Representative Maxine Waters claimed that housing is a “necessary human right.” She said, “Housing is the foundation on which our entire society is built. It is a platform for economic mobility and well-being. It is a crucial part of our national economy. It is a necessary human right.”This goes along with the popular democratic claim that healthcare is also a human right.In a perfect world, yes, everyone would have housing and healthcare. However, we do not live in a utopian society and stuff isn’t just free! Someone, somewhere along the time has to pay for it.
