Friday’s Government Reports Roundup

By Jamila Moore

  • This past week, the nation celebrated the National Housing Week of Action. Congressmen and housing activists gathered on Capitol Hill to shed light on the nation’s current housing issues. The gatherers specifically sought funds for additional investments in housing for low-income families.
  • The Affordable Care Act has yet to be repealed. Members of Congress presented yet another iteration to repeal the act; however, their efforts failed to persuade the members of the Senate. The proposed repeal, if approved, would end the mandate that most Americans pay for their medical coverage. Further, individuals purchasing their own insurance would see a 20% increase in the price of their premiums.
