Do we have any information on changes that could be made to the Mortgage Interest Tax Deduction that could off set the cost of this credit?

We just met with Bennet's office last week here in CO, they spoke of his Real Deal (https://michaelbennet.com/realdeal/) - can you speak to how the renters tax credit might enhance or be different then his Real Deal? We are still educating ourselves on the plan.

Question: Are y’all engaging with the Housing policies around the Green New Deal at all to connect the issues?
Edgar M Greville
01:10:53
Can anything be done about predatory speculation in the housing market driving up prices?

when the state, like Minnesota, has an already-existing rent credit, is this redundant and bad or good?
Lynne
01:12:11
I live in CA, where state and local government is focusing on homelessness…. My question is WHAT STATE OR LOCAL POLICIES will fit most seamlessly WITH THESE FEDERAL PROPOSALS?

Willie D. We met with Congresswoman Suzan DelBene, talked about a renters tax credit, this is at least the second time I have talked to her in person about it, she hears, but in my opinion, like Senator Cantwell, doesn’t really see the importance of an RTC. Who are the champions on this beyond those on the bill? that might talk with fellow members like ours, so they really get it?

Think about inviting your local clergy to the meeting . Even though Saturday is the Jewish Sabbath I am going to invite the Rabbis from my congregation as well as staff there and the clergy from the local mosque and two churches near my home

Aa Health Care Professional it is important not to panic and spread panic. the mortality rate for this virus is very low actually and typical precautions like washing your hands , avoiding crowds if you are ill, and checking with your health care professional for questions.

what is the rate of stunting in relation to maternal nutrition during pregnancy ? Seems like if mother gets sufficient nutrients she can breast feed her body for first 9 months almost exclusively - Also due to western intervention and confusing advettisments I see that some mothers are now using formula rather than breast feeding how do we reverse that trend.

That statistic saying that only 17% of kids in middle income countries get the minimum of nutrients they need...that's so startling. Can you expound on that so we're comfortable using that for lobby meetings? For instance...what are some countries in that category? Clarify the age range of kids you're talking about? Thank you.

A lot of malnutrition cases can be seen with families experiencing poverty. I have learnt in school that children and moms go undernourished because they have to go to work because they live on daily wages. When women are pregnant, they send their kids (child labor) to bring in that wage. Is USAID conducting any programs that keep kids in school and provide nutritional meals?
