Biden's Housing Socialism 101

Republican lawmakers are expressing their disdain and opposition towards the announcement by the Biden administration that those individual homeowners with lower credit scores will be rewarded while penalizing those with higher FICO scores. Lawmakers say this is a terrible housing proposal.

“The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA), which oversees the majority of mortgages in the United States announced that those with a FICO credit score below 620 will receive a discount on their fees, while simultaneously granting a monthly fee on those with a credit score higher than 740.” (Source-The Floridian)

Other lawmakers like Reps. Brian Mast and Greg Steube went as far as to call the move nothing less than an economy-damaging “major step towards socialism.”

FIU Continues Excelling

Florida International University (FIU) will hold another graduation ceremony today, where students who achieved the daunting task of completing a Master’s degree will be afforded the opportunity to walk the stage and receive their diploma.

A record number of graduates will be receiving diplomas.

On a personal note, Mrs. Manjarres will be walking the stage today in South Miami. It is fair to say that her diploma aged Publisher Javier Manjarres by at least 20 years. At least! Ahahahaha


Shevrin “Shev” Jones-I wrote this book in the 5th grade for a writing contest. I made mention of it in my debate on the @FLSenate

floor today. I look forward to the day where we all can grab our bag of good will and spread it. Call me crazy, but I’m crazy enough to believe that it’s possible.

Rep. Cory Mills -I’m proud to introduce the Reinforcing Sanctions on Iranian Terrorists Act to codify sanctions against Mahan Air, an Iranian airline that has been proven to be integral to the IRGC’s terrorist activities.

I will work to ensure authoritarian regimes do not go unchecked.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz-Sadly, this is just the latest in a long line of repulsive policies & statements that Florida Republicans aimed at the LGBTQ+ community. The hate being spread by FLA extremists is shameful.

Christopher F. Rufo -BREAKING: The Florida State Senate has passed a bill that would abolish the DEI bureaucracies at all public universities statewide.

We are one step closer to reversing the forces of ideological capture and restoring the principle of colorblind equality to our institutions.
