Public Reactions to HUD Secretary Carson’s “Innovations in Housing” Promoting Manufactured Homes


HUD Secretary Ben Carson is making good on his word on May 7, 2019 to promote manufactured homes as part of his prescription for a better America.

In a video interview with right-of-center Fox Business yesterday, Secretary Carson said the following.

Fox summed the video up on their YouTube page this way, “Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson discusses how the government plans to address cost and resilience issues associated with housing.”

As a potent exercise in gauging the public response, MHProNews copied the first of several public comments that were posted on 6.3.2019, the date the video was posted.

The numbers under a name of the posted comment are the numbers of likes at about 7:57 PM ET, on 6.3.2019. There were 126 Comments posted by that time, and 4,363 views, 264 likes (thumbs up) vs. 9 thumbs down.

Max Mustermann Max, Secretary Carson’s predecessor had similarly good things to say about manufactured homes. But perhaps what would be more interesting to you is a bipartisan panel of legislators that had some potent and timely insights.

I love Ben. I hope he sticks around.

Never get tired of seeing Dr. Carson and hearing anything he has to say. Thank you.

Max Mustermann
… the very definition of a propaganda post 🙂 … no specifics … blind trust … calling to just agree 🙂

@Max Mustermann Max, it seems to me that you may not want to dig into the research that backs up his claims? Why not look at what the National Association of Realtor’s said last year?
