“The US economy is teetering on the verge of a deep recession because of Biden’s tax and spend and borrow and regulate economy. Small businesses are the victims. The American Small Business Prosperity Plan by the Job Creators Network tackles these major economic failings and would expand opportunities for small biz growth and expansion. The next Congress must adopt this agenda…if we are to save our economy and the small businesses that are the fuel of our economic engine.” So said Stephen Moore, economist and co-founder Committee to Unleash Prosperity. “Small businesses are the drivers of the economy, creating two out of every three new jobs. There is no one better to get us out of this recession than them, and no one who understands them like the Job Creators Network. Their American Small Business Prosperity Plan puts small businesses at the forefront and gives Congress an outline to ensure their success will put our economy back where it belongs,” said John Motta, Chairman of the Coalition of Franchisee Associations and small business owner.

“Small businesses are the backbone of the American economy. Members of the 118th Congress should support this pro-growth policy agenda to make these small business job creators a priority. Tell your elected leaders in Washington to support it here.” Says the JCN website call to action in support of the plan.



Andy Puzder, Former CEO of CKE Restaurants, Chairman of 2ndVote Value Investments, Inc. and JCN Board Member said: “Whether the issue is growth killing taxes, over-regulation, competing with China, or the Biden administration’s manufactured energy crisis; The American Small Business Prosperity Plan covers it all. The Job Creators Network’s Plan addresses the multitude of problems facing small businesses in the Biden era, giving the incoming Congress a set of defined problems to tackle and the solutions needed to steer America back in the right direction. This the right plan at the right time.”

Other comments in support of “The American Small Business Prosperity Plan” offered by the Job Creators Network (JCN) – with the endorsement of lawmakers, business, and nonprofit leaders – are found in their document found as a download linked here. Among those backing the plan is Representative Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), Speaker of the House: “House Republicans are eager to work with Job Creators Network and the small business community on the American Small Business Prosperity Plan to reignite the American economy and American Dream. Small businesses were decimated by the Covid-19 pandemic and onerous government restrictions on business activity. The commonsense provisions in the Prosperity Plan can help bring small businesses back.”

Part II. Additional Information with More MHProNews Analysis and Commentary in Brief


With respect to JCN’s focus on regulatory and tax relief, they are not alone. The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) holds similar views.

Videos by NFIB Reflect Desire by Small Business Owners for Antitrust – or anti-Monopoly – Action and Why it Matters to Manufactured Home Community Residents and New Manufactured Homes Shoppers

Editorially, MHProNews and MHLivingNews have long supported the principles of limiting regulations, taxes, and government overreach as historically proven methods for authentic economic progress, i.e. ‘American Prosperity.’

In support of those efforts, MHProNews has routinely spotlighted the work of voices inside and outside of manufactured housing.  There are thoughtful statements made by people that span the left-right divide.

Among them are the smaller independent producers at the Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform (MHARR). As their name implies, they too favor the notion that effective regulations doesn’t require or mean over-regulation. Studies and experts have pointed out that regulations are more harmful to smaller businesses than bigger ones.  For instance, the graphic below, produced by the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM), was uploaded on MHProNews on September 28, 2018.

Several of the ‘barriers’ to manufactured housing are aptly identified as falling under the ‘regulatory’ umbrella. For instance, MHProNews/MHLivingNews has periodically pointed to an Obama-Biden Administration research report commissioned by HUD’s Policy Development and Research (PD&R) document. Put differently, even a Democratic Administration has in principle said something similar to what JCN or MHARR have been calling for over the years.


RegulatoryBarrierstoManufacturedHousingPlacementinUrbanCommunitiesHUDPDR-postedManufacturedHomeLivingNews595x357 (1)
What the HUD PD&R screen capture – with linked download available below – reflects is a lack of understanding about how enhanced preemption could solve the affordable housing crisis using mostly private capital. The research is useful, but adding in the missing ingredient of enhanced preemption would make it priceless. This graphic above was uploaded on February 20, 2018. 


Another HUD research report, published during the Biden era, is found linked below.




MHARR President and CEO, Mark Weiss, J.D., has said for years that the manufactured home industry was being artificially limited in what he called a “shell game” “on steroids.” See the exclusive MHProNews interview linked below.




Besides long festering throttles to manufactured housing in the finance and zoning/placement arenas, are the looming threats of the Department of Energy (DOE) rule – which the Texas Manufactured Housing Association (TMHA), what the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) calls an “affiliate” – implied was a fait accompli.


‘Manufactured Housing Closes Year on Cool Note, But Optimism Grows for 2023’ Says TRERC, But TMHA VP Rob Ripperda Lets Cat Out of Proverbial Bag, Exposing MHI; plus MHVille Market, Stocks Update

MHI Owes the Manufactured Home Industry an Explanation and a Lawsuit – the Need to Stop Destructive Energy Regulations of Manufactured Housing


On paper to the uninformed, MHI may appear to say similar things as MHARR. But upon closer examination, MHI’s behavior (see the evidence in the reports linked above and below) is actually an apparent de facto sly support of more regulations. If so, then they are arguably paltering, posturing, and deploying “deception and misdirection” in action.  But that take on MHI’s behavior wouldn’t be a surprise to Carol Roth, who flatly stated that big business secretly loves regulations because it harms smaller businesses.


MHI v MHARR Pushback on HUD ‘Unnecessary’ ‘High Cost’ Fire Sprinkler Plan Since Data Says Manufactured Homes ‘As Safe or Safer Than Site-Built Housing’–Multi Unit Drama; plus MHVille REITs, Stocks Update

Both regulations and taxes are barriers for smaller firms that are more easily navigated by larger firms.


When MHI, or their attorneys, are asked to respond to such concerns, they may acknowledge the receipt of the inquiry, but they have in recent years failed to respond to thorny, evidence-based, and substantive concerns posed to their staff and corporate leadership.

If MHI occasionally accomplished something (not a photo op, not a video opportunity, but an actual forward movement (resulting in fewer harmful regulations, the enforcement of things that MHI claims and MHARR supports, and more sales, then MHI’s position might have some credibility. But roughly since the Berkshire Hathaway era of manufactured housing industry history, what has in fact occurred is the biggest fall in production since the earliest day of the mobile home industry over 50 years ago. That’s simply a thorny but accurate description of the facts.

See his context and the full ‘debate’ context in the report, linked here. https://www.manufacturedhomepronews.com/epic-kevin-clayton-moat-rant-analysis-lesli-gooch-debate-defense-doug-ryan-charge-end-clayton-monopoly-over-manufactured-housing-breaching-buffett-berkshire-clayton-monopolistic-moat-method/



MHI and their leaders can’t have it both ways.  The remarks by prior MHI chairman, Tim Williams (Berkshire Hathaway owned 21st Mortgage Corp, a Clayton Homes affiliate) contradict Gooch’s self-proclaimed ‘disappointment.’



Examples found in the three linked reports above indicate that MHI, their staff and corporate leaders, has been caught in self-contradictory behaviors and remarks.  Are serious thinkers really going to believe that Warren Buffett can’t get the FHFA, HUD/FHA, or the GSEs to do what federal law requires?




The fact that their attorneys don’t push back on that claim can be understood by objective thinkers as a silent admission.  The facts from production data speak for themselves.  What they say doesn’t lead clear thinkers who want the truth to have confidence in MHI’s ability – and/or desire – do deliver for ‘all segments’ of manufactured housing, as they claim.

SandyGarrettJdChiefDisciplinaryCounselTBPR.orgSupreme CourtTennesseeTom HodgesJd; HowManufacturedHousing CouldAchieve HigherSales, ProfitsSundayWeeklyHeadlinesRecapMHProNews


MHI’s corporate leaders can’t have it both ways.





A fair reading of this comment by outside MHI attorney David Goch, J.D., is that MHI and their counsel have read what we’ve published, and they do not constitute ‘wrongful disparagement’ of their “organization.”  We’ve asked them to respond to such reports. Silence.

Goch is a paid mouthpiece for MHI. This pull quote from a letter from Goch is fascinating. On the one hand, Goch says that MHI is working for the interests of all and wants all points of view. But then, Goch threatens in writing a then MHI member who dared question the association. They cannot have it both ways. Part of the irony is that in hindsight, as the evidence mounts, it becomes obvious that MHI has postured efforts for almost 20 years, since the start of the Berkshire era of manufactured housing began. Coincidence? Or just part of a broader plan that has benefited a few at great cost and harm to the many? https://www.manufacturedhomepronews.com/manufactured-housing-institute-mhi-outside-attorney-david-gochs-statement-to-angry-threatening-member-speaks-volumes-plus-sunday-weekly-mhville-headlines-in-review/



Facts and Analysis in Brief. At about 3:30 AM on 2.15.2023, roughly 1o hours after the report and analysis above was drafted, MHProNews was notified of the following.


The Manufactured Housing Institute et al v. The United States Department of Energy et al


The Manufactured Housing Institute and Texas Manufactured Housing Association filed a lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Energy on Tuesday in Texas Western District Court. The suit, brought by Maynard Cooper & Gale and Simpson McMahan Glick & Burford, challenges energy standards promulgated by the department last year. The case is 1:23-cv-00174, Manufactured Housing Institute et al. v. United States Department of Energy et al. ##


Commentary and Analysis in Brief: after months of MHARR, MHProNews, and MHLivingNews highlighting this issue and the need for MHI to act by filing suit, MHI and their attorneys have consistently declined comment on the need for MHI to sue. At first blush, this suit by MHI with the TMHA may be promising. As the maxim goes, the devil is in the details. The question now becomes: is this suit sincere, or is it more MHI posturing designed to fail?

MHProNews will continue to monitor and report on this case and the other topics covered herein as is deemed warranted. If MHI’s corporate and staff leadership should deign to come off their high horse and decide to issue a statement (or better yet, respond to previous inquiries) to MHProNews, count on us to provide such in put along with our expert analysis and commentary.

Another question that this MHI-DOE suit now raises is this. Now that MHI is finally using their legal resources, will they do so on the other issues reported on above? The MHIA and ‘enhanced preemption? DTS to get a level playing field with the GSEs for manufactured home chattel (personal property, home only) financing? Will they begin to do an authentic image/education program, or will they continue with fig leaf efforts and their inane CrossMods scheme?

At a minimum, MHARR merits credit for highlighting this issue and others consistently and persistently. They are to be applauded for their consistency and honorable efforts. See the report linked here, among others.

Trade media can and should be a ‘cheer leader’ when it is appropriate to do so. But authentic trade media also holds the powers that be to account. Who says? The American Press Institute.
