It is not only NOT affordable but the down payment presents problems along with unemployment and so-so wages. No easy answers but doable still

Owning a home. according to the text, is an ELEMENT of the American Dream, not the dream.

Unless the proclamation was accompanied by a check, I would expect no changes.
