This blog is for real estate and I intend to keep it that way. I don’t intend to turn it into a political blog but since our government is making decisions that affect the real estate industry, I’m finding that to keep you up-to-date on the real estate industry, I should advise you of those changes that impact your ability to own and keep your home long-term. I like to read “both sides” so I can be a better informed citizen.

So far, I’ve found a couple links … I’m sure there will be more, and as I find them I’ll add them here.
Here is an interactive map from the New York Times of how the Representatives voted by state. You can click over the map to see how your representative voted.
