Going thru Dem presidential candidate housing platforms

Does anyone seek 2 severely regulate/ban big investors (private equity/foreign wealth) or small (flippers) that are manipulating the housing market?

Do they even provide lip-service?

#ItsTheSpeculationStupid
Let’s start w/the currently considered gold standard: @BernieSanders #HomesForAll

Sum talk a/b Wall Street investors but is his proposed solution strong enuf?

Also, he’s unfortunately in the blanket upzoning camp so w/flipper tax isn’t that 1 step fwd but 2 steps back?
.#BernieSanders2020 calls for natl rent control & that will definitely curb some speculation, but it is without vacancy control. See Oakland, San Francisco, Berkeley & Santa Monica for the effects of strong rent control without vacancy control.
