The mortgage holders, including small time landlords with a few rentals, thought they would one day really own their homes. Corona Virus wreaked economic havoc on the middle class and renters who supported the petty rentiers that owned the homes that the working poor lived in. The conservatives in government refused to appropriate the money or do anything to help Americans keep the housing, rented or "owned," from being taken by foreclosure.
At the same time the banks and other financial parasites could borrow as much as needed from the FED at low to no interest and use it to buy the foreclosed homes. Anyone could have predicted the outcome but no one with a voice that can be heard did so in 2020, when we all went down. All downed but the Wall St. Oligarchs and bankers that is.
The saddest story is the children of the poor who descended to homelessness. But the most tragic is the libertarian wannabe entrepreneur landlords who managed to evict them and then lost their properties anyway because there was no one to rent them and keep up the mortgage payments. Those losers probably never connected the works of Trump, McConnell and Mnuchin to their losses and still believe Republicans and other conservative/libertarians serve their interests, not just those of the rich parasites that bought the foreclosed land and houses.
And that's how slavery of the majority was accomplished in Trump's America. Now we do what we're told by the Wall St Oligarchs, if we want a place to live and food to eat. The majority still don't realize that we're slaves. Many of them are still good Republicans, even though governments and the outcome of elections have become irrelevant.
