Our governments should invest in instant homes to address homelessness

Trump's not alone. Over a three-year period, the top 1% avoided $800 billion in taxes. That's enough to: 🎓Make public colleges tuition-free 👩‍👦‍👦Eliminate child hunger 🚰Provide clean drinking water to all 🏡End homelessnessYes. The 1% have got to pay their fair share of taxes.

You earn £82k per year. You pay £9 per month for Spotify, £10 for Netflix And £8.33 per month in your subscription to: Free healthcare Free education Properly funding the NHS Lifting children out of poverty Ending the climate crisis Ending homelessness
