    Rep. Elect Kat Cammack: ‘Only in America’ Could I Go from Homelessness to Congress

    Rep.-elect Kat Cammack (R-FL) told Breitbart News on Tuesday that her election to the House of Representatives after a period of time in which she was homeless illustrates the American Dream.

    “Just nine years ago, I was homeless, and only in America can someone go from being homeless to the House of Representatives in less than nine years,” Cammack said on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow.

    Cammack continued, “I ended up getting involved [in politics] when in 2011 an Obama era housing program took away our family’s cattle ranch out west, and after being homeless for several months, I made the life decision get involved rather than take over the family business, which had been my plan all along.”

    Cammack emphasized the power of agency while recalling that she slept in her car while homeless.

    “I remember so distinctly, thinking I’m never going to be in this position again,” Cammack shared. “I don’t have to get depressed or sad about this, because life is about choices, and I’m making a choice that is going to be better for me tomorrow, and keep on going, and that’s how you pull yourself up from your bootstraps.”

    Cammack identified the the Obama administration’s Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP) as an impetus for her political involvement.

    “The turning point was in April 2011, when … my mom she got the call that we had 23 days to evict, and the Obama initiative which was the HAMP program, his signature housing program, which no one actually signed up to be a part of, ” Cammack stated.

    Cammack said HAMP enabled banks to abandon some loans in order to receive federal tax credits. “About seven million people lost their homes under that program, ” she noted, “and very few legislators [and] leaders were vocal about the failure of this program. It just blew my mind. The older I got, the more I realized how swampy and disgusting this type of legislation was. Republicans and Democrats were complicit in this.”

    Cammack described herself as an “America First” Republican and “constitutional conservative.”

    The choice between President Donald Trump and Joe Biden amounted to a decision between “America versus socialism,” she assessed.

    “We are really at that point where we can either continue to keep our head in the sand and become a socialist nation, or we fight back and make this an America First policy-driven Congress that’s focused on the home front,” Cammack remarked.

    Cammack, at 32, is the youngest Republican woman elected to Congress.

    Another of the positive aspects of our otherwise messed up political system, Trump's disruptive role in GOP may have enabled this also. Usually you'ds see a (D) next to such candidates.
    If Biden and his string pullers do a quarter of what they claim they are going to do, I would expect Congress to "flip" substantially in 2022.

    Looking forward to seeing what she'll be able to do for us.
