I love airbnb after the school district eliminated our after school tutoring program, my husband and I struggled to pay our car payments and insurance. Through airbnb I was able to make my insurance payment and pay for my groceries. Thank you for having a discussion about this issue. Perhaps if you politicians stop protecting big lobbyists and their corporations and white house starts taxing them corporations like you do to us the citizens that ellected you to begin with. Why don't you start having more discussions about big oil polluting our oceans. Tax oil companies like you tax me 30% and make them accountable for cleaning up the devastation under our oceans. But you won't because of the contributions you are receiving under your pacs. Yes we know all about it. Stop telling me who can I or can't host in my home. Govt out of my home, it is my privacy.
