Airbnb's service has saved my very existence. Without it, I would have been unable to pay my mortgage, and lost my house. I can now pay my utility bills, put food on the table, and survive. Their service is top notch, draws quality renters/guests, and allows for a streamlined process. It pumps revenue into our local economy, and helps local businesses thrive. It benefits EVERYONE! Most importantly, it keeps people from losing their homes, which reduces foreclosures, thereby benefitting the housing economy. Please do not tamper with a service that is helping homeowners all across the country! It saved my life, and continues to be critical to my very survival. Thank you.
