I am disabled and can no longer work as a Nurse, I have always worked and made a good living. I am older now and even if I could work, I would have a hard time being hired anywhere because of my age! Because of Air BnB, I am able to keep my house!!! Because without Air BnB I would not be able to keep up with my mortgage payments and I would be homeless and collecting welfare. Let homeowners be! If we want to rent out a room or two so we don't have to lose everything and go on state assistance why can't we?? It's my home, I should do whatever I want to do inside it!!!
