Summers says a similar plan would’ve been a lot better for renters. He says the fact that Quinn didn’t consider something like that shows he isn’t thinking of people with the greatest need. Quinn says he’s working on a plan that will help renters buy a home so they can take advantage of the 500-dollar refund.
