The United for Homes (UFH) Campaign released a video on May 14 titled “The MIDotaur Show: Mythbusting in the Morning.” The video is a humorous, mock interview that debunks many commonly held misconceptions about the mortgage interest deduction (MID). NLIHC President and CEO Sheila Crowley provides facts about the MID as she is interviewed by a talk show host who is the mythical Minotaur.
The video reinforces the message that the MID is poorly targeted, regressive, expensive, and inefficient. The video offers MID information in a playful manner in order to gain the attention of a broader audience. Advocates are encouraged to share the video through social media.
