Rent is too Damn High Party (also stylized as Rent is 2 Damn High) is a minor political party founded by New Yorker Jimmy McMillan. This party aims to lower housing costs throughout New York City where it is very expensive to live. Many of their views are Socially Democratic, such as being in favor of "free college for 8 years". The Rent is too Damn High Party also has conservative positions, such as "restoring family values". Jimmy McMillan got the chance to speak at a New York gubernatorial debate in 2010, and quite frankly stole the show that night! He "couldn't care less if you married a shoe" when speaking about same-sex marriage .
