Who said this and When?

"When she visited the United States, the Russian human rights activist Yelena Bonner said to the American people: 'The people of the world do not want war, they want to own a house. They want to own a home. They want the decency and dignity that goes along with their own home.'

"The American dream is a universal dream. But all too often this dream of ownership, of decent and affordable housing, is being denied to first-time home buyers and low-and moderate-income families. Government rules and red tape are regulating the dream out of existence. The challenge to this Commission is to discover and to tell us how to remove those regulatory barriers."
