Soviet Style Housing Program Comes to LA
Since the City can't afford to buy all these condos, they can charge you $150 for the "privilege" of having the city waive this right.
The City recently started aggressively collecting this fee but not one penny has been spent towards the stated goal of providing more "affordable housing."
Now the Mayor and other left-leaning politicians actually want the City to start buying these condos and give/sell them to poor people. Ironically, one of the most liberal politicians on the City Council - Ed Reyes - sees the folly in the proposal and opposes it.
Someone needs to tell the Mayor and City Clowncilmen like Bill "Open Shirt" Rosendahl that this type of housing program has been tried before and it failed - in Russia.
