    FFX Subsidized Housing Tenants Live Large On Your Dime

    by Mark Weaver
    WMAL.com
    FAIRFAX, Va. -- Resort-style swimming pools with fountains and heated spas, billiards rooms, granite counter tops, ceramic tile, indoor basketball courts, stainless steel appliances -- many Fairfax County taxpayers cannot afford such luxuries. But they are paying for these amenities for use by low-income residents who live in subsidized housing in affluent neighborhoods.

    "If the occupants of these homes improve their lives financially, they will be forced to move out. And the housing they could afford without the taxpayer subsidy is well below the quality of these homes," he said.

    That last part is the most important point made. I say sell the units and quit subsidizing folks like this. I believe this is a perfect example of using tax payer funds to bribe folks for votes.

    Is it bad that I read FFX as Final Fantasy 10?

    Yes, because that game was horrible.

    I like the subsidized housing here in Cheyenne. It is safe, clean, and efficient... and absolutely nothing else.

    Rather have subsidies and controlled housing than give millionaires tax breaks on private planes and bankers the ability to avoid paying taxes.

    What right do those poor folks have to the rich folks money? Because you feel sorry for them?

    Can I come take $40 out of your bank account then? I could use some cash.
