630 WMAL: Stimulating Talk Breaking Newsby Mark Weaver
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.
