If this is Tuesday, it must be Public Housing Fireworks Day.
That’s right. This Tuesday is going to be pretty intense around here.
Why the fireworks?
I just read in the Washington Post about some well- to-do people getting [tag-tec]subsidized housing[/tag-tec] in Fairfax County, VA.
I don’t know about you, but it gets my goat to see that one household featured in the article makes more than $216,000 per year and yet another is bringing in the bacon to the tune of $184,000 per year.
Come on, folks. Should these people really be getting subsidized housing from the government; namely you and me?
But I love the statement by Paula C. Sampson, director of the housing department for Fairfax.
“Public housing in Fairfax County is very nice housing. You may not want to stay in public housing in some places because it’s horrible. It’s slums. That is not the case here.”
Yeah, I guess she’s right. When you’re a subsidized [tag-ice]tenant[/tag-ice] making over $200,000 a year, you just naturally gravitate toward the nicer stuff.
But in all fairness she claims only a few [tag-self]tenants[/tag-self] are actually making these numbers.
Well, whether they come in onesies or twosies, that’s one or two too many in my book.
