Higher Housing Costs = More Affordable Housing?

Quoting SP&T:
“An alternative method to fund local affordable housing is gaining support… Board members of the Yampa Valley Housing Authority agreed Thursday to support the concept of a real estate transfer tax [essentially a sales tax on real estate transactions] to fund affordable housing”

Once again, our local Socialists (and developers seeking to free themselves from the insane shackles these idiots previous imposed upon them) are trying to tell us that increasing the cost of purchasing a home can actually make housing more “affordable”.

The bureaucrats at the tyrannically imposed Socialist Housing Authority are simply seeking to save their own illegitimate salaries. Nobody else will benefit. Everybody else will suffer. Housing prices will go even higher. And, the very tiny minority who are fool enough to purchase so-called “Affordable Housing” will remain the biggest victims of all.

Here in The People’s Socialist Republic of Steamboat Springs, the insanity never ends!
