In expensive ZIP codes, Castro’s plan — which requires no congressional approval — would more than double the standard subsidy, while also covering utilities. At the same time, he intends to reduce subsidies for those who choose to stay in housing in poor urban areas, such as Brooklyn. So Section 8 tenants won’t just be pulled to the suburbs, they’ll be pushed there.
Twenty-first century Negro removal.
Brooklyn won’t be a poor urban area for long. It will soon be a very expensive urban area.
Dubuque, Iowa, for example, received an influx of voucher holders from projects in Chicago — and it’s had a problem with crime ever since. A recent study linked Dubuque’s crime wave directly to Section 8 housing.
Fewer problems with crime around where the Cabrini-Greens used to be, coincidentally.
Now Dallas has one of the highest murder rates in the nation, and recently had to call in state troopers to help police control it. For the first time, violent crime has shifted to the tony bedroom communities north of the city. Three suburbs that have seen the most Section 8 transfers — Frisco, Plano and McKinney — have suffered unprecedented spikes in rapes, assaults and break-ins, including home invasions.
Yeah, so? Dallas itself is becoming more arty-farty and SWPL-y.
Ironically, Hillary’s own hometown of Chappaqua is fighting Section 8 housing because of links to drugs and crime and other problems.
Why do you think HRC’s national campaign office is in Brooklyn?
The problem with most news and commentary about this matter, even from, (or especially from), mainstream conservatives, is that they don’t see the cui bono aspect, they don’t see who benefits, and therefore they don’t have the ability to finger any suspects.
Oh, and one more thing. It goes under the “Why I’m #NRx” file — Notice that the plan “requires no Congressional approval.” Time was not so long ago that anything close to a significant change in domestic policy required Congressional approval. But, just as power has already accumulated around the Presidential center for military, foreign policy and diplomatic affairs for the purposes of “national security,” so is it also in domestic affairs, because equality and civil rights and social justice. Far from the success of the Trump campaign knocking me off my #NRx game, it actually proves why #NRx is right for two reasons: One, he’s an aberration, one of the few billionaires who is concerned about something other than himself and is willing to break with the rigid selfish class discipline of the billionaire class in order to be at least a wee bit patriotic, and two, the fact that he needed to do that proves the long term fool’s errand of democratic republicanism. For my money, for all I could care, he could win, get in the White House, rip up the Constitution (which, as you can see from reading articles like these, would be redundant), and declare himself king. (Then set up a King Lear scenario where he has to pick between Junior, Eric and Ivanka to succeed him upon his death or incapacitation.)
