Successful Democratic Blogger Can't Afford Blue State
"So I'm getting a little frustrated with the Bay Area real estate market, and for the first time in years I'm casting about the rest of the nation to see if there's anywhere else where I could possibly live."How about Leadville, Colorado? Or maybe Rifle in the same state? This is really ironic, a collectivist who supports a party that promotes Fannie Mae,Freddie Mac, land-use restrictions, zoning, open space laws, and unions is unable to buy a house in the [soviet] of Northern Kalifornia. All this from a guy who [claims to have] a law degree.What is it about Blue America that hates people that aren't rich??? Attention Markos Moulitsas Zúniga :did it ever occur to many in Blue state America that Houston(that doesn't have zoning) is a lot more affordable than let's say Berkeley,California.Also,Houston residents don't have a state income tax that they are paying.It appears Kos can't afford the very values he promotes,which is regulation of markets which leads to artificially high real estate prices.
