      Nobody said "free ride".  But some assistance on the rate might be possible.  Of course, helping us all have lower property taxes would be nice, too.

      Think about what happens if we create cities that are full of only families with kids.  How's that tax burden for ya?  

      Think about what happens when we move all the seniors into to cities.  Why do those cities have to do all the senior bussing and other senior services, without the taxes?  

      I don't see where either of those things really help young professionals get cheaper housing either.

      •  more housing! (0+ / 0-)

        Of course, building more housing would alleviate these problems.  Specifically, being affordable and not having to go thru any government program or lottery to get it.  

        Perhaps all of my worries will go away next year if we have a good real estate crash.  There's already some major declines, and lots of new condo construction is going to finish with no buyers for their 1000 sq. ft. condo for $400,000.
