PORTLAND — When Oregon’s political leaders debated solutions to a housing crisis that was forcing renters from their homes and sending prices through the roof, they had a central goal in mind: avoid the fate of their neighbor to the south.
Tom C: Actually Democrats screwed lower income people right out of homes.7% cap when raises or cost of living increases are (usually) around 3%??That is NOT helping lower income families. In addition to new transportation taxes, sin taxes and gas tax??Way to go Democrats, you are screwing low income families. Guess what's next folks?! Rent subsidies to lower income families, more taxes.
Lizette Grau: Watch and see a halt to new construction.
Bonnye Spray: A Brown ruined CA and a Brown is ruining OR
Scott Young: they have programs like this in China, everyone gets a house and a job. no reason to work hard or get ahead. just be born and intilted. the government will take if you.
keeping It Real: They won’t be like CA ever!! Why? Sadly we have idiots like Harris Pelosi Feinstein’s Waters and NewSCUM!!
