    While conservatives bash and trash Seattle for having high property values, which I don't think high real estate values always such a bad thing, Seattle is trying to do something about it.

    Seattle is investing 110 million dollars to build nearly 2000 affordable housing units.

    Those buildings will include childcare and healthcare centers for seniors.

    It's easy to trash people and cities but not so easy to actually do something about it. I don't hear or read any reports of this happening in red states but then, housing and real estate isn't very expensive in red states. It's cheap to live in a red state because not many people want to live there.

    Public housing. It will deteriorate to crime ridden shit within a very few years just like public housing anywhere in the USA.

    Conservatives prefer places with zero economic activity because it's the only place they can afford to live.

    I live in Fairfax County. I can afford to live anywhere. OC is shedding conservatives these days. I guess it's too expensive.

    Bet the same contractor LA has, where it is costing over $600 grand for a container home. If not, I would bet someone’s pockets are gonna end up being lined and then will transfer a percentage of that back to some of the politicians there that helped get them approved. What do you bet?

    Another perfect example of only out for self. Don’t ever try to say you care for others not in your same financial shape.

    ------------------------------------ plus its just a drop in the bucket with 2000 units . Senior population aren't likely to trash it but the unmarried mothers , their boyfriends and growing hip hopping kids will trash it in my opinion .
