More Tax Money Given Away
Three days after the Chicago Housing Authority reopened its waiting list for public housing, more than 125,000 people have signed up. The number is expected to keep climbing.
The agency has waiting list spots for 40,000 people but has opened the application process to everyone until July 9, when it will conduct a lottery to determine who can stay on the list.
"I don't think this surprised us," said CHA spokeswoman Kellie O'Connell-Miller. "I think it speaks to the need of affordable housing in the city."
But hey, if you keep people dumb, poor, ignorant and tell them the government is going to solve all their problems if they keep voting for one set of politicians, what would you expect?
