Something local we can discuss and MAYBE be able to make a difference. Home rental.

    We could regulate standards. We could regulate price. We could regulate both. The less government interference, the better as far as I'm concerned. If we try to regulate both, homelessness will rise. Because we can't regulate cost. The way it works is you get what you pay for. People who are responsible for themselves tend to discriminate between wants and needs. Take care of the needs first, food, shelter, basic transportation, basic insurance. When the needs are covered, then go for the wants like tv, cable, cellphone, eating out, etc. When people have more wants than they can afford the options are to keep wanting or generate more income. The taxpayer can not be expected to provide the same standard of living to those that can't or won't work as people who do can provide for themselves.
