Here’s how it works:
Democrats create a problem through overregulation and government control.
The problem causes the cost of something to rise.
So Democrats decide the way to solve the problem is through regulation and government control.
The solution causes the cost of something to rise even more.
Lather, rinse, repeat.
This is what happened with Obamacare.
Healthcare costs too much largely because of overregulation and government control.
The Democrats decide to make healthcare “affordable” by increasing overregulation and government control.
The “affordable” healthcare causes prices to skyrocket.
And now this losing formula is being advanced once again by Kamala Harris. This time to make rent “affordable” in those housing-strapped enclaves in California.
California’s housing crisis was caused largely by government regulation that so restricts the ability of anyone to build housing. This caused a housing shortage. Which, in turn, forced housing costs through the roof.
But rather than urge California to dial back the regulations that caused the housing shortage to begin with, Kamala believes the solution is to force taxpayers throughout the country to pay a rent subsidy to those who can’t afford California’s onerous rent.
It’s the stupidest idea since Obamacare.
Every time the government subsidizes something, the cost increases.
And here’s why.
There’s no motivation to make rent affordable when the landlord knows that the government that made the rents so expensive to begin with will cover the costs by way of a taxpayer confiscated subsidy.
It happens all the time.
Look at the student loan situation.
The Federal Government guarantees student loans which mean even if someone can’t afford to pay it back, that loan will be guaranteed by taxpayers.
Therefore colleges and universities have zero motivation to make tuition affordable. They can keep jacking up the costs of college knowing full well they’ll get their money.
Thanks to the American taxpayers.
This Obamacare for Rent is an idea so stupid only Kamala Harris would think it made sense.
What never occurs to her – or any Democrat for that matter – is the idea of not spending more than you can afford.
But the other thing that never occurs to someone like Kamala Harris is tracking the cause of the problem.
She never asks herself “Gosh, why is it housing costs in California are so damn high?”
Because if she did, she’d be forced to acknowledge that it is government regulation and control that causes it.
This is the problem with Democrats. They cause a problem then decide the solution to the problem is double down on the things that caused the problem to being with.
And the end result is always the same.
The problem ends up costing people more after the Democrats attempt to “solve” it.
Because at the end of the day, Democrats don’t want to solve the problem.
What they want is redistribution of wealth.
And that is at the heart of every single one of these schemes.
In fact, Kamala pretty much acknowledges that her Obamacare for Rent is about redistribution.
Under the Rent Relief Act, anyone who spends more than 30% of their income on rent would be eligible for a federal tax credit. What would you do with that extra money in your pocket?

It’s not extra money they earn themselves. And it’s not extra money because the government is taxing them less.
That extra money in their pocket will be money that used to be in your pocket.
Like I said the other day, Democrats believe that your money doesn’t belong to you; it belongs to the government.
Obamacare charges more for the healthy in order to subsidized others. So your premium is not only paying for your insurance; it’s also covering the costs of other people’s insurance so they don’t have to pay as much.
And her nonsensical “Rent Relief Act” is Obamacare for Rent. So in addition to paying for your own housing costs, you’ll have to foot the bill for other people’s as well.
In other words, the “relief” in the Rent Relief Act is at the expense of those who will get no relief.
In fact, instead of relief, Kamala is demanding you carry more of the burden.
Democrats man. They just can’t keep their grubby fingers off of your money.
Now why on earth would anyone vote for that in 2018?
