    In a gross waste of taxpayer dollars, the CHA has been subsidizing rent in luxury apartments in the most expensive neighborhoods for welfare recipients. But after all its only fair. :woot:


    Chicago’s public housing divide, a Watchdogs / BGA special report


    "The CHA pays $3,911 a month in federal funds to lease his townhouse to the woman and three others in her household, including a child under the age of 6, records show. It costs her $143 a month. Taxpayers pay the rest of the rent — $2,877

    The CHA is providing housing vouchers to more than 107,000 people in nearly 45,000 households in Chicago, most of them African-American (88%). The vouchers give them a financial hand to lease apartments and homes from private landlords in any neighborhood they choose."

    "...costing more than $47 million a month"

    Not about fair; it is about keeping democrats in power. :mad:

    Some areas though, they do get vouchers to go out and find their own apartments or houses if the landlord accepts section 8

    england does the same stupid shit. they put some dirt bags with 8 kids into some very expensive place because they apparently don't have anything else available for such large families. :jj:

    we let life long beerocrats and politician garbage make these decisions. they are never in our best interests.
