Oh good grief! You would think this article is solely about the poor and low-income folk.

There is now a pattern here that whenever "affordable" is mentioned, here comes the "poor, low-income" talking points.

Since I actually live in the area some of you are suggesting people should move to if they want cheap housing, I'll offer this about the "affordable options." Right now, there are townhome condo's selling for 385k. However, if you qualify (make less than 80 or 85k) under their "affordable housing" program, the same home will cost around 320k.

For some, 380 is way to high to afford, especially if they live alone. But 320 just might be more manageable.

Is this an example of an "affordable housing" option or am I just making this up? And if so, what exactly does that have to do w/low-income and the poor...who couldn't afford either option?
