I can see the point of saying that people who can't afford to live close to city centers should move to where housing is more affordable - you know, all those neighborhoods with the skeery crime and poor if any grocery stores and long commutes to the city centers where jobs are.

I would venture that probably, these comments are coming from the exact same people that complain about the city's traffic problem, since in a lot of the "affordable" exurbs, access to public transportation cannot always be described as convenient. Frequently, you need a car.

And that's ignoring the price premium to clean up the inevitable property crime, cost of additional transportation, and limited other services. You know, like decent school systems, which we all pay for over the long run.

No, the government is not "obligated" to provide a damn thing. At the same time, it's short sighted to insist on just exiling those that make under six figures - including a large portion of the city's service staff that us rich people rely on.
