The Rent is Too Damn High. Several years ago an interesting, angry crackpot ran for governor of New York and that was his self-proclaimed political party. And I can certainly understand his stance, though it got him very few votes. He was from New York City where the rent is certainly too damn high. Sky high in fact.

But it is sky high everywhere and so are housing costs in general across the country. And it is crippling generations of millennials and Xers and Zers who cannot imagine the American dream of home ownership.

Not to mention the legions of homeless found everywhere, if you bother to look.
