Spreading The Wealth Around

By Greg L | 29 June 2011 | Fairfax County | 15 Comments

Fairfax County taxpayers must feel mighty proud that they’re providing these kinds of amenities for low-income residents, even if many of them can’t afford such luxury themselves. WMAL shines the light on taxpayers providing “resort-style swimming pools with fountains and heated spas, billiards rooms, granite counter tops, ceramic tile, indoor basketball courts, and stainless steel appliances” in what is a $13 million scheme to redistribute wealth in Fairfax County that is utterly mind blowing in its audacity.  This last budget cycle the Democrats on the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors insisted that taxes be raised in order to adequately fund all the important things government is doing, and in the end taxpayers end up footing the bill for luxury condo fees for low income housing.  Unreal.

I’m thinking that some change is in order here, and not the Obama kind.

    Next I’d like to see an investigation as to why people who are driving BMWs and Mercedes are getting county money to have their kids in day care. And what’s really great about all of this is that I haven’t seen my real estate taxes go down with the value of my property–which is what is paying for this crap. I’m paying more now than I was when values peaked in ‘05 and ‘06.

    Isn’t it enough that we have to pay for a network of hidden halfway houses, homeless shelters, and the transportation to get those people around the county in all of those MetroAccess and FasTrans vehicles–instead of widening two lane roads that have been congested for 15 years or doing something about all of the trailers at the schools? And instead of incurring more bond debt to pay for we really need when the County finally does do something?

    Fairfax County needs to go back about 10 days of WaPo articles to look at London, England and the issue of placing the poor in high-rent housing via vouchers…the cost of doing so is now one they can no longer pay.

    Until both democrats and republicans stop working at the wrong end of the problem in order to gain and retain voter loyalty these kinds of travesties will continue to escalate until the system comes crumbling down.

    The only effective way to deal with the cost of supporting the members of the community who cannot pay their own way is to reduce their numbers. The fast and effective way to do that is to stop funding their procreation cost and subsequent living expenses.

    Bottom line: if one cannot afford to take care of themselves to start with, the government should not rob from the rest to pay for their poor judgment.

    Require drug tests to get a welfare check, end affordable housing subsidies and requirements, and make the churches the “to go” to place for the “poor” and by all means stop giving away my hard earned money!

    Here is the liberal spin on the subject from a liberal rag:

    It’s being discussed on Fairfax Underground.

    Every day Franconia Springfield is more like the parts of Anacostia and P.G. County you stay out of. It’s like having your own getto next door. Loud noises, uncontrilable children, tresspassers, deputies serving warrants, vehicle break-ins.

    Part of this is that people who couldn’t sell their homes went to the government and applied to have their homes rented as section 8 housing. What better way to make sure you have solid, steady, on time rent check.

    This is happening all over Manassas city.

    The liberals must be laughing on the floor with all the trouble they are causing. This is why we have to support the Republicans in Congress on the deficit issue.

    Thank you Greg.

    The illegals figure out how to get by here without section 8. I make 52000 a year and I am considerd high income and have to pay for everything myself! Section 8 has destroyed many working class areas in the county, look at dale city. Build high density projects and police the hell out of them! We are killing incentive in this country period.
