It should be one of the Government top priority to help lower income families afford housing. Owning a house is no longer becoming the normal in the US but a dream. The Government should have programs to help people obtain the dream of owning a home. There should be more programs to make it easier and also help them learn the knowledge needed in buying a home and also maintaining one.
With companies holding so much sway in the decisions of the government, I think it is only fair for the government to provide subsidies to help low income families with housing. People who are making low incomes are working at places like Walmart and McDonalds. These companies take without giving back. The government should do more to control their business practices and make them more socially responsible. Until the government does that, people will need help with everyday expenses.
No, the government should not provide subsidies to help low income families with housing, because the money has to come from somewhere. That "somewhere" is taxation. All taxation is theft. It is coercion and it is a crime. There is nothing special about government's theft that makes it morally acceptable compared to ordinary theft.
No, the government should not provide subsidies to help low income families with housing, because there are private charities that should be doing that. The government cannot help everyone efficiently. Charities can do a better job of monitoring who is just trying to take advantage of the system and who really needs help.
