D.J. Tice’s St. Paul Pioneer

D.J. Tice’s St. Paul Pioneer Press column seriously examines one of the reigning shibboleths of local politics and the welfare state: “affordable housing.” His column is “It’s not a housing shortage–it’s an income shortage.” Extending the theme that Doug touces on here, I wish some public official would advise folks who cannot afford to support a family not to get married or have kids. I hear that in the old days that was the rule of thumb and that such advice was unnecessary.
