Skip to comments.Chicago’s public housing divide (luxury rent paid by CHA)
Posted on 03/15/2016 8:45:18 AM PDT by CreviceTool
The CHA pays him $3,911 a month in federal funds to lease his townhouse to the woman and three others in her household, including a child under the age of 6, records show. It also has been a good deal for Lais tenant. She pays no rent because, CHA officials say, she has no income. The CHA declined to identify her or other voucher clients, though it released the names of landlords. Public housing doesnt conjure images of a near-$1 million home. But the CHA foots most or all of the bill for Lais tenant and others to live in luxurious homes, even as tens of thousands of other low-income Chicagoans remain concentrated in poor, segregated areas or stuck on waiting lists to get housing assistance.

Are these generations of welfare recipients expected to pull a lever in the voting booth for a Republican?
Well that makes sense. How can she pay rent if she has no income?
Chicago’s been a democrat city for so long that everything that touches their political system is corrupt.
Nice!, if you like apartment living in a Big 'Rat Controlled City.....
That city is a cess pool.
Wow! A $4,000-a-month welfare crib. SCORE!!!
You can,t have any pudding if you dont eat your meat.
Not having to waste time commuting and going to work allows one way more time to enjoy the digs. Sounds like social justice is maximized....
Just keep (eating your peas...) paying taxes....
Put me in charge. Housing only basics. Roof, hot and cold running water and electricity. Which is way more than my mother had growing up and she did just fine. For food, state run store only, which contains only basic milk eggs, flour, beans, vegetables, and fruits, no frozen meals, no chips, no sodas, no alcohol, no tobacco. Parking lot monitored and anybody pulling up in an escalade loses benefits for a year. Anybody entering subject to breathyliser and random drug testing. I am salary and worked 300 hours over last 3 weeks, so my tolerance of how much of my time people think they are entitled to is very low
Bill Clinton said it best, the winners of life’s Lottery.
Just wait until the landlord sees the mess left behind, he will never rent to Section 8 again.
Well, as long as this type of graft is limited to Chicago—— Say what?!
I feel sorry for the Section 8 neighbors. Section 8 tenants are notorious for loud music and partying 24/7. How would you like to pay $1 million for a condo and find out that you are now living in the hood for all practical purposes?
This is really true in middle class neighborhoods. Hard working families have worked hard, climbed the ladder, and bought a house not in the projects only to have the projects move in next door. There goes your property value.
Well now that it's been explained to me, it all makes sense. Glad they broke it down and used small words.
