Today’s news:

Oust rich from rent-regulated apts.

Tenant associations are complaining about the fact that there are people who want to remove the rent regulation that allows apartments to be decontrolled when the rent goes over $2,000 a month and the tenant earns $175,000 a year for two years running.

How many poor and middle-class people do you know who pay $2,000 a month rent and earn $175,000 a year for two years in a row? If the wealthy people occupying these rentals are tossed out, it will allow for others to rent the premises.
