: You hit the nail right on the head.
But here's were I disagree:
In order to correct the inequities in the system, the only FAIR way is to make rent sablization income dependant, For example why should people who make $150,000 a year still get rent stabilization??? I mean even if you make $75,000 that should be enough income for any Bank to give you a mortgage and BUY an apartment!!!
What this system does is pit people against each other, instead of doing what most Americans want.... to OWN not RENT a piece of America!!! So $75,000 is a fair cutoff point $50,000 would be better,
that would end your stabilization...and you will either pay higher rent, move or BUY!!!
I made a whopping $26K last year as a paralegal, I deserve a decent rent, so I can save for a down payment in 5 years...
I dont want to rent the rest of my life and be at the mercy of a shitty landlord, or if an appliance breaks,
he refuses to fix it and he refuses to let me buy my own.......But a decent rent would allow us to save the $10,or 20,000 needed down payment
to buy anything...
