Well, a lot of the home owning class doesn't like this :)
I do own a home, but I agree 100%. I'm surprised that local taxes for education has lasted this long: you'd think a constitutional challenge based on equal treatment could elimnate that -- well, maybe not now with a Trump-packed court, but could have.
Getting rid of that inequity would help, but the resistance to rent control and unions is a sad commentary on the American public.
A UBI strongly tied to cost inflation of basic needs--food, shelter, water, medical care-- might be an answer?
