New Kamala Harris Bill Asks Federal Taxpayers to Subsidize California's High Housing Costs Rents in California have skyrocketed over the past decade, thanks to the innumerable restrictions, taxes, and fees that the state imposes on new housing development. Now Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) wants the rest of the country to pay to fix this problem. This confused communist should step down before it's too late. This is just how communism works. Make everybody else pay for it while doing nothing. As the saying goes sooner or later you run out of other people's money. Then you end up like Venezuela and a few other Countries who did the same acts. If the people of Ca. haven't woke up yet they will once this bill takes place if it does make it through.
