Another way for obozo to screw working white people. He hates us more than anything in the world.

Government pays to house poor in luxury apartments with pools wine cellars WashingtonExaminer.com

Verde Point is a self-described "luxury apartment" complex with a rooftop pool and "personal wine storage" that is currently accepting public housing assistance recipients who will live there practically for free, courtesy of the taxpayers — at least until they become gainfully employed and their incomes rise. That's when the pool parties and wine tastings end and they will have to downgrade to a more middle-class abode.

The Gramercy is another luxury apartment, also in Arlington, Va., where holders of the federal vouchers formerly known as Section 8 can live, taking advantage of its "massage room and sauna" and "clubroom with bar." Also included, according to its promotional materials, are a "first-class sports club," "theater/screening room," and computer room.

"Someone will actually come and do a manicure right in your home," its promotional video says, adding that the units have "Berber carpet, GE stainless steel appliances, granite countertops." There are 20 residences at the Gramercy set aside as "affordable," and where Section 8 can be used.


The Gramercy
As with those at Verde Point, federally-subsidized Gramercy residents can face the unpleasant choice between living in luxury on public assistance or getting a job and having to move to a neighborhood with far fewer amenities

Last summer I stayed 3 days at the Holiday Inn in Gaithersburg, MD. I noticed what looked like homeless people hanging around and inside the hotel. I know hotel staff generally tell the people to move on but not these. They were bumming money and cigarettes from me and later I went to the desk and asked WTF was going on.I was informed that they were Section 8 people from downtown DC and they were staying in the Holiday Inn until they could get housing in Germantown about 2 miles away. A few of them had been there for 6 months. At breakfast time they all had breakfast coupons,paid for by the tax payer. My breakfast ticket cost $12 and the room was $140. Jesus, what a racket and the taxpayer gets screwed.
