Democrats want universal housing, too

Too Much Homework
This perfectly encapsulates the Democratic mode of thinking: Expand first, explain later. Democrats know the solution before most people know there's a problem. In fact, their answer is what leads them to the question. ("Subsidized housing is urgently needed. Why? Oh, because there's an affordable housing crisis. Good, now we can start building people homes.")

By and large, Democrats know ahead of time they want to expand government, so they must go searching for crises, real or imagined, to justify their programs. Their need for crises in part explains why there always seem to be so many and why, curiously, in every case the solution is always the same: more government.
