Control of Rents and 'Perverted' Subsidies

August 17, 1986

Sam Hall Kaplan's comments on Santa Monica (Aug. 10) sounded more like sour grapes than anything. Kaplan complains that "yuppies" receive rent subsidies under a "perverted rent control."

Well, Sam, we all look forward to your exploration of all the other "perverted" subsidies--like those for mortgage interest and property taxes, as well as the post-Proposition 13 property owners who are subsidizing those who are paying 1975-valuation taxes.
