“you assume everyone is buying a house today to rent.”

demockracy on Dec 9, 2013 at 13:28:09

“I assume every landlord owns the property s/he's renting to tenants. Very unusual for landlords to sublet after leasing property. Actually in any case, the purchase price of the property plays a significant role in determining rents charged.”

“i dont disagree with that, but we are talking rent, not housing prices. landlords still have to pay the taxes.”

demockracy on Dec 9, 2013 at 12:38:22

“Landlords still have to purchase the house, and that purchase price influences the rent charged. Land taxes prevent holding land off the market (cheaply) to speculate. The evidence is that higher land taxes actually lead to lower housing prices. Again, the footnotes are at realestate4ransom.com.”

“lets see, local governments get their increased tax revenues from over inflated values on housing...landlords pay these higher taxes. its no secret why rent is high. for every dollar i get on a rental property, about .05 cents goes to local taxes, .05 goes to insurance, .30 or so to federal income taxes, .05 to state income taxes, and i get to keep around 1/2 of my tenants rent. at some lower amount it makes it not worth the hassle of nagging someone for my rent.”

“Real estate taxes actually lower housing prices. See realestate4ransom.com and watch the video.”

“Using a statistical extrapolation of
survey results, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimated that Medicaid
enrollees have an ED utilization rate almost double the utilization rates of Medicare and
uninsured populations and almost quadruple the rate of the private insurance population
(Figure 1). 1 Furthering understanding and addressing this differential has the potential to
improve quality of care, reduce unnecessary costs, and promote a more efficient use of health
care resources.”

“I'm telling you that when the poor get free or subsidized insurance they drop the ERs like a hot potato and shift to early detection and prevention. I watched as 100% of Hawaii's poor went through this very process.

Expanded Mediciad gives free or subsidized insurance to the poor. And, the minute they get it they are done with ERs. AND THAT IS REALITY !!!”

“We have been paying for this free lunch.....THROUGH THE NOSE....by forcing our poor to use the world's most expensive and least effective healthcare in our ERs.
