Actually the RS laws are more for neighborhood stabilization and less for helping the poor. Otherwise, it actually is a subsidy system -- as the right wing claims. That's why the original RC and RS laws applied to everyone regardless of income -- until 1994 when Peter Vallone and the Democrats enacted Luxury Decontrol. What you hear about helping the poor is the mantra of entrenched activists who can't come to recognize that the Democrats screw them as much if not more than Republicans. But with that, let's drop this part of the discussion.
: Let's see, you make well over $175,000 per year, and you live in a rent stabilized apartment and you fear the rent might go up a little bit? Well welcome to the real world. Rent stabilization laws were intended to help the poor and middle class have access to affordable apartments ... NOT to benefit entrenched fat cats by helping them rent cheap apartments. As such you have no business posting on TenantNet.
