The biggest threat to family values

Is it homosexuality? Is it low-divorce rate/gay marriage Massachusetts? Is it terrorism? Is it Hillary Clinton?

No. It's lack of affordable housing... for the middle class.

Note, not the lower class. The middle class. Some folks can make upwards of $60,000 a year or more and still feel poor.

How's the American Dream supposed to be played out in an apartment? My wife and I cannot afford to buy a house in my hometown of Fredericksburg, VA... or for that matter, 20 miles away is too expensive. And we're not poor by any stretch.

How do we allow families to make agonizing choices such as "Do we spend half our income on housing at the price of savings and vacation?... Or do we move an hour out of town and force working parents to spend more time away from family just to survive?"

Homosexuality does not affect my family on a day-to-day basis. This issue does.

10 bucks on which one has most Christians all worked up about...
