Makes me wonder if it would be cheaper for government programs to offer to pay for relocation to areas with less expensive housing. There are many places with plentiful jobs and cheaper housing. I say that fully realizing not everyone wants to move, but if you’re going to take government assistance I think people ought to be willing to make some compromises since it’s a weight born by everyone.
