Fox News host Tucker Carlson said, “Gavin Newsom turns the state of California into a swamp” in “Tucker Carlson Tonight”.
TUCKER CARLSON: On top of all of California’s other problems, house prices there are higher than anywhere in the country. The median price of homes in the state of California is now over $ 800,000, more than double the national median. In recent years, because this is really a problem, California officials have passed dozens of bills that they believe would solve the problem. Governor Jerry Brown, the last guy, signed 15 housing bills in 2017. Last year, Gavin Newsom signed 18 separate housing bills. Were they working? Not at all. They didn’t work for the people who live in California. But they weren’t meant for people who wanted to buy houses. Instead, these bills had one goal: to destroy suburban homes and replace them with very dense housing. Real estate developers make more money when they are single–family homes are leveled and replaced with apartment complexes, obviously. And real estate developers are the biggest donors to the California Democratic Party, and in particular to Gavin Newsom.
Real estate development firm Marcus was one of Newsom’s biggest donors in recent recall elections. This week, after surviving the recall, Gavin Newsom tragically rewarded these real estate developers with the biggest housing bill on record. Newsom has just signed a series of bills, SB9 and SB10, which will abolish the suburbs of the state of California. The state that invented the suburbs. These bills have been approved by the California Building Industry Association, which represents, I quote, “the interests of builders and developers of real estate and commercial projects. They are poised to become many new commercial projects in the suburbs. from California. ” As the New York Times said, I quote, “SB9 essentially ends single-family zoning. Landowners now have state approval to convert any single family home in the state of California to a 4 unit apartment complex. How does this improve someone’s life? This will not be the case. It means demolishing houses to set up rental housing.
At the request of his donors, Gavin Newsom is turning the state of California into a swamp. This isn’t just happening in California, Oregon recently passed a statewide ban on single-family home zoning. This is insane! Cities like Minneapolis and Sacramento have started allowing multi-family housing on single-family lots. Congestion problem, anyone thinks? By the way, only the Chinese government seems to be doing anything to rule out real estate developers. “Housing must be lively and not speculative,” said the Chinese president. Woo, I hate to quote the Chinese president, but in this case he’s right, one of the biggest and most indebted real estate companies in the world is falling apart and China has indicated it doesn’t want to never bail out again. In this country, the real estate companies don’t just get bailouts, they write the law, destroy your neighborhood. And in many parts of America, they will be able to demolish the house next door and turn it into an apartment complex. Great!
