    Six of one, half a dozen of the other.

    I think they should be more worried they are all living in a rented basement apartment because they couldn’t afford a decent place to live due to the cost of their Obamacare plan…

    Well, Genome, that’s because the cost of living in those states is much lower than in the Bluest of the Blue (ie., bastions of Progressive Leftist thinking) states.

    Wages have to be much higher in Blue states to allow people living there to have enough left over after being taxed, paying more for everything else to not be in complete poverty.

    For what you can rent a good apartment in Houston or Phoenix you can’t get a rent controlled studio apartment in a slum in New York City….

    Did this not use to be the norm , as people aged or when they needed a bit of help was not family the answer. I grew up in a home with three generations under one roof , is it illegal now to care about your flesh and blood. The tradition of elders being around to help educate the young and be cared for as they cared for us when we were young is world wide. The idea of shipping old folk off to a “care facility” is ours alone I do believe , and IMO it sucks!

    Manhattan is expensive, but there are decent places to live in NYC that don’t cost millions. Houston & Phoenix have expensive neighborhoods, but nothing like Manhattan. Of course, Manhattan’s obscene real estate prices are driven by the obscene profits on Wall Street.

    There is some truth to this. Times change & not always for the better. But grandparents are more likely to choose to move to Arizona as they are to move in with their kids & grandkids.

    In the past, people did not live as long and we didn’t have advanced medical care to keep people alive the way we do now. Years ago, cancer or a heart attack meant death. Now, people can live for years despite these ailments, but may need 24×7 care.

    Once upon a time, one wage was enough to support most households, meaning someone had time to look after aging parents. Not so common anymore…

    I like your point, but it’s not quite so simple. I’m guessing you don’t live with your kids & grandkids, though I believe you’ve stayed close.
