We get it. To you all Republicans suck. Your worship of the Democratic party is ludicrous.Name me one Republican candidate in California that has run on allowing multi-family zoning into local area not already zoned for it? And that aside, what are you basing your belief upon that multi-family zoning would somehow resolve high housing costs? There are plenty of condos/apartments/multi-family dwellings that are many thousands of dollars a month in rent. How is a homeless person going to afford that? Think about it. Republicans are against public assistance. You know most of the homeless have mental illnesses and are essentially unemployable... nobody wants to higher most of them. So, how does your multi-family zoning suggesting fix any of this?
Unless you're willing to start creating European-style social service type assistance, similar to the stated and/or federal govt just giving people money for housing (Section 8 already does this and does not require multi-family housing), but conservatives oppose all of this. I'm not saying I'm in favor of it, either... what I'm saying is that Republicans like to blame many problems they helped to create, on Democrats.
There hasn't ever been any political party worthy of the praise you heap on the Democrats.
