Let local government decide about housing needs?

“Let local government decide about housing needs.” Really! Let there be no mistake, 100% of the so-called housing crisis is due to government policies. People are asking for those who created the housing crisis to solve it.  That’s absurd. The idea that low-income people are entitled to live in brand new housing is absurd. Inclusionary zoning policies are absurd that make all housing more expensive, both brand new and existing if you think about it for a couple of seconds, in order to help a handful of voters. When government adds to the cost of brand new housing, after a lag time the added  cost is capitalized into the price of all housing which is why 50-year old homes in San Diego cost over $300,000 today.
