By the way, I think you meant eminent domain.
Maybe we should look at raising property taxes an extra 10% in towns where the median housing prices are a million dollars to help fund affordable housing.

What about that suggestion?

Re: Tracking affordable housing

Maybe we can create a Magical Kingdom where everybody lives in peace and harmony.
Where the butterflies come home onto the Greenway park and everybody can enjoy the city of Boston. (nobody has to pay for anything)
