Where art thou, American Dream?

This article by Mark Morford of the San Francisco Chronicle makes a ton of sense. It’s something I’ve been thinking of for the past few years now, after buying and then selling a home and considering buying another.

I think it’s time for our government to consider giving folks who don’t want to buy a home, or can’t afford to buy a home (or those who chose to try and cheat the economic fates and went against all logic and credit and bought a home) to provide similar tax breaks and other benefits that homeowners get.

Why should I be punished because I’d rather put my money in a sounder, saner investment?
