Section 8 is an insane ripoff. A house near mine didn't sell for what the owner, who moved out of state, wanted; so, he rented it to a 'grandma' and her teenage grandson. Now there are two grown females, three adult males, and two elementary school girls living there. Two of the men work at plants across the river. Landlords like Section 8 because they get the majority of their money even if the lessee doesn't pay a dime. Needless to say, the whole neighborhood takes a hit when Section 8 comes in.
