Thank you — that is what I did mean. I usually try to be more careful in using 
“affordable” but I was quoting a source. As others pointed out “affordable” to 
HUD is not the same as “affordable” to the rest of the world. 

We need low income housing, but I think a better way to get it than subsidy is 
to design better housing options and not use codes to restrict low income 
housing. And fix our unbalanced income problems.
