Bernie Sanders tweets recipe for exacerbating housing crisis

"So what is the solution? We need fewer barriers to building well-placed homes. This involves adopting more flexible zoning. Oregon’s banning of single family zoning and California’s SB 50, allowing single family homes to be replaced by apartment buildings, are an excellent examples of this approach. Sometimes economics can be counter-intuitive but the best solution to a housing crisis is pretty straight forward: build more homes."
