There's a stop across the street anyhow, near the Courtyards of Kettering. I'm surprised they didn't ***** about this years ago. I think it was sometime in 2011 or 2010 they put it there.

I never said there was no public assistance in suburbia. But there's definitely more of it going to the city. The massive majority of income taxes are paid by suburban residents, and almost half our country pays zero federal income tax at all.

When you combine the flow of tax money with the constant flow of investment in the city's crumbling infrastructure (and lack of money going towards the suburbs), it doesn't take a genius to determine in which direction the money is constantly flowing.

Montgomery County doesn't turn over sales and property tax to Dayton. But the Montgomery County sales tax (which is higher than all neighboring counties) soaks all countywide residents in order to subsidize RTA. And RTA is overwhelmingly used by city residents but is paid for by suburban taxpayers.

I don't know where you're getting your info, but suburbs are *heavily* subsidized. All that sprawl was built on the backs of the urban population.

There’s a mortgage-interest deduction to homeowners and no comparable deduction for renters. FHA single family loan program spent over $1 trillion from 2007-2011 compared to $185 billion for HUD. Also, about $42 billion dollars a year go to highway upkeep, which is more than goes to mass transit.
