The entitlement attitude is also deeply rooted in the U.S. This week,The Washington Post reported on a New York family, it says, makes $497,911 annually, but pays just $1,574 a month for a three-bedroom apartment subsidized by taxpayers. In Los Angeles, reports the Post, five people have lived in public housing since 1974. They made $204,784 last year, but paid only $1,091 in rent. In Oxford, Nebraska, a tenant with assets of $1.6 million last year paid $300 a month for a one-bedroom public housing apartment.
