Forums - Politics Discussion - Cost of living in Oregon rises $3/hour.... In 2016 alone.

I live in Texas. :D

I pay that much on mortgage for a 2000 sqft 3-bedroom house.

Thank God I live in an area where property values and taxes aren't ridiculously high. If I was living on the West Coast, I'd probably be agitating for a $15/hour minimum wage, too.

Left wing state vs right wing. It makes a difference.

Cost of living ain't that bad here in Arizona either and were growing faster than Oregon.

Move to Tennessee. 3 story, 4 bedroom, 2 full bath, for only 800 a month. Center of town and low crime as well. Maybe all those people who left 150 years ago will move back to the south.

What are you talking about?  Arizona and Texas are both Republican states.

Well people leaving the north and going south is already happening.

Over here there is an exodus of California's population going to other parts of the west.

I think you misread what I said.

AZ are TX are both red states and its no coincidence our cost of living is lower.

Texas is an anomaly and practically its own country. I don't think it's fair to compare them to anyone else really. I do think they are a great state however and have also contemplated a move there. Montana and Texas both would benefit me well given my particular field of work



Feels bad that such a big city has pretty cheap apartments compared to the small cities in Iowa.

With a higher population apartment prices tend to go up right?
