Can't afford to live here anymore
My friends' neighbor, a third-generation Miamian, recently moved her family to the middle of the state because she couldn't afford the extra $1000-plus added to her mortgage payment in taxes and insurance. Both husband and wife worked.
I don't know how my children will ever be able to afford a decent home in a good neighborhood in Miami. We are a city increasingly divided between the haves and the have-nots -- with one ironic twist: The have-nots are working people, some college educated, many young and starting off. They've played by the rules, but the rules haven't played for them.
