Bedbugs or cash cow?

Landlords have become the ruling class in Washington.

Senior housing owners are charging residents for bedbug treatments regardless of how the infestation begins. Seniors live on Social Security and can’t afford this. The bill goes on their account and compromises their credit. You can’t live anywhere else with no good credit.

No Washington government agency is interested in helping us. Calling seniors a protected class is a joke.
