Affordable Housing

fascinating game of words and numbers...
More than 72% of American families making the nation's median income of $63,800 a year, could afford to buy a home...
Translation: about 1/4 of the families that make an average income cannot afford to buy a home. Obviously, that fraction goes up as you descend from median...

then this:
Homeownership continues its more than year-long trend of remaining within reach of more households than it has for almost two decades...
What a grammatical monstrosity, in addition to being so circular that it almost creates its own field of gravity. Homeownership is "more within reach" than it has been for the last 20 years; but for OVER a year, this has been true. The last year+ is within "the last 20 years," therefore homeownership is getting exponentially more within reach every day. Ergo, by September, all homes should be free!
