California’s Homeless Spending and Policies Have Only Worsened the Epidemic



By Stephen Frank,  California Political News and Views

Thanks to Gray Davis as governor, the people of California paid excessive sums for gas and energy.  Thanks to Guv Brown, farmers did not have enough water—and the price of food went up.  Plus, we were forced to import food into this State.  Housing shortage—look at the government policies making housing expensive and difficult to build.  Homelessness?  More government interference creates a problem and makes it worse.

“Whether you are forced to check the public defecation map to navigate the streets of San Francisco, are on the 57 freeway in Santa Ana looking at miles of homeless tent cities and camps, or you are dodging heroin-addicted homeless zombies around the State Capitol and on residential streets in Sacramento, the results are the same — Nearly one-third of the nation’s welfare recipients and homeless population lives in California.

In 2017, a Sacramento city report found a 30 percent spike in homelessness over the past two years, which many in the region felt underestimated the problem.

To the south, L.A.’s homelessness surged 75% in six years .

In 2016, San Francisco allocated a record $241 million on homeless services, but couldn’t track results.”

Throw enough tax dollars at a problem you will have a crisis.  Throw even more government money, and you have a disaster.  Wonder why productive people are leaving California—look for the government label.

Chasing out middle class taxpayers and businesses that actually hire people, while inviting both homeless and illegal aliens dependent upon tax funded welfare; what could ever go wrong with that strategy?

Oh, and I forgot…

Most NON-homeless people are under the impression that most of OUR homeless are actually FROM California!! Guess what… When they asked over 1800 of them in 4 major cities, HALF of them said they have been in California for less than 2 years! HALF!!

Alan Mckenzie

So true, so true. We might as well be putting out advertisements in other cities and states telling their homeless to come here!

Oh wait, that’s right, with all the stories of how great California is treating it’s homeless and the money we’re willing to spend on them, other places are sending them here!!

“Free bus tickets to California… Get your Free bus tickets! All Homeless are welcome!! All illegal aliens welcome too!!”

DUH! “Stupid is as stupid does.”
