  1. Theyre house would look like theyre tent structure. They are unable to maintain a home. It would become a neighborhood, code enforcement issue. Notice the lack of hispanic homeless? At the border, in Tijuana, those tents, and areas around them were swept, clean, and orderly. Hmmmmm.

  2. Its a culture. The Downtrodden. It is their son, Mr. Carson. It is their daughter, granddaughter, grandson, etc. Its the underclass! The forgotten segment of society. Most usually, theyre family has disowned, disenfranchized, or cast them out. They have no resources left. Theyre like the leper colonies in the Bible. And theyre not lepers. But when your in their position, you may as well be. Its amazing how many are articulate, and talented, in ways beyond the imagination, but have been otherwise programmed. And then they decided to be on drugs, so they pretty much shot theyre nose off, to spite their face. But, so what, they can turn around. And Ben Carson, hopefully can help them. Jared, and Ivanka could help, maybe. They, are very inspirational, as individuals, and as a team, rolling their sleeves up, it'd be neat.(just a whacky thought).

  3. All of the funding money is going to immigrants that keep coming in that we can't afford. It means our own American citizens will not get the care that they need. We have to take care of our own family first (the citizens of our own country).

  4. Came from a one parent home, momma said read! Educate yourself. One of our fine past politicians from Houston Barbara Jordan. also did this and her catch phrase was "THE OPPORTUNITY IS OUT THERE GET UP AND GET IT. Her final years she was in a wheelchair but she was still feisty and a first timer in state government and national government. What a lady GO DR.BEN!!

  5. Carson sees his job as buying the most expensive furniture he can find for his office at taxpayer expense, then doing nothing.

  6. newsom is pigfloocies nephew !!!! a obvious mental case !!!!!!! need to put these homeless people in mental institution type facilities !!!!!!!!!!!

  7. I wish the commentator would have been homeless during the Giuliani administration. We experienced it, you don't know what you are talking about. Ben Carson is doing a great job but he agrees with people like you too much. Let him hear what the homeless have to say!

  8. They WANT a coronavirus to take them out so they can blame Trump & solve their problem, leftists don't care about people, it's all about their power

  9. Newsom is such an idiot. It shows just how uninformed Democrat voters can be in CA and the rest of the country.
    Anyone who believes the unverified nonsense that comes out of the Dem pols mouth is more of a fool than our country really needs. I say we send them to Cuba, Venezuela, England, etc.

  10. Practical!? They are all guilty(Washington) for misusing taxes.Warmongering at the top of the list. Self-centeredness rules! Get elected and see how to make money sceams instead of doing the job you were elected to do. Waste!!!

  11. My friends have been on a wait list for affordable housing for 10 years. So yes homelessness will get worse. Studios or just renting a room is over 1500.00 even a hotel is over priced. California is perfect example of what socialism is. Praying for the homeless and for California and United States of America. We need God to change the hearts of men.

  12. Dr. Carson reminds ev one, what they, esp dems, should already know. 1st, diagnose any probl. THEN, plan effective remedy. Todays Progressives are too advanced socialists to understand basics of life to "know which side is up?" Same as their former professors?

  13. Housing prices are not the problem in Cal it's mostly substance abuse. Born and raised in silicon valley, left to Florida after 50years

  14. I have an idea how to help the homeless problem, vote out the dems that put the state into a downward spiral in the first place. easy fix, vote them out.

  15. Gavin Newsome is an idiot. They need help but addressing the symptom –living on the street–won't fix the problem. Dr, Carson is right!! Newsome and his ilk are the people who created this problem and they perpetuate it b/c they are too stupid to realize IT'S NOT WORKING. Dr. Carson knows how to fix this…but will the dems/rinos/leftist listen??? To date they have not and they will not, b/c they have an agenda and their real goal is radically transform this republic, and bringing it down its the first step.

  16. Assuming they want to work, I wonder how many of these ill-educated people gave up trying to find even a subsistence level job because of the 5 million illegals taking those jobs in CA?

  17. Homelessness:
    There are hundreds of FEMA Camps, Staffed and Stocked: This is an EMERGENCY!
    What are the for? They Cost Plenty to build and Plenty to run: Use them!

  18. there are no homeless people in my city. It is against the law and we have a PD that enforces the laws. We also don't have mobs of thugs screaming in our streets blocking traffic and disturbing the peace. Pubic space is for the pubic use. We are republican governed which I have come to realize makes ALL of the difference!

  19. Easy fix, every land owner over five acres, donates one half acre. Allow five mini homes, for mentally stable people or give five thousand dollars to build mental health live in facility.

  20. I personally have housed. Two family's of four and three individuals live with me, not all at one time. until they could afford a place to live..

  21. Dr's should be able to write a prescription for the homeless to recieve Cash Aid? To live on Pelosis front yard? Camping spaces in State Parks?

  22. You can’t hand out housing, but hand up to health is definitely a possibility. The country is ready to deal with this it is a creation of governance or lack there of. Government brought in drugs and allowed this to become an epidemic. San Fran wants good people selling for nothing to confiscate back the state of California.

  23. Bureaucracy is when they set up organizations to help others but they don't really help and the people running those orgs get rich. Politicians do this all the time, esp. democrats. Just look at democratic controlled areas, esp. california. People are leaving there as fast as any socialist country. Fifth largest economy in the world with the highest homeless and jobless rates in the nation and it is their model for what they want for the rest of us. If they were doing so well then why do they scream for more money? Margret Thatcher once said, "Socialism is great until you run out of other peoples money" and they have ran out and now taxes are so high it's pathetic but somehow if we give them more it will fix the problem. As with any problem you go to the source and it's color is blue.

  24. Do you have to do Ben Carson is you have to get the Army National Guard to set up tents and encampments outside of the public area set up medical attention and drug treatment facilities there to then remove everybody off the street oh, make it illegal to live on the street oh, and bring those people to that area where they could be properly assessed and not a threat to the public they're not a threat to everybody and then send the decontamination teams out there to clean up the area pick up the needles,

  25. A major real cause of homelessness is zoning laws causing house prices to inflate. Rich cities need to drastically loosen housing ordinances.

  26. Yes, Dr. Carson is absolutely correct. Give our homeless brothers and sisters a helping hand. PERIOD.

  27. What about the typhus in San Francisco? Newsom refusing to allow the recall petition and the missing billions for housing?

  28. Gavin Useless passing the buck. This is what liberal demoRats do best. If they were illegal invaders, they would have housing,food,medical care and I phones. Where does the money the state gets for the homeless go?


  30. Dr Carson > avoid rote indoctrination, review Francis Boyle on corona bioweapon origins and Chris Martenson at Peak Prosperity on failed containment

  31. That’s why the federal government needs to take over because he can’t do the job this is a first and Gavin is not up to the job so get a grown up in here to do it

  32. These Democrats talk about the rich people yet they have the highest rent and I don’t see them doing anything about that they limit water but can’t pick up garbage

  33. …The fool is saying don't do anything until he talks and talks. The people are on the streets, remove them, dummy. Trump people are puppies for stalling progressiveness, and soak up billions in public funds to fail publically.

  34. New some, you pay for all your illegals housing while leaving Americans on the streets! That’s how you’d handle the tax money, same as you’ve always done.

  35. These are American citizens – why are they treated worse than illegal immigrants?

    Where are the lawyers working for their cause?

    What actions are local politicians taking to resolve the crisis?

    Obviously, none. Because there wouldn’t be a problem if action was being taken. And there is plenty of wealth in California. It houses many of the country’s millionaires and billionaires.

  36. Our CDC aka government does not want doctors to write prescriptions for people suffering in pain, but wants these doctors who hate patients to write prescriptions for homeless people for public housing?? Big Fat Joke. If you want more people to get into public housing send DHS case workers down to the streets to get homeless into housing or buss them into DHS office. Doctors are not prepared to talk to homeless people they cant communicate with sick patients?? Doctors are not social workers! I like Ben Carson, but this makes no sense. Why is it governor of California wants to help illegals, but not homeless? Who are the homeless in California, illegals or American citizens? Let's figure that out before sending doctors down to the streets to write prescriptions it wont work doctors dont care about humans.

  37. Fairly good weather service’s close by free this and that. They know there’s no housing, so why do they keep flocking in ? I wonder.

  38. The problem is spiritual and moral. Sin ( But your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God, and your sins have hidden his face from you so that he does not hear.Isaiah 59:2)
    California has major sin issues. Cry out to Jesus to let the Spirit break out.

    6“No, this is the kind of fasting I want:

    Free those who are wrongly imprisoned;

    lighten the burden of those who work for you.

    Let the oppressed go free,

    and remove the chains that bind people.

    7Share your food with the hungry,

    and give shelter to the homeless.

    Give clothes to those who need them,

    and do not hide from relatives who need your help.

    8“Then your salvation will come like the dawn,

    and your wounds will quickly heal.

    Your godliness will lead you forward,

    and the glory of the LORD will protect you from behind.

    9Then when you call, the LORD will answer.

    ‘Yes, I am here,’ he will quickly reply.

    Isaiah 58

  39. What Gavin Newsome said is the stupidest thing I've ever heard. No wonder we don't ever hear from him the way we've heard from every other governor. The DNC handlers don't dare let him out for us to hear.

  40. The problem is California is running out of money to deal with this type stuff, because over-taxed taxpayers and businesses are fleeing the state in droves, all while the state continues to attract more and more illegals, homeless, etc. with its socialist policies. Sooner or later Cali Dems will have to face the fact that all them socialism benefactors voting to keep them in office aren't paying for anything.

  41. The doctor writes a script for housing. What will the co pay be? In California it will cost $500,000,00 dollars for a co payment.

  42. These politicians DO get it! They are making it happen on purpose! They put the drugs on the streets and they closed down long term mental health facilities! They facilitated the millions of illegals to cross the boarders and they are providing the illegals with a safe and comfortable lives while taking everything away from American citizens.

  43. "Carson calls on Congress to address what is plaguing crumbling cities"  Typically, Sanctuary Cities are plaguing crumbling cites…

  44. Gavin Newsom is so flakey! Really he thinks Doctor's should write prescriptions for housing to the California Homeless!!
    Ben Carson outs it all together for us. He has a perfect plan first.
    Ben Carson said, can you imagine if just one of these Homeless people contracts the Coronavirus?!?
    Ben Carson says that this problem can be fixed but we have to get to the reason that they live on the streets. He also says that if we continue to let this cesspool to continue then our government will get blamed and this can be fixed but we need to get to the bottom of why each person is living on the streets first so we can better know how to help them.
