"The idea that Conservatives don't care about the homeless is BS."

I think this statement is largely true but the pressure against the Right to resolve issues is just too great.  Self reliant must mean self reliant.  If the Right chooses to support a program to help the homeless, there's no doubt some layabouts will take advantage of this assistance.  This unfortunate and unavoidable result then leads to claims our Government is wasting our money which is then followed with the accusation we're stealing from the rich.  The triple whammy as it be.  Caring is good but it's just not enough in the eyes of many other Americans.

Btw, I'm going to steal another line and say many on the Left care a great deal about abortions but have other ideas on reducing them other than tossing Americans in jail.

I don't promote abortion, I just think, within limits, it's a woman's right. SCOTUS agrees.

I agree you don’t want a woman to end her pregnancy voluntarily, but you support the right to kill a fetus up to 20 weeks for whatever reason.

You support abortion rights.

Hack the baby into selected portions, and sell the eyes, spine, and brain for profit. It's capitalism at it's worst.

Big story in the local news right before the holidays was a city wide meeting to deal with the homeless. Salvation Army is running 120% of capacity. Through investigation many homeless said that cities in other states were buying them bus tickets to Tulsa because of the amount of services offered to them.

I believe the same is happening here in SoCal. There is an explosion of homeless people here. No way they are all local and just happened to fall on hard times. Surveys of these people show the majority are from out of state. Of course Ca feeds the problem. If you show up here with nothing the day you arrive you can sign up for freemedical care, among a myriad of other free programs.
So glad they are being taken care of while my premiums just went up 29%

We have it here in Seattle.  Once a week a short bus from Boise shows up and 15 homeless get off the bus.  Boise people said you would freeze to death if you were homeless in Boise. 

Seattle actively says they want the homeless dropped off here.  Dem politicians are fine with cause it gets them votes.

The mayor has a sandwich truck that pulls up on the mayors office fancy courtyard the last Thursday of every month.  That is considered a very hard time on homeless as they are waiting for their next government check and their EBT cards are drained.  The sandwiches are served in bags with a picture of the mayor. 

You just cannot make up how much graft it takes to float these big lib city dem machines.

Usually make a stop there on my way to CO every year. Fall is best those because the crowds have gone and the weather is still nice. When you head out the tunnels going east there is some good fishing on the many streams and cool cabins right on the waters edge to hang your hat for the night

This could have gone many places. It’s a great tearing down of liberal philosophies that destroy once great places.
Hey Dewey, take a read at the failure of the policies you love.

(Los Angeles Times)
Kerry Jackson
Guess which state has the highest poverty rate in the country? Not Mississippi, New Mexico, or West Virginia, but California, where nearly one out of five residents is poor. That’s according to the Census Bureau’s Supplemental Poverty Measure, which factors in the cost of housing, food, utilities and clothing, and which includes noncash government assistance as a form of income.

Given robust job growth and the prosperity generated by several industries, it’s worth asking why California has fallen behind, especially when the state’s per-capita GDP increased approximately twice as much as the U.S. average over the five years ending in 2016 (12.5%, compared with 6.27%).


It’s not as though California policymakers have neglected to wage war on poverty. Sacramento and local governments have spent massive amounts in the cause. Several state and municipal benefit programs overlap with one another; in some cases, individuals with incomes 200% above the poverty line receive benefits. California state and local governments spent nearly $958 billion from 1992 through 2015 on public welfare programs, including cash-assistance payments, vendor payments and “other public welfare,” according to the Census Bureau. California, with 12% of the American population, is home today to about one in three of the nation’s welfare recipients.

California Democrats have long been free to indulge blue-state ideology while paying little or no political price.
The generous spending, then, has not only failed to decrease poverty; it actually seems to have made it worse.


In the late 1980s and early 1990s, some states — principally Wisconsin, Michigan, and Virginia — initiated welfare reform, as did the federal government under President Clinton and a Republican Congress. Tied together by a common thread of strong work requirements, these overhauls were a big success: Welfare rolls plummeted and millions of former aid recipients entered the labor force.

The state and local bureaucracies that implement California’s antipoverty programs, however, resisted pro-work reforms. In fact, California recipients of state aid receive a disproportionately large share of it in no-strings-attached cash disbursements. It’s as though welfare reform passed California by, leaving a dependency trap in place. Immigrants are falling into it: 55% of immigrant families in the state get some kind of means-tested benefits, compared with just 30% of natives.

Self-interest in the social-services community may be at fault. As economist William A. Niskanen explained back in 1971, public agencies seek to maximize their budgets, through which they acquire increased power, status, comfort and security. To keep growing its budget, and hence its power, a welfare bureaucracy has an incentive to expand its “customer” base. With 883,000 full-time-equivalent state and local employees in 2014, California has an enormous bureaucracy. Many work in social services, and many would lose their jobs if the typical welfare client were to move off the welfare rolls.

Further contributing to the poverty problem is California’s housing crisis. More than four in 10 households spent more than 30% of their income on housing in 2015. A shortage of available units has driven prices ever higher, far above income increases. And that shortage is a direct outgrowth of misguided policies.


“Counties and local governments have imposed restrictive land-use regulations that drove up the price of land and dwellings,” explains analyst Wendell Cox. “Middle-income households have been forced to accept lower standards of living while the less fortunate have been driven into poverty by the high cost of housing.” The California Environmental Quality Act, passed in 1971, is one example; it can add $1 million to the cost of completing a housing development, says Todd Williams, an Oakland attorney who chairs the Wendel Rosen Black & Dean land-use group. CEQA costs have been known to shut down entire homebuilding projects. CEQA reform would help increase housing supply, but there’s no real movement to change the law.

Extensive environmental regulations aimed at reducing carbon dioxide emissions make energy more expensive, also hurting the poor. By some estimates, California energy costs are as much as 50% higher than the national average. Jonathan A. Lesser of Continental Economics, author of a 2015 Manhattan Institute study, “Less Carbon, Higher Prices,” found that “in 2012, nearly 1 million California households faced … energy expenditures exceeding 10% of household income. In certain California counties, the rate of energy poverty was as high as 15% of all households.” A Pacific Research Institute study by Wayne Winegarden found that the rate could exceed 17% of median income in some areas.

Looking to help poor and low-income residents, California lawmakers recently passed a measure raising the minimum wage from $10 an hour to $15 an hour by 2022 — but a higher minimum wage will do nothing for the 60% of Californians who live in poverty and don’t have jobs. And research indicates that it could cause many who do have jobs to lose them. A Harvard University study found evidence that “higher minimum wages increase overall exit rates for restaurants” in the Bay Area, where more than a dozen cities and counties, including San Francisco, have changed their minimum-wage ordinances in the last five years. “Estimates suggest that a one-dollar increase in the minimum wage leads to a 14% increase in the likelihood of exit for a 3.5-star restaurant (which is the median rating),” the report says. These restaurants are a significant source of employment for low-skilled and entry-level workers.

Apparently content with futile poverty policies, Sacramento lawmakers can turn their attention to what historian Victor Davis Hanson aptly describes as a fixation on “remaking the world.” The political class wants to build a costly and needless high-speed rail system; talks of secession from a United States presided over by Donald Trump; hired former attorney general Eric H. Holder Jr. to “resist” Trump’s agenda; enacted the first state-level cap-and-trade regime; established California as a “sanctuary state” for illegal immigrants; banned plastic bags, threatening the jobs of thousands of workers involved in their manufacture; and is consumed by its dedication to “California values.” All this only reinforces the rest of America’s perception of an out-of-touch Left Coast, to the disservice of millions of Californians whose values are more traditional, including many of the state’s poor residents.

With a permanent majority in the state Senate and the Assembly, a prolonged dominance in the executive branch and a weak opposition, California Democrats have long been free to indulge blue-state ideology while paying little or no political price. The state’s poverty problem is unlikely to improve while policymakers remain unwilling to unleash the engines of economic prosperity that drove California to its golden years.

'New California' campaign wants to create 51st state by splitting rural areas from coast

EX:

A campaign launched this week to create a 51st state by separating rural areas in California from the state's coastal cities and Sacramento, with supporters saying the state has become "ungovernable." 

The "New California" movement claims California is a failed state due to its high taxes and declining health care, among other things.
