Raising the Rent …


Oh. m’gawd … ‘Dr. Carson has a plan … a plan to raise rents on subsidized housing, in some cases as much as 300%. This comes on the heels of an executive order that Trump signed earlier this month to expand work requirements for low-income Americans receiving Medicaid, food stamps, public housing benefits and welfare.’
When will it stop? There’s no semblance of even trying … it’s right out in the open!
America … you’re in bad shape!!

Filosofa's Word

Dr. Ben Carson, formerly a pediatric neurosurgeon, is the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) under the Trump administration.  Dr. Carson was, by all accounts, an excellent surgeon, but as I have mentioned before in this blog, he should have stayed in the medical profession and out of politics.

Yesterday’s news, widely reported among the media, floored me – a jaw-dropping moment.   It turns out that Dr. Carson has a plan … a plan to raise rents on subsidized housing, in some cases as much as 300%.  This comes on the heels of an executive order that Trump signed earlier this month to expand work requirements for low-income Americans receiving Medicaid, food stamps, public housing benefits and welfare.

Hey … somebody has to pay for all those tax cuts we gave to the already-wealthy last year, right?

Carson also wants to scrap rules allowing deductions for medical and child-care…

I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone "out there" who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is "eclectic" - a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I'm interested in news reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse - the "wrongly" affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I'm open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one .... since we ALL are ONE!! The future looks bright and promising!!!

  1. I heard this on the news last night. Declaring war on poverty does not mean killing off the poorest of the poor. This Administration doesn’t have a clue…..how could they? They all have silver spoons up their butts. Or perhaps they know exactly what they are doing and simply don’t care.

  2. I was so disgusted to hear this on the news. Honestly, anyone taking over a social work agency, like HUD, needs to go live in HUD housing for a month and live off a social security check only…they would get their eyes opened really fast as to just how difficult it is for the working poor.
