Try not to act surprised but there's a homeless problem in California.
I know we've been telling you this for YEARS. But now we have more information from political and financial analyst Edward Ring on the true horror of where our money towards "fixing" the homeless problem is going.
According to Dr. Drew Pinsky, Los Angeles could be at risk for a deadly typhus epidemic this summer. He recently told Fox News “We have tens and tens of thousands of people living in tents. Horrible conditions. Rats have taken over the city. We’re the only city in the country, Los Angeles, without a rodent control program. We have multiple rodent-borne, flea-borne illnesses, plague, typhus. We’re going to have louse-borne illness. Measles could break into that population. We have tuberculosis exploding.”
All of this can easily be confirmed. Just look up Los Angeles outbreaks. The city has encountered multiple of outbreaks of typhus, hepatitis, and tuberculosis. It's not just Los Angeles either. This has happened in MANY other California cities. multiple
Just in Los Angeles county alone, there are 55,000 homeless. The state has at least 130,000. The homeless could make up their own CITY. They're ruining California. They live on the sidewalks, in parks and parking lots, empty lots, and even the state's beaches. They have no sanitation and no one picks up their trash. They are spreading disease by carrying animals and insects with them. It's causing rats, fleas, mosquitoes, ticks, mites, and lice to completely start taking over areas.
The conditions the homeless leave isn't even the worst part of this problem. There's plenty of money to fix this. Just back in 2016, voters voted to approve Measure HHH. This measure would give the city $1.2 billion in bonds to build 10,000 units to house the homeless. Los Angeles voters even voted to approve a sales tax INCREASE. That's how desperate people are to fix this homeless problem.
Making matters worse, the state of California has even sent additional hundreds of millions.
Still nothing done... and why? Because this state is dealing with a Homeless Industrial Complex.
Yep, you heard that right.
We have have a Homeless Industrial Complex that is just getting the filthy rich and the opportunity to waste millions of dollars. All while the homeless population continues to rise.
Welcome to California! We hope you like the homeless and everything they bring.
