So, raising taxes for more govt services helped exacerbated the problem?

Shocker.

Should have learned from LA, SF, etc.

As a child my sister thought Pepto Bismol made her throw up.

What kind of crazy spin is that?   26,000 people were assisted.  How is that exacerbating the problem?  

No it didn't solve the problem obviously, but how much worse would it be for the people?

I swear sometimes I really do try to give you the benefit of the doubt for being reasonable but I get disappointed yet again.  

Yeah, I think throwing money at the problem isn't always the answer.  Kind of like all the CABG's being done and yet heart disease remains the #1 killer.  One has to look at the root causes and try to address that as well.

I can’t really speak to the specifics of Herring’s city, but I doubt it was as simple as taxes were increased, houses were built, homeless had a home, thise folks are supporting themselves.

LA for example has tried something similar.  They have half the homes built, and are almost out of money.  Their best hope now is to complete the rest by 2026.

Tax money raised and then not used efficiently.  More money to the government, not to the economy.  Growth is stifled, not as many jobs as their might be, etc.

I think we all know what type of spin it is called.

How would you think the problem of income inequality would slow, or stop, with an empty-headed moron sitting in the WH?

I guess a lot of things wouldn’t change for the better with a “empty-headed moron” in the WH.

I don’t understand the purpose or point of this statement.

The solution isn't more money for so-called "job creators."

It has been pointed out many, many, times, that wage stagnation, income inequality is the problem.

Many of the homeless in LA, work, as herring pointed out.

Back peddling?

What plans does Trump have to end income inequality?

I would LOVE to read them.

I know he is planning big pep rally in FL tonight, but the focus will be stirring up the rabid, racist base with tall tales about illegal immigrants.

Will he mention income inequality?

I doubt it.

I don't believe that is what herring said.

The initial, stop gap measure, is to get folks off the streets, and into housing.

But there needs to be a long-term plan.

I don't see one being offered by the empty-headed moron, currently sitting in the WH.

Do you?

A great economy and low unemployment rate, record unemployment among some demographics, is the long-term plan.

In some places, like the cities mentioned, liberal policies work against this plan.

I wonder how spending tax dollars to improve the lives of regular and poor Americans is not important and doesn't count as investing in our economy? Is there any acknowledgement that the working poor and the non working poor put nearly 100% of any income directly back into the local economy rather than saving it in a off shore account or tax loophole?

Ok. 

Typical Trumpster point of view.

I will move on.

You should check out the documentary, “Seattle is Dying”.

"Seattle is Dying" was produced by a TV station owned by Sinclair Broadcasting, known to be sympathetic to conservative causes. 

I would classify it more as an editorial than a documentary.

This goes back to Rush’s point.  He should mention income inequality when he visits LA and SF.  The local longtime liberal leaders there don’t mention it, because they helped create it and don’t have a solution for it.
