Guess how much WA State governor wants to spend to “fight” homelessness

You will not believe the amount of taxpayer dollars Gov. Jay Inslee wants to spend to fight homelessness in his state. Actually, it’s not surprising at all.

What IS surprising is the small impact the MILLIONS of dollars will have in solving anything associated with the homeless industrial complex.

You can read the whole story about the governor’s plan here at MyNorthwest.com. I’m just pulling excerpts of the governor’s initiatives. Take a look at these numbers (which are in addition to Seattle and King County’s numbers):

Total amount the governor will include in 2020 supplemental budget: $146 million
Total cost over three years: $300 million
$66 million to “reduce the point-in-time count of unsheltered individuals by 1,890
$15.4 million to provide permanent supportive housing for 1,080 people

It’s been four years since former Seattle Mayor Ed Murray declared a homeless emergency. And it’s been 14 years since King County developed their ten-year plan to end homelessness. During this whole time, the area has been run by progressives.

In Seattle/King County they currently spend ONE BILLION taxpayer dollars annually to “fight” homelessness.

Guess the plan is to never actually “end” homelessness but rather just “fight” it. Courtesy of taxpayers, of course.

Yup, they’ll keep fighting the good fight with our money. Whenever TPTB declare a “war” on something – cancer, drugs, AIDS, terrorism – it invariably gets worse. They haven’t actually declared war on homelessness – or I should say “folks living outside” – they’re just “fighting” it. Which is to say milking it and thereby creating tons of paper for otherwise worthless bureaucrats to shuffle. Pathetic

I wonder if we would be better off by going homeless, we are promised so much, the homeless will stay as they are and in turn they will make the crooked officials millionaires over night.

They should round up the homeless and put them in a refugee camp outside the city. Then spend the millions to feed them, house them in army surplus tents, provide healthcare both mental an physical, job training, and education. nobody should be living on the streets or in their car. By the way a lot of the homeless have plenty of money for drugs and alcohol, cell phones and cigarettes. I would think all of those (useless to me) social workers and psychoanalyzers, bleeding heart groups would welcome ready made customers. And the police could concentrate on public safety and… Read more »
