Progressive policies in action: Homelessness in LA County expected to skyrocket by 86% in next 4 years

The street of LA…

As is the case with many progressive-run large cities, Los Angeles is facing a major homeless crisis. I’ve reported on this many times over the last several years, see the following:

Paradise lost: Homeless in demorat-run Los Angeles
Demorat-run Los Angeles County: Homeless death rate jumps by more than a third
Demorat-run Los Angeles: 124 confirmed cases of Typhus amid fears Bubonic Plague is affecting homeless
Liberal utopia of Los Angeles: Take a look at Skid Row…

After the city has spent MILLIONS each year, do you think they’ve achieved any level of success in solving their homeless crisis?

That is rhetorical, of course. Just take a look at this:

ABC7 News reports that the non-profit Economic Roundtable predicts that chronic homelessness in Los Angeles County is expected to skyrocket by 86% in next four years.

Aparently the impact of Wuhan virus is expected to be twice as bad as the financial crisis of 2008.

Los Angeles County has approximately 15,000 chronically homeless and that number is expected to DOUBLE in the next four years.

More from the ABC story: The county’s overall homeless population, which includes so-called “couch surfers” and others who bounce in and out of homelessness, is currently hovering around 66,000. The Economic Roundtable forecast pegs that number at 89,760 by 2023, a 36% increase.

>>”the impact of Wuhan virus”

Wuhan virus had no impact; government action had.

The Wuhan flu couldn’t even impact those street-people in the picture —famous for healthy life-style and strong immune system.

Who elected this Garcetti from Mexico ? was it the voting machine or the people of Lost Angeles ?

All by design! I was once homeless in my 20’s its a terrible feeling. Whos Fault was that? 100% mine. Because i had a choice, I was selfish and thought i knew everything. I then realised that My best thinking got me in this predicament. I reached out for help to a charity and over the next 5 years i got my self back on the Road less trsvelled. It was a long struggle to get myself out if that painful time. 20 years later I try not to take the very basics of life for granted. Food, clothing and… Read more »

I have paid attention to the homeless/poverty industry in the past twenty years. My observation is: the more money is spent on “the homelessness problem,” the more homeless there are. The amount of money that has been given to these outreach workers and shelter operators, could have built a 100,000 condos by now —-if solving the problem had been the objective.

Like all those cancer societies —the money is well spent, today there is a lot more cancer than before they were organized.

I agree, I had very little help. Had to bite the bullet and just get tough.

Denver police department defended taking Blankets off the Homeless at one stage. I was wondering if that practice is still in place. Like a policy.
