Violence/Genocide: Do not condone violence or genocide on a person or group of people. You are free to attack a person or groups ideas but you are crossing the line when calling for violence. This will be heavily enforced in threads with breaking news involving victims.

What do you think of Bernie's "Housing for All" program?

    I don't think this guy knows how a single section 8 house can ruin an entire neighborhood. I've had several section 8 nightmares in different neighborhoods and I'm not even that old yet

    How do you "combat" segregation when you are also fighting gentrification?

    I guess you would rather people live on the streets.

    Homelessness can ruin neighborhoods too. Or maybe you aren't old enough to realize that.

    People living on the streets.

    People on the street are drug addicts and mentally ill. They'll still be on the streets begging for drug money and yelling nonsense even if they have a flop house. Should we give them a drug allowance too? How bout we build giant state of the art hospitals and hire drs to administer heroin to them around the clock?

    Would you rather have them as neighbors shitting on your front yard, occassionally breaking into your house to steal things so they can buy more heroine? Because that's what a section 8 neighbor did to me. Minus the shitting on the front yard part.

    In 2013, at my old home, a section 8 neighbor who memorized my work hours broke in to my back sliding door and stole watches, TV, my laptop and iPad among other things. Only got caught because police raided the home for suspected drug deals and found one of the items I listed as stolen

    One of the biggest contributing factors to homelessness is medical debt. Also the working poor.

    So you sound like an idiot when you lump everybody into that "druggie group"

    We should get you a brain allowance so you don't say stupid shit like that.

    I don't really know the Fair Housing Act but proposals like this really turn on the details of implementation. I don't know how national rent control would be implemented or how you micromanage all of the various eviction courts and their rules from D.C. I've got different rules county to county, I can't imagine what you'd have to give the states and the municipalities to get them to participate.

    From 2002-2019, we spent almost 2 trillion dollars in middle east wars. 5 million Americans lost their homes in the housing crisis. But we can't afford to house Americans in the richest country to every exist.

    But your anecdotal evidence has convinced me. Housing people = bad. Homeless people = good.

    No. We want to call every homeless person a junkie to make ourselves feel superior even though 99% of us are a few paychecks away from being homeless ourselves.

    Like everything else he proposes, it ignores all negative consequences, it feels good.

    He does this because he knows and takes advantage of the fact that progressives are emotionally driven people.

    Free showers for all homeless people and gas subsidies for the working poor.
