The Epoch Times: California's Homelessness Crisis: The Illusion of Government Spending
California's homeless population has become a full-blown humanitarian crisis, yet the more money the government spends, the worse the problem seems to get. According to a report by the state's Interagency Council on Homelessness, California spent almost $10bn between 2018 and 2021 servicing over 571,000 homeless people, with each year servicing more than the last. Despite such massive spending, the majority still remained homeless. There's been no method addressing how the state could spend the money more effectively, and efficiency is rarely the government's objective. We've made it vulnerable to corruption, gouging of taxpayer money by many players involved in the homeless industrial complex, which ill-serves the needy.
