You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy than progressive liberal cities - specifically New York and San Francisco. The politicians do what sounds good, they do not do good. A classic two-fer regarding homelessness:
First, from the New York Post:
Why homelessness gets worse as de Blasio doubles spending
City Comptroller Scott Stringer is rightly raking Mayor de Blasio over the coals over his new budget, which proposes $2.3 billion in spending on the homeless — nearly double the outlay of three years ago.
Yet, Stringer asks, “are we seeing results?” The answer, he makes clear, is no: “The crisis is growing; it is not receding.”
Yes, Stringer wants de Blasio’s job. But the facts speak for themselves.
Second, from Ed Driscoll writing at PJ Media:
A New Entrant For The Fox Butterfield Award
"Despite its spending more money per capita on homelessness than any comparable city, [San Francisco's] homeless problem is worse than any comparable city's."
-- SF Weekly, while running smack dab into the Butterfield Effect, at least arrives at an inescapable conclusion: "It's time to face facts: San Francisco is spectacularly mismanaged and arguably the worst-run big city in America."
