    California's Mistreatment and Neglect of the Homeless Causing Public Health Crisis

    They are now complaining about being overrun by rats.

    There are a lot of issues in play but ultimately, this is California's fault. They extend benefits to attract economic migrants, most illegally here. They are systematically running upper and middle class people out of the state with high taxes and prohibitive regulation. Selfsame regulation is preventing sensible construction of the needed low income housing - as well as middle class housing.

    Now there are tens of thousands of people living - and defecating - in the streets of both San Francisco and Los Angeles.

    California needs to tend its own house NOW. Right now. There's no sense in having tent cities moving about major metropolis'. Get with the program, California!

    Thatís one of the reasons we wonít go to California once Iím out of the military. The state is slowly turning into a two class state where you have the ultra rich, living in luxury and the rest.

    Yeah Dr. Drew predicted all this and the plague months ago. California cities are turning into medieval nightmares. Sewage in the street, rats, diseases.

    What gets me is that this is where the liberal socialists have all the power. They run the government, they are the majority of the population in these cities, so why don't they enact the policies they keep trying to force on the rest of the country and fix their cities? Free housing! Free food! Free Medical! Get to it liberals! Show us evil capitalists how it should be done. Clean up your own back yard before you start trying to tell us how to live.

    California should be the shining example of a socialist paradise, right?

    That's kinda the model of socialism, eh?
    Every problem is the result of a previous solution.

    I think what perfectly highlights Californiaís problems is my parents house. Itís a standard, single family, one story home, with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. Most of the country it would be valued in the low to mid 100ís. In Southern California, 2 hours outside LA, itís valued in the mid 200ís. Closer to LA, youíd likely need to add 100k more. How could a middle class or even upper middle class family afford this? We estimated that weíd have to make 15-20k more, just to break even. Thatís why California is turning into a two class state. The middle class is selling off their houses to pocket 100k plus, and move to a more affordable area. The only problem is they are voting for the same terrible policies they fled from.

    Pfft. New developments in my area (with a 1 1/2 to 2 hour commute into DC) typically start in the mid-3 or -400s.

    Are those nearly 30 year old houses, with a little over 1200 square feet?

    In my area, there aren't a whole lot of those available (massive growth in the last 20 years); those would probably be in the mid-200s. Even townhomes in my area start in the 300s.
