HUD Director and authentic black American, Bennie-the-Blade Carson, has proposed changing how rental subsidies are calculated so that hundreds of thousands of low-income families would end up paying triple their current rent:
“Under the proposal, some of the poorest tenants would see their rents triple. Every non-elderly, non-disabled household would have to pay a minimum of $150 a month in rent. Right now, the minimum amount for the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher program and public housing is $50.”
The mind boggles thinking about the kind of housing one can get for $50 Ameros/month. And he wants to triple that?
Also/too, The Blade, would allow public-housing agencies and property owners (Hi slum-lord Sean Hannity!) to impose work requirements on their residents. Seniors over the age of 65 and people with disabilities would receive exemptions, so that’s working out well for them as Babs-the-Impaler would say. I swear to Blog, Dudes like Carson would line-up to take the soup away from Oliver and the crutch away from Tiny Tim.
No word on how many of these tenants have $31,000 dining sets in their offices. Odd, that.
