    Liberals never provide facts! Ben Carson was referring to people who’s rent is $50 a month.

    Scrolling through the comments I see a lot of black people hating on Carson cause he made something of himself and is against the generational welfare that the blacks have enjoyed for too long.

    I didn’t watch the video. But I’m guessing that the onus of it is the “Carson tripled rent on low income “. Facts are, it’s only the very bottom bracket that would be affected, thus taking the $50 rent and making it $150. Nobody can say that’s not reasonable, the rate was set in the 70s and never was raised since. And Carson pledged that this would not affect the elderly and disabled. Every liberal be like “oh he forgets where he came from “. No, he remembers exactly where he came from and that’s why he’s so perfect for the job. He knows what is reasonable in these situations and what is just a “plantation “ mindset. The thinking of slavery days, that someone else takes care of us, only they no longer work in exchange for housing food and healthcare.

    I know exactly what your talking about, I am on Section 8, disabled and get $750.00 a month from our lovely government and they raised my rent from $773.00, I paid $140.00 and now my rent is $1040.00 I pay $413.00 which is more than half my check. This is what they did to my Mom.

    I love how they wont let him on the show to defend his stance. Typical The View.

    Last time he was on he talked circles around them. Raven couldn't even take part in the conversation because how intelligent he was. This show is nothing but sexist.

    Wow TRIPLE RENT? Get your facts people. Minimum rent payment was $50 proposed raise to $150. I have a friend who grew up in south chicago that pays $2000 for his one bedroom apartment because he was determined to be successful. Why? BECAUSE THIS IS AMERICA. No capable human being should be expected to pay $50 a month for rent. Where's the incentive to increase household income in that??? Basic necessities are available at affordable prices here in the U.S. Triple sounds bad but YOU HAVE TO CONDSIDER ITS ON A BASE OF $50. This is being spun WAY OUT OF PROPORTION.

    Ben Carson is one stupid smart man he lacks common sense Trump gave him this position because he was black and lived in poverty as a kid Ben needs a reality check he needs to realize things are not as they were when he was a kid. Rent use to be 100 bucks a month back in the day and people still snuggled. That's why it's time to help people purchase homes at affordable prices.

    Ben Carson grew up poor in Detroit with a single mother with a 3rd grade education. Throughout his childhood his mother admitted herself into mental institutions when life became overwhelming. He knows the struggles of impoverished people, but he chooses to forget where he came from.

    That's exactly what Ben needs to do. I finished high school and I went to college at 50 years of age and I received BA degree. I am now a senior citizen receiving a small 500.00 dollar pension and $1200 social security check and I'm scuffling trying to make ends meet. My rent has recently gone up 25.00 and at 72 I'm thinking about finding a job.

    I have a question for anyone who would like to answer why certain people think it is the taxpayers/government responsibility to take of its poor /or lazy MF's who doesn't want to work it's my my responsibility to help you eat and clothes your kids and provide shelter for your family you created I didn't ask you to lay down and have 1 or 2 or 10 children in the first place that's is what I call a you problem why should I have to pay for public school I don't have any kids you should be able to pay for services that you use where is the benefit in paying for people who make mistakes I never broken any law why should I pay for public housing it is not what I want to spend MY HARD OWN MONEY ON YES I WORK FULLTIME BEEN DOING IT SINCE 1992. Yes I even worked while I was in HIGH SCHOOL so blaming people for your own problems it's your fault the situation you were in not if my btw my father was born in the 1920s my mother is a 1930s they never went to public housing my Father was in the army during World War II my Mother was a nurse they both end up getting married and had 5 children we grow up in a middle class neighborhood my parents where married for 46yrs my Dad pass away in 2005 and my Mom pass away in 2010 not once did they receive public assistance so yes it can he done if you want it bad enough so I wish people would stop complaining/bitching life is not all about you and you and what can get out if it learn to provide for your own family it's not any else jobs to raise your family the responsibility is yours.

    most people that live on welfare do not need it, they lazy around while we kill ourselves to work. This is definitely a motivation for those lazy folks. Funny thing those who actually need the welfare are not on welfare but are working their butt off just like your mum did....your mum Whoopie didn't stay on welfare because she knew it was wrong to steal from the sweat of another person.....a friend of mine had an aunt who is on welfare and has been on welfare since she was 32 years, now 45 tell me how that is helping anyonme. America has so many options- GO AND WORK

    I think Ben Carson hated his own mother for being poor! Remember he claimed that he attacked her with a hammer! Most of these people are trying to keep their heads above water, so their children have a chance to one day change their lives, and that of others. You are a disappointment to all hard working parents, that sacrifice for their children.

    California is already dealing with a massive homelessness crisis, Ben just wants to export that to the rest of the country. But then again, if he did this, you can guarantee Trump’s approval rating plummeting.
    Eliminate corporate welfare. That’d pay for housing 1000 times over.

    Ben Carson is the world's Whitest Black. Hey, he works for Trump, is anyone really surprised? I mean, this is a guy who thinks the ancient Egypt pyramids were used solely for grain storage. (Check Wikipedia, they weren't). He has some other really wacky views for a guy who was a neurosurgeon, but not enough room here. I guess Trump figured he needed at least 1 token black in his administration, and that's Ben Carson.

    "But, everyone is getting jobs" "unemployment is down to 3.9% lowest in history" Riiiiggghhhtt! Everyone is getting minimum wage jobs that aren't even covering the cost of living. Wages have been stagnant for years and don't reflect inflation. Fact is, they don't mind giving you work to lower stats that make them look good but, they'll never put you in a position to get out from under there thumb. All the while the mega companies are raking in record earnings of revenue that they use to buy back their own shares furthering the income gap. Smh. America is truly a bank and each of us have varying loans and finance rates. The shift or overthrow of power will only happen when the masses realize that the 1%ers could care less if you live or die and collectively join together to get rid of said system.

    Carson went from being a poor student to receiving academic honors and eventually attending medical school. As a doctor, he became director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital at age 33 and earned fame for his groundbreaking work separating conjoined twins. Twins later died...
