    Everyone on the panel speaking here are millionaires. Why dont they spend all their money on housing for the poor? Asking for a friend...

    Normally I would agree with Ben but this is so wrong. God is close to the poor. He gives people the power to obtain wealth. He is a provider. Poverty do not come from God nor is he the guider of it. But he never condemns the poor or make the poor poorer. He never looks down on the poor. He loves the poor and he blesses the poor mightily. He is also a helper and he delivers people from poverty and the mentality of it. Everyone makes mistakes. I love Ben and he will always be one of my role models. He is still a great christian man. Nobody is perfect. There are many of things that Ben say and does that is very wonderful and Godly and loving for people. Ben will always be great in my eyes. An amazing man of integrity and honesty. So forgive him people and if not, then I am sorry for what he did. Can you forgive me? :)

    Liberal Lunatics Most Hollywood Liberals have no idea how poor people live... We have crippled the poor people in this country by giving them no hope for every leaving a life on welfare. Generations of families never leave Government assistance. No money for food or housing but can spend over 70,00 dollars for a 3 years old Halloween costume. Welfare mentality

    What percentage of the people living in POVERTY are so called asylum and refugee claimants?
    What percentage are ILLEGALS and their children? Get rid of them and the number of poverty will drop dramatically.
    And finally how many are SINGLE MOTHERS who were not married *at the time they chose to have a baby?* IF they can CHOOSE to have a baby
    on their own, let them CHOOSE to support it too. But we can't hold mothers RESPONSIBLE for their choices.
    Those living in subsidized housing live like Queens compared to poor Americans who don't live in subsidized housing.
    Many of their children follow their mothers and end up living it subsidized housing because life is relatively EASY when your housing costs are LIMITED based on how little you CLAIM you make. (not what you make illegally OR don't claim at all)
    If life was so TOUGH in subsidized housing, they wouldn't keep having bastards OR encouraging their children to have bastards of their own.
    Why shouldn't they pay MORE?

    i understand it’s easy to defend the idea that people need to have access to affordable housing, but what other solutions are there to do?

    Maybe Ben Carson just knows what it is like. Maybe Ben Carson realized that handouts never helped anyone. Give a man a fish he eats for a day. Teach him to fish and he'll eat everyday.

    If there wasn't minimum wage then there wouldn't be lower class but according to I think both parties 10 - 13 dollars is good enough

  • Mom to Empress in the 3D

    Yes! That is just the families able to get assistance. My family is going to be homeless on December 1st and we cannot get assistance as a single mom with two special needs teens. I just graduated from college, and cannot find work or housing. This is why we need each other more than ever.

    That would make them move out the housing(Government) system program! Smart plan Ben! Because if you think less, you will get less! We we we we we we! So, if your father wanted to get out the projects why encourage people to stay in the projects? SMH! I stay in the projects and I'm here to tell you if the rent went up alot of the bad ones(The ones who don't want anything) would move out and it would become a community instead of a project X!

    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.

  • G Milla
    G Milla 2 months ago

    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.

  • Barry Dunn

    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.

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.

    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.
