    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.

    The problem with such people like Ben Carson is that even if they sit down with the less privileged they won't change. Ben Carson's brain is so up there he can't grasp the reality of the poor. Didn't he just propose to buy an very expensive dining set for his office? The hypocrisy!!!

    Is nobody going to address the fact that there will be exemptions included for the elderly, those with disabilities or any other reason "determined by the public housing agency".
    Has anybody read the document itself? Or are they getting their information from news sources that have already put their spin on it?

    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 Trumpโ€™s approval rating plummeting.
    Eliminate corporate welfare. Thatโ€™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... I believe there is something Horribley wrong with this Picture " Neurosurgeon" .. Read his Bio.. very interesting.. a" Neurosurgeon"

    No one wants to live in project and many have goals and dreams of getting out. The solution is fixing a broken education system. Mr Trump has a real loser in place her name is Betsy DeVost. The reason she is education secretary is to make sure his base and other Americans stay stupid. Remember the facts white male high school dropouts voted for Trump.

How about all the people that you end up going to schools and get screwed over like the ICDC, the tech school that was in Pittsburgh that went under, the Art Institute, The Culinary Institute. It seems that the schools were designed to hit the poverty stricken neighborhoods for-profit make people believe they're going to work their goals to get somewhere and then all the sudden close leave shut down the program and then we're back to square one fighting just to make money to get out

    Thank you Whoopie. These are some scary times we're living in. I lived in section 8 housing as I was going through college and left an abusive husband with an infant. My first job didn't pay much after college but the second one paid better and my child got older. I graduated to market rate during the second year
    Of the second job. I was working two jobs to get out of section 8 by then. Now my medical assistance clients are in the same boat as me. Some of them are homeless and there's a certain way homelessness affects physical and mental health. It drives up health care costs. Its a war on the poor.

    I'm a 43 year old white woman. I live in New York. Been working since I'm 13 years old. Lost my job that I was at for 14 years 5 years ago. Had no choice but to apply for public assistance. All I qualify for is $153 a month for food. And I had to sit there and watch countless numbers African American, Russians, Middle Eastern individuals, demand go crazy and make scenes in front of total strangers because they feel but they should be getting more. They sit there with their iPhones and iPads dripping and gold jewelry, with their Michael Kors handbags, and three and four children in tow, and have the audacity to demand things being given to them.

    I don't know but what if housing and college, day care, food stamps along with a required part time job. for lets say 2-4 years for families in need. These families knowing they have a limited time on these benefits as well as an opportunity for a degree and better paying jobs would then be able to get off system permanently. Because what you get is housing forever foodstamps forever and generations become dependent. But if there is a limit on time, and enough time to graduate college. Could take online classes or a trade and they dont have to worry about bills food housing for that amount of time would motivate families to seek a better future. Because the reality is the mindset is "im stuck". And those who take advantage because they dont want to work, and those that do want better cant because there are working their asses off just trying to stay a float. As a tax payer i would rather pay for supporting families in every way long enough for them to go to school and graduate and find employment then to let a healthy person who just doesn't want to work and collect a check for the rest of their lives.
