Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

SACRAMENTO -- Gov. Gavin Newsom called growing homelessness in California a national disgrace as he announced Tuesday that he is launching a task force to find solutions amid a housing crisis in the most populous state. The Democratic governor said the state has lacked a strategy to curb homelessness but argued that answers will come from the local level. He said the group will work with cities and counties to develop regional plans for addressing the issue. Newsom made the announcement in Oakland, where county officials said the number of homeless people rose 43 percent over the last two years. Recent data from other counties has shown large increases, too.

LOL, "task force" is so cliche' perhaps they can talk to the police, who have been hamstrung; or perhaps talk to the neighborhood associations, who have been stymied.

Moonbeam Jr. is going to study all kinds of problems his party created: high gas prices, high electricity prices, homelessness. No doubt the "solution" will be higher taxes and higher spending.

Exactly ... the solution will not solve the problem, but make us pay for it.

Maybe he can "study" Garcetti's failure on Measure H and how LA spent $619M last year with no discernible progress towards, well, anything.

Los Angeles Spent $619 Million on Homelessness Last Year With Nothing to Show for it.
