Ben Carson's cruelty to old and disabled

Politicususa - Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson says he’s raising rents to put poor Americans to work, but according to a new study reported in The Washington Post, the majority of people who receive HUD rent subsidies are either elderly, disabled or already at work.

... If Congress approves Carson’s plan, then the monthly minimum rent charged by public-housing facilities would increase from $50 to $150. It would also increase rents paid by subsidized housing tenants from 30 percent of adjusted income to 35 percent of gross income, a much larger number.

In speaking about his plan, Carson has been quoted as saying that his goal is to “incentivize public housing recipients to reach their God-given potential.”
