When Americans think of progressive cities, the first one that comes to mind for many is San Francisco. Over the decades, it has built a reputation as one of the most left-leaning cities that hasn’t seen a social program it didn’t like. Unfortunately, the solutions to their social issues, including massive levels of homelessness, aren’t getting the job done.
Not even close.
The issue is one that is conspicuous because it should be easy to solve considering the compassion the city claims to have for their fellow man. As our EIC noted in an article the other day, there are more homeless people in San Francisco than children enrolled in public school. This is an indefensible reality for a city that claims to be so forward-thinking in its politics.
John Stoseel took to ReasonTV to address the issue from a different perspective. He focuses on the failures of the proposed solutions over the decades that have led to increases rather than decreases in the homeless population.
