    Thank you, Jason. You are spot on. There is no excuse when this 'well to do' city can't find a solution. These people have become the beggars at the temple gates. Who/what , will/can heal them? These are sick, dying, people...We treat feral animals better. At least the have some form of 'humane society' for them. Are we merely human beings, or, are we human(e) beings?

    The housing crises in Seattle is due to no rent cap, not the tax cuts

  • The Other Point Of View

    Kshama Sawant is the openly socialist city council member who once encouraged Boeing employees to simply 'take over' the factories and start making school buses and has been doing her best to drive Amazon completely out of town. Seattle citizens keep voting for her, so honestly they deserve the wasteland they are creating.

    Hahahahaha if the economy is
    Thriving we wouldn’t have homeless people; people would do odd jobs and anything that they could to make it .. there’s not even an odd jobs...
    They would work for others who are actually making money so I question this fantastic economy with jobs ❌ that are paying people $18,000 a year or less and then they have to pay for an apartment for $1500 wow 😮
    Car payments lights food $18,000 but we have a thriving economy?
    I pulled in my driveway every day with thousands of people homeless people who live in the park a lot of them educated they just got kicked out of their house between 2008 and 2010 and never came back because there were no jobs...😔

    all of these news shows are a faking joke. All the host does is bring up a topic, put up two talking heads from different sides of the isle, and all they do is recite canned talking points and try to shoehorn it into the context of the conversation. There’s no real debate or facts being discussed. Just rhetoric and they call it journalism. Lol

    Get the homeless people working, in a mental hospital, or in rehab.
    The libs lie is absurd. Income is going up for everyone. It is time for people who are capable and not willing to participate in society.

    Always about race, never about the problem. Guess it's the easy way out of doing anything. (edit) If race isn't enough, switch to 'Republicans' even when their not the ones making policies for these areas. And if everyone can't be rich, make everyone poor (that will work)

  • Mark Vehar

    A good place to start is to get socialists like Kshama Sawant (another AOC wanna be) out of office because they're policies are only compounding the problem. Komiki Konst (another AOC wanna be) or whatever her name is cannot offer any sensible logic due to emotional based thinking the solutions she offers are big government which compound the problem, The name of the game for socialist & Democrats is blame, blame, blame pass the buck deny fault. Quit the over reliance on government.

    They should make the homeless go around picking up trash and not just let them bum around all day. If they want to eat at a soup kitchen, they must put in a good days work.

    Funny how it’s the city’s that are doing so good that there is a serious homeless problem. People with the high paying jobs willing to pay the higher prices for housing a lack of building new homes and a population being forced out by the high cost of living cities can’t grow healthy if all the people aren’t represented and that’s the case city council members want rich to so donations so they pretty much do they’re bidding and the people with the least aren’t listened to because they really don’t have anything leftover to donate to politicians that will listen. So now they defund the programs that help the people they helped put out in the streets. The politicians need to remember this isn’t a Democratic run country it’s a republic the politicians may be elected by a 51 to 49 margin but it’s they’re job to do what’s right for all the people not just the 51%

    I find it interesting how the woman in red slid that racial-income difference in there but in the bits & pieces of this video, as well as other videos I’ve seen in the past related to this homeless issue in California from other channels, I’ve see more Whites living in tents and other less fortunate conditions...
    Big ups to those in the navigation team for their efforts 👍🏾

    That lady is as dumb as AOC! A tax break is not money given away. And the economy getting better in Seattle is a direct result of the tax cuts. Because that money not being paid to taxes is being spent on new jobs. And the so called "Housing Crisis" is actually due to the enormous amount of regulation, environmental impacts, and bureaucracy, builders have to overcome just to build new residential buildings.

  • Ryan DESTROYS -click bait here-

    Umm... I watched the vid, and I was just in Seattle last week, with a friend who helps take food out to the freeway tent city. It's mostly white people. let me repeat that, It's mostly whites, and mostly drug issues, mixed with felons who have nowhere left to go, they already used up their last 10 lifelines. This has nothing to do with income inequality.

    has Nomiki Konst ever visited the ares at all or does she just sit there promoting racist hate and blaming every thing on white Americans this type of grandstanding needs to stop "practice what she preaches and stop the hate speech" Dems need to work with the Republicans to help bring Trumps health care reforms for a better outcome for all Americans.

  • Rissa Marie

    The lady is red should probably do more research. I live in Seattle and here's what I see: most of the homeless people are white but not all- and we have so many people here from different cultures. Do not believe the race card- its immature to even pull in this day and age.
    Taxes and house rental prices are insanely high.
    People do drugs but some don't, like anywhere in the country it's up to person to choose what they do. There just more people here and its pretty easy to get.
    Traffic is a mess - there are so many people all the time on the roads because most chose to live away from their place of work.
    However, Seattle is growing- its probably one the fastest growing cities in the country. I meet people who just moved here from out of state all time so of course there is a housing problem. There's more people here than places to live.
