Default California has the nationís highest poverty rate

TRUE: California has the nationís highest poverty rate, when factoring in cost-of-living

Quote:
"If you look at the official poverty measure in California, weíre about average with the rest of the country," Mayes said. "But if you use the supplemental poverty measure, we are in the lead. We have the highest poverty rate in the nation -- higher than New Mexico, higher than any of the southern states, Louisiana, Alabama, higher than Idaho."

Why is liberal California the poverty capital of America?

Guess which state has the highest poverty rate in the country? Not Mississippi, New Mexico, or West Virginia, but California, where nearly one out of five residents is poor. That's according to the Census Bureau's Supplemental Poverty Measure, which factors in the cost of housing, food, utilities and clothing, and which includes noncash government assistance as a form of income.

...

Further contributing to the poverty problem is California's housing crisis. More than four in 10 households spent more than 30% of their income on housing in 2015. A shortage of available units has driven prices ever higher, far above income increases. And that shortage is a direct outgrowth of misguided policies.

"Counties and local governments have imposed restrictive land-use regulations that drove up the price of land and dwellings," explains analyst Wendell Cox. "Middle-income households have been forced to accept lower standards of living while the less fortunate have been driven into poverty by the high cost of housing." The California Environmental Quality Act, passed in 1971, is one example; it can add $1 million to the cost of completing a housing development, says Todd Williams, an Oakland attorney who chairs the Wendel Rosen Black & Dean land-use group. CEQA costs have been known to shut down entire homebuilding projects. CEQA reform would help increase housing supply, but there's no real movement to change the law.

Extensive environmental regulations aimed at reducing carbon dioxide emissions make energy more expensive, also hurting the poor. By some estimates, California energy costs are as much as 50% higher than the national average. Jonathan A. Lesser of Continental Economics, author of a 2015 Manhattan Institute study, "Less Carbon, Higher Prices," found that "in 2012, nearly 1 million California households faced … energy expenditures exceeding 10% of household income. In certain California counties, the rate of energy poverty was as high as 15% of all households." A Pacific Research Institute study by Wayne Winegarden found that the rate could exceed 17% of median income in some areas.

...
Quote:
With a permanent majority in the state Senate and the Assembly, a prolonged dominance in the executive branch and a weak opposition, California Democrats have long been free to indulge blue-state ideology while paying little or no political price. The state's poverty problem is unlikely to improve while policymakers remain unwilling to unleash the engines of economic prosperity that drove California to its golden years.

Red States Are Welfare Queens


Take a look at the difference between federal spending on any given state and the federal taxes received from that state. We measure the difference as a dollar amount: Federal Spending per Dollar of Federal Taxes. A figure of $1.00 means that particular state received as much as it paid in to the federal government. Anything over a dollar means the state received more than it paid; anything less than $1.00 means the state paid more in taxes than it received in services. The higher the figure, the more a given state is a welfare queen.

Of the twenty worst states, 16 are either Republican dominated or conservative states. Let's go through the top twenty.

New Mexico: $2.03
Mississippi: $2.02
Alaska: $1.84
Louisiana: $1.78
West Virginia: $1.76
North Dakota: $1.68
Alabama: $1.66
South Dakota: $1.53
Kentucky: $1.51
Virginia: $1.51
Montana: $1.47
Hawaii: $1.44
Maine: $1.41
Arkansas: $1.41
Oklahoma: $1.36
South Carolina: $1.35
Missouri: $1.32
Maryland: $1.30
Tennessee: $1.27
Idaho: $1.21

The LAO also cites figures from a March 2016 report by the Pew Charitable Trusts. It found the federal government spent nearly $356 billion in California in fiscal year 2014, for salaries and wages, grants, contracts, retirement benefits and other benefits. That same year, California paid about $369 billion in total federal tax -- or about $13 billion more than it received -- according to the Internal Revenue Service Data Book, 2014.

Another widely-cited study from 2007 says California received only 78 cents for every dollar it paid in federal taxes.

Damn. They didn't teach you geography in high school? Or were you too busy whacking off and playing video games? Los Angeles, where the Los Angeles Rams play, is a few hundred miles south of Silicon Valley. Not only that, but there are parts of Inglewood that are, historically, the most upscale AA communities in the USA. Nearby View Park has the nickname, "Black Beverly Hills." If you don't know what you're talking about, you should really STFU.

Guess they have crews to go around and clean up 400 tons of shyt ( every 3 months)

https://o4anews.com/crews-clean-up-4...waste-needles/

Dems don't give a shyt as long as they get the votes.

Yep. Homelessness is a huge problem all across America. Like FDR said, nobody in America should be without employment, food, a home, security in old age, health care...

Why can't we get there?

I'm in View Park, Windsor Hills, and Baldwin Hills (all in LA just north of Inglewood), just about every day. Very wealthy black areas along Crenshaw Blvd. for the past 60 years. The Crenshaw area isn't anywhere near as hood as people think it is. Those areas are dealing with some major gentrification issues right now.

Inglewood, which has been mostly black and Latino for a good 40 years, is also going through gentrification. Home prices and rent are skyrocketing.

On a side note, I hate the term "Black Beverly Hills." Some people in the community like it while others hate it.

The cost of living is pretty outrageous in LA. Good luck finding a one bedroom for under $1,500 in a decent area. Or buying a home for under a good $700K. There are a lot of homeless people who were kicked out of their apartment and now live in their car. Tents are popping up in a lot of places. Also factor in that a lot of homeless people around the country find their way to LA. I guess being homeless in regions of the country that get really cold in the winter must be pretty terrible.

When I lived in Miami, I saw homeless old guys picking mangoes off the trees alongside a canal near the park where they were camped out. I thought, If I'm ever homeless, this is the place to do it. I remember when I lived in Denver and every winter there would be a story about a homeless person found frozen in a dumpster. Makes sense, if you're homeless, to head South.

Poverty will always exist it’s a simple model of a distribution of finite resources. In fact as the nominal population grows the poverty rate will increase at a greater rate than absolute population growth. In the future it will get worse as resources become more scarce.
