Re: “County Health Director: Oakland's Housing Crisis Is a Prescription for Sicker, Shorter Lives

As I have posted in other forums, the laws of economics are confirmed. Government cannot fill all of the needs of people in life; the homeless have been with us forever, and no amount of government programs will change that fact. Oakland, like all cities, must attract upper income residents that have the resources to pay taxes and contribute to the local economy- not to merely take resources and not contribute. It is a sad fact, but a fact nonetheless. Government services are provided by the taxes of productive members of society, the givers so to speak, not the takers. This is by no means a conviction of the poor, but rather a n uncomfortable statement of cold economic principles.
