Section 8 ends after February; millions could be left homeless

Section 8 ends after February; millions could be left homeless
9 Comments

More than four million households that depend on the federal government's welfare program under the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) rental assistance -- and other programs -- could see the money run out after February.

While public housing authorities received January funding and expect to receive February funding, a continued government shutdown means Section 8 Housing Recipients will not be able to make rent subsidy payments to landlords for March 1st, meaning tenants could face eviction.

It will be a tough transition for the freeloaders and professional bums that have had generations of living on the welfare plantation.

For the truly in need, elderly and disabled, there is charity through churches and other charitable organizations (that is what they are for) and why they are in a not for profit status.

 



This is also a good time to pitch in and help the truly needy and rise to the occasion by checking in on folks that need food, or firewood, or help in general.

To anyone here in this country illegally and receiving benefits, this is your opportunity to get out.

    I wonder whether anyone here is actually on Section 8. This website alone is so unrealistically deplorable in relation to poor that it is mind boggling and outweighs anything else that might be helpful. Speaking of Section 8 employees - scumbags, criminals and sadists: if they stop paying landlords, the landlord must go to court and evict the tenant. I doubt that the court would agree. Going on a street at old age and/'or with disability and/or with whatever else legitimate problems is imminent death after a single night. If you are really and truly this dumb and do not understand it, and calling poor "freeloaders", than why don't you go back to watch your games and TV and stop participating in adult conversations?

    californication has become a serious drain of our federal tax dollars. we can only hope that section 8 and food stamps are cut off to the whole country and that those affected have friends and family that are able to absorb their needs. abolish the entire system and everyone on it. it has become a way of life for literally generations of families. come up with a new plan and everyone must re-apply with proper credentials. no illegals of any kind. force them to go back where they came from. Mr. President shut this country down, including the doj, fbi, state dept, and congress! stock up on dehydrated food and necessities, people. let's get it on!

    Hi I feel for the disabled who won't have section eight the folks who really need this includes probably other blind folks I have known back east. I do not have this myself never could because landlords raised monthly rental to the point where section eight wouldn't take that apartment on their lists. I tried for eight years or more to get section eight without success so becamehomeless told I had to wait eight years to get it at all although my disability is very evident.

    As long as we have the Rothschilds controlling the money and the parasites in Dump City (D.C.), it is mathematically impossible to pay off the debt. The reason for this is that "money" has to be "borrowed" to pay the rolling over of existing debt. It's a vicious circle. It can't catch up. Fractional Reserve Banking is the cause. I know this sounds strange, but it's true. You can do a search on this, but here's just one:

    It Is Now Mathematically Impossible To Pay Off The U.S. National Debt

    Good. Section 8 is the reason why rent has become so expensive.

    In California, Section 8 provides over $4000/mo in rental assistance. Many landlords would only rent out there homes to Section 8 qualifiers.

    Also, most rental agencies and apartment complexes base there rental prices on what Section 8 pays out. When HUD comes out with new rates in September, landlords raise their rates as well. HUD section 8 has established a floor price for the SFR rental market.

    By propping up the rental market, it has also help prop up the real estate market for overpriced houses.

    Hundreds of thousands of government employed parasites will be eligible for permanent layoff in a few days, EBT cards stop working in February and Section 8 stops paying around the first of March. If, we could figure out how to get the illegals out and stop the billions in foreign aid to countries like Israel, we might actually get out of debt one day.

    I would rather see the food stamps run out first. So the Hoards of Freeloaders will take to the streets. And start Looting Himans, who will in return, start gunning them down for Trespassing
