(CNSNews.com) -- President Barack Obama has requested over half-a-billion dollars for Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) programs that provide housing assistance to homeless or HIV-positive people in drug treatment.

For the Fiscal Year 2013 National Drug Control budget, Obama has requested $25.6 billion, including $542.4 million to fund HUD programs that provide housing to individuals in drug treatment, according to the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), which is charged with developing that budget.

Maybe he can get it from Ben Bernanke’s smokin’ printing presses, because the U.S. taxpayers can’t even pay their gasoline bill or their mortgages. They are tapped out and are on food stamps along with about 100 million of their fellow citizens.

He’d bankrupt the country over homosexual minority HIV-ridden drug addicts but he’s all for killing a perfectly normal innocent baby. There’s something wrong with that logic.

Well they already get money to buy the drugs, they just need a place to *do* the drugs. Also a new car wouldn’t hurt so they can drive to their dealers.

And putting them in a neighborhood near you..coming soon. All this HUD and Section 8 nonsense has literally RUINED many solid working class and middle class areas of town. Its as if you either live around the criminal trash element or move somewhere too expensive. Middle class areas are slowly but surely shrinking thanks to all these bullshit Government programs.

Lemme get this straight..thousands of taxpayers who’ve had their mortgages forclosed upon are being asked to help pony up over half a billion dollars to give free housing to drug addicts. Is that about right?

Oh I wholeheartedly DISAGREE. He was PROHIBITED from spending money on Czars, he was PROHIBITED from implementing the DREAM Act, he has refused to defend DOMA, he has refused to prosecute the BLACK goons outside the polling places, he has REFUSED to deport illegal law breaking aliens, and there are many more illegal acts by this MARXIST and the Congress cowers under their desks for fear of the State run media.

Do I have this right? More big spending plans but no need to actually put them in a budget? I guess it’s the Obamuzzie pay-as-you-go- program. We pay——he goes?

Uh......no. Start a private liberal charity. That ought to bring in at least $5 to help "the cause."

If the homo base is suppose to be so big, why not have them pay for it and leave the rest of us out of it? We've never supported their lifestyle anyway.

The $542.4 million in drug control funding for HUD marks an estimated 18 percent increase of $96.4 million over the FY 2012 enacted level of $446 million.

I'd like to use a word to describe this that liberals are very fond of: unsustainable.

He is a vicious pain inflicting SOB behind victim figures. It’s communist historicism, the typical Marxist profile that Political Correctness protects.

We need Nuremberg style trials for this type of support.

Putting drug addicts and ex convicts into middle class neighborhoods, then stopping the police from “discriminating” by enforcing the existing laws, thereby destroying the neighborhood - this is very high on the Obama agenda.

I do not exaggerate this was in a WSJ article.

I do not like most of the social policies of Mitt Romney and have never been a supporter of his. But I disagree with those on this forum who say there is no difference between Romney and Obama. That is just insane. Obama is deliberately destroying this nation and lessening its place in the world. That has been the plan all along. It was the dream of his father and the Kenyan is carrying it out.

Putting drug addicts and ex convicts into middle class neighborhoods

Yep. A nice, family oriented, well kept neighborhood gets a welfare housing unit built right in the middle of it. Crime goes up, housing value goes down. Good people move out, trash moves in. The nice little neighbor hood quickly becomes a democrat slum.

Exactly, none of this "play nice" crap we've been getting. These guys are lawbreakers. Laws against humanity ought to be enforced.

This has been going on for AGES in NYS. I used to work as a clerk for the Section 8 program back in the nineties; would make your hair stand on end!! Taxpayer dollars used to give magic carpet rides to the 'burbs for the dregs of humanity. In the hope that they will adopt their new neighbor's way of life. Yeah right.

The wee hour parties due to no job to go to the next day; the used condoms, trash and used diapers tossed out of windows, etc. etc. Crack baggies on the front lawn--yep the "for sale" signs would pop up like mushrooms as another decent neighborhood would go down the tubes with state approval. Best to move to the country as most urbanites are frightened of it. Oh and here in upstate NY there is "special funding" for HIV "clients" so that they can get free anti-HIV meds.

Of course Obama wants to destroy the suburbs.

http://www.nationalreview.com/articles/312807/burn-down-suburbs-stanley-kurtz

“President Obama is not a fan of America’s suburbs. Indeed, he intends to abolish them. With suburban voters set to be the swing constituency of the 2012 election, the administration’s plans for this segment of the electorate deserve scrutiny. Obama is a longtime supporter of “regionalism,” the idea that the suburbs should be folded into the cities, merging schools, housing, transportation, and above all taxation. To this end, the president has already put programs in place designed to push the country toward a sweeping social transformation in a possible second term. The goal: income equalization via a massive redistribution of suburban tax money to the cities.”

There are many other articles stating basically the same thing.
