The Gooferment can’t solve ANY problem.
In this PARTICULAR case, the Gooferment CREATES the problem with zoning, taxes, regulation, and other diktats.
Just ignore the fact that the mental institutions were closed to ‘mainstream” the mentally ill with “local neighborhood support” that was never provided because it was too expensive and NIMBY!
Then when property and rent skyrocket, the Gooferment blames the “free market”.
When individuals step up to solve problems, the Gooferment steps in to prevent it.
After all what would the politicians and bureaucrats do without the “homeless problem” to solve.
