Carson at HUD spells trouble for Obama's diversity rule

Ben Carson's appointment to head the Department of Housing and Urban Development likely would mean trouble for President Obama's new housing diversity rule and would put a noted skeptic of many government anti-poverty programs in control of many of them.
The famed neurosurgeon and former presidential candidate will spend Thanksgiving thinking about the possibility of serving as President-elect Trump's HUD secretary, a spokesman said Wednesday.
If he takes over the agency, many housing advocates will be left to wonder what his agenda is, given that he has no record on housing-related issues.

The guy is a brain surgeon I think he can figure out HUD. Also let's not forget if any democrats question him that is RACIST remember? I like him and he will do a great job at anything.

Diversity is discrimination.

9:51 - Forced Diversity causes incompetence in the workplace - the federal government agencies are stellar examples of hiring based on quotas instead of performance and demonstrated potential.

Hopefully, a huuuuge bunch that said they wouldn't work for the Trump administration will honor their bragging and leave. The taxpayer could see a major reduction in costs with no change in agency performance - these entitlists weren't doing anything anyway!

First thing for Dr Carson to do is to make section 8 housing a duration limited and means tested handout. Multiple generations in subsidized housing is a disincentive to personal responsibility.

If your boyfriend and baby-daddy's Cadillac is parked in the driveway, you should be ineligible. That 50" flat screen, new iPhone, cigarettes, and alcohol in your home means you can manage your budget and you should be ineligible.

I'm with 9:17, he would have been able to be a great President, and I'm sure with his background and attitude, he will be able to serve the U.S. with pride, dignity, and expertise. I look forward to having him in the Cabinet.
