FEEDING AT THE PUBLIC TROUGH

 

$25.1 billion annual funding for

United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

 

§ 8, the subsidized housing program, directs residents to pay a portion of their rent based on their income with the federal government paying the balance.  A subsidy for property owners who would not be able to receive those high rents subject to free enterprise.

Government is not helping low-income people.  It is hindering them by over taxation and bidding up the price of low-priced housing.

That universal economic law of supply and demand cannot be controlled with government subsidies.  When government tries to intercede in this manner, the opposite of the desired effect will always be the aftermath.

Grants to owners of old buildings cause blight.  New construction shuns the area.

Local offices of Community Development and Human Services never demand copies of a tax-exempt nonprofit corporation’s federal annual informational tax return Form 990 including Schedule A with all six pages of each form along with all attachments, statements and extensions as filed with the IRS for the most recent year.  Many of the nonprofit corporations that are given money do not file this mandatory annual financial report.  Neither Offices of Community Development or Human Services do background checks on the officers and directors of these nonprofit corporations.  It is unlawful for a bank or any financial institution with depositors to loan money without first making a background check.  Cities give money away without these background checks because they receive a ten percent commission from the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to run their offices with.

How much is tax-exempt nonprofit corporation management taking out for unconscionable salaries, pension plan contributions and other benefits?  When taxpayers pay for all of this, the taxpayers should know what the amounts are.

How many of these officers and directors have criminal records?

This is federal grant money that our grandchildren will have to pay back.  When will this child molestation stop?

The sole purpose of United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Community Development and other government programs is to provide jobs for government employees and nonprofit corporation management who are not qualified for the private enterprise sector.

98-07-27     Loan documents including a Contract for Loan Guarantee Assistance, Note, Fiscal Agency Agreement and Master Fiscal Agency Agreement between the City of Spokane and Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for the purpose of obtaining and guarantying a § 108 loan.  This loan is for $22.65 million plus a $1 million grant for the construction of a new Nordstrom building in conjunction with the redevelopment of River “Pork” Square.  Spokane City will be the guarantor of this loan for private business. These parasites plunder the public purse and molest our grand children with public debt.

TAXPAYERS SHOULD NOT BE FORCED TO CONTRIBUTE

MONEY TO ANY RELIGIOUS ORGANIZATION.

Federally funded Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS), an organization with a bunch of biddies that know nothing, but want to run everything.  Police officers find them hard to tolerate.  Besides, we do not need or want a private police force that answers only to a City Police Chief, and not to a Citizens Review Commission.

Every city has a voluntary, unified charity organization to receive and disperse funds to local charities that participate in the fundraising.

Citizens can even specify to which individual charity they wish their contribution to frequent.  Citizens vote with their money.  It is their freedom of speech.

When government gives taxpayer money to charities, government is depriving citizens of this first amendment right.

Taxpayers should not be forced to contribute money to any religious organization.  The United States Constitution and most state constitutions provide for separation of church and state.

Most city councils and state legislatures violate this separation of church and state by contributing taxpayer money to religious organizations.

These religious organizations are not required to file a tax-exempt nonprofit corporation’s federal annual informational tax return Form 990 nor state mandatory annual financial reports.
