Hick­en­looper and home­less­ness

The Denver Post - - OPINION - Re: Brian Vande Krol,

“Gov­er­nor de­buts e≠orts to bat­tle home­less­ness with taxes on pot,” Nov. 27 news story.

From your ar­ti­cle about Gov. John Hick­en­looper’s plan for state spend­ing on home­less­ness:

“Soon after be­ing elected mayor in 2003, Hick­en­looper cre­ated a com­mis­sion to study the is­sue and em­braced a 10-year plan to end home­less­ness.”

“Colorado saw a 6 per­cent in­crease in home­less­ness in 2016, which ranks as the sev­enth­largest in the na­tion ... ““‘I’m dou­bling down,’ Hick­en­looper said.” This is a prime ex­am­ple of why failed gov­ern­ment pro­grams con­tinue to grow. Per­haps it is time to ad­mit that gov­ern­ment is par­tic­u­larly in­ept at com­pas­sion.
