Left Coast Dilemma: Why California Ranks #1 In Poverty

Government creates nothing, but it does destroy. The Left Coast is famous for its reverence for government interference into all aspects of life. The results should surprise no one. California has the highest poverty rate in the nation. Why? What’s the way out? And what are the chances that Californians will choose the way out?

Drugs and sports betting will be legalized here in The New Nation of California,
we can't allow a sh*thole state like Nevada or country like Portugal have an advantage over us

Thank you for the videos,  Ask any career social worker/social service worker, so many people are encouraged not to work by the social service system and then poverty for life.  Love Freedom

Because the system is sat up by the rich for the rich, and because of the welfare state is an industry by itself.

The governments didn't want to see those poverty lines and now everything is automated with progress of course; people get their EBT Cards through the mail or one visit a federal building; and shazam their entitled, so there's no bread lines now. When food inflation picks up and it exceeds their budget that's when the sheeeeeet will hit the fan. That's part of the reason they have that huge police state and for terrorism; more like the gubermint's imposed tyranny and terrorism!

Trump is just a lier and Just fools believe in that story of "america greatest country" and "developed" nation. U.S.A and Europe are broken. South America and Central America remain being worse but U.S.A is on its way to the chaos.

Stop being so foolish !!! It is not socialism fault but the jews who control the congress and americans money.

17th highest in absolute. Only first if you adjust for cost of living which is different from place to place in California. Florida is 2nd by this metric. Average median wage (middle number) is $64,500. One of the richest in the nation. Most of the problem has to do with housing speculation. It's crazy expensive to buy a house and the only properties left are in the desert.

Making several states wouldn't work due to the lack of a local water supplys, LA and SD get their water from the Colorado and Northern California snow melt, Central California or the farmers get their water from Northern California. It would cause more problems than it fixes to split up the state, just let the whole state fail and they can learn their lesson and start over with new leadership who will have the people they represent in mind when making policy.

As the capitol of Mexico, of course California is poor.  They are also pooping in the streets.

Here is a very interesting thesis on why poverty is worst where wealth is greatest. http://www.henrygeorge.org/pcontents.htm Are rents higher in the area being discussed?

Just because Democrats need to give the money to illegal immigrants and the productive mu-slims, and in return, the latter would vote for them. The Democrats are destroying the whole state, and in long run, the whole nation!

The U.S. has been declining since 1963. There is no reason to think that this downward trend will change.

"In business, when you succeed you get more money," is that what happened when the government bailed-out the financial industry?

mariocrivera1000

Most of the money California spent on addressing poverty went to law-enforcement. There lies the problem.

Wow…just keep making up more regulations higher taxes, higher rents, the only people who can afford to stay there are the really rich, and immigrants, who you give all the freebies to. Time to leave california.

Fucking largest welfare economy on the planet.
The left coast should be walled off and the three states named thusly in order of South to North:
Mexifornia
Cucklandia
Libtardia

All libtards and Illegals shall henceforth be rounded up and deposited on the Western side of said wall.

Can you please cite your source for this claim?

Because when I did a search for poverty rates by state, Wikipedia shows that California does NOT have the highest poverty rate. Granted, that listing is from 2014, but I haven't been able to find a more recent listing.

Your assistance would be appreciated.

We are going to have to go a socialist system any way people! It doesn’t matter how pro capitalistic you are. Capitalism is failing regardless. Millennials are in so much debt not going to buy houses or cars in the near future or have children. It’s not millennials fault they were born into a system that has no jobs because of increased automation and corporate greed. College is a scam. You can bet your sweet ass the auto and housing market will collapse again within the next decade. Student loan debt will bring everyone to there knees and leave them… Read more »

Not quite.

High poverty states are in the South.

California is a "time tunnel picture of the future" of the entire USA.
Soon USA will Californiaize completely. It is actually happening already and we all know that.
Sooner or later the Dems will control again the Houses and the Oval Office, and impose their now fanatical extreme
leftism on all of us, because they know that snowflakes and large sectors of minorities fanatically like/want this. Screwed.

Shame that people don't realize that it's liberal policies that cause these problems. So many people from California, Illinois and New Jersey moving to Colorado and they keep bringing their liberal/socialist mindset and never acknowledge that those idealologies are what created the problems in the places they left.

California is a dictatorship run by communists. They do what they want when they want and don’t care about breaking the law. They thumb their nose at the Federal Government knowing full well the Feds won’t do anything to stop them. They have turned a once Beautiful state into a cesspool and will continue to destroy this country. What have the communists brought to the table of life that’s been beneficial and meaningful to mankind? They bring slavery, poverty and death.

Thank you doctor Paul!!! It's true and it's by design in california…. they spent allegedly, 80K per person oer yearmillion a year
On each homeless, ,but that's a big fat LIE!!!!! I'll bet the city officials all gave themselves a huge bonus instead…. we have more empty HOUSES, EACH COULD BE BOUGHT FOR 80K FROM BANKS…. or give the homless the 80k a year to pay for rent etc… either way would work….

When your not paying any taxes of course you want a bigger gov't. The rich didn't get rich by accident. Don't hate the rich for being rich blame the poor for being poor. Opportunities are available you have to able to achieve.Coddling people only stifles their God given talents.

California has the fifth largest economy in the worldCapitalism is thriving here that is the reason for your wealth disparityThere's nothing socialist about California doesn't have Medicare for all doesn't have free college tuitionDoesn't have proper rent control but we do have Proposition 13That helps leave California schools at the bottom unlike New Jersey that has no cap on property taxThe problem is greed the lack of unions to combat that greed funny how he just touches on the fact that wages have not gone up in this country but thats government's fault not the corporations that corrupt our governmentTheir… Read more »
