From what their wikipedia article mention, it's a voucher for low rent appartment. Why wouldn't poor people , chronically unemployed, students without parental support, ex-convict or recent immigrants have access to them. Considering section 8 covers for almost 5 million people (with hundred of thousand waiting to receive some help) it sort of make sense. There is a huge class disparity in America. It should not come as a surprise that the bottom 5% to 10% of the American society struggle to maintain themselves afloat.

All this is WAY too complicated and honest for black and white simplistic thinking.

Ah, that was glorious, had totally forgotten it and just had a good laugh about it again…

This is a piece of artwork (?) hanging in Ben Carson's home.

Rainbow Vomit

And he's so modest and unassuming that he had this large painting/photo? of him done and it hangs between his two big arched windows in his house.

Well duh. That's cause you're an asshole. This is not news to anyone here.

Whatever he says you know it will be in a soft soothing voice. That's something at least. I know that when I'm being fucked in the ass we might as well be pleasant about it.

Actually I'm not sure this is a bad pick. He does have personal experience and likely has some interesting ideas about that experience. And he is a good Christian (appreciates that he is in fact Jesus). He has the opportunity to be the Jimmy Carter of inner cities.

You guys need to lay off poor Ben and stop misquoting him. What he actually said was "The pyramids were brain silos".

In other news, Ben Carson has announced that he will solve America's housing shortage by pioneering a technique to separate duplexes joined at the electrical panel.

Wait, Fred! There's 10,000 Volts in that thing! Start about 3:45.
