Remember when liberals tried to make the strange argument that Ben Carson wasn’t qualified to run HUD?
Apparently, one of the country’s most accomplished brain surgeons isn’t cut out to run a government agency.
It won’t surprise you to learn that Dr. Carson has been killing it so far.
A few months back, he helped uncover $500 billion worth of clerical errors in the HUD budget. The left has tried to dispute that claim but the mere fact that the errors were brought to light is a win in my book.
This week, some more good Ben Carson news broke. Looks like he is going to end Obama’s out of control Section 8 grant scheme.
From Weasel Zippers via Washington Examiner:
The Department of Housing and Urban Development is poised to reverse the Obama administration’s policy and return to a competitive bidding process to award Section 8 housing, according to a well-placed source in the department.
The move would overturn the Obama-era methodology of using a grant-style process that was rebuked by administrators and ultimately the U.S. Supreme Court.
The HUD official said many of the steps necessary to change back to the competitive procurement method are being taken now, but didn’t want to comment on when the announcement from the department might happen for fear of tainting the bidding process.
Gotta love that!
The grant-style process has been a total disaster no matter how you slice it.
Nice to see Dr. Carson bringing some positive changes to the bloated bureaucracy.
Another example of a huge victory for conservatives that we will never hear about from the mainstream media.
