Or perhaps he's concerned that Rump does what appears to be minimum letter of the law to qualify to bring in foreign works? The law say he needs to advertise for a min of 2 weeks so he takes out 2 adds 1 day a week about 3 lines long saying they should apply by fax, that's right by fax, then on day 14 files for foreign workers claiming he can't find US workers. Pretty bad behavior really........

Do not expect Hannity or lameball to explain that to any of their minions.. That will happen if one only gets their information from one or two sources. But it doesn't explain the reply unless you did not read the article or you think it is fake news or dissonance is involved and you can not accept your dear leader could be such a hypocritical a hole.

HUD Secretary Ben Carson Poised to End Obama-Era Section 8 Housing Grants…
Posted on August 7, 2017 by sundance

From THIS article on TCTH.com
Following his reelection victory in 2012 President Obama removed the bidding process from section 8 housing; instead Obama’s HUD initiated grants to their hand-selected organizations. After years of lost lawsuits the HUD bidding process is set to return.
HUD poised to end Obama's illegal Section 8 housing grant scheme
by Todd Shepherd | Aug 7, 2017, 12:01 AM

http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/hud-p ... le/2630660
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.

Supporters of the competitive bidding procurement process say the net result will increase efficiency in the program and save taxpayer money. And Republican lawmakers that have been critical of HUD's actions in the past are applauding the change in course as well.

"When dealing with performance-based Section 8 contract administrators, it's clear that full and open competition is the way to get the best value for the taxpayer," said Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart, R-Fla. "As Chairman of the Housing Appropriations Subcommittee, I have repeatedly insisted both publicly and privately that HUD follow Congressional intent, the GAO, and the Supreme Court."

Diaz-Balart is one of a small handful of elected officials who put pressure on HUD and then-Secretary Julián Castro during the years in which HUD ignored findings that their grant process was illegal.

Section 8 housing is a federal program that pays rental assistance to landlords to help low-income people acquire affordable housing.

Because HUD had problems administering the program, in 1995 it started to contract out the management of Section 8 housing units through a competitive bidding process. However, in March of 2012, HUD suddenly shifted away from the competitive bidding process, and began using funding mechanisms which were more like grants.

Contractors who had previously gained HUD's business under the bidding process appealed to the Government Accountability Office in 2012, just months after HUD changed course. And by August of that year, the GAO ruled that HUD's actions were "unreasonable and in disregard of applicable statutory guidance."

Undeterred, HUD pressed forward with their choice, which then made them the target of a lawsuit. From that point, HUD lost an embarrassing string of rulings which culminated in the U.S. Supreme Court denying to hear an appeal from the agency in April of 2015.

Despite all those rulings, HUD didn't budge. But the Trump administration is now set to return to the previous methods.

Eric Strong is the CEO of Navigate Affordable Housing Partners, a company that has won HUD Section 8 contracts in the past under the competitive system. He's also publicly lobbied HUD to change back to the performance based contracting method.

"All we've ever wanted was fair and open competition because we know it results in the best financial situation for the taxpayer and also will result in better housing for the residents who live in those [Section 8] units," Strong told the Washington Examiner.

That was likely just more of the ohdumm/dems kicking back no-bid contracts to their union buddies. I'm glad President Trump flushed it down the drain.

It was more like a block grant to let cities and states decide the best way to add low cost housing, wether it is goverment construction (which should bid) or grants to private devrlopers who includ liw cost units is their plans or rent subsidies or whatever.

I haven't followed it close enough to know if it worked or didn't....but l think the thought was it's probably a bad idea for the goverment to be in the real estate business.

Were you talking to me or Firedome? I was referring to Firedome not being able to comprehend that that vast majority of Americans don't want a job that they know is only going to last a couple of months so these resorts bring in temps from elsewhere.

How come you lefty socialists can't understand that your party and your bitch lost the election and that the public wants a real change of direction. Why can't you cry babies just shut the f**k up and wait for the next election?
Or, are you afraid you will you lose by even more than you did? Probably so.

Trump is doing what he was elected to do.
Congress is committing suicide.
