As we told you late last week, California Gov. Gavin Newsom presented an idea for what doctors should be able to do:
Doctors should be able to write prescriptions for housing the same way they do for insulin or antibiotics.

Ted Cruz did his best to encapsulate all the ridiculousness of that tweet in his response:
This is the Leftist mind: write a slip of paper & a house will magically appear. Never mind that the person doesn’t have a job, the contractor can’t get a CA permit to build the house, rent control has caused a housing shortage & homeless people are crapping on the doorstep. ? https://t.co/giz3z7vHFB

Maybe a doctor should write Newsom a prescription for some self-awareness.
More importantly, it does not address the root of much of the homeless problem: Mental illness and drug addiction. https://t.co/LMEMdMLiJX

That answer Gavin Newsom gave tells you how series he actually is about fixing the homeless problem in his state.
