Ben Carson, you've got to be kidding.......

I just moved my 86 year old mom into a HUD senior high rise. Her rent is approximately 20% of her income. Her medical expenses from my understanding reduce her income. So the rent covers everything but phone & cable. It is very manageable for her.

I'm afraid that Carson will attempt to raise the income requirements for HUD housing, make the payment of utilities the responsibility of the renter and take money away for the management and maintenance of these buildings.

So Carson along with every other Trump nominee scares the bejesus out of me.
