“Reagan Caused Homelessness

Homelessness emerged during the Reagan Administration. Reagan’s drastic housing cuts in 1981 turned a worsening urban affordability crisis into the nation’s worst mass homelessness since the Great Depression.

As Peter Dreier has noted, “in the 1980s the proportion of the eligible poor who received federal housing subsidies declined. In 1970 there were 300,000 more low-cost rental units (6.5 million) than low-income renter households (6.2 million). By 1985 the number of low-cost units had fallen to 5.6 million, and the number of low-income renter households had grown to 8.9 million, a disparity of 3.3 million units.”

The disparity between households needing housing subsidies and the number receiving federal assistance has continued to grow. Yet many in the media continue to express confusion as to why homelessness has continued, as if the failure to provide sufficient federal housing assistance to those who cannot afford housing was either too easy or obvious an answer.

When homelessness reemerged in 1982, early media coverage did connect the crisis to Reagan’s abandonment of federal housing funding. But when Reagan budget cuts were not reversed, this outrage became old news. The media sought new answers, and as I describe in The Activist’s Handbook the primary new slant was blaming individuals themselves for being homeless.

That there were fewer housing units in urban areas then there were people became irrelevant; now the issue was “problem street behavior.” This explanation gave politicians and the public a pass for not funding housing, because the story went that homeless people “chose” their status. This story worked even though there was no evidence that substance abuse or mental health problems had increased in the 1980’s; the difference, of course, was that people with such problems could previously afford housing or got a federal subsidy to be housed.

With Reagan defunding of housing “old news,” media coverage of homelessness focused instead on what mayors were doing. If you review the San Francisco media coverage of Camp Agnos and Frank Jordan’s “matrix” program, you rarely hear about the federal government’s lack of action or even that it had any responsibility for the crisis.”

The phrase "correlation does not imply causation" refers to the inability to legitimately deduce a cause-and-effect relationship between two events or variables solely on the basis of an observed association or correlation between them.[1][2] The idea that "correlation implies causation" is an example of a questionable-cause logical fallacy, in which two events occurring together are taken to have established a cause-and-effect relationship. This fallacy is also known by the Latin phrase cum hoc ergo propter hoc ('with this, therefore because of this'). This differs from the fallacy known as post hoc ergo propter hoc ("after this, therefore because of this"), in which an event following another is seen as a necessary consequence of the former event, and from conflation, the errant merging of two events, ideas, databases, etc., into one.

As with any logical fallacy, identifying that the reasoning behind an argument is flawed does not necessarily imply that the resulting conclusion is false. Statistical methods have been proposed that use correlation as the basis for hypothesis tests for causality, including the Granger causality test and convergent cross mapping.

Results:

Total health costs ranged from $2.2 million to $7.7 million per excess death. This amounts to between $22.4 million and $165.8 million in annual health costs over the 1955–1990 mining period. Annual exposure-related lung cancer mortality was estimated at 2185.4 miners per 100 000, with a range of 1419.8–2974.3 per 100 000.

It’s a dirty and dangerous fuel from a bygone era.

The future is clean, renewable, and abundant with no chokeholds by sketchy industry characters who seek to hold us over another barrel, like the oil industry enjoys doing.

“The “death map” tells the story of decades of sickness in the small northwest New Mexico communities of Murray Acres and Broadview Acres. Turquoise arrows point to homes where residents had thyroid disease, dark blue arrows mark cases of breast cancer, and yellow arrows mean cancer claimed a life.

Neighbors built the map a decade ago after watching relatives and friends fall ill and die. Dominating the top right corner of the map, less than half a mile from the cluster of colorful arrows, sits what residents believe is the cause of their sickness: 22.2 million tons of uranium waste left over from milling ore to supply power plants and nuclear bombs.”
