Americans deserve a social safety net that temporarily provides them with assistance when they fall on hard times. Yet, when you remove accountability measures, like asset tests, then we shouldn’t be shocked that a government audit finds tens of thousands of ineligible people living in public housing (via the Hill):

The review found that HUD will pay $104.4 million over the next year for public housing units occupied by over-income families that otherwise could have been used to house low-income families, leaving many who need help stuck on waiting lists.
