Thanks to a bizarre scheme that purports to save lives and improve health, taxpayers in San Francisco are footing the bill for vodka, wine, and beer for homeless alcoholics. Right now, any satire or slapstick comedy pales in comparison to the absurdity of life under the Democratic administration.

According to The UK Daily Mail on May 10, the bizarre scheme in Democrat-run San Francisco seeks to “stop excessive drinking” withing the city’s disproportionately high number of homeless people. San Francisco distributes vodka shots, wine glasses, and beer bottles, so the homeless (to use a ridiculous liberal term) may spend $5 million a year on alcohol on government funds. The government there allegedly only aims to provide minor, temporary health benefits, not to assist the homeless in becoming clean.

According to the Daily Mail, nurses from the awakened city’s “controlled alcohol program” give alcohol to homeless addicts, supposedly helping to reduce their severe addiction by limiting the amount of alcohol they take in. The city says the program is successful, but we know that Democratic promises on costly, dumb government initiatives are considerably less valuable than a can of Mulvaney-endorsed Bud Light. Is it true that the program keeps homeless individuals out of the hospital or jail? Who can say for sure? Of course, responsible taxpayers are the ones who have to pay the price.

From the Daily Mail:

“After assessing patients, nurses typically feed them one or two drinks, usually three or four times per day. They give them either a shot of 1.7 ounces of liquor or vodka, a glass of wine, or 12 ounces of beer, which is around three-quarters of a pint. Individuals who consumed excessive amounts of alcohol were among the city’s biggest emergency service users prior to the program’s implementation.”

Since the program’s inception in 2020, its size has grown. Twenty beds are currently available on the grounds of an abandoned hotel in the Tenderloin District for people suffering from alcoholism, compared to the initial 10 beds.”

However, the initiative once again needs millions of dollars in government funds—$5 million a year. Though it may seem insignificant in comparison to some other government initiatives, it is completely absurd to think that the government should be providing the homeless with free alcohol at all by using public funds to pay for it.

Furthermore, as Salvation Army San Francisco advisory board chair Adam Nathan noted when comparing drug addiction to alcoholism, “Giving free drugs to drug users does not alleviate their issues.” It only extends them. Where is the healing in all of this?

Nevertheless, Democrats are not good at fixing issues. They start with problems and then exacerbate them with fictitious, multimillion-dollar government fixes. Rather than tackling the severe homelessness issue in San Francisco, which has been forcing out companies among other negative consequences, the government is only giving free alcohol shots to destitute alcoholics. That will not solve the problem of homeless addicts, and it would be a terrible waste of public funds. As usual, responsible people are the ones who suffer for the insane beliefs of Democrats.
