Video of the Day: CA Dem Gov. Newsom says doctors should be able to write prescriptions for housing
Talk about insanity. On Friday, California Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom argued on Twitter that doctors should be able to give prescriptions for housing.
“Doctors should be able to write prescriptions for housing the same way they do for insulin or antibiotics,” he said. “We need to start targeting social determinants of health. We need to start treating brain health like we do physical health. What’s more fundamental to a person’s well being than a roof over their head?”
He made the same argument during his state of the state address earlier this week.

According to the Washington Examiner:
Newsom’s tweets reiterated a point he made during his State of the State address on Wednesday. He explained that California Advancing and Innovating Medi-Cal, an agency working to revamp the state’s healthcare program Medi-Cal, asked the state’s legislature for $695 million to invest in a holistic healthcare program that includes housing for mentally ill patients.
“The deeper truth is that our healthcare system has been designed to treat some of our parts, not the sumof our parts. That must change,” Newsom said. “This landmark proposal calls for leveraging Medi-Cal as a tool to help California’s most vulnerable residents: the homeless, our children, and people cycling in and out of the criminal justice system.”
He continued, “This is about integrating care. Targeting social determinants of health and expanding our Whole Person Care pilots statewide.”
Newsom listed homelessness as his No. 1 priority during the state of the state address. The homelessness crisis has been weighing down the state’s hospital system.
This is a clown post, yes?
