California's homeless problem is almost over thanks to creative thinking by Governor Gavin Newsom.

Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom gave his State of the State address on Wednesday to a joint session of the California Legislature and told the predominantly controlled by Democrats body that of a new proposal that would allow doctors to write out prescriptions for housing as part of a five-point plan to combat California's homelessness situation.

Newsom proposed a "once-in-a-generation" Medi-Cal reform, which includes a $695 million budget request, according to Newsom's speech and the Sacramento Bee.

"Health care and housing can no longer be divorced. After all, what's more fundamental to a person's well-being than a roof over their head?" Newsom said during his speech. "Doctors should be able to write prescriptions for housing the same way they do for insulin or antibiotics."

I medically require a beachfront house in Malibu. Cleaning and maintenance work are harmful to my mental health, so I also need some servants.
