Cities, States Turn to Emergency Declarations to Tackle Homeless Crisis
Hawaii Los Angeles, CA and Portland, Oregon,

Trump’s budget cuts could cause a huge spike in homelessness – leaving people on streets in numbers not seen since the Reagan era. 13% HUD reduction of $6.2 billion & completely wipe out the US Interagency Council on Homelessness (USICH).
Back to the homeless again huh ? In my experiences of driving around America this entire summer all I see are the usual sign holding , probable drug or alcohol addicts. I realize there are legitimate cases of it but why are there ALWAYS drug , violence and alcohol arrests in the "homeless " camps , at least in the ones I've seen ?
WE have an incredible safety blanket array of available services in America .
Someone will have to prove to most of us that all "homeless" are actually that desperate.
Trump is the CEO-in-Chief, a business man who dislikes wasteful spending. Ben Carson has done an audit on HUD and found $520 BILLION of spending that is unaccounted for. Fixing the waste by fixing the budget is not going to increase homelessness, but it will make HUD accountable, save the American taxpayers money, at a lose to corrupt individuals who don't work at HUD anymore.
Homelessness is still a big problem in some states and has been for a very long time. What are those states doing to solve homelessness?
Cuts are needed to programs in order to fund the orange man-baby's golf trips and securing his white trash family.
OR ......Cuts are needed to eliminate massive wastes in the entitlement safety blanket systems .ie. Work for Welfare . No more SSI disability for back aches and morning sickness , Acorn spending for multiple abortions . Maybe to help internet trolls like yourself to find new meaning in their lives .
Wow. Such jumping like a flea on shit. So in life.. Nothing happens eh ? No flood fires loss of job that went overseas no family problems.. It's aaaaaaaallll the victim's fault eh ?. You must live a very boring life. You should be thankful.
If you were truly as informed as most liberals , you would at least recognize a lot of corruption in these " systems" , Actual ' homeless" caused by such disasters ; is minimal . You really need to take a walk under the bridge sometime and see the used needles , Bud Light cans , and mental illness'.
Begin there and call me back.
Begin there and call me back
Or is it more like "Been there and came back"
70% of people are temporary homeless and get a place within 9-14 months
Your example is the "HARD core" homeless living on the street for years They are NOT the majority.
For you to take a minority of disabled people who are without a social support system and characterize them as thieves and scammers is a most dishonorable thing for you to do. It is callous and devoid of any human compassion.
Perhaps you lived a very hard life there H. IDK, But you seem to be extremely harsh and bitter. I hope you can deal with your emotional problems more effectively in the future without crapping all over people indiscriminately on a forum like this.
Good luck to you.
Jees , chill it down dude . you just answered to my points , "70% ............blah blah ..." I didn't say some people don't need help , you need to walk beneath the bridge dude and yes , entitlement and safety systems are rife with corruption ......I'm not the one with the emotional problem as you're doing the name calling .
