A Way To Tackle The Homeless Problem?

Nah!
Actions and voting have consequences.

Regan destroyed the future healthcare of many veterans returning from future “fantasy” wars like Iraq and Afghanistan. Despite the rhetoric during the campaign, they are not being helped, they can’t be housed, they are free to go, nobody to grab them, put them in jail while specialists revise their cases.

They are on their own walking on our streets like ghosts, or living like animals. We may laugh, berate, criticize them and call them “homeless” as if that is something out of a science fiction movie, or a word non existent in the richest country in the world.

Oh well, so much we can’t say when we never served in the army. Or commanding them when we were draft dodging cowards.

10-20 of them are committing suicide every day they say.

Seattle clears Northgate encampment after months of complaints | KOMO?

All 30 people were offered a spot in a shelter. 29 refused. You literally can’t help some people.

Yeah, I feel the kid gloves have to just come off. These people think they can just do what they want and that really shouldn’t be the case.

People can do whatever they like because the checks and balances were destroyed by Reagan. He threw the homeless/sick people out of the hospitals! Now, they don’t care, and won’t do anything about it.

Read the God damn history of his failures.

This is Seattle, not California. Try to keep up. Even in CA he didn’t throw anyone out of anywhere. There was great concern at the time that people were being involuntarily committed and abused in those institutions.

Oh…sorry, I didn’t know there weren’t any homeless people in California.
Nice spinning, but ain’t going to work.

With President Reagan and the Republicans taking over, the Mental Health Systems Act was discarded before the ink had dried and the CMHC funds were simply block granted to the states. The CMHC program had not only died but been buried as well. An autopsy could have listed the cause of death as naiveté complicated by grandiosity.
