The issue under consideration here is the government forcing people to provide other people the means necessary to exercise their rights. This is am entirely different matter, and is nothing but involutary servitude.
That you have a right in no way means you are entitled to the means to exercise it.
To the OP, yes it will be on YOUR dime! (and mine and everyone else who pays taxes...tough titty)
This isn't a commitment to just homelessness, it is child and family homelessness and our Vets. Children can not protect themselves from this type of situation.
American children should not be sleeping in the streets and clearly private agencies are not enough. And many times those private agencies, get some sort of federal funding.
And our US Vets, they actually could be helped through mental health services. We're not taking care of them the way they need to be taken care of. Our military is constantly expanding. We have over 700 military bases all over the world. Not to mention the billions we give away in aid to people who would really rather see us dead than look at us. But we can't even take care of our vets when they come home?? Maybe its time to cut back on some of our conquests and take care of our people who need it.
But this is not just a mental issue or substance abuse issue either, family homelessness jumped 7% in 2008-2009. And overall it went up 30% from 2007-2009. (from the article)
We really should get rid of all the hippies you know.
Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

"No religion is true, but some religion, any religion, is politically necessary. Law and morality are insufficient for the large majority of men. Obedience to the law and to the morals are insufficient for making men happy. […]Law and morality are therefore in need of being supplemented by divine rewards and punishments."
Obama must not be well schooled in the history of similar government programs that totally failed.
