    This is a deliberate malcharaterization of the position presented. No one disagrees with the voluntary contribution to charity, and no one wants to stop it.
    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.

    Really some are so heartless and the things I speak of can become a reality if more people were not so selfish and greedy. It disgust me how greedy people are and care more about getting their next Starbucks rather than helping to feed a family in need a meal
    Give hand ups not hand outs. Oh and rather than blame us why don't you blame the highschool dropouts who decided to have 6 kids before they were 30. I feel sorry for the kids but the parents are the reason why they invented chemical sterilization. De-evolution.

    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.

    Government is not competent at "social engineering." We experienced this with the Great Society, where the hopes and dreams of liberal progress brought with it disastrous results, mixed results, and minor benefits-all at the dismay of social scientists who believed much was possible, if only they were given the keys to the kingdom (which they had been to a degree never-before-seen).

    Obama must not be well schooled in the history of similar government programs that totally failed.
