    And please tell me what republican policy has been brought to the table to solve this?

    Lowering taxes and getting rid of regulations ????

    Taxes and regulations have gone UP in California.

    They've been hit especially hard by poverty.

    One third of the nations welfare cases, and 1/5 of the homeless.

    This is what unopposed liberalism gets people.

    Of course the percentage of homelessness among children is up in the U.S. compared to about eight years ago.

    It's because the percentage of homelessness among their parents is up.

    And why is it up?

    Because of the liberal and conservative strange-bedfellow alliance to push sub-prime security mortgages on those who couldn't really afford even those.

    And, they really started to push it around the turn of the century when off-shoring and out-sourcing American jobs were also being pushed.

    So sub-primers, as they were called, got their house .. and they began to furnish it .. .. and, one by one at first, these warehouse workers, manufacturing workers, transportation workers, carpenters, iron workers, plumbers, and the like, they began to lose their job to people in other countries overseas.

    And then the job-loss rate picked up, as companies had to compete, and wage-slaves in other countries were cheaper to hire than sub-primers in America ..

    .. And soon by the hundreds .. then the thousands .. .. sub-primers lost their jobs .. and couldn't find work any more .. and defaulted on their loans when the variable rates went up.

    Meanwhile, very unscrupulous Wall Street types saw the writing on the worthless securities wall, and they concocted one of the biggest frauds in U.S. financial history, creating the sub-prime securities fiasco that crashed us all into the Great Recession.

    When no one could then get their weekly business loan, they laid people off, and they closed their doors .. and unemployment shot up to 25%, the accurate rate.

    Millions of adults couldn't find work .. and they became homeless .. they and their children.

    Today, the accurate unemployment rate is down to around 12 percent perhaps -- it's hard to tell, since so many have fallen off the radar.

    But, the percentage of living-wage jobs compared to before the Great Recession is way down, many still off-shored and out-sourced to wage slaves in other countries, not to mention in-sourced wage-slave illegals.

    So, yes, there are many more homeless Americans in the U.S. then their were .. many more .. and, of course, that includes their children.

    What's the solution?

    I'm not sure.

    But, one thing's certain: it won't involve any concocted by the wings of the political spectrum -- they're the ones who got us into this increased homeless mess in the first place.
    You don't trust Trump? Well, there's only one way to leverage him to do what's economically right for us all: Powerful American Political Alliance. Got courage?! .. and a mere $5.00?

    Liberals invented homelessness, apparently.

    It took one post before someone decided to (in as hackish a fashion as possible) make it a partisan issue. One.

    That's very likely true.

    Depends on what one considers abuse as to how high that percentage would be. LGBT kids also end up on the streets and all of course there are the substance abusers that overlap into other categories. Certainly complex of an issue.

    there was a post of something like 269 things the president has done since in office to make things better.

    remember according to many the President plans, are making the economy stronger, claiming its a slow process but its on the up swing.

    Was one of those 269 things "eliminated homelessness"?
