    No, it wasn't. But I think he was going to get around to addressing the homeless problem right after he stopped the oceans from rising.

    I have a home. So I suspect do most of the posters on this board. Trickle down economics result in being homeless. The accumulation of wealth by "the rich" hasn't prevented me from owning a home, and everyone I know also has a place to live in spite of the wealth of people like George Soros and the Koch Brothers and Beyoncé and all the other super rich people.

    What do you suggest be done?

    since it has been put forward so many times the economy is recovering, and things are on the up swing because of the administrations polices.

    then it stands to reason homelessness should be shrinking and things should be looking brighter.

    With a country so rich in natural resources its a damn shame we cannot take care of those who are the least among us. "The measure of a civilization is how it treats its weakest members."

    What? If the Obama recovery is so great, why so many homeless?

    And BTW, many of us do help the homeless. And yes, it sucks so many are homeless.

    The economy IS recovering (albeit slower than it should be); however, homelessness and the overall health of the economy are rarely interrelated.

    The largest overall increase in homelessness in the U.S. was during the 1980s, when the economy was healthy. Homelessness has numerous other causes, including substance abuse, children running away from abusive situations, and large influxes of combat veterans.

    Lol. I am sure that is his answer, but I always love to hear what people who hate 'trickle down' would offer in its place.

    but i am addressing the OP, which is about the "homeless children", since 6 million more people are receiving benefits from government you would think the problem would be less.

    You would think, if you didn't understand the varying root causes of homelessness.
