Heaping More Punishment On The Homeless OK, Says Governor.

The lack of affordable housing has created a public aid nightmare for one state, and their governor has come up with this novel idea to help end homelessness:

Make it harder for people to receive housing vouchers for hotel and motel housing. Direct them instead to homeless shelters and rental assistance programs and like magic, the problem disappears ! Absolutely brilliant idea, except homeless shelters are filled and rental assistance programs are either tapped out financially or there is a lengthy wait time.

So what becomes of these Americans ?

Small affordable housing is the answer to many problems facing our society, so why isn’t affordable housing being built ?

The banks and builders say affordable housing is not profitable.

Profits over people is what has created so much homelessness, and we must demand housing as a human necessity and affordable housing be built for the common good.
