    Quote: "The nation's homeless population increased this year for the first time since 2010... [HUD] released its annual Point in Time count Wednesday, a report that showed nearly 554,000 homeless people across the country during local tallies conducted in January. That figure is up nearly 1 percent from 2016."

    BTW, it's December, so "January" would be January 2017. [A year to release their report, it seems.]

    Hmm... So, the homeless population increased DURING 2016. DJT became President in late January 2017. The increase happened under BHO's Administration. Any increase in homeless population during 2017 won't be known until December 2018 when HUD releases its next annual report.

    Isn't it amazing how "trusted" news companies skew their wording to put those they don't like in a bad light.

    I doubt they should look toward Congress for any help, given this current Congress does not care for the poor anyway.

    Jason Chaffetz complained that Congress should get a $2,500 housing stipend in addition to an average salary of $174,000 per year.

    Congress should try living on minimum wage without benefits for a while. They might reconsider that $30 billion tax break for the Waltons.

    The most vulnerable are the first to suffer. They are the canary in the coal mine. Thanks GOP and Trump! Next to up, working poor . . . then middle class by 2020. Just watch.

    Affordable housing has gone the way of jobs in this country, thanks a lot D.C. and the oh so affable, filthy rich.


    People are losing their homes - sleeze bag - programs closed due to lack of funding etc.... Public housing should not be lifetime or generational. Section 8 also only for elderly or disabled otherwise mandatory work requirement and not for a lifetime - clinton had 5 yr limit on TANF bush cut the program welfare to work the minute in office. I was caseworker for Welfare to Work. Disability should not take 5 yrs to get especially when people have paid into it most of their lives - Illegals cannot get benefits only certified refugees.

    Wow... Didn't the Democrats know that when they brought in all those extra illegal aliens to vote in CA, that they would need a place to stay?
