Really..really Michelle first off get your numbers straight according to other sources it is 3 times that many..source.www.nationalhomeless.org...

Hers is an answer stop spending money on illegals and support the homeless sick and poor of America. I bet the numbers of vets are even higher because a lot of them know how to not be found and counted. It makes me so mad every article i read is about all the shelters and services for ILLEGAL trespassers to this country buildings being renovated ect .Here is one..
houston.cbslocal.com...

Because hair care is so important 4 the illegals smh....
Oh by the way you were not elected or any presidents wife was they need to stay out of the lime light and decisions if you ask me..

She has a point, numbers or not.

Perhaps you should start asking yourself why non citizens have more rights than you do.

My reply was sarcasm.

I'd rather see our own people get help before a bunch of illegals.

Can't have that though, can we? Gotta focus on them illegal "children"... Piss on our own, save the illegals!

Especially considering her husband's administration is complicit in dropping the ball for VA hospitals. Maybe she should woop her husband's ass into gear to overhaul the VA system instead of talking to us about it. She's the one with the President's ear, we (the people) certainly don't have it.

I personally think this high vet homeless number is a bunch of nonsense. Its part of the larger psyop to spread this info around.

This thread is living proof that no matter what the Obama's say, some jerks have to put a negative spin on it. Good lord folks, do you have no class?

We are horrified.

So why are illegals getting first rate accommodations at high expense to the taxpayers while our vets get fancy speeches to highlight a problem nothing has or will reasonably be done to fix?

Of all the people to raise this point and of all the times to do it, being tone deaf must be a point of pride there.

She is absolutely right about the vets, but what about the rest of the homeless? Feels like playing for votes to me.

Obama and his administration are incapable of getting one marine out of a Mexican prison. They are incapable of even acknowledging the situation.

That leads me to believe they are absolutely incapable of doing anything about veterans who need help, regardless of the numbers. Let alone actually caring about any of them. This is nothing but a PR stunt.

What makes her so smart?

She is a disgrace to the American people she is only proud of being an American when it benifits her personally.

Maybe with an executive order? It's funny how people want Obama to take large, sweeping actions on his own when it's something they agree with, but if he writes an EO for something they don't like, they are ready to scream "impeachment"!

Michelle's right. The fact that there are so many homeless vets HORRIFIES me.

a reply to: vonclod



Mrs. Obama announced at the annual National Conference on Ending Homelessness that, within the last few weeks, nearly 100 local leaders had pledged to end homelessness by the end of 2015. More than 182 communities around the country have joined the Mayors Challenge to End Veterans Homelessness, including major metropolitan area Los Angeles, Dallas and Miami.

“If your mayor isn’t signed up yet for the mayor’s challenge then light up their phone until they get on board,” she said. “And if you have any questions on whether or not we can get this done I want you to look at the success stories of many of the organizations of communities represented in this room today.”
