Don't be fooled this money aint going to the homeless. Well maybe 20-30% will the rest will disappear in bueracracy.
The "homeless" are subject to the same taxes as everyone else, with the possible exception of property taxes and many of us who are "homed" don't
pay property taxes, either.
Most of the people who live on the street are not homeless in the truest sense of the term. Many have just worn out their welcome at home.
Surely, there will be administrative costs, but the article does little to explain who will do the administrating.
As always, it is far better to donate money directly to your favorite organizations than it is to donate it one who will distribute it for you.
At least, that's my take on the subject.
