Obama Says He Will End Homelessness

We can end homelessness.  We have a social service infrastructure set up across the country to provide emergency services to people who have become homelessness, but if we directed resources to preventing them from becoming homeless in the first place, it would work.  Homelessness is not an inevitable side effect of a (pseudo-)capitalist economy.  The Obama administration has announced that it will end homelessness, and that it will do it in ten years.  Let’s hope he does a better job reaching his original goal than he did with that “universal health care” thing.
