  • The government should help.

    The government should help because I have family members that live on the streets and they have mental disabilities. Some cant work for them selves and they need there medication to live. I truly believe that with some help they can get back up on there feet and start to work again.

  • Absolutely

    The government is for the people, not just those who have made the best decisions and made no mistakes. our country has enough resources that none of its citizens should be without a home. they may have made mistakes and may not be completely sane or have job skills, but they are human, and many simply need a helping hand or a second chance. It is the governments duty to help them.

  • We are all people and deserve

    To have a place where we can call home and not a matures under a high way. U have to think some homeless people served our country and are there because when they came back they had nothing. Some homeless people deserve homes and not where they are now. Once you fall it's hard to get back up.

  • The government should do more for the homeless.

    The true measure of a society is how it treats it's most vulnerable members. Therefore, the government should be doing much more than it is for the homeless population. It's absolutely shameful that in a country as wealthy as ours, we have citizens living on the streets. They need help and understanding, and they need it from their government.

  • They should help the Homeless!

    Homeless people should not have to live on the streets it cruel and inhumane, Homeless people are human citizens they are one of us. They should not be treated this way. This is why is chose yes instead of no other people should vote yes too. No one should be treated like this.

  • People are equal

    The government should help poor people in our country.
    Government should them because in our country, there are many people who doesn't have money or a job. All people deserve to live same like others do and So these people suicide because they cannot live like others do.
    The second reason is there are many kids who wants to go to school but they do not have money to afford the money to study. If kids cannot go to school they will know nothing for their entire lives and in the future, they will end up living in streets because they cannot find any jobs that is suitable for them.

  • Putting your shoes in other peoples.

    Every deserves to be treated fairly. Sometimes it's not their fault that they are homeless. Sometimes it's your jobs fault u got fired or had an emergency. It is not people's fualt all the time. There are people out there who are drug addicts or are drinkers. They deserve another chance. If they don't want one don't bother with them. Put a ourself in their shoes because what if it was you. If you have money now what would happen if that place or busness that you got all that money from goes bad. You may have money left if you saved up. Th point is your life can turn around in a second think about what you do and say before you say it out loud.

  • Aside from "man made, money" we are all people. "We, the people."

    I believe that the government should help because they have the power and funds to. If I had such funds to help and do things for others there are many things that I would do to assist others. Money we let shape us, yes we need it to live, unfortunately but that doesn't mean you should let it deter you from your true purpose of feelings in life. Just because one may be rich or poor, that makes you no different then me. That may give you a lower or higher "finical state" but not a different what human. Even if you do become rich, guess what.. You didnt become an alien and float away to mars. You would still live here on earth with the rest of us, use everything that the poor has made and still live, like everybody else. So what makes someone so special? The actual things they do. So yes, I do believe that it is right for the government to assist the less fortunate. It is up to that person that receives such funds to decide what they are going to do with it. I think that no one should be able to be broke no less then 10,000, it would just make for a better world, yes people could become lazy and just accept the free money but with 10,000 a year you still aren't rich and you cant just do whatever, you still have responsibilities, and like now. You always have the option of becoming wealthy its just about how you live your life.

  • If it were you.

    If you were the one who was sitting outside in the cold night laying on the hard cement floor wouldn't you want help. I do know the people who are currently living in boxes sure do want help. They might look bad and smell bad but who cares? They are living in the same world that you are living in they are humans just like us. Do not treat them differently just because they live in a box in the middle of the sidewalk and you live in a nice warn house. They are in pain right now some can't even afford for their families. Imagine if you couldn't afford for your family? What if you had to see your children live through the winter freezing and not being able to do anything? You would feel bad wouldn't you? And what would make you feel worse is that some people are not kind enough to hand you a water bottle or a little bit of money so you can start affording for food. But together we can help the homeless. We can end hunger and homelessness everywhere we go. All we have to do is give a little love. Give a little love to all races, all people even if you are black, white, purple, or blue WE ARE ALL EQUAL.

  • No the governement should not thelp the homeless.

    When one person thinks of homeless, the first image that usually comes to mind is that of the beggars walking around looking for charity. One must remember that these people generally refuse to hold down a job. Any actual disabled person, would qualify for disability, thereby gaining a steady income which could pay for rent. The truth is the homeless people like being homeless, they don't like working, and most all take that change you give to buy malt liquor. Even at my local homeless shelter where I have volunteered, they all sat outside the gates drinking, with no cares in the world. The government should not support these people's drinking habits with our tax money. Not to mention all homeless people already qualify for food stamps, emergency medicaid, and can get any life saving treatment at a hospital without ever paying the bill, they just need a 9.00 a month PO Box to get benefits. If they can't stop spending that money on beer even for just a few days, they don't deserve our support.

  • Less $ for the homeless = less homeless people

    There are so many so-called 'homeless' people to whom if support systems were taken; would suddenly become 'capable'. I have known of at least one such person. This individual laughed at the all of us who drag out of bed and head to work everyday. This person is in their early 30's and takes advantage of everything from welfare to his parents' basement. I lump social systems in with the homeless problem. If we chose not to spend our wealth to support those with their hands out - the vast majority of these leech-humans would suddenly and miraculously find themselves working out solutions for survival on their own. My 2 cents.

  • No, the government should not provide help to the homeless.

    The government should "promote the general welfare," not provide it. Government should be limited at every possible opportunity. A government which provides aid destroys the society it is built on by encouraging its citizens to simply think, "The government will take care of them, I don't need to worry about it."

  • Do not agree

    It is not the government responsibly to take care of people, they are not babies. The homeless have arms and legs that god gave them to work. They just don't want to overcome because they are just lazy. They once had a good life but the decided to take a different direction.

  • They suck up money

    Homeless people can work but they choose not to because if they could not work because of a disability they could get a disability check from the government. Most of them are drunks and drug addicts anyway so if you do give them money they will most likely go waste it on drugs or liquor.

  • People become dependent

    Too many programs make it easy for homeless and jobless to depend on the government. That way they don't have to go out on their own and find a job, so they will be relying on the government more. Help them find a job, Don't just feed them a fish.

  • We are spending too much money on them

    They spend money on the things they don't need, and when they do need something the government gives a lot of money, plus our national debt is already at 17 trillion dollars which is a lot of money,, for that to decrease is actually impossible. And for the government to spend that much money would not be a smart idea

  • Citizenship of course.

    Technically, homeless people are not citizens of the united states because they are not legally recognized by the State and Commonwealth. Ergo, they do not pay taxes and are not recorded on the census. The government can not provide for people out of its jurisdiction. That is why the government should not help the homeless

  • Wasting Our Money$

    I disagree that the government should be raising our taxes because the homeless people are using our money for drugs and liquor. Also because citizens that aren't homeless without too much money will go homeless due to tax raising. Homeless people should be responsible enough to be educated and get their own jobs.
