    I have 3 kids right now living in my Shed, even as I write this.

    They cannot afford an apartment and this guy wants to tear down existing homes?

    Lord knows what happens to these kids if they cannot find the cash to keep that shed heated this winter. I can give them the space, but I afford to heat it.

    Here's a thought, fuck the market...let's help some PEOPLE for a change.

    Does anyone have any reliable numbers on how many Americans are ALREADY couch-surfing?

    I'm guessing they're really the unacounted homeless, and my guess is there must be millions of them.

    Young kids and the newly poor, they're people who just don't make enough to keep a roof over their heads, but they are still part of some community of friends and families who are carrying them.

    It's preposerterous that we can find the resources to help out these people, but our government cannot.

    Well...that's one word I can think of to describe this sorry state of affairs.

    I have others, but I'll spare you readers.

    Sadly, that's not the way the government thinks ... our politicians want money and power, it's why they got into the business in the first place. ;)

    He doesn't actually want to tear down any homes. He points out the bad economics of such a program in the article.
