when we invest in people, we used to be a nation that did that, like investing in education instead of prisons produces more productive people for example, we need housing for mentally ill americans. a study showed that folks who live on the streets, the total cost is 1 million dollars more just for 23 people to live on the streets. emergency rooms are tremendously expensive too. you want to know about the character of our country? other countries imprison the media. we imprison our most vulnerable people. there's a lot of things we can do. my appeal is to measure ourselves by how we treat the most vulnerable among us, my friends.
