The Real Cause of Homelessness

Most people imagine the force holding homelessness and poverty in place is the reluctance of the rich to part with the money to solve the problems. Not so. Legislators are well aware of study after study explaining why it would cost roughly half as much to end these problems as to carry on doing what we are doing now. The wealthy want to punish the poor and homeless whom they see as wicked and lazy. They are willing to spend considerable amounts of extra money to satisfy their spite.
