We wouldn't HAVE so many homeless people if Reagan hadn't closed down most of the mental hospitals. Many homeless people are very mentally ill, to the point where they CAN'T hold down a job of any sort. The compassionate thing to do is to get them into a residential treatment program and see what combination of drugs and/or therapy can make them productive again. But Reagan was a sh**waffle who really liked seeing "lesser" people die.

Very much agree. It's crazy how a decision like that still has effects decades later.......
