The government should pay, NOT THE TAXPAYERS, they spend lots of money helping other countries, now it's time to help the U.S. citizens. And not use our taxes or charge us for it.

Government has no money, ever, it is always tax payers money, unless they print money which creates inflation which always hurts the poorest people. Free stuff for the people sounds nice, but socialism has not worked anywhere in 100 years. It creates more takers than contributors.

Possible solutions include the Gov't pays, decrease real property values, reform HR, wages, redo Rental Agreements or We CAN... The definition of a truly Great Generation is the ability and willingness to change established rules and regulations in consideration of people over profit.

If some people don't get help, they will just end up homeless, and it will cost taxpayers one way or the other to fix the problems.

It is our responsibility to provide housing for all not just some.

We don't live in a socialist country. If people start relying on hand outs (unless they have a reason to like being disabled or being elderly) they will never get anyplace.

No. I am sorry but Socialism has never worked. If someone is unable to live in a certain area they need to move. Taxpayers should not have to subsidize someone's rent so they can enjoy a certain lifestyle in an unaffordable area.

Anybody that says "taxpayers pays" probably doesn't earn enough to pay much in the way of taxes.

I had a stock option wire hub cap taken off my '67 Olds Cutlass convertible. It was irreplaceable.

I had an Automotive paint store for over 20 years. I had to close it when my wife's health took a rapid downhill turn. Now I'm taking care of her 24/7 with help from our 18 year old daughter. I had "Partners in I don't care" come over one time, never again do I want anyone else to care for her.

I had a business in Central Oregon for over 25 years. I would never open another business in the state of Oregon ever again.
