Should The Government Help Out The Homeless? And How?
Homeless people need just as much help as anyone else does. If you believe that the homeless should be helped, add a why and in which way (prevention, decreasing housing costs, temporary housing ect.) If you disagree, also add an why and what should the government do with the homeless.

Yes... Because i said so

 Also, the government benefits from this. when homeless people join the workforce, the government gets income tax, and when they get a house, the government gets property taxes

People at against helping homeless have no heart, we are all humans if they are homeless then we all should be homeless if you think that you should not help out then you are not a human, humans have suppose to look after one another homeless or no homeless, poor or rich but that proves that humans are beyond are not willing to help anyone but themselves and be selfish all the time.

People in the against you try living homeless you would not be saying that when other people are not helping you.

 that's ridiculous. If you didn't have a heart blood wouldn't pump around your body so if you didn't want to die you'd have to do cartwheels non stop, 24/7, and sleep on a bed that went right round, and you'd never get any rest at all. A person who hasn't got a heart is way worse off than a person without a home

The government should not help ANYONE in a private life, be they homeless or just unemployed. It is the homeless person's responsibility to A) not become homeless or B) get a job.

No we should only help those who help themselves.
 redmaster  10 May 2011 06:56
 But what if they cannot help themselves are you saying because they don't you will just walk about and not feel any pity for the person who is sleeping on a bench with papers covering him/her to keep him/her warm.

i think this is sick, humans should be looking after one another not being sad and saying no and using there appearance as a argument point to not help them.

No they should not, as the homeless should take the initiative and by a house for themselves.

 The problem with that is people often forget that homeless have no money. And the stereotype that homeless are either drunken bastards or addicted to drugs doesn't really help their case. You also have to remember that about 25% of the homeless population is comprised of youths.
