VA head: It'll take longer to end veteran homelessness
#1
The new Veterans Affairs chief shares the goal set by former President Barack Obama's administration of ending homelessness among veterans, but he says it will take longer than his predecessor predicted.

Reducing the number of homeless veterans nationwide from roughly 40,000 to 10,000 or 15,000 is an "achievable goal" for President Donald Trump's administration, VA Secretary David Shulkin told The Associated Press during a visit to Rhode Island last week.

"This is a continuous problem of people finding themselves in economically difficult situations and then being out on the street or going from shelter to shelter," Shulkin said.

You can either have tax cuts for the rich or end veteran homelessness, but not both.

The long term solution to the number of homeless veterans is to stop creating so many PTSD scarred veterans.  I feel that all our endless wars in the Middle East and Afghanistan have not profited us in any way, but have created huge problems for the USA.
I dream of an America where a chicken can cross the road without having it's motives questioned.
