Our congresspeople, especially Republicans and blue dogs, don’t want to hear about this problem — because their economic policy (drastically cutting all social programs) will only make the problem worse. The problem is the growing number of homeless children in the United States. It’s a problem that must be addressed, since homelessness can easily cause physical, emotional, and psychological problems for those children. But it’s a problem that can’t be solved without spending some money — money currently earmarked for tax cuts for the rich and more military spending.
