You seem to think homeless get so much. They hardly get shit and taxpayers are hardly paying for shit! They get to stay in a crowded shelter and get almost expired food and clothing thats thrown away or no longer wanted. Where do you get this hyped idea that they are costing taxpayers so much? And another thing, this false angle of a mantra that people who better function and have jobs and housing are doing so 'just' to be a contributing member of society is bullshit. They are doing so because they have self-esteem, relatively less damaged and do so for their own well-being and maintain their comfort or standard of living. Not to be some saint for society. Homeless people have little or no self-esteem besides their problems.
