    $2 million a month for homeless to live in motels

    I wish I could live in $85 a night hotels on the tax payer's dime!
    Housing Massachusetts’ homeless is costing tax payers around $2 million per month. It costs an average of $85 per night to have families, including nearly 1000 children, stay in motels.
    At one time this quote actually meant something:
    I am for doing good to the poor, but...I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. I observed...that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer.
    -- Ben Franklin

    I have a question. What do you want to do with the homeless? I prefer answers to problems, not complaints.

    LOL. I have no problem with trying to place people in jobs even if it is bum fights. I do have a problem with children in the streets. I do not know how it is moral to allow kids to be homeless.
