Houses for Homeless

Someone in the Bush administration (who no one knows about) seems to be doing some good: homeless get housed.
"Many of the early starters are reporting turnarounds. In Philadelphia, street dwellers have declined 60 percent over five years. In San Francisco, the number of the chronic homeless is down 28 percent in two years, in Dallas 26 percent and in Raleigh-Durham, N.C., 15 percent."
On the other hand:
""Cost-benefit analysis may be the new expression of compassion in our communities," he said at the Denver meeting."
Can these idiots do nothing because getting people off the street is just a good idea? Does it really have to be cheaper?
