95. I have read the Daily Howler too much to trust journalists
they often repeat what they read whether it comes from the American Enterprise Institute, Cato, or the Heritage Foundation.

Right now, I am not seeing how "budget authority" which is "an amount the government is authorized to spend" (meaning they can spend that in theory). Since it is not the same as the amount the government actually does spend, which are the numbers I looked up. Theoretical spending does not provide housing, so cutting it does not explain homelessness. It does make for a nice gee-whiz story though.
