46. Do you think that that would cost anywhere in the same ballpark
as the bank bailout?

Most folks in this situation do not require stainless steel appliances or granite countertops...

Do you see my point? That the financial situation was considered in imminent danger, and was acted upon with the utmost urgency, and while most of us found the bailout distasteful at the time, we were told that it was necessary to keep the economy from completely collapsing.

Now, why can't we apply the same urgency and equal amounts of money to the emergency of the homeless, whose numbers must be growing on a daily basis. Seems to me when the government sees an absolute necessity (ie, financial bailout, wars), the money is there, no questions asked.
