95. I think most of us were thinking of Federal money,
not State money. And you may not understand how life works for a homeless person, or you wouldn't make some of the statements that you do, either. Being a former county worker myself (City and County of Denver)I know how precarious government jobs are. In Colorado, we had a similar situation as California does now. We had the TABOR amendment, which totally devastated a huge part of the State, County and Municipal government jobs. Which is why I am a FORMER county worker, our whole unit was laid off in September, 2005. I have a college degree, and yet I haven't found a "real" job since....... the point being that we are ALL pretty vulnerable right now, as much as we don't want to think about it.

Again, I think it was Federal, not individual State money that was in discussion.
