42. This idea has a LOT of problems.
Too many to list really, but I like the intent behind the idea. Surely the govt would have to reward the banks/lenders somehow, and then create (I hate this word) "an official class" for the homeless, I guess.

To me it seems far easier to not have endless wars that will cost a trillion dollars, and better use that money (in this case) for our homeless population. How hard could it be to build large structures in each city or borough that could house a few thousand folks? Hell, we seem to be able to throw up prisons pretty well. Make it like a barracks. Places to sleep, shower, get changes of clothes, a job placement assistance office with internet access and the guests can come and go as they please. Is it perfect? No, of course not, and seeing as how I'm an idiot, surely somebody could improve vastly on the idea.

Seriously, how hard can it be?
