Will We See Mass Homelessness if There is No Stimulus by EOY?

I think homelessness in America will get a lot worse over the winter if we have to wait until February for stimulus. Like 2-5 million people visibly homeless in major cities.

Congress has to pass a government spending bill by December 11, and unemployment numbers are climbing again, alongside COVID, so the government may throw another stimulus check our way and extend unemployment benefits in December. Highly doubtful, but possible.

What do we think, Datalounge?

Can’t they just put them in all those empty shopping malls? We’ll feed them with Cinnabons and Auntie Anne’s pretzels and lemonade.

OP, duh. But as Trump would say, “la la la la, I can’t heeeeeeeeeear you!!!!!!!” It’s easier that way.

Draft them military style to provide street cleaning and other menial jobs and provide cots and tents and basic services. Why give them luxury hotel rooms where they can panhandle during the day and commit other crimes and then get high at night? Dumbass DeBlasio policies allow this nonsense. People living in NYC with 3 roommates or more paying 40% taxes for city, state and federal should be outraged at this outrageous waste of money.

Don’t we already see mass homelessness as it is?

R5, I said 2-5 million in the largest cities. The number is nowhere near that (maybe 500,000 in Los Angeles, New York, and San Fran total)

I have a friend who is house shopping in Georgia. The market he's in is tight right now, but the real estate agent told him not to worry. In January, there will be thousands of foreclosed homes to choose from. My friend said he didn't want to buy a foreclosed house, and the agent agreed it was sad, but the banks were going to take those houses whether or not he bought one.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
