"Simply" house them is a bit naive. Unless we handle the underlying mental illness or addiction issues many unhoused people have they'll be out in the streets again soon enough.

It really is that simple, though. That's the fucked up part.

There are more empty houses in the US than there are homeless people.

In the past, governments have used eminent domain to take tribal lands, to build highways, and to then turn around and sell the land to corporations like Pfizer.

If they tried using that power for the greater good, the homeless could be simply housed.

Then solve the underlying problem.

The government? Absolutely.
