Someone Else’s Problem

News: Hawaii lawmakers have approved a measure that would offer free airfare to homeless people who wish to reunite with their families elsewhere in the U.S.

Comment: Rather than investigating the reasons for homelessness and the struggles associated with it, this program only ‘solves’ Hawaii’s homeless ‘problem.’

How many people will be shipped to parts unknown, arriving with no one to greet them and no hope for future success?

It’s time we start treating ‘programs’ like this for what they are: political pandering through and through. These lawmakers should be ashamed. When faced with an opportunity to offer real assistance to homeless people, they’ve chosen to take the cowardly way out.
