Well, Maybe not everyone.
Back during the Regain Presidency, many institutionalized people were turned out onto Americas streets. Social Welfare programs were cut to the bone forcing those with marginal incomes into homelesness as well. With no or seriously reduced resources some gravitated to homeless camps. Others wandered aimlessly as the so called "street people.
But that wasn't the only attack he made on the humble. Many living in poverty were driven into homelesness by the reductions the Reagan administration made to social services. The services keeping those in poverty afloat. Without these support programs the poor had no choice but to sink into the ranks of the homeless.
In the homeless camps, like the one shown on the upper left, you might see a variety of shelters from refrigerator boxes to beat up tarps to worn out tents, most likely scavenged from curbside trash. Nothing is permanent.
The street people carried what little worldly goods they had in plastic bags, the luckier ones perhaps a beat up back pack. Still luckier were those who managed to latch onto a bent and beat up shopping cart with a cracked wheel that thumped along to the rhythm of their steps.
Approximately 0.02% of the U.S. population is homeless. That's around half a million people.
The Working Class is the backbone of the U.S. Economy. It includes those who have retired from the workforce to enjoy their "Golden Years."
These folks live in fine homes, often have his and her automobiles parked in their two-car garage, have a well stocked freezer, an education fund for their children and a cache of dollars for their retirement (if they're not already enjoying one).
These are the folks who define our Society. As a group, they provide everything we need to feed, shelter and keep ourselves safe; the butchers, the backers and, yea, the candle-stick makers.
