I am not advocating that we “do nothing”. That is a mischaracterization of what I believe and wrote.
My plan is to “do nothing” at the Federal level, where a great deal of money is wasted looking for a “one size fits all” solution. Rather, the problems should be handled on a local level. For some counties, that can look like large scale housing projects, or free clinics that offer medical care. For other counties, it might be helping ONE homeless man.
