The Explainer

This from the National Alliance to End Homelessness website. It's from their fact sheet series The Explainer. I can't find where I got this again, but you can get it here.

Isn't it great how Bush is the Decider and NAEH is The Explainer?

The factsheet shows how if you look hard enough, the federal government is spending more on homelessness than it first seems, but they're still not doing jack on housing, even though that's all they ever talk about.

But then The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities offers this less than promising summary of the President's budget, and it's long-term impact on domestic discretionary spending. Note that the largest cuts are in community development and job training.

It looks like The Explainers still have some explaining to do.
