Its good to see that Utah is adopting the basic tenants of the Common Ground movement.

The concept started in New York City, and uses tax payer money to provide housing and other services to the chronically homeless.

The total cost to the community is decreased because once people have housing it can be the springboard for ending addiction, finding a job, and dealing with medical problems.

It nice to see Utah has the common sense to adopt a socialist style program to redistribute tax payer wealth to our neediest citizens. It really seems to be working!

This is socialism! If the poor choose to be homeless then we should let them be!

The poor are only poor cuz they choose to be so!
