"MANY PEOPLE are homeless simply because they lack money for rent. For years the federal government has helped by giving direct subsidies to low-income people. Now President Bush is calling for limits." The Globe writes that critics contend that the Bush Administration's "fiscally responsible" budget cuts and new rules could mean the loss of thousands of vouchers. In particular, "the threat of cuts is...bad news in homeless shelters." The Globe writes: "Some might say that housing is not an entitlement. But homelessness is a national embarrassment--one that the country can afford to eliminate."
