Which Tax Write-Off Could Pay For Ending Homelessness In America Three Times Over?

According to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, it would cost us $20 billion to end homelessness in America (see bottom left vertical bar). Granted, we can all agree that $20 billion is a lot of scratch. But, if Americans are going to spend the same amount on holiday decorations, and THREE TIMES that amount on tax write-offs for corporate meals and entertainment, well, maybe the issue isn’t the money it’ll take to solve homelessness, but our collective will to tackle it.
