Why should “our” citizens get welfare handouts?

All taxation is theft.

Why not just eliminate housing subsidies and completely eliminate all taxpayer-funded handouts?

Why should my income be stolen from me to pay for the housing of an elderly citizen?

It's not my responsibility to support other people.

Yes, it will not only affect the homeless people, but also those who are renting. The rent will be affected. Even home prices can be affected indirectly. NYC housing crisis has already been bad enough.

Look in the mirror and Karl Marx looks right back at you.
Anarchists sound more like Karl Marx than MAGAs.

And just like Ayn Rand, I bet you and your elderly folks will accept social security and Medicare.

Eliminating all income theft, all welfare, and removing all barriers to the free market is sooooo Marxist.

Need a little cream for that butthurt, snowflake?

And just like all leftists, you use Ayn Rand as a crutch, even though she hated libertarians.

The solution to the homeless situation is simple & easy.

The problem is it has become a big business with lots of cash flow.

You just substitute a few words like anarchy for communism and it's the same utopia Marx's promised. And would result in the same thing.
