I was more specifically thinking about exposure. Homeless people freeze to death every year in Portland. Then there is just the general ill health caused by poor diet, exposure, yes drugs, and lack of medical care.

There are plenty of people that are homeless because they can't afford housing. That is helped by money. We also were specifically talking about seniors, Social Security, at what happens to them if Social Security is replaced by private retirement funds. There are lots of seniors that couldn't make rent without a Social Security check.
