If 50 major cities like Nashville need $72 million dollars each [to fight homelessness], that is $3.6 trillion plus more over time to maintain the new bureaucracy, housing, food and medicine.
That's not likely to happen.
The unspoken reason why Nashville — or other cities — do not proceed in this direction is the fear of "build it and they will come" syndrome. If Nashville spends that much money for facilities, housing, food, medical, etc., the homeless will flood into Nashville from elsewhere for your handouts and your expenses will grow exponentially.
Your leadership knows this but will not say it for fear of sounding heartless. Money will not solve this homeless problem.
