What about our own?

While I agree that the earthquake in Haiti is a tragic happenstance, I am amazed by how much money the United States committed to help the Haitians.
I understand that they need support after what has happened, but if our government has that much money set aside to assist those in a bad way, how it is possible the United States has homeless people?

The United States government needs to invest in its own, for a change. There are so many people who are homeless, WHICH INCLUDES VETERANS, that it hardly seems rational that our government would commit so much money to help another country's people and not its own. I, for one, am tired of the political agenda. U.S. politician's are more worried about what the world would say if they didn't help the Haitians than they are about what their own people would say.

For the people by the people?
