    On a single night in January 2014, 578,424 people were experiencing homelessness — meaning they were sleeping outside or in an emergency shelter or transitional housing program.

    President Obama and Michele really solved the homeless and medical care for all situation. They really get it. They care about us! Michele and Barak really get being down to earth and cool.
