Politicians have two answers for every problem. Pass a bill and throw millions of dollars at it. The bills don't work and the money ends up in the pockets of their cronies. There is a reason why Harry Reid is rich and his children are lobbyist in Washington. DC.
So called "community organizers" flock to the inner cities and solicit money from the government (in the name of the children and the poor). They get the unions to come in and build the sub-quality housing projects and they and their cronies pocket the difference. That how it works!
