Great! Now, how do they shelve it permanently?

I don't understand why they'd do this. They money is already there, and refusing on the principle of the thing will potentially cost hundreds or thousands of lives here in LA alone. It's the political equivalent of a scorched earth policy. Are they hoping that the poor will all just die and then won't be a problem anymore?
