Mr Santilli Barking Up Wrong Tree Phoenix Has Provided Shelter for Homeless Veterans

Lord this pains me to take up for McCain, however Mr. Santilli is barking up the wrong tree.
McCain may be chairman of  Senate Armed Services Committee
 it is empowered with legislative oversight of the nation's military, including the Department of Defense, military research and developmentnuclear energy (as pertaining to national security), benefits for members of the military, the Selective Service System and other matters related to defense policy. The Armed Services Committee was created as a result of theLegislative Reorganization Act of 1946 following U.S. victory in the Second World War. It merged the responsibilities of the Committee on Naval Affairs (established in 1816) and the Committee on Military Affairs (also established in 1816). 
Not even John McCain can make sure housing is provided for veterans nation wide.
Responsible cities can take action to provide space for those veterans who wish to have a permanent residence
Mr. Santilli needs to keep up with the times Phoenix Arizona's Mayor Stanton took care of homeless veterans. 
Success in housing for homeless veterans in Phoenix touted
Nearly 200 chronically homeless veterans in Greater Phoenix have found permanent homes since 2011 through a program that local advocates hope will become a long-term system to steer returning service members away from life on the streets
How Phoenix Ended Chronic Homelessness Among Our Veterans
Honoring our Veterans
Stanton has always been committed to providing services, resources, and quality jobs for our community's veterans – and hard work paid off in 2013 when Phoenix became the first U.S. city to end chronic veteran homelessness.
Ending Veteran Homelessness
In December 2013, Phoenix became the first city in America to end chronic homelessness in our veteran community because Stanton recognized that we have a responsibility to take care of those who have served and sacrificed.  
Message From Veteran’s Convey Leader Peter Santilli To Sen John McCain: We The People demand that Senator John McCain get Veterans off the streets of Arizona by September 5th, 2015, or we will make his office their new home. (Editor’s Note: Last night a convoy that started in Cinncinati arrived in Phoenix, intent on getting Sen. John McCain’s attention on veterans affairs.)
Our Mission:  On September 5th (and until McCain responds appropriately) U.S. Military Veterans will descend upon Senator John McCain’s office at 2201 East Camelback Road Suite 115 Phoenix, AZ 85016 to demand that he be held accountable, arrested, tried and convicted for his shameful acts against the Veterans of the United States.
