Should the government get involved?
That's a tough question. I believe the government of the United States has the power to
change things, but I think they should work hard to make sure all citizens have better
health, education, and welfare (not checks but well-being type welfare). That doesn't
mean they need to focus on the middle and upper classes. They need to feed and
shelter the poor, but mainly get a focus on education. I know there are tons of
controversies involved, but NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND is not working. Food stamps
and shelters are not even federal programs. Healthcare is an extremely tough issue,
because without the incentive to get rich, why would people want to become doctors
with years of medical school and debt?
If we abandon foreign oil and perhaps focus on a little bit of keeping policy at home,
instead of international, the military reduction in spending could go a long way.
I think the U.S. has reached a point where the middle class was too expanded and
the fat cats like the direction things are going in. There will be a widening of the poor
because of the rising cost of heat and electricity and fuel and the things that fuel
delivers (everything). The creation of more poor will create a bigger low-cost labor
force which will cut shipping costs from foreign ports. The lousy education is
speeding it along.
