Spending extra revenue from states that have legalized gambling to fund enough addiction clinics and programs to meet each state’s need is the first step toward decreasing addiction rates. The second step is voting to pass more ordinance and restriction laws so the gambling industry will not expand out of control and children will not have easy access to gambling machines. I think if “we” as a community work together toward getting our state government to adopt the ideas in the solutions I provided, we can set an example for other communities and in the future lower addiction rates instead of quietly allowing them to increase.
This added income might be the help needed to escape from government dependence that so many American citizens would welcome. With everyone still feeling the effects from the recession, it’s nice to think that a little more in the pay check will fix the world. But with the negative effects associated with a wage increase we must focus on the important questions. Are the mandated raises really intended to benefit the poor, or is there an alter motive fueling the push to change the salaries. The lack of accurate facts and understanding associated with the pending bill will inevitably leave us all with a thinner wallet and a colossal bout of sticker shock each time we head to McDonalds.
Vision and values stated, “Some contend that supply the homeless and those at risk of becoming homeless with permanent housing at government expense will get homeless people off the streets so they can live stable lives” (Miller) . Despite all the things communities, government, and us as individuals can do to decrease the homeliness rates, there are some things already established to make this
The bail outs given to the banks were a candid approach to preventing the banks from failing, but there were still thousands of Americans failing as well. I believe the banks failing is a projection of the state of the American people. I think that if anymore stimulus or “bail out” money is given that it should be given to the people. The money wouldn’t have to be given directly to the people, but rather the banks that they owe money to. There are programs presently that help, but I firmly believe more should be done for the citizens not the banks.
A National Sales Tax would require them to pay more out of pocket towards food or services, reducing their monthly income. However, the National Sales Tax could reverse this problem by enticing individuals and families to consume less This will allow them to not only build savings but also lower the cost of goods and services because there will be less of a demand for them. The individuals of the United States will ultimately benefit from a decrease in the cost of goods and services regardless of their income status. In conclusion, there have been many arguments about the effects of a National Sales Tax. Those who oppose it say that it is too risky, causing harm the economy, significant job-loss and burden those that cannot afford necessities.
Another way that could solve the crisis is to have the banks modify all loans and lower interest rates to whatever it takes fo... ... middle of paper ... ...ecting not only those who are foreclosing, but the nation around them. It leaves open space that could be used and wasted money sitting on land. The banks could be making more money if they do not foreclose than if they do. Giving people opportunities to pay off their mortgage helps America as a nation and helps people grow and learn from their previous mistakes. Giving people rights to their property and then taking it away because of unemployment and possibly excessive spending makes our nation looked down upon.
The second solution is creating jobs that are able to sustain through an economic crisis. The third solution is for states and towns to conduct public seminars on how to manage and budget ones finances during financially herd times. The final solution is for the government to create stimulus programs to prevent homes from going into foreclosure. Having banks lower their interest rates for all citizens who are in financial need of an interest rate deduction is a solution that will stop foreclosures. How one would get the banks to lower their interest is by explicitly explaining to banks that decreasing interest rates will increase their profitability, because it will attract more citizens who want to be home owners and are concerned about purchasing a house due to the state of the U.S’s present economy.
I have learned that welfare should imply more restrictions. If the American tax payers and the government have to invest huge amounts of money to the program, there money should be well spent. With today’s poor economy people can’t spend money like there is an endless supply. Welfare is a great program but it does have its imperfections.
These findings are disheartening, and seem to be in occurrence within the United States as opposed to Europe. Within Denmark, the use of high taxes and extreme government spending going towards the prevention of those living on the streets helps to eliminate this stigma. One finding discussed in agreeance to that of Tompsett et al. (2003), who outlines that those in Germany and other surrounding countries showed more compassion and want to help the homeless than those within the US, a money hungry country relying on the wealth of the white male, where other races and social classes are forgotten about. Similarly, this study looked at the biases working adult students, who were mostly from the same economic status, perceived homeless and the ways in which they believe this occurs, the following is their
Herman went on to talk to his government, and convince them of the fully fledged effects that taxing him extra would cause. Because of Herman, and many others like him, the government changed its mind, and gave the rich tax breaks, effectively making their tax burden less than that of the working classes. Herman had ensured his own financial security, and as a side effect he had also contributed to a rigged economy. According to David Korten’s article “The Post Corporate World,” those who are fortunate enough to have basic resources and finances to live a prosperous life end up squandering their resources while other less-fortunate people are forced to live a life without the basic needs to live. Herman is one of those fortunate people; he is one of those people who
