If you ran government
If I ran the government
If I ran the government I’d try to be as fair as possible. I would increase money to build more homeless shelters and spend less on a war that has been going on for 10 years. Every year over 2 million kids alone will become homeless. If there were more homeless shelters and programs within them to help the children receive some educational or job training they’d be able get right back up and have a successful future instead of possibly becoming addicted to alcohol and drugs. I would not cut any programs in the U.S. but I would change Social Security. Too many people today are paying for people in the future to receive their retirement funds when they might not even be able to earn heir money because too many people are unemployed. I would also allow the people to have a minute say with the government’s spending and not let it ultimately reside as the governments power only. Of course the government is supposed to spend it in a wise manner that’s best for the people, but sometimes they spend too much on wars that have not been making any progress. They should be spending more on public services such as Medicare to allow more people with a lower-income to receive medical attention for them and their family. Gridlock will always be an issue in the government, but a few regulations can be created on the amount of time Congress has to pass a policy. The people have the right to increase protest and demand the government to make a quicker decision , hopefully they’d take notice of what most people;s idea on the policy and make a decision on their observations. No one can really force the parties to make quicker decisions so they can have a new regulation forcing them to make a compromise to please both parties. In the end, the policy is supposed to be reflected upon the needs and beliefs of the citizens and not a specific political party. If after the appointed time nothing gets done, the should make a compromise or leave it to the people to vote. The government will always have flaws and policies people do not agree with but in the end it should do everything for the protection of the governed and their rights.
