The social welfare has been a debatable argument for year in the U.S, many since the people have different beliefs in the welfare policy. Many time being is that the federal government had chosen to stay away from social welfare while also choosing to be heavily involved with it, making the federal agencies heavily involved in policy making. Since poverty was considered a problem, they believe that the problem would get better within time if there was a sudden change to make anti-poverty programs. In the great depression 1930’s the local and state government provided support for the poor, many assistances coming from churches were people would receive free food and agencies supplying the size of aid available to them.
After watching the Republican Debate on October 28, one topic of debate stood out to me. Ted Cruz 's talk about media and politics. It stood out to me as a topic covered in class, and one that, before, I didn 't know much about. During the debate in Denver, Ted Cruz stated.
Major papers from Chicago sent Stenographers to create complete texts of each debate. It was so intense that there were newspapers that were solely from and for each political party. The democrats and the republicans each had their own newspapers devoted to them and edited their parties’ speeches. The format of the debate was the first candidate would talk for 60 mins, then the second candidate would talk for 90 minutes and lastly, it would go back to the first candidate who would talk for another 30 mins. The first debates started with Douglas as the first and candidate and the last three with Lincoln.
Another start to welfare was the New Deal” this was relief for the millions of unemployed Americans. Federal money was payed to the states for public works projects, which employed the unemployed Americans. In a State of Union President Roosevelt declared “the time has come for action by the national government” to provide security against major hazards this is how the first attempts were successful. Social Welfare began because people and their families were having a hard time during the Great Depression
The Social Security Act was the foundation of America’s welfare system, as it created unemployment insurance, created a retirement benefits program for the elderly, and created Aid to Dependent Children. These programs, however, required funding that came from every American’s paycheck. This did not sit well with Goldwater, who thought that people should “be free throughout their lives to spend their earnings when and as they see fit,” and believed that if the government was going to create programs that did not meet the Constitution’s standards, then they were not entitled to the taxes they need from the American people (12). Goldwater saw taxation as a burden on the individual American citizen, and therefore did not support the welfare acts, like Social Security, that required it. Consequently, he emphasized that “the current results of New Deal legislation,” or the “Federal disbursements for human welfare,” were “second only to national defense” in amount of money spent (48).
Before the New Deal, many conservatives often found the idea of social security to be frowned upon because of the misuse of hard working tax money going to waste. This was a significant change because throughout the great depression, the federal government was not heavily relied on for support within the workforce until after the New Deal programs were put into effect. In times of need,
“Our national system of social security, conceived and developed by the Democratic Party, needs to be extended and improved.” (Democratic Party Platforms), this excerpt from the 1952 Democratic Party Platform. It states that Democrats believe that social security is an important issue that needs to be expanded on. Here is another quote from the 1952 Democratic Party Platform that shows Democratic support for social programs “The welfare of all economic and social groups in our society has been promoted by the sound, progressive and humane policies of the Democratic Party.” (Democratic Party Platforms).
2.Give one example of where your tax dollars go to contribute to a social welfare program, and give an example of how you directly or indirectly benefit from a social welfare program. Do you have to be poor to benefit from a social welfare program? Explain. Every time we get a paycheck, some taxes are withheld from it so that the government can pay to provide services. These social welfare benefits include the building and repairs of interstate highways and public parks which many uses such as myself.
Republican Debate Few could possibly eschew the political crossfire that betided on Wednesday night. The top ten presidential candidates met in Boulder, Colorado on 10/28/15, for their third Republican debate of the campaign season. Tensions kindled among several candidates on stage.
Reform in the New Deal, led to numerous Social Welfare programs that are still used today. United States social welfare programs are a set of programs designed to meet the everyday needs of American citizens who meet certain eligibility requirements. These programs consist of educational aid, food stamps, pensions for public employees as well as disability insurance. The Social Security Act of 1935 which created the Social Security System and Social Security Administration, is a welfare program that was created as one of the first objectives in Roosevelt's Second New Deal. The SSS is one of the “largest and most important Social Aid Programs here in the United States.”
Recommendations: Since, Welfare-to-Work was designed on a state level, each state have their way of allocating the funds and it can be different from state to state. Therefore, we identified some issues in Wisconsin, Maryland, and general. Problem 1: Not having any work requirements for Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) recipients to receive benefits. Politicians believe the federal program would set up recipients for long-term use with no incentive of getting them off the program
The debate between The Democratic versus The Republicans was interesting because they went in depth about the main issues happening around the country. The first topic in which they were discussing about was the American military spending. The Democratic talked about that America has to cut their military budget because they are spending almost 500 billion dollars. They were arguing that the U.S military needs to cut the budget because we were spending so much more than China and Russia combine.
Abusing the System Ronald Reagan states, “We should measure welfare’s success by how many people leave welfare, not by how many are added” (qtd. in BrainyQuotes). Welfare’s success today is not being measured by how many people are leaving welfare, but how many are needing assistance. The problem is that recipients of welfare are being added by the minute, and none of them are willing to leave the program because of the benefits it provides. The United States Constitution states the federal government should provide for the common defense and promote the general welfare, but the case is that many recipients are abusing the program (Couch np). Welfare abuse is increasing greatly.
Welfare reform is generally defined as the government 's attempt to change the welfare policy of the country. The main goal of welfare reform is to lower the number of individuals or families ' that are solely dependent on the government assistance to survive as well as helping those families to become self-sufficient.
