AEI: “What Works in Helping the Poor?”
Posted by Larry Doyle on July 16, 2014 7:03 AM |
Is America on the right track?
Overwhelmingly most Americans feel the nation is not headed in the right direction. Consistently over the last 4 years, 2 out of every 3 American voters have expressed their belief that the nation is headed in the wrong direction. Only 1 in 4 American voters believe the nation is headed in the right direction.
In my opinion, what is the critical issue that will define our future? The fact that we live in a nation that is increasingly divided in terms of incomes and opportunities. Both political parties would like to have us believe that they have the right answers to addressing these issues. Really? Count me as not impressed.
While we hear a whole lot of redistribution rhetoric on one side of the aisle, the other seems to talk mostly about simply lowering taxes and regulations. Meanwhile more and more Americans struggle to make ends meet.
What to do?
Take a listen to this 12-minute clip recently released by the American Enterprise Institute that puts forth four basic principles addressing work, welfare, family, and the economy. I do not know about you but this message from Robert Doar, who has meaningful experience in dealing with these issues, strikes me as employing a whole lot of ‘sense on cents.’
