Social assistance programs need to comprise a larger chunk of the U.S. Budget. We can provide for the basic needs of all Americans. Housing can be provided through the Homestead Renewal Act. Excess food commodities produced by American farmers can feed anyone who is hungry. The medical system needs to be overhauled to provide for everyone in need, without charging exorbitant rates. Jobs will be created when we invest in rebuilding and protecting the infrastructure of our country. Some people cannot work due to mental incapacities or other types of disabilities. These people can be given a monthly stipend to cover costs of basic necessities, such as clothing and other needs.
Eventually, automation may displace workers when it is employed to perform many basic functions and duties, such as providing services to those in need. We can prepare now to care for the needs of our entire population by investing in social assistance programs.
