    Healthcare--only for productive citizens, the willfully non-productive, screw'm.

    Education--absolutely, but we need to address how funds are spent, not just give a failed system more money so it can continue failing

    Salary-- no, that should be based upon competitive rates for the type of labor and training needed. Our labor pool already costs us more for the level of quality than necessary. American Labor cannot compete at current levels with imported goods that are cheaper. The American public over the last 40 or so years has repeatedly based it purchasing on price or quality, neither of which American Labor can compete with. Automation will continue to reduce the amount of unskilled uneducated labor needed anyways.

    Education is certainly the key, we need a total revamp of our education systems and get them actually producing educated and skilled workers that will be needed in America. Unskilled and uneducated manual labor as the core of our economy is done. It's over, adapt or fail. Increasing salary and costs for that labor segment is the road to failure.

    The federal government should not be involved. Care of the needy is a responsibility that was never delegated by the states to the federal government.

    Federal oversight on welfare is a must due to the politicalization of people's needs.

    What you really mean is you want the Feds to make sure some states do not take sensible actions that would embarrass others.

    I think allowing each state more leeway in welfare laws would be instructive. We have seen the performance difference in Economic approaches between the larger states, why not give them a shot at different welfare options and lets see how they really compare? Let Texas adopt it's workfare ideas from the past while allowing Cali. to keep handing out bigger and bigger chunks of the pie for free and see how the two do.

    I bet in the end, the workfare system will greatly outdo the welfare system in affordability while still providing a "safety" net. But then again, maybe not as all those liberal welfarist run from Texas to other states to avoid actually working for what they get will greatly screw the numbers up. Oh, wait, liberals running from the state? Yippeee, lets "get'r done".
