I have not been given the “okay” yet for my final topic choice. I will run it by you on Monday after class. My idea is the issue of providing government assistance to citizens. This is a very hot topic in the government today, and has been for years. Each side has very strong opinions and valid points. The two sides of course would be for and against it. The “for” side is for the government providing welfare to people who need it most. Main points for this side would be; they are our citizens therefore our responsibility, having poor people puts a damper on the economy and they cannot afford the basic necessities. Also a lot of the people who are on welfare also work, therefore there tax paying citizens as well. Usually people on welfare are in a program called TANF, which helps and encourages parents to find jobs. The T in TANF stands for temporary. I feel the main argument that this side would use is that welfare can save lives. The “against” side would say that welfare is turning us into a socialist economy when were supposed to be the most capitalist country, we cannot afford it, people should take care of themselves, and the last point would be some people abuse it. The against groups main point would probably be that were a capitalist economy This topic impacts every tax paying citizen in the United States. It impacts them because the cost of welfare directly effects the taxes they pay, and a lot of these same citizens feel they need the welfare provided by the government to survive and take care of their families. This topic impacts every level of government seeing how there all connected, but mostly the federal government because they’re the ones who end up paying out directly. I feel this topic would be good to write about because it is relevant to today’s politics and also interesting. This is probably a better idea than the first topic I proposed, seeing how the first one was already disproven. Hopefully this topic works.
