|Governor Ronald W. Reagan R, California|
I don't think anyone would design the New Deal and Great Society today the way they were designed back in the 1930s and 1960s. Today's so-called Progressives, would have expanded those programs. Today's Conservatives, Conservative Libertarians really, would have decentralized those programs have the state's be responsible for running them in their own state's. Today's Liberals, such as myself would have designed those programs to empower people in need to get on their own feet. Things like education, job training, even encouraging disabled people to work as much as they can, encouraging economic development in low-income communities. And I even like the idea as a Liberal Federalist myself of having the state's run these social welfare programs. Provided that the money for those programs is used the way its intended.
