Week 2 Discussion 2

 Social Services Initiatives

Should the Federal Government increase social services initiatives to improve the quality of life issues for the less fortunate ones.

Secondly, what impact would this have on the federal deficit? Is that a burden we should place on all of the citizenry? Why? Respond to at least two of your classmates’ postings.
