Liberals in the USA are neo liberalists. Welfare and other problems of society are met with Control and corporate welfare. People management with no real solutions.
Liberal programs are sometimes even worse then what Republicans have to offer.
Liberals off band aide solutions, non answers, and non solutions. Like the welfare system, a power trip that controls the poor.
I seen an article about Liberal ideas for homes for the poor. They looked like dog houses. What would needed is quality affordable sustainable housing.
The Socialist solution would hat is affordable? Well, if you’re in the stable middle class, “affordable” means $210,000. That’s about the average cost of a house in this country.
If you’re part of the working poor, making minimum wage and barely getting by, the dream of home ownership is completely out of reach. After all, the powers that be in this country seem to think that a home selling for $140,000 is affordable to pretty much everyone.
Tell that to someone making $7.50/hr. To them, $140,000 is just as expensive, and just out of reach, as a $210,000 home.
What we need is truly affordable housing. Housing that anyone can afford. Houses that cost $25,000 or $50,000. Not four times that. Low Income Housing Everyone must live somewhere. However, when a family owns its home, there is a conspicuous increase in overall self-esteem of its members and general family well being, which ultimately leads to positive social results. The venues available to low-income families are rental property, public housing, or sheer luck. Purchase of a home is often out of reach for a low-income family because of the down-payment barrier. Further, low-income families typically have very little positive credit history.
Lets look at the Affordable Health Care Act, it costs thousands of dollars, while National Health Insurance would save us money, costing a few hundred dollars. Forced pay fines the people who can not afford it. So we get a fine when we cannot afford health care.

The United States is the only major nation in the industrialized world that does not guarantee health care as a right to its people,” Sanders said. “Meanwhile, we spend about twice as much per capita on health care with worse results than other countries that spend far less. It is time that we bring about a fundamental transformation of the American health care system. It is time for us to end private, for-profit participation in delivering basic coverage. It is time for the United States to provide a Medicare-for-all single-payer health coverage program,” Sanders said.
While making the case for a single-payer system nationwide, Sanders applauded his home state of Vermont for its progress toward developing its own single-payer system which could become a model for the nation.
Martin O Mally States: The Affordable Care Act has extended health insurance to nearly 17 million Americans who otherwise would not have it. Yet 36 million people remain uninsured, and in some states the uninsured rate remains as high as 20 percent. More than half of those still uninsured say that cost is the reason they lack coverage.
Actually, many health clinics are closing across, 900,000 people with no Health Care, Millions of health care workers will lose their jobs.
The Liberal disaster in the United States must be replaced with the Social Democratic. Liberals don’t seem to get us.
In 2011, according to a US Census Bureau report, the official poverty rate in the United States was 15 percent, amounting to 46.2 million people in poverty. The poverty rate for children under 18 was even more sobering, with more than one in five kids living in poverty.
Further, the numbers indicate that things have gotten worse over the past decade: Poverty hit a 17-year high in 2010, and remained at that rate in 2011. Rates are substantially worse for blacks and Latinos, more than a quarter of whom live in poverty.
It’s clear that the edifice – the socioeconomic and political framework that drives these trends – has failed.
