OnPoint on WACH Fox: The U.S. government and the welfare of its people
COLUMBIA, S.C. (WACH) - This week on OnPoint on WACH Fox we look at the U.S. government and the welfare of its people.
Does the United States government have an overall responsibility to cover its citizens' basic needs?
For instance, let's look at healthcare. Is it a privilege or should every American have the right to basic care? What about providing food for the poor, medicine, or taking care of the elderly? Should the government provide after-school programs in areas where students need to catch up academically? Or is it up to every individual to fend for themselves?
This week on OnPoint, a closer look at where the line should be drawn between the role of the government and people's responsibility as individuals.
