The government help people and most of the people don’t know how much the government helps. During the 1930’s there was a Great Depression when people’s businesses were having to cut back, so they had to fire many people. People who were fired would not be able to pay their bills and they were getting kicked out their own homes. To fix this problem, the government created many programs like the TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority) and the PWA (Public Works Administration) which helped create new jobs for people working on infrastructure projects. Because the government had so much control during the Great Depression, it was able to help its citizens. How much control should the government have in the lives of its citizens? The government should have a lot of power over its citizens because it can protect them. During the Great Depression, the government protected people by creating jobs through the TVA and taxing the rich to support the poor. Today, the government protects people by limiting immigration.
During the Great Depression, the government protected people by creating jobs through the TVA. The TVA helped too the TVA was giving power they also had dams the TVA was a big help to the government. If you look up the TVA they are a big power and dams company they play a big part with the government. “In 1933 Harry Hopkins, Director of the Federal Emergency Relief Agency, asked journalist Lorena Hickok to travel through the United States and report on the state of the nation’’. Hickok was in the Tennessee Valley during June, 1934, and sent two reports to Hopkins recording her impression of the local scene and the local reaction to TVA: Nearly 10,000 men–about 9,500–are at work in the Valley now, at Norris and Wheeler dams, on various clearing and building projects all over the area. Thousands of them are residents of the Valley, working five and a half hours a day, five days a week, for a really LIVING wage.”
During the Great Depression, Huey Long was trying to tax the rich people to help the poor people in need. “Huey Long was a charismatic southerner who gained a massive following of rural southerners after he took action to provide expanding highways system in Louisiana to minimize rural isolation and he expanded both hospitals and educational institutions.” Taxes money to help people out in the long run when you get older. Taxes are good when it takes money out of your pay check that all going to when you get older than the government will give you so much money you don’t have to worry about paying bill. This support my baby thesis because taxes help old people out and it can help you out when you get older it takes money from the rich and give to the poor for the people in need Huey Long plan was to expand an hospital in the 1900’s so that the people who was in need would get the help they need. At first, Long was on board with FDR’s New Deal but later he abandoned FDR since he believed he did not do enough to eliminate inequality in the United States. He proposed several plans that would help even the playing field for all Americans. Huey Long was what many would consider “far left” today.
Long created a Share the Wealth program. This program set limits to how much money people could earn. It included a 100% tax on incomes over $1 million and allowed the government to take and redistribute fortunes over $5 million. His tagline “every man a king” gained him considerable support among the lower middle class, who resented America’s dramatic wealth disparity.
that say they Immigrated sneak in the USA without any paper re legal. Immigration is a very bad thing we have people who do not belong in the USA people who do not have legal papers and the government is trying to stop them from coming in the USA. According to the text Immigrants can be in the USA they would just have to fix a few thing and become a US citizen. I feel like the government should have as much power he needs. “According to researchers at the University of California, Davis, approximately 70 percent of all farmworkers in the United States are here illegally. ‘But without these workers, the agricultural industry in California would suffer tremendously and national. The majority of immigrants now sneak in through the back door that the federal government purposely leaves open’ According to the text Immigrants can be in the USA they would just have to fix a few thing and become a US citizen.

The majority of immigrants now sneak in through the back door that the federal government purposely leaves open’. Thanks to the negligence of the federal government, far more people move into the USA than come in through the legal immigration process.This has got to change.a population of 6½ million people, agriculture is a $35 billion per annum industry and a vital source of the nation’s food supply” ().
Someone might argue against what I say because most people feel like the government do not help them but they do not know that he gives us protection homes land everything we need and make sure we do not fall as a nation. It is very important most people do not know this but the government helps the government give us everything we would need to help our self and others the government should have a lot of power over people in doc A and C it talks about how much the government does to help the us out and protect the people the government gave people jobs to help him by building businesses during the Great depression and if the government did not give those people jobs the usa would of fell as a nation the government is the best help back in 1900s and the government is still the best help in the still to this day.
