Constitutional Reform and Governance in the U.S. (& Around the World)

Competitive Federalism


Federal vs. State government funding Reforms (18 to 68)

  • Redefine economic priorities between States and the Federal government on the bases of age.
  • Federal government should be responsible funding needs for people under 18 (children) and over 68 (retirees). Federal government should provide funding for education and healthcare for everyone under the age of 18.  Federal government should provide funding for retirement and health care for retirees (indexed depending on the occupation).  (Plus, national defense and security, the courts, space exploration, transportation and environmental protection.)
  • States should be primarily responsible with promoting economic growth, job creation, and quality of life, by targeting working adults. Therefore, States should be responsible for funding subsidies (agricultural, manufacturing, all…), development projects, higher education, healthcare for working adults, unemployment compensation (and minimum wage), etc.
