America needed a change in its direction and civil rights was at the forefront of the necessary changes that needed to happen as well as the war on poverty. However, as with most government plans, the funding didnâ€™t do much other than create more bureaucracy and lack enforcement for the things that needed policing. Much of the spending on social services just went to covering instituting the programs and to pay for the people running the programs. The people who really needed the help didnâ€™t get nearly enough of the money that was earmarked for the programs. The government doesnâ€™t seem to be capable of this kind of work and I am not sure if they should be. What about you? Do you think that our government does a good job in creating social service programs and then carrying them out and making sure those who need help, actually get it?
