Guarantee jobs for the poorest of the poor
From: Hugh M., Eugene, OR
It is ridiculous to expect the private job market to supply all the jobs that the people of this country need. In bad times, the large companies just throw away people -- some to live under bridges. There should be a profits tax that goes toward employing the very poor. That, coupled with a doubling of the public low income housing stock, would go a long way to reducing poverty.
