This is the last policy section. More pres actions and gov actions might be helpful. More Era of the Future. I'm about 5,000% certain that Welfare will expand massively and in ways we might not be able to completely visualize by the year 2100. I think if I am wrong it will only be because humans are so modified as to make most welfare unnecessary.

This may accomplish what I'm thinking but implementing Nixon's "New Federalism" agenda on Welfare could be a potential choice for him only perhaps.

Giving states full authority over welfare in the form of block grants from the Federal Government.

Would a Jobs Guarantee fall under this category? Its been a proposal of the Democrats dating back to at least the 70's that many economists and Sociologists still advocate today


Additionally, while a guaranteed minimum income is there you could also include Nixon's FAP which was a means-tested payments to poor families which could be split off from the more traditional UBI which is just a flat payment to all (but I'm not sure if the nuance is broad enough for that split to be warrented)

Only allow Social Security funds to be paid out to those who paid into it (and survivor spouse)

allow portion of Social Security trust to be invested in the stock market (select mutual funds).

Enterprise Zones

Child care 

abolish all federal welfare programs (give tax credits and funding to local churches and organizations to give a hand up)
