8. Welfare

None of the responsibility for providing government financial assistance to low-income individuals in need should fall to the federal government but to state and local governments instead. This should be considered a state function, like state unemployment insurance. This would result in citizens of every state feeling satisfied that none of the dollars they pay in taxes will go to welfare recipients living in states at the other end of the country. This gives both the providers and recipients of welfare funds more of a sense of community which may tend to result in a greater degree of oversight and responsibility as to how the funds are distributed by the donors and spent by the recipients.
