Austerity is a popular word there using in this year election. But the word austerity is being used in part with the economy. Which simple means “reduced availability of luxuries and consumer goods, esp when brought about by government policy”
A lot of times I've been hearing during the election is cutting taxes and funding for different programs, which is our safety nets for all of us.
With all the talk I haven't yet heard of many cuts or reduction in luxuries items.
Reduction in program that target the ones with lower incomes isn't necessary fair way of austerity.
The ones I'm most concern those who are with out adequate means. Which our safety nets need to be in place and completely intact.
They should have adequate funding. Adequate funding does or doesn't mean to increase or decrease budget for our safety nets.
At present time some of our safety nets are set up to trap one into poverty.
Actual it time to look how our safety nets are actual manged. Are safety nets shouldn't be sat up to entrap someone into pauperization.
