Create a 100% sir tax all petroleum products. This would currently place the minimum price of gasoline at $5.00/ gallon(approx), discouraging superfluous use of automobiles as recreational vehicles and encouraging public transportation. The funds generated could be used to create public owned solar power grids to lower fossil fuel consumption
This is more of a comment on the idea of basic housing for the homeless. In the state of TN we have homeless shelters. There, the homeless have their needs met for food, clothing, and a warm place to stay, It would be great if every homeless person in this country could have a private shelter, but there is no way this could be paid for. We need to keep trying to find a way to help educate and find jobs for the homeless, so that they can get off the streets and have a meaningful life!

Have one in four or so people on welfare trained in good child care, then employ them as government paid child care for those in poverty to allow them to get better jobs without worrying about how they will pay for child care while they work. This gives good jobs to ~25% of them, and frees the others to get jobs knowing that their children will be well cared for.
