More money for CPS Services to protect children from abusers; a national database of abusers and their victims; better follow up by CPS workers to homes of children who have been designated as victims of abuse. There are way too many children being abused and killed because of lack of resources for CPS Services.
Restructure corporate income tax so that the companies that made over 200 billion dollars will pay a fair share, instead of nothing. If the Republican party is being honest about debt reduction being a priority, then they can close the tax loopholes and reduce the debt while saving Medicare, social security, and repairing the infrastructure.
show that Hydro-Fracking is not sustainable, way too toxic,wastes millions of gallons of fresh water per well, per day, fills up the groundwater with 600 plus, volatile,hormone disruptors, and cancer causing chemicals, skirts the Clean Air, Clean and Clean Water Acts, by way of ,the Halliburton Loophole ,written by the extraction industry, and Dick Chaney,leaks large amounts of "Methane" that is 80 times worse than C O2.

FIREWORKS present one of the deadliest ongoing degraders of clean air and water quality in the USA.They are detonated at an ever growing and alarming rate.

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.

Start a National campaign to teach people how to prepare healthy food for themselves. The skill of food acquisition and preparation is necessary for healthy populations.

If a janitor in Africa and a scientist in the US work an hour, they have spent physical and nervous energy in like manner. With modern supercomputers we can calculate how long it takes, say, to deliver a quart of milk from cow to table.
