There are possible solutions to aid this wicked problem to assist Americans with proper financial funding and government oversight. There isn’t enough government intervention to help the middle-class be revived and to boast the economy. Hospitals also have extremely costly bills for emergency situations which a lot of Americans don’t have the money for or even be able to cover the insurance. Wages have decreased amongst America over the last 20 years, most people are unable to contribute a lot of money to businesses to help the economy.
