The U.S. Government’s expansive role in public policy is caught in a swirl ofconflicting cross-currents. On the one hand, popular expectations about government’s responsibility to solve problems often exceed the capacity of state and local authorities to respond effectively. On the other hand, policies developed at the national level may no sufficiently reflect the great diversity of interests across the U.S. to be effective at the local level. Moreover, the search for effective policy is further complicated by theoretical debates about the constitutional framework of federalism (e.g. what limits on national power can be derived from the 10th Amendment?). The policy issue is going to be federal poverty, welfare and unemployment policies. It must have significant federalism component that requires national, state, and local interaction. It should also involve issues with a strong potential for tension or conflict among different levels of government. Research and write an essay on this policy  it must a.) Clearly identify a specific federal policy, and summarize the elements of the policy, including the problem it is supposed to solve or improve. b) summarize the history of the policy.

In your evaluation, clearly explain your interpretation of American federalism’s constitutional framework and why the federal policy is or is not consistent with it.
