history [ +-+Tuesday+-+ May 24th, 2005... 6:43 AM]
Section 22.2: The Great Society
Great Society-The legislative program proposed by President Lyndon Johnson in the 1960; included civil rights laws, federal aid to education, elderly medical care, and poverty programs.
VISTA- Federal Program that sends volunteers to aid poor communities in the United States.
Medicare-Public health-care plan that fund medical care for the elderly.
Immigration Act of 1965-A law that changed quotas favoring northern and western Europeans and expanded the number of people allowed to immigrate.
Lyndon B. Johnson-Thirty-Sixth President of the United States 1963-1969; expanded social assistance with his Great Society program; increased United States commitment during the Vietnam War.
·On November 22, 1963, President John F. Kennedy was fatally shot in an ‘open car’ parade to mobilize support in Dallas, Texas as he looked ahead to reelection the following year. Kennedy was pronounced dead soon after his arrival at a nearby hospital.
·JFK’s Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson takes office.
·To work on his reelection, Johnson capitalized on voters fears of nuclear war, using a television commercial in which a innocent girls ‘counting game’, turned into a count down of nuclear war.
·Johnson appeals to the voters with his campaign of a “Great Society” in the speech:
Your imagination, your initiative, and
Your indignation will determine
Whether we build a society where progress
is the servant of our needs, or a society
where old values and new visions are
Buried under unbridled growth.
For in your time we have the opportunity
To move not only toward the
Rich society and the powerful society, but
Upward toward the Great Society.
·To work on his reelection, Johnson capitalized on voters fears of nuclear war, using a television commercial in which a innocent girls ‘counting game’, turned into a count down of nuclear war.
·‘Landslide Lyndon’ won in a landslide with an overwhelming: 61% of the popular vote, 486 to 52 in the Electoral College, 295 to 140 in the House of Representatives, and 68 to 32 in the Senate.
This landslide empowered Johnson to move ahead more aggressively
·Johnson worked to get legislation presented by Kennedy passed
·The legislation:
1. Tax Cut- As it took affect, GNP rose 7.1% (1964), 8.1% (1965), and 9.5% (1966). The deficit shrank; prosperity generated new tax revenues; unemployment fell; inflation remained in check
2. War on Poverty-Economic Opportunity Act (1964) lead to Volunteers in Service to America (VISTA) to send volunteers to help people in poor communities. This defined housing, health, and education policies.
3. Medicare-Johnson focused attention on the increasing cost of medical care, Medicare would provide health care for the elderly (65+); Medicaid would meet the needs of poor Americans of any age who could not afford their own private health insurance. This was the biggest piece of social legislation since the Social Security Act (New Deal)
4. Aid to Education- Johnson provided funds (tax dollars) for elementary and secondary education in public schools
5. Department of Housing and Urban Development- Created as a result of rent supplements given to the poor. Also provided substantial aid to colleges and universities. Gave grants to artists through the National Endowment for the Arts, and gave grants to scholars through the National Endowment for Humanities. First assistance to these groups since the Works Progress Administration.
6. Immigration Act of 1965- Eliminated quotas that has discriminated against all immigrants from areas other than northern and western Europe. Family members of US citizens and political refugees where exempt from these quotas
·Changes in the rights of people included: Gideon v. Wainwright-suspects are to be given legal aid if they can’t afford it, Escobedo v. Illinois- right to an attorney while being questioned, Miranda v. Arizona- suspect must be warned of his/her rights before being questioned by police (Miranda Rights), Griswald v. Connecticut- rights to couples privacy, found prayer in schools unconstitutional.
·Polls showed Johnson was more popular than Kennedy was
·Criticisms began to serface, middle-class complained much of their money was being spent on the poor, others complained it left to much power to the government rather than the people, Michael Harrington wrote a book The Other America which argued that the money spent by the government was not enough.
