An interesting concept

So in an article I'm reading for school it talks about how high we value money over people and how as a country we have up to the second reports of our economy but no social reports. Apparently, between 1960 and 1980 there were many reports done, but Reagan when he took office removed the funding (how hot is hell exactly, Ronald?) and now these reports are done by individuals doing their own research. Imagine if we had on CNN another scolly/screen thing that reported on social issues. IE: Money was cut again for medicaid, 5,000 more people to be unisured, the average gay man is 23% likely to be verbally harrassed (I made that up) etc. I think it's a very hard thing to report on, but think a report like that would bring so many issues to the public eye and (hopefully) people wouldn't be so ignorant.
