Transcript of Kennedy's New Frontier

The New Frontier
By: Clairice Kalkhof Do you know the many great things that Kennedy has done for this country? I am here to explain to you the many great things that he has done! The books definition of the new frontier-it is president Kennedy's proposals to improve the economy, assist the poor, and advance the space program.
So how did he help the economy? He helped it by..... 1. Created a big tax cut! Which stimulated the economy. 2.He expanded social secrity. Now 5 Billion People were on it, and you were now aloud to collect money at the age of 62! 3. He changed welfare to help families in need. 4. He gave good quality food for the people who did not have jobs. 5. Allowed Americans to trade more freely with other countries, they could trade whatever they want without limits. So what did he do for the space program? What did he do for the space program? 1957 wanted to put space station in space. Mercury Program The plan to send seven people in to space who were already pilots but yet they were not spacemen. Kennedy felt that it might be a good idea if their was not human crews going to space. Just to give more time to study and fix anyproblems that needed to be fixed. In april of 1961 the soviet Union had a man fly in space. On may 5th America put a man in space.
They did not orbit Earth. But was in space for a total of 15 minutes. Yuri Gagarin was the first man to enter space. He was from the Soviet Union! Alan Shepard, flew in space for America. The Kennedy wanted the man to fly on the moon. He created a challenge and America was ready to take it. More funding was added to the program. John Gleen orbited earth three times. This was on Feb. 20.1962 the book says he landed in the bahamas. We went to the moon in 1969, not 1968 but a year after!
It was on July.20th and it was Neil Armstrong. Kennedy was not alive to see his dream, his goal come true :( What did he do for the poor? What he did for the poor was he...... The Equal Pay act made sure that everyone who was doing the same work, and the same job, at the same place, got the same amount of money. This was put into fair labor standards act of 1938 also a New Deal Program. This benifited women! And People of other race! He wanted to help the poor with federal aid. Poll tax was outlawed. twenty-fourth amendment! There was an increase in the housing act of 1961 4 billion dollars was given for urban renevations. Minimum wage was increased! JFK has changed the way America is..... Even to this day.... This is because of the New Frontier :) The End Now it is time for the review! Sorry to say but it really is not the end! There are other things to know like when Kennedy gave the speech to present the New Frontier. He gave the speech during acceptance speech for his election. Many of the things had happened. So is their anything else? "[W]e stand today on the edge of a New Frontier - the frontier of the 1960's, the frontier of unknown opportunities and perils, the frontier of unfilled hopes and unfilled threats. ... Beyond that frontier are uncharted areas of science and space, unsolved problems of peace and war, unconquered problems of ignorance and prejudice, unanswered questions of poverty and surplus". this was his quote that I retrived from wikipedia!
