Are there areas which you believe the federal government should be more powerful?

The Question(s):  Are there areas which you believe the federal government should be more powerful?  For example, should federal officials exercise more power to require greater uniformity in policy among the states?  Should the areas of health care, education, border security, voting, law enforcement in cities or other such topics be in the hands of the federal or state governments?   Why or why not?  Be sure to pick at least 2 topics to discuss.  You do not have to use the topics I mention.  You may come up with your own ideas of where the federal government should take the lead.  (Note:  Do not say the federal government should have no power without explaining thoroughly why.  Try to find at least 2 areas where they should have some responsibility.)
