How America Would Be Different: Without Important People and Times in History Ashley Kimpling 4/28/2014 The first topic I have chosen to focus on is “Reaganomics”; this was the preposition that Reagan made when he ran for president. It was an idea of making tax cuts for the wealthy of 30%. Although only a 25% tax cut was approved Reagan still thought that this would help the economy. His reasoning for this was that the wealthy would save that money and be able to spend more money, by spending more he thought it would create more jobs. Unfortunately, while Reagan was in office the national debt tripled; it went from one trillion to three trillion dollars (Independence Hall Association, 2008-2014).
In Barack Obama’s re-election ad, “Won’t Say – Obama for America TV Ad,” the targeted audience is the middle class people. Obama is trying to get across the point that the Republican candidate Mitt Romney will, if elected, raise taxes on the average middle class family in order to get tax breaks for the rich. The campaign ad for President Barack Obama, “Won’t Say – Obama for America TV Ad,” presents a visual and textual argument with the strategies of pathos, logos, and ethos to show to the middle class people that Mitt Romney will raise their taxes in order to cut taxes for the rich, like himself. But Romney is not saying exactly what he will do to the middle class people. The argument of Obama’s ad is slightly effective after further research; Romney’s plans are not necessarily to raise taxes on the middle class, but at the same time, he will lower the tax rates for the higher class.
His statement is letting the people of the United States know that as Speaker of the House, he is dedicated to ensuring that the economy pull through its fragile state without any new taxes that he believes would increase the national debt and create another economic hurdle for the United States to climb. By shedding a negative light on this Health Care Overhaul bill, the GOP is also shedding a negative light on the Obama administration. If the GOP can pass the Health care Overhaul Repeal bill, then they would have shown flaws and weakness in Obama’s domestic policy, thus hurting his chances at re-election. Although this may seem like a smart move by the Republicans, it can potentially back-fire. If the repeal is passed, then the GOP loses its “hot button issue” that can help bring in voters for the
Jobs Plan Introduction Mitt Romney’s Plan for a Stronger Middle Class is a five-part proposal for turning around the economy and delivering more jobs and more take-home pay for American families. While President Obama continues looking to big government spending programs as the solution to the nation’s challenges, Mitt understands that it is hardworking Americans in the private sector who will achieve economic growth and job creation. His plan will end the middle class squeeze of declining incomes and rising prices, bring back prosperity, and create 12 million jobs during his first term. Part one of Mitt’s plan is to achieve energy independence on this continent by 2020. America is blessed with extraordinary natural resources, and developing them will create
He was able to get Congress to ban racial discrimination in federal government jobs, and he did sign an executive order to end to segregation in the military. His dream of raising the minimum wage came true, and under his leadership ten million more Americans could be a part of the social security programs Congress had expanded. A federal housing program for the urban poor brought as many problems as it did gains in that the public housing that evolved from this program did little more than replace a private landlord with a federal one. Big government and regulation chipped away even further at our freedoms as the federal government made social and economic decisions that before the progressive era had solely been within the power and freedom of the individual. Other parts of Truman’s Fair Deal never made it through Congress.
Usually, the election represents the competition between two major parties – the Democratic and Republican. However, there exist many third parties that constantly fail during the elections. One of the major differences between Democratic and Republican Parties concerns taxes and the economy. Democrats promote fair trade, balancing budgets, and believe in necessity to pay down national debt through enhanced taxes on higher income Americans (Parla). The Democratic Party states that the government has the possibility to create economic opportunities, help those people who suffer from current real estate crisis and prevent it in future.
Project You Decide The unemployment rate is going to reach 20% if nothing is done. What advise can we give the president of the United States to avoid this high unemployment rate? My advisor Mr. Burke would recommend that the President lowers interest rates further to help businesses and consumers get back on their feet. This addresses to the Federal Reserve Bank to stimulate the economy by making the barrowing easy. Miss Lee is suggesting tax increase and government spending reduction.
One Hurdle: Funding to Pay for 8 Million Students One Hurdle: Funding to Pay for 8 Million Students President Obama would like to make a change in higher education. President Obama want us to produce 8 million more college graduates by 2020, because America has to have the highest share of graduates compared to every other nation (www.whitehouse.gov). One believes that this is not something that we can accomplish with our country in this state. A big hurdle that we must overcome to make the 8 million students graduates by 2020, is to provide adequate funding to pay for college. There are no signs that show that funding hurdle can be overcome.
One of the most influential promises President Barrack Obama made was getting the Don’t Ask Don’t Tell done away with once and for all by starting the bill of getting the policy appealed. President Obama to some has not done much to help the Unites States issues such as the number of people whom have lost their homes because of unemployment and the 3.6 billion dollar deficient that the country seems to have all the sudden fallen into. President Obama according to author Andre Michael Eggelletion of the Real deal talk website has mange to do so much for the US to name a few things he has signed an executive order on government contracting to fight waste and abuse, Signed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, restoring basic protections against pay discrimination for women and other workers, Launched a U.S. financial and banking rescue plan, Provided affordable, high-quality child care to working families, Cracked down on companies that deny sick pay, vacation and health insurance to workers by abusing the employee classification of independent contractor. Such companies also avoid paying Social Security, Medicare and unemployment insurance taxes for those workers: Designated $1.5 billion from the Troubled Asset Relief Program to fund programs at local housing finance agencies in the states hardest hit by the housing crisis: California, Florida, Nevada, Arizona and Michigan. The
Even though the bill has its pros. For example according to the article from CBS news.com this bill “would expand coverage to 32 million Americans who are currently uninsured” and “would reduce the deficit by $143 billion over the first ten years” but it will also cost $940 billion over ten years. Also according to the article “Six months after the enactment, insurance companies could no longer deny children coverage based on a preexisting condition and insurance agencies must allow children to stay on their parent’s insurance plans until age 26” Now the cons, the reason I believe this bill is unjust is the individual and employer mandate. According the article “in 2014, everyone must purchase health insurance or face a $695 annual fine. There are some exceptions for low-income people.” and “employers with more than 50 employees must provide health insurance or pay a fine of $2,000 per worker each year if any worker receives federal subsidies to purchase health insurance.
