Katey Goodshaw Due: March 13, 2012 Period 6, U.S. History PWA, Benefits for All The New Deal was a series of policies started by Franklin Delano Roosevelt as an attempt to stabilize America’s economy during the Great Depression. One of FDR’s attempts to get America out of the Great Depression was the formation of alphabet agencies. These agencies were started to give work to citizens who were unemployed and to better the general community. The agencies helped unemployed people make a living during an economically difficult time and helped improve communities for all residents. I believe that the New Deal was an important improvement to our country because it helped many people during a time of struggle.
(2011), President John Adams, signer of both the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights, in an address to military on 10/11/1798 said "We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions if they're not bridled by morality and religion. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and a religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." The Founding Fathers made references to God in both their public and private lives. Even a quick scan of their speeches and correspondences one can find many allusions to God.
Barack Obama has failed to recognize the separation of powers and also fails to treat Congress as an equal branch of government. There are numerous instances in which Barack Obama has gone against the law and the Constitution. The fact that these laws can go broken with no punishment shows the effects of President Obama trying to change America. Before being elected, Barack Obama promised to “fundamentally transform the United States” (Does). He did fulfill this statement but not in the way he implied he would.
With this in mind, Barack Obama and John McCain both have many similar views on this topic. The economy is surprisingly America’s number one concern for the upcoming year, and both nominees are striving for votes. Both want to do what is best for the country, like lower gas prices, give jobs back to millions of Americans, and make lives better for the average middle class working family. Obama and McCain would both like to expand unemployment benefits making those who lost their jobs better off. Each of them plans to provide for the jobless and make room for many more opportunities of employment.
Health Care Crisis in America July 24, 2011 The government’s latest attempt at fixing America’s health care crisis, The Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care Act (ACA), was signed into law on March 23, 2010. Supporters touted the Act as the definitive answer to America’s myriad of health care woes. While the law has yet to be fully implemented, there are already indications that little, if any, improvements have resulted in health care coverage or cost control. In fact, health care coverage is becoming increasingly less adequate and more expensive for consumers. This paper presents a brief study of some of the problems that led to the present health care crisis and offers recommendations as to how to address the issues.
The information on our countries economy and government are accurate and insightful. We as a country are continuing to prosper and other countries are still struggling after the recession our government works hard to ensure we are not having our taxes raised and that they are using sound judgment in their policies. 3. The author’s opinion on this topic is that our government is on the right track and that we as citizens should stop our complaining as we have it pretty good, we could be worse off like the Americans. 4.
There were certain benefits to his approach, such as his “tax and spend” policies. The U.S. has been inclined to spend more money than it has taken in, which is indicative of the national debt at the beginning of the 21st century. The budget for the majority of the 21st century has a consistency of deficits and economic crisis. In 2008, the economy entered a bad recession resulting in high oil and food prices, and vast amounts of bankruptcies and foreclosures. The federal government attempted to fix the economic problems through costly economic stimulus packages, which only resulted in further national debt.
This could cause some conflict in the government which would not help matters either. 15 million Americans are still out of work, and many citizens are questioning whether or not they should have trusted Obama. Gas prices have been a major topic as of late, and they will most likely continue to get worse unless a major change is made by Obama and the rest of the Democratic nation. The national average gas price has gone up a whopping 25 percent since Obama became President. The Democrats blame the Republicans for this high cost of gasoline because they link Republicans to big oil companies.
Race in todays politics is a taboo topic, white people can not unite in fear of being labeled as racial superioritists and a black president who marks african american on the national census but campaigns for whites and spanish americans. Race for politicians is an over whelming endeavor in which sides are inquired. People rallying and supporting of a man whom in most cases fail them at every turn, which only leads to the idea that they favor him for the color of his skin. The economy has fallen into a deeper hole these past three years, there is no dominant ideology there is just non sensical groupthink. Projections read by 2050
Immigration Reform ECO-301 Week 7 Final April 24, 2013 Immigration Reform ECO-301 Week 7 Final April 24, 2013 Immigration Reform in the United States Today Immigration reform is a movement for change with in the current immigration policy. Immigration reform is a controversial issue in the United States. I will be focusing on the economic benefits of immigration reform in the United States. Most Americans would be surprised to learn about the substantial benefits of immigration reform to the United States economic growth and prosperity, and thus our ability to reduce our federal budget deficit over the next 10 years. Although the majority of Americans agree that our current immigration system is in need of a change, there remains a lack of understanding about the real effects that new immigrants have on wages, jobs, budgets, and the U.S. economy in general.
