The unsuccessful attempt to pass a strong enough stimulus package in 2008, the battles to continue unemployment benefits, the debt ceiling that impacted fiscal austerity when government should be investing in the economy, this corruption in our politics has done huge amount of pain in the average, 99 % of hard working Americans. According to our House Majority Leader Eric Cantor “there is too much spending that the United States is doing”. The recent bill passed by President Obama “The American Jobs Act” gave us only a quick hopeful mindset of policy debate before it, too, vanished in the take-no-prisoners
At the party conference he referred to Major and Norman Lamont as being the Laurel and Hardy of British politics. This echoed his attacks on Major's government which he had made before the 1992 election while still shadow chancellor, most memorably when he attacked Conservative plans for cutting income tax to 20% as "irresponsible" and joked at a Labour Party rally in Sheffield that the Conservatives would have a box office disaster with "Honey, I Shrunk the Economy" - in reference to the recent Disney motion picture Honey, I Shrunk the Kids - mocking the recession which was plaguing the British economy at the
Democrats pushed for riskier mortgage lending, in an ef-fort to expand home ownership. But surely the bulk of the blame lies with the policy makers and regulators who were on duty while the housing bubble inflated and Wall Street went wild— the Bush administration and Alan Greenspan’s Federal Reserve Futures Modernization Act clearly did contribute to the current crisis. While a proponent of deregulation, I do believe that busi-nesses, like people, need rules to live by. If you give our child an inch they will take a mile. Peo-ple are people and while most are good we all know that there are those who will take advantage of others if they can.
People who make over $250,000 a year is considered rich. Warren Buffet, one of the richest men in the country, wants to pay more taxes and thinks that his super-rich friends should too. “While the poor and middle class fight for us in Afghanistan, and while most Americans struggle to make ends meet, we mega-rich continue to get our tax breaks,” Buffet wrote in a Sunday New York Times Op-ed (Bingham). Everyone that lives in America should have to pay taxes. Bill Gates, the richest man in America, agrees that taxes should be raised on the rich.
As the new Speaker of the House, John Boehner began making immediate changes to the chamber’s agenda. Along with creating new house rules, he put the Health Care Overhaul Repeal bill at the top of his priority list. The reasons behind his agenda setting were economy based. With regards to the bill, Boehner commented, “our spending has caught up with us, and our debt will soon eclipse the size of the economy.” Boehner is a member of the GOP and is a firm believer in the decrease or stagnation of taxes. 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.
Reagan made a model budget plan in 1981 by putting together legislation that would cut government expenditures by $40 billion, and would create a three year tax cut plan for each American and corporate income tax. It was the largest tax cut in history and it was meant to jump start the economy, but after 1981, the exact opposite happened and America fell into to the worst recession since the Great Depression. The next thing I’d like to talk about is How religion affected Politics in the late 70’s and early 80’s. Ronald Wilson Reagan was an Evangelical Christian, and answered all America’s problems with a “Christian” oriented answer. He believed that Communism was absolutely evil, and wanted to put a stop to it completely.
Emmanuel Martinez Freytag English 0310 11 November 8, 201 In the presidential debate both Romney and Obama used ethos, pathos and logos to try and get people’s empathy as much as they could, and when candidates start talking about taxes it wasn’t the exception. When they were ask on how would they lower tax rates for all tax brackets, they both start focusing on the middle class, because middle class people have a higher participation in elections and I think they’re more concerned in all the taxes they are paying in a way, and is the one they both want to get their attention. Romney used a lot of pathos by quoting that the middle class people has been crushed over the last four years, he wanted to create an emotion on people that Obama have not done nothing for them in his presidential mandate. And when he started talking about tax deductions he assure people he was going to bring taxes down and that they were going to have a tax break. On the other hand, Obama
* Lockheed Martin – Has contributed $5,000 since 2008. Statewide Feedback From a political perspective, though, one problem with the energy crunch is that it's a lot easier to talk about the problem than the solutions. For example, Alexander wants to encourage more public and private investment in research to find ways to make biofuels and solar power more cost-competitive with fossil fuels. And research that would make coal-burning power plants cleaner. And research that would address the issue of the best way to safely store waste from nuclear power plants.
He has made healthcare affordable as well as taking away discrimination when it comes to insurance companies. However, Romney believes that Obama creating the ‘Obamacare,’ with a trillion dollar federal take-over eventually be a disaster for the American people. He comments, “Obamacare was unpopular when passed, and remains unpopular today, because the American people recognize that a government takeover is the wrong approach.” This Suggests that many people support him on this policy and that he has a solution for them. He believes on handing the control back to the states where they will be able to regulate the healthcare system rather than Obama’s approach of governmentally running it. In argument to Romney I do believe Obamacare has worked to a certain degree with many Americans supporting how necessity healthcare such as contraception and monograms are now available free of charge, with work Obama could make the healthcare system work for
Essay #1: 2012 Presidential Election A dominant issue in the United States today is our economic hardship, or more specifically, the unemployment rate. A high unemployment rate due to a troubled economy can cause a whole array of issues. The largest of these is that there are now those who are unable to provide and care for their families, which is something that all Americans of all socioeconomic statuses should be able to do. There should not be those who are unable to find a meal or have a place to sleep at night, so of course at the forefront of the 2012 Presidential Election is the issue of how to relieve the stress of the failing economy on the American people. Although the unemployment rate is on the decline, it has been a slow and
