The economy was still facing an upward struggle and suggested that Obama had failed to deliver on promises made in his campaign. As many Americans still believe the economy was poor with 76% of voters in 2012 believing it was ‘not so good or poor.’ There are a number of key factors that attribute to his failure such as his 47% comment however there are other factors such as the strength of Obama’s campaign and Romney’s
This should not be seen as the problem of the government but the problem of the entire populace of America who are the taxpayers. As can be seen, the healthcare reform by president Obama will only cause deep problems to the people of America than the benefits it is expected to bring them. it seems the Obama administration was not committed to the people of America as they had made them belief in the run for his elections and this has only come to the fore recently and exposed his true image
The NEA’s 1999 budget was $98 million, which is considered amazing for many people, but actually, it represents just 36 cents per American. Comparing to Sweden, the government spending on arts is about $30 per capita (1). The question about supporting arts or not is related to the effects of arts to greater or lesser government’s grants; or some might say that supporting arts is just a matter of political ideology from the government. After 12 years, from 1999 to 2011, NEA’s budget increases more than $50 million to $154,690,000 (4), but still, that is not enough. Using tax dollar to support arts would be the solution; since compared to sale tickets or donations, tax money is more available and more consistent.
Personally, my family, my age, the media, and my education is what has been the most influential when it comes comes to political socialization. My families views on on government are extremely different on both sides because they are both unwilling to listen to the opposing argument. This has to do with mass media, the mirroring of public opinions on certain people that shape their opinion. My age has affected my views because of the the things that have been going on around me, for example the parkland shooting was not a personal experience but it could happen to anyone. I believe that it is sad that no one has taken legislative action which leads me to have a mistrust in the branches and how they function.
Some people say that the UN is a failure. We have set high expectations for the UN, which their budget cannot simply even hope to meet. Even though the UN has so little money, people want it to stop wars, feed the hungry, and fight terrible diseases, such as AIDS. No wonder some people consider the UN to be a failure! But what does the UN really do, and is the UN an organization that is worth our money, and our time?
Unfortunately, since the programs in the United States seem to be focused on alleviating some of the effects of relative poverty they have done a "lousy" job of teaching people how to stay out of poverty--finish school, don't have children unless you are married, get a job and good intentions are not enough. It's unclear how much good all these extensive programs have done since they are seldom reviewed by Congress; but they have spent an enormous amount of money--almost $717 billion in Federal funds plus $210 billion in state funds for $927 billion total in 2010--and increasing fast.  Unlike in Europe, Christian democratic
Michael Moore didn’t explain to the viewers that this is merely one out of many corporations that makes decisions solely to benefit themselves, regardless of how it affects other people. This is the nature of the business; this is capitalism. When a corporation can benefit by moving their factories that is what they are going to do, this is an example of Adam Smith’s invisible hand. If a business is successful, they will stay in an area until there is a better option. This happened with General Motors, where other countries required a lower minimum wage, allowing General Motors to collect more profit.
One common topic in many political conversations is government standardized health care. Government standardized health care is not what this country needs for so many different reasons. Just for starters, the general American public does not support the bill, but our governments legislation is still trying to force it on the American public. Also, more and more government officials are loosing support for standardized health care. Everywhere you go, there is evidence of our economy taking a down turn.
Unlike Democrats, Republicans want to cut back on social security or at least privatize it. In 2004 George W. Bush had vowed to push hard to remake social security. Additionally according to the New York Times Republicans and George W. Bush were worried about social security, however, they made little effort to overhaul this social entitlement Jackie Calmes). They showed very little interest in the future of social security. Instead they George W. Bush and Republicans in Congress paid little political price in the last four years of his presidency for the swing from budget surpluses to deficits.
Some people think that scientific discoveries aren’t important unless they affect society. Scientific literacy is about being curious and interested in the changes of the world. By people not opening up their interests more wider, Americans have lower percentages of scientific literacy. Although some people don’t believe that this is important, others disagree; and even though we may disagree with others, we all still have our own opinions. Everyone has their own opinions in the debate on weather or not scientific literacy is important.
