A split Supreme Court Wednesday strikes down limits on the total amount of money an individual may spend on political candidates, parties and political action committees but keeps limits per candidate and per committee.
Once a great deliberative body, the Senate is now known for deadlock, dysfunction and political games. Will Tuesday's election help?
Sarah Solinger's insight:
The Senate has had the lowest approval rate in history. Formally known as one of the most productive bodies, it is now struggling to compromise and to get anything done. The only way I see Tuesday's election helping is if the spots that are open for election in the senate are filled by people that focus less on political standing and parties and more on the good of the country.
I don't think the Ukrainian situation has anything to do with the U.S. Why must we get involved? Sounds like something that should be handled by the Ukrainians and the Russians. The United States should mind it's own business and let the Ukrainians solve this problem for themselves.
With a Twitter-savvy president and their own ailing media companies, Lloyd Grove finds the boys in the briefing room more depressed than ever.
Sarah Solinger's insight:
1. Record the article's date. April 3, 2010
2. Define press corp. A group of journalists that cover news with the White House.
3. Explain "filterless presidency". Easy access to what's going on with the president and the way news gets to people "unfiltered"
4. Record the number of Obama's CURRENT social media followers -- Twitter & Facebook.
He has 42. 3 million Twitter followers and about 39 million Facebook followers .
5. In three sentences, state the authors concern.
The author feels as if reporters don't get credit anymore because of this days technology. Instead of a journalist having to report something, information can be sent directly out of the White House through this days media. The author explores the conflict between journalists and this days media and how journalists are now at a disadvantage.
6. I agree with the author in that journalists really are at a disadvantage with technology these days. They're become less of a necessity because it's so easy to get information out with out having to have it be reported. Information has become much more accessible with technological advances. The author seems concerned about this, while I disagree with that concern. I think more information to the public people, the better. The American people should know what's going on.
Video on msnbc.com: The age-old practice of politicians re-drawing Congressional districts to find friendly voters, or, gerrymandering, has allowed members of the House of Representatives from both sides of the aisle to stay in power regardless of...
This video talks about the practice of gerrymandering and how it's effected politics. Gerrymandering, the redrawing of districts to benefit a particular political party, has been highly criticized because of the tendency where politicians choose voters more often then voters choose politicians.
The Republican “Young Guns” are ready to rule, if they get the chance. Since they first got the name seven years ago, allies and enemies of Eric Cantor, Paul Ryan and Kevin McCarthy are now beginning to jockey to prepare for potential changes at the top of the Republican power structure in the House. Though publicly Speaker John Boehner...
This article provided some insight on where Republicans known as the "Young Guns" are going in their political careers. The writer organizes the article so that we read about each "Young Gun" individually, focusing on currently held power and potential problems the "Young Guns" might face. Personally, Paul Ryan seems to be the one with the most potential in politics, but I think that they all have potential, and that the House of Representatives will continue to be dominated by the Republicans.
