This article was comparing the POTUS and the tea party in the way that they "both disdain governing the way Madison intended."
The article seems to ring true for some people that may read it, but I disagree: why would President Obama agree to be the President if he didn't believe in the Madisonian system? This article is simply jibing at Obama, talking about how he's similar to a group of opposite political standing. I think it's childish and rude; instead of arguing about Obama and how he does nothing, how about you try and do something? It's like more people want to see Obama fail than America succeed.
This article is about ObamaCare from a conservative perspective, and saying how it's bad.
DeMint writes the article well, with logos and pathos woven into it. He uses factual percentages in order to back up his argument, which makes it seem more legitimate. Overall, a well written article.
I haven't read the actual legislation of the Affordable Care Act, but DeMint makes it sound costly. Although I am not conservative, with the way our economy is right now, I don't think we're able to handle the strain of just how much the Affordable Care Act would cost.
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 is simply about gerrymandering and what it has done to our government.
What is said in this video is very on point; both Democrats and Republicans are good at drawing districts when they can in order to obtain a majority vote. No single party can take all the blame. What was also very interesting was the certian districts that have been dubbed certain animals. The pterodactyl with a broken wing was a winner.
According to a report from the US Department of Health and Human Services released today, about 6.4 million Americans will be able to buy health insurance for $100 or less per month using the Affordable Care Act’s Health Insurance Marketplace.
This article is about how the Affordable Healthcare Act will make healthcare more affordable to about 6.4 million Americans. Some will be able to pay under $100 monthly for healthcare. Up to 78% of uninsured people in the US could qualify for Medicaid if it is expanded to all 50 states.
I think this could be very good for America, if people were able to pay under $100 a month for healthcare. I dont think it would have a huge effect, being only 6.4 million people. But something is better than nothing, I suppose; many Americans are worried about paying a lot for healthcare, and this might placate some people. Hopefully this will actually be possible to execute, not simply an idea that we cannot acheive.
I very much agree with that Friedman is trying to say; we have to have some way of keeping control after we (might) take Assad out of power somehow. I'm glad someone is realizing that it is "all the same war," and we need to do something to prevent the total collapse of the government if Assad was taken out somehow.
Denis McDonough, in an interview on ABC's 'This Week' said he was 'outraged' at Ted Cruz's comments that our forces would be serving as 'Al Qaeda's air force.' The interview was immediately followed by one with Sen.
I'm glad we're leaning towards no boots on the ground. Something needs to be done, for the sake of those people who were gassed to death. As long as our troops aren't in the line of fire; if we have information about where Syrian civilians are versus their military, and how we can avoid hurting them accidentally, we should definitely do something to help the Syrian people who are in need.
This article is about the media outlets catering to people with certain mindsets, ie liberals/conservatives.
The overall article is written well, with logos about what exactly is said on the different channels on TV and talk shows that specifically cater to conservatives. The media outlets are causing political polarization; they want to attract audiences, so they give the people what they want. It's basic supply and demand.
Nobody is being helped by the gerrymandering that's happening in the media; everyone is in their own metaphorical bubbles where they only hear what they want to hear. This makes it hard for people to hear the clear cut truth from accurate sources. If everyone has selective hearing, nothing will get done.
Video on msnbc.com: NBC’s Kate Snow spoke with CNBC’s Andrew Ross Sorkin about the debt ceiling and what happens if Congress fails to raise that limit so the government can borrow more money to pay its bills...
This video is about the debt ceiling and what happens if we reach it, and also what happens if we default on our debt.
I think it's true, what they talk about in this video. Many, if not most, Americans are confused about the debt ceiling and what it precisely means. Also, what happens if we reach that ceiling. So much rumor and blame has been floating around, what with the government shut down. Many Americans simply don't know what to believe. Sorkin explains it clearly and concisely: either we give up some stuff, or some stuff gives up on us.
If Congress can't pass a bill to fund the government by midnight of Sept. 30, large parts of the federal government will shut down. Agencies that provide entitlements such as social security, Medicare and Medicaid will keep providing those benefits.
This article is about the possible government shutdown that might happen if Congress doesn't pass a bill about finance options by midnight Sept. 30th. Some institutions will stay open/keep working, such as Medicare and Medicaid, but others would shut down completely, such as the Securities Exchange Comission, and trash pickup in Washington DC.
I really do hope that Congress can come to an agreement by midnight Sept. 30th. The mayor of DC did say that they have contigency plans in place if the government does shut down, but I personally think that it should never come to that. Congress needs to be decisive. With the political parties fighting as it is, the people who aren't involved with the bill decision are affected by it. They have to be ready to make a decision in order to maintain peace throughout the nation.
Contradicting President Obama’s assertion, Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas said this morning on “This Week” that the president does not have the authority to order a military strike on Syria without Congressional approval.
Ted Cruz is using the slippery slope fallacy: "If we do this, then this will happen! And this! And this! AND THIS!" He's getting the American public hyped about the idea that we 'definitely' will go to war with Russia and China as a direct result of intervening in Syria. This isn't to say that I think we should send our troops into Syria, but he's only making the American public more scared about what will come of intervening (if we do). What we need right now is to be calmed, not scared into refusing help to people in need.
