1) An historically low reduction in the rate of growth of health care costs leads to a rapid rate of decline in the deficit because government programs such as Medicare are no longer spending as much due to this decrease.
2) It would lower the United States deficit immensely from 3.4% to 1.6% through the use of Obama’s policies.
3) Obama values early learning so he tries to build on these programs by giving some of the discretionary budget money to early education programs because they are the foundation of our nation’s future.
4) I think his approval is a good one, not only does it reduce the U.S. deficit, but it also supports key components of our country such as the environment and education. However, a con to his budget is the fact that many seniors and elderly are missing out on the health care they truly deserve which is frustrating.
Creating federal order from barring federal contractors from retaliating against employees who discuss pay rates with each other. Also to close pay gap between genders. An executive order is regulations originating from the executive branch.
Limitations are that he has to move without congressional approval and Obama has to be able to demonstrate that he can drive the economy. People say he is over stepping his boundaries and that the whole idea is expensive.
Federal contractors worry that additional compensation data could be used to fuel wage related law suits. Such orders create a two tiered system in which rules apply to federal contractors but not other government employees.
The White House has resisted any gay rights advocates or any policies directed towards gays. They have stayed away because at too controversial and have low passing rate
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...
Gerrymandering is the process of dividing up a state into districts so as to give one political party a majority over the other during voting processes and house reapportionment. The districts sanctioned by the parties are often ridiculously shaped, not uniformed, and appear as if a two year old drew them out. Every ten years after the census, the house of representatives is reapportioned to reflect the state’s population. One strategy provided in the video for gerrymandering is having computers divide and choose districts based on geographical regions and population concentration. This would be difficult for incumbent because instead of picking their voters and knowing that they will support them, voters will be picking them, and by realigning districts they could potentially lose previous voters and face the chance of not getting re-elected because the voters now have different political views. Yes, often the two skew actual public results and feelings.
1.Based on this article I would say the media is looking for someone that has a small amount to none previous baggage, lower in age and is able to be a strong, influencal leader. Rather than having someone who is already current and is widely publicized, the media desires someone less exposed and unknown. Both parties have similar views in that they want a younger, stronger face to represent them for the future. Many candidates of both parties are older, and may encounter medical problems along with previous problems sprouting from past political decisions, which both parties are trying to avoid, such as Chris Christy and the bridge crisis along with Hilary and being unorganized.
2.Sabato is heavily focused on the platforms of the individual candidates, hints the pro’s and con’s list and having the candidates organized by tier, rather than just all bundled together. He gives both political and personal reasons on why a candidate would or would not make a good party candidate, this shows us that he is heavily involved, and has been scrutinizing these candidates for a while
3. permanent presidential campaigning is a theory of political science by Patrick Caddell that time a candidate or president spends campaigning is indistinguishable from the time actually spent governing, meaning that our government is less effective, and less likely to make efficient choices, but instead spend time working out campaign kinks and policies that will aid in their favor during reelection periods. Implications for our government include and popular vote society in which the president only makes choices favorable to most of the public, as well as only focusing on policies that play a major part of reelections rather than many other important issues.
4. no I do not think there is an advantage of being identified as an early leader of a parties campaign, because once your name is in the light the other party immediately targets you and will search to find every flaw every made. By being a late runner, the other party has less time to do so and will not be able to produce ‘dirt’ which could potentially eat away at your platform. After being in the limelight for several years before you election, the public will most likely be bored of seeing the candidate being publicized. Anyways, everyone loves an underdog.
Texas remains a Republican-leaning state because its white residents are becoming increasingly Republican and its large Hispanic population, though solidly Democratic, is less so than Hispanics nationally.
1. Democrats are hopeful for a part re-alignment in Texas because it would give them an opportunity to effectively run for Texas governor and give them an edge in upcoming political election since Texas is the nation's largest reliably Republican state. This concept is related to minority majority because as the Hispanic population grows in Texas, the white population, the majority, is outnumbered therefore allowing them to control political preference.
2. 27% of Hispanics living in Texas are republicans, 46% democrats and 20% independent while 61% of non Hispanic whites are republican, 26% democratic and 12% independent. Over all Texas is a Republican state due to the influence of the white majority.
3. Voter registration for Hispanics is extremely underrepresented in the Texas political system. Only 19% of Texas Hispanics are registered voters while 64% of non- Hispanic whites are registered voters. This deals with political participation because there is a trend of Hispanics typically, not participating in Texas political system.
4. Large sampling polls were obtained to ensure a low sampling error along with data from the other states and country as a whole to compare it to.
1. Roberts favors conservative decisions and has the ability to persuade the other, more liberal justices in favor of his super conservative ways. Through his conservative ways Roberts pleases Republicans by rejecting many of Obama’s cases with only a 39% passing rate, however many were surprised when Roberts upheld President Obama’s health care law.
2. Precedent is when the court determines a decision based on previous decision decided by the court. The Roberts court has used this when limiting campaign finance reform by ruling with a precedent.
3. He will have to appoint liberal judges or pass more conservative legislature that will have a better chance of being approved. And while legally he can’t bribe the Supreme Court, but he can use media to promote or demote the judge’s legality.
4. The swing vote on the court right now is Justice Kennedy because he is the justice who is most frequently in majority. While he is republican he does not always see everything in the republican perspective and likes to look at cases individually rather than the republicans ideology, making him unpredictable, and therefore the swing vote.
5. Yes I feel like the article was extremely biased in saying how wonderful the Roberts court was when in reality, he has many flaws that were not stated here in the article. If the article was non biased they would of include some more negative comments rather than all positive ones
1) The NRA is sending out emails directly to members to have them talk to senators to directly influence their vote. The surgeon general is not a position that has views on gun control and does not want excess positions having these views on gun controls.
2) The concerns for senators is that the NRA has influence on congressional votes, senators that are voting differently than NRA views will not receive support from both their party and district. The concern is greatest in Louisiana, Alaska, and Arkansas.
3) The president Is the one that suggests the appointment of certain positions like the surgeon general.
4) The white house needs to be more focused on finding a candidate that is more experienced and educated on medical issues rather than political and social views in order to avoid entanglement of the two. The white house learned that they had to approach nominations differently because they were getting turned down because they were not receiving enough party support because many leaders were balking out.
1) The founding fathers established the Electoral College in the constitution as a compromise between election of the President by a vote in Congress and election of the President by a popular vote of qualified citizens. They did this because in the beginning citizens were mainly uneducated in politics and politicians felt that they would not be able to make the best fit decision for the government. However, by removing people’s votes and having congress decide election winners, America would no longer have a democracy, and therefore this was the compromise made.
2) The common strategies of getting 270 votes is focusing campaigns on states so they can 'claim' that state, the more majority states a candidate has, the more votes they have in the electoral college. Safe states are one that the candidates just assume they will win because they have enough party support from those citizens. swing states are states that in which no single candidate or party has overwhelming support in securing that state's electoral college, and can 'swing' in either candidates favor. Swing states play a huge role in the Electoral College because they have no general trend and can lean either which way when it comes to the candidates.
3) If neither candidate receives a majority of electoral votes, then the House of Representatives will vote, but instead of each member having their own vote, each state has just one single vote. If the majority for vice president is also not reached by the Electoral College the same process will take place, but in the senate, with each senator having one single vote.
4) Even though gore got the majority of the votes, he was denied the presidency; this obviously isn’t fair, since he won the most popular votes.
5) I like the current system because it puts greater pressure on the individual parties and candidates to reach out to a whole state, rather than just a certain audience or group. I feel like by expanding their political views to encompass more people, the candidates will be creating better suited policies that will have a benefit a larger number of people rather than just a group like the wealthy, or middle class.
More Americans today are satisfied with where the nation stands on acceptance of gays and lesbians, federal taxes, and healthcare availability than were satisfied in 2001. But Americans' satisfaction with the economy has declined.
Yes, they do explain the change in public opinion, major events such as public shootings, 9/11, fluctuating economy, and our increasing involvement in the Middle East have all led to shifting public opinion in the last 13 years.Yes, both republicans and Democrats are consistent with typical party trends. Since the democrats are responsible for the affordable care act, they are of course more satisfied with its production. Similar, the republicans have a less percentage than democrats when it comes to level of the immigrants into the United States. Both the affordable care act and immigrant statistics follow party trend consistencies. However, I was surprised to see more than majority of democrats are satisfied with the level of military preparedness and strength, when normally they favor a smaller, less strong military then we are currently utilizing.The democrats are more likely favor public policies that promote the acceptance of gays and lesbians, improve race relations, promote alternative ‘green’ energy policies, promote environmental policies, and the right to abortion. While the republicans stand steady favoring lower taxes, strengthen military, maintaining global peace with strength, reducing the nation’s crime, promoting guns, and are most likely not to support helping poverty and unemployment as readily.It means that the data could be up to four percent off both ways off the data and could contain some inconstancies. It makes me interpret that the data is pretty much true to the given statistics, and I would not expect much of a change in difference if the real results were taken.
