Obama thinks that the afordable care act is more than just a website.This reform is upsetting insurance company,they are already making changes with their individual policies because they are non-complaint with the obama care. The fact that it's more than a website should scare people.

Maddy Folkerts's curator insight, October 25, 2013 9:21 PM

I don't agree with this article that the website problems means all of ObamaCare will be a failure. It's more of a technical issue than an issue with the whole plan of the policy. This article was extremely biased and touched on irrelevant problems rather than arguing the actual important, debatable topics.

Paulina Ho's curator insight, December 19, 2013 7:47 PM

Obama encourages people to apply for benefits over phone. The article itself is very discriminating and has a very derogetory tone. ObamaCare's real goal is to focus over health care. The disadvantage of ObamaCare is that the enrolled people will mainly be the most expensive patients. Even in the video, obama says that the website is slow and there are problems, but the intentions are good. Some people are going to be paying higher prices than they usually do.

Obama says that we have raised the debt ceiling 'over 100 times', but most of the time, debt only increases.  Does he not understand that?  He says that raising the debt ceiling is not increasing debt, but there is a much greater chance in increasing debt from raising the ceiling.  I believe we would be much better suited to use the amount of debates we're currently using on the debt ceiling to use on how to eliminate our debt all together.  Why talk about ways to spend more when we should talk about ways to spend less?

Brian Cohen's curator insight, September 25, 2013 3:52 PM

Does anybody understand what Obama is saying about the debt cieling? Even though it's been done over 100 times does not necessarily mean that it works. It has probably been used so many times because it gives the government more freedom to go further in debt instead of taking responsibility for the high debt and finding a solution for it. And I will just come out and say it, President Obama could not have been more wrong when he said that raising the debt ceiling doesn't raise the debt. The government is going to take advantage of the extra "leeway" given to them if the ceiling is increased. 

Jalyssa Martinez's curator insight, September 26, 2013 2:10 AM

Obama, you can keep saying that raising the debt ceiling does not mean we're increasing in debt, and if we're not increasing ind ebt, why must the debt celing limit keep rising?

George's curator insight, September 11, 2013 3:17 AM

It's quite interesting seeing how Obama's address is compared to other presidential addresses all dealing with a request to go to war. Obama is faced with the challenge of persuading a country that's tired of fighting wars to rise up once again to act as the world's policemen. 

Tianna Kelly's curator insight, December 1, 2013 9:13 PM

This poll does not surprise me in the least; in fact, I am among the majority who oppose United States military action in Syria. The United States has its own internal issues to attend to, and spending money and resources on unnecessary actions can only further our troubles.

A lot of Syria's military power is concentrated to the West. This makes Syria easy to flank and I'm sure Assad knows this and the U.S. could easily take down Syria but now that Russia's involved it seems like military action will not be necessary

Victor Osorto's comment, September 21, 2013 7:10 PM
The idea of Obama not deploying American Feet on Syrian Soil, but now the focus of attention for our attacks will be the Navy, who as stated in this article, has excellent history in Naval Combat. This just might U.S. the upper-hand if given the go to combat Syria. But Syria's response of equipping war machines in the citizen's villages could trigger Obama on to where to specifically attack and not be guilty for killing innocent lives. U.S has potential to win the war against Syria, but we aren't sure on what Russia has in support for Syria. Although, our Navy has extraordinary missiles, U.S Navy must make sure they make pin-point targets or else they could be facing more drastic measures.
Linh Phan's comment, September 23, 2013 7:14 PM
The Syrian military assets is not the problem. Its out of date and poorly operated, so its not going to be a problem for US attacks because we use missile launches from warships and airplanes. We don't even need to go into Syrian airspace.

Chris Buenaseda's curator insight, November 4, 2013 7:10 PM

Both are similar in that they are really hard to compromise with. The framers of the government have aimed for the structure of the govt. to balnce out the power. I don't see any similarities between the two other than their characteristics when it comes to compromise.

Paulina Ho's curator insight, December 19, 2013 6:26 PM

I strongly agree  that politicians these days are so blinded by their parties' goals that they are unable to make necessary compromises that are better for the country. I like the way that the writer compares the Tea Party with Obama. He also says that because of this unwillingness to compromise, Obama has too much power.

Adriana Cruz's curator insight, January 18, 2014 5:02 PM

The article says that both Obama and the Tea Party don't want to go through the process of compromising that Madison had planned out. They're both impatient and arent willing to work together. I think an issue like this should be compromised, They need to come up with a solution together and figure out what to do. Obama does want the legislative branch to touch Obamacare. In my opinion, thats not very democratic or fair. The legislative branch represents the US citizens. we elect representatives in the legislative branch so we can have a voice. With Obama saying he doesn''t want congess to touch it seems like he doesn't really care about our opinion.

Republican House sets up government shut down with budget that defunds Obamacare

The Republican-led U.S. House of Representatives on Friday approved an budget measure that would strip all funding from the Affordable Care Act — also known as Obamacare — or shut down the federal government.

Pierre Phillips's comment, September 24, 2013 11:23 PM
the house of rep came to a decision to shut down obama care. the majority in the house voted to shut it down. now they await for the senate to vote whether to shut it down or not which is mostly democratic. i believe the senate will not shutdown obamacare and even if it was approved the white house said they would veto the ratification either way which will lead to a government shut down. as a us citizen that is not really up to date with current events reading this shows me that the republicans believe so strongly in shutting down obamacare that they are willing to cause a government shutdown. this is an uphill battle for republicans.
Taylor Marberry's curator insight, September 24, 2013 11:55 PM

The Republicans are wanting a stripping for the funding of the Obamacare act. If this doesnt't occur, they are threatening for a shut down of the government on September 30th. I'm not sure if the Republicans are making the wisest decision, because I am not so sure that shutting the government down will aid in their cause. It's questionable if the Senate can get the votes necessary, and it will be interesting to see if some Senate Republicans cross their parties' line

Esther Chang's curator insight, September 25, 2013 1:54 AM

The Republicans want to shut down the funding of Obamacare to protect the economy. If the bill to shutdown the Obamacare was passed by senate, the White House swore to veto it but it would proceed to shut down in ten days, if it was passed by Senate. The Democarts can avoid a shutdown if they gained 60 votes to get rid of the bill. If the Obamacare is hurting our economy, then I belive that we should get rid of the Obamacare and try a different alternative. Going as far as shuting down the government is too far and I believe that there is another alternative, I'm just not smart enough to think of one. But I honestly think that a government shutdown wont happen since they would probably have to get it approved by the Senate.

Really enjoyed this video in the sense that it gave me more insight to what's going on and different points of view. Several points like the fact that innocent civilians will die on our watch because of the airstrike was one i especially liked because it made me think more deeply into why we shouldnt intervene. It's clear that this is a huge predicament that even the Round table finds difficult to choose a side in the sense that as a nation we are stuck on deciding whether to be or not to be the "world's policemen."

Daniel Guo's curator insight, September 11, 2013 11:49 PM

I think that Newt Gingrich brings up good points about why it's hard for the public to support an airstrike on Syria. I think that this dicussion is a fair representation of the current public opinion on the matter- nobody wants to directly support a strike; there is no clear right answer.

Rachel Murphy's curator insight, October 2, 2013 8:13 PM

All of the politicians here are hesitant about military strikes in Syria. because they aren't sure about the effect that it would cause. Newt Gingrich makes some excellent points about the importance of communication. I believe some action needs to be taken in Syria, but a strike would only unleash more problems for us. Syria's allies are too powerful.
