Who's an extortionist now, Mr. President? | | government shutdown |
President Obama pledged to end partisanship, but instead has exacerbated it. He recently accused House Republicans of being extortionists for opposing a raise in the debt ceiling and wanting to defund Obamacare.

Yasin Yasin's insight:

Even though America is trillions of dollars in debt, already, President Obama believes in raising the debt ceiling. It's infered that it would help the economy, but I don't beliebe that more spending would restore stability in out debts. I believe that we should probably focusing more on preserving funds and less spending.

This article talks about President Obama's condescending nature. Seven years ago when he was a Senator, Obama wanted to lower the debt ceiling, and now he is arguing that we need to expand it. This author of this article even brings up the question of shutting down the government and then "re-opening it" because it is going downhill, due to condescending acts like those made by Obama.

Wow...when I read this i laughed a little. I know the article is biased but i didnt really care once i read what it had to say. The articles states that when Obama was a senator and George W. Bush was president and there were talks of raising the debt ceiling, he was completely against it and said, "the fact that we have to raise the debt ceiling shows bad leadership." This excerpt is completely redundant because he switched his position around which shows his incompetence and indecisiveness.

It is obvious that this article is very biased. The author simply reverts back to Obama as a senator and quotes all his promises and suggestions that probably convinced the people to vote for him. Basically I see the author pointing out Obama as a leader who turned back on his words.

Yasin Yasin's insight:

There is only week remaining before the government shuts down and only one week remaining for the Democratic and Republican parties to come to a much anticipated agreement. The government seems to be struggling with coming to an agreement on how to pay bills and soon enough the American people are going to be suffering. Federal loans, student loans and other government aid would abruptly stop.

I don't believe we should shutdown the government. I think it would be too costly in expense and resources which would hurt the US more than it would help. What would happen once we realize we need a government but don't have the money nor resources to boot it back up? One week remains to decide, in any case.

In just one week, on October 1st, if the Republicans and Democrats cannot come to a compromise, the government will shut down.  This means there will be no national parks, no federal aid, no student loans, nothing.  The compromise is over whether or not we should raise the debt ceiling.  Personally, I don't think we should raise it, however I do think there has to be a better way than simply shutting down government.  I also believe that our two parties should be more willing to compromise.  It shouldn't always be one partie's way or the highway.

After reading this article, I just started to panic because money is everything. Imagine how crazy the nation will go once the government does shutdown. More violence and robbery because these people would do anything to keep their family stable. As a senior getting ready for college financial aid is crucial. Im afraid i won't be able to go to college because my parents never saved anything for my tutition.
