  • Balanced Budget - 1,815 words
    Balanced Budget Balanced Budget Thomas Jefferson stated, I place economy among the first and most important virtues, and public debt as the greatest of dangers. To preserve our independence, we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt (Grinsburg 1). This quote illustrates the importance of maintaining a balanced budget; therefore, it is necessary to stand firmly resolved that the government should balance its budget. Three main arguments uphold this premise. They are as follows: 1. It is feasible for the government to balance the budget, 2. A budget deficit harms the United States through creating a trade deficit and increasing the national debt, 3. A balanced budget would benefit ...

The only times a budget deficit existed during these first 150 years were in times of war or other catastrophic events.

  • Americas Great Depression - 1,607 words
    America's Great Depression America's Great Depression by Chima Lonstone The Great Depression is probably one of the most misunderstood events in American history.

  • Congress In Crisis - 1,266 words
    Congress in crisis The United States Congress is not in any crisis from a lack of power, and indeed since the deteriorating power of the presidency has prevented imperial Presidents, Congress has made Presidents seem less imperial than impotent. To assess the power and effectiveness of Congress, one must look at the four major roles that Congress plays in the United States. Although inevitably checked and balanced, there is no question of the founding fathers intent, when framing the constitution, they had aimed to enumerate the powers of Congress so as to create a dominant branch of government. The United States, similar to Britain is a representative democracy, ergo the name of the Lower H ...

Only 14 percent of Medicaid beneficiaries report dissatisfaction with the health care services they received, compared to 30 percent for the uninsured and 13 percent for those with private insurance. Unlike Medicare and private insurance policies, Medicaid generally does not require beneficiaries to pay premiums, deductibles, co-payments, or other out-of-pocket (so-called cost-sharing) fees that might discourage them from seeking treatment that they need. Because their incomes are so low, such charges would discourage many from visiting doctors or other health care providers. Most state Medicaid programs have made progress i ...

  • How Money Is Used, Raised, And Wasted In Washington - 1,297 words
    How money is used, raised, and wasted in Washington Government Spending How money is used, raised, and wasted in Washington As many Federal departments and agencies lurch into an era of running without funds, the leaders of both parties of Congress are spending less and less time searching for a compromise to balance the budget, and more and more time deciding how to use it to their advantage on the campaign trail. Meanwhile money is easily borrowed to pay for government overhead. In an attempt to change this, on June 29, Congress voted in favor of HConRes67 that called for a 7 year plan to balance the Federal Budget by the year 2002 (Hager 1899). This would be done by incorporating $894 bil ...

The plan that Clinton has presented is not only a budget resolution in the form of a campaign document, but also proof of how far the Republicans have moved him to compromise since the they took control of Congress. Most important, it does not readily translate into regular accounting principles used for government programming. This years White House budget was a 2,196 page document that the GOP struck down immediately for not cutting taxes enough and neglecting to downsize the government (Hagar 752). "There is little or no change at all in this budget," said Pete Domenici (Senate Budget Committee Chairman), talking of Cli ...

    John Steinbeck - the Author and his Times He didn't know it at the time, but John Steinbeck started getting ready to write The Grapes of Wrath when he was a small boy in California. Much of what he saw and heard while growing up found its way into the novel. On weekends his father took John and his three sisters on long drives out into the broad and beautiful valleys south of Salinas, the town where John was born in 1902. John passed vast orchards, and endless fields green with lettuce and barley. He observed the workers and the run-down shacks in which they lived. And he saw, even before he was old enough to wear long pants, that the farmhands' lives differed from his own. Although the Stei ...

  • Political Parties - 1,283 words
    Political Parties Since the last of the Whig party left office in 1852, the American political system has been primarily a two party system. The Democrats and the Republicans have been the two parties fighting for the Presidency since that time.

Would our country be run as effectively if the presence of political parties was no longer a factor? It is the opinion of the authors that the U.S. Government would exist without political parties and may, in fact be stronger. The concept of political parties seems to go against what it ...
