The US is more than 66 trillion dollars in debt, has more than 560,000 people that are homeless and poverty rates are up to 13.5% (43.1 million people). Other countries are like that too, and we help those countries with foreign aid, but we barely help our own country. These reasons are why we should ban foreign aid, the US is too much in debt and there are too many rich countries that we give foreign aid too. I believe that foreign aid is a negative aspect of this world and should be no longer allowed. One of the reasons why i believe that we should no longer have foreign aid is that the United States is too much in debt to afford foreign aid.
This demonstrates how the country’s economy suffered. It lost the territories where the sea ports stood. They were no longer able to trade as much as they did before. Because they couldn’t trade, they didn’t make money enough to keep its economy stable and
By not having, the budget or flexibility to continue to train for future operations places our national security in jeopardy. Placing Soldiers on the battlefield for a mission they have not received the proper training for, is unacceptable. Sequestration is the culprit and Congress can fix the issue by approving a realistic defense budget. By not maintaining, a robust modernization program will set the stage for conflicts in the
Speech Body Existence of Problem: The minimum wage rate is causing higher levels of poverty and unemployment. Evidence of Problem Existence: On a article Michael Saltsman wrote that President Obama has discussed raising the minimum wage rate to $9.00 per hour. He believes that "a higher minimum wage can reduce poverty without reducing employment. " On another article listed on The Washington Post Mike Konczal stated "Dube uses the latest in minimum-wage statistics and finds a negative relationship between the minimum wage and poverty. Specifically, raising the minimum wage 10 percent (say from $7.25 to near $8) would reduce the number of people living in poverty 2.4 percent."
Budget cuts will have drastic effects on the U.S. Navy to include overworked ships requiring extensive and expensive unplanned maintenance, extra-long deployments, and most importantly, losing quality Sailors due to a decrease in morale caused by overwhelming stress and days underway. Senior Enlisted Leaders must understand the effects that budget cuts will have on personnel and also understand the effects that this will have on projecting power and deterring conflict around the globe. This paper will identify the effects budget cuts have on U.S. Navy equipment and weapon systems, explain the driving and restraining forces behind the cuts, and provide a strategy to implement a solution. Problem The U.S. is approximately $18 trillion
Before the year ended, the Congress had to cut the budget of the Office of Economic Opportunity. This was a major setback in the War on Poverty, as their funds were, because of this, reduced by half a billion dollars. Another way in which King tried to solve the problem was by recommending a system that is being discussed in many Western countries, a guaranteed income. According to King, the government needed to make sure every American, whites included, had a reasonable income. In that same 1967 speech at the Southern Christian Leadership Conference presidential address, King states that we “must create full employment or we must create incomes”
The nation's financial aid system currently fails to provide an equal opportunity to everyone qualified. with high amounts of student loan debts has been shown to reduce a person's chances of owning a home, getting married, having children, and accumulating wealth. The earnings for a full time minimum wage worker is $15,080 at the federal minimum wage of $7.25. Full-time work means working 2,080 hours each year, which is 40 hours each week. A better educated population could result in smarter decision making at every level of society, which could lead to
For example, Amanda Ripley published an article called “Yes! It’s Time to Scale Back” and in it she states that “new bleachers can cost a half a million dollars” and maintaining a grass field could cost “more than $20,000 a year” (11). That article also said that when traveling for games, schools have to pay for buses, meals, hotels, not to mention painting the lines on fields ( Ripley 11). It stands to reason that sports are very costly and that they can use up a great deal of the school’s money. Clearly, money used on sports should be shifted to then be used for academic purposes.
A Lot of people say colleges are too expensive to attend especially people with low incomes i disagree. i do think they should be lower though. like for instance it 's going to cost me 60 thousand dollars to attend four years of college wich in my head isn 't that bad, but for others it might be too much. there are some geniuses in the world that can 't attend college so yes the cost should be lower .
Where the subcommittees may want a strong military to protect U.S. interests, the Armed Services want to keep or increase their budget, and the arms industry wants to sell their wares to make as much money as possible, all at the expense of the
POSITION PAPER ON MENTAL HEALTH STIGMA 1. The Air Force should do more to eradicate the stigma associated with airmen who seek help and receive mental health care. Mental health treatment has carried a significant stigma in the general public and among military members. The Department of Defense and the Air Force have taken significant steps to improve access to mental healthcare and remove the stigma associated with mental health treatment. Current Air Force mental health screening options are ineffective and inefficient.
A common view of politicians about Veterans Affairs and the money tied up in it is that the United States has put too much money into the well-being of veterans coming home from war. The United States is already in a spiralling debt crisis and currently the United States does not need any more debt on the shoulders of Americans. According to Forbes, “the federal government has accumulated $18.2 trillion of debt” (Patton). If the United States were to invest more money into Veteran Affairs, that would mean that money would have to be cut from other programs in the budget to prevent even more national debt. If money were to not be cut from other programs, the national debt would drastically increase or taxes would skyrocket.
