For example, many people think that immigrants reduce the job opportunities and wages for the low skilled American citizens. In addition, they conclude that the people that arrive to the US illegally are not the best people from their country. When I read pro-immigrant arguments, I thought that immigrants are really important to this country; in fact, I agreed with Bernie with the idea that immigrant have a positive impact in the American economy; however, after I read the anti-immigration arguments, my thinking on this issue had changed a little bit in this way: immigration help in our economy in the way for consuming goods or services; however, sometimes they can reduce job opportunities for US
Converting to a flat tax system would mean everybody would give an equal percentage of their annual income earned for taxes. Now as this seems fair, is it really though? People who have lower incomes would obviously have a lot less money left over after the flat tax was collected. Another disadvantage of flat tax would be the loss of jobs. The IRS would be hit hard considering their line of work would be gone if the United States shifted to a flat tax system (Gordon
Nearly everything is outsourced from this country, we are 100 percent dependent on other countries to produce our items. Sure, we can blame China, we can blame the 3rd world, but the real problem is the corporations. It is big corporations that do not care about where the product is coming from but about maximizing profits as much as possible. Even companies that produce quality products are outsourcing to save money because it appeals to the shareholders, which all makes sense to a business person. There are some pros to globalization as Mike Collins states that, "supporters of globalization argue that it has the potential to make this world a better place to live in and solve some of the deep-seated problems like unemployment and poverty."
Income Inequality Income Inequality or “wage gap” is a big topic for freedom fighters and liberals for the simple fact that it isn’t equal for everyone. Because the wage gap is so prominent it's one of the biggest “facts” that discrimination is still apart of everyday American society. The wage gap from these radical interest groups think the economy is get a dollar take a dollar instead of a free flow economy. This misguided idea of the economy is absolutely not true and isn’t at the fault of the Government, but the people.
The Democrats believe there should be only cuts for middle and low-income families, but believe they should be taxed at a higher rate on corporations and wealthy individuals. The Republicans believe there should be tax cuts for everyone, both corporations and people of all income levels. “The Republicans passed the Bankruptcy Bill favoring credit card businesses over Americans whose budgets are destroyed by job loss or medical bills” (Freeman 329). In their turn, the Democrats have passed the Welfare Reform Act, cutting benefits for the poorest layers of the American population.

Immigrants do not only help the economy by increasing the employment rate, they also increase taxpayers that benefits the US economy positively. There are a lot of misconceptions about undocumented immigrants and paying taxes. Many believe that since they are unauthorized immigrants they do not pay taxes. But in reality, many undocumented immigrants do pay taxes just like everyone else. They may not have a legal document that allows them to be in this country, but they find ways to pay for their taxes such as a Fake Social Security Numbers (SSN) or Individual Tax Identification numbers (ITIN)
This then, makes possible for the voters to really know the intentions of the candidates. For instance, during the election of 2012 both political parties focused on negative ads exposing the flaws of their counterparts. Barack Obama’s campaign argued that the president had taken action to rescue the economy and turn it in the right direction, while Mitt Romney’s campaign argued that the recovery was not happening fast enough. The Obama campaign focused on making the people see Mitt Romney as multi-millionaire whose plans favored the rich over the middle class. One of the ads that better accomplished Obama’s campaign focus was “47 Percent,” where they show a video recording of Romney saying that he did not care about 47% of the population, who were predestined to vote for Obama.
The Koch Brothers are trying to buy America. They not only funnel money through their phony Americans for Prosperity, they funnel money into all kinds of organizations to do the same thing that they are doing. I honestly do not believe America is for sale. But as soon as these two power-drunk billionaires are called out, they say, “It’s free speech, what’s wrong?”
As the United States gets ready to enter into another election year, each party is gearing up and raising money for their political campaigns. Numerous polls will take place and questions as well as platforms will come together in an effort to get the publics endorsement and hopefully their vote. It is important to understand why money and polls play a vital role in the American political system. It is equally important to look at certain aspects of issues that have plagued Congress such as the government shutdown and the debt ceiling crisis and how each of these aspects shape the political arena and what needs to be done in the future to preserve our way of life.
