Presidents become the spokesperson for bills like the Gun Show Background Check Act and promote them with persuasive speeches and events, urging Americans to exert pressure on law makers. After the defeat of the gun control bill, President Obama somberly stated, “All in all, this is a pretty shameful day for Washington…The American people are trying to figure out—how can something that has a 90 percent support not happen?” (McAuliff)
But recently gerrymandering has become more controversial because people feel that it has taken away their rights as a voter and it swings the votes to one side by a big percentage. Current cases are before the courts to decide if gerrymandering is legal. Some states have been discussing whether it should still be allowed during elections. “Many efforts are underway to remedy this political
In “The Bernie Bomb” by Kimberley Strassel, critical, mocking tones emphasize Strassel’s feelings towards Bernie Sanders’ inability to become the President of the United States. Bernie Sanders gave quite a performance at the first Democratic debate of the year. Strassel shares her thoughts on the nature of his responses to important issues during the debate by concluding that his followers should regret making donations to his campaign seeing that he really is not in it to win. Her witty critiques indicate her strong feelings that donating to Sanders’ campaign in hopes that he will become President, is truly not worth the money. Strassel’s diction heightens the uncertainty and unprofessional manner behind Sanders’ attempt at trying to be elected as President, which leads his supporters to doubt their contribution to his campaign.
I am a social work student at Frostburg State University and I have completed a policy analysis on the defunding of Planned Parenthood. I oppose defunding of Planned Parent because I believe it serves a good purpose in communities. Defunding of Planned Parenthood would remove all federal funding and allow states to take away state funding from them. Without the 500 million dollar yearly funding that Planned Parenthood receives they will have to shut down a numerous amount of their clinics and many of the nine million clients will not have anywhere to go to for preventive and family planning services. In 2012, Texas stopped funding Planned Parenthood with state aid.
Martin O’Malley had one clear chance to make waves within the Democratic National Committee, and he seized it, delivering a fiery speech Friday that condemned his party’s leadership for what he called a process “rigged” to help Hillary Rodham Clinton — namely, curtailing the number of presidential primary debates. Accusing party leaders of trying to keep Democratic ideas hidden as the Republican presidential candidates spew “racist hate” from their debate lecterns, Mr. O’Malley, the former Maryland governor and mayor of Baltimore, questioned the decision to hold “four debates and four debates only” before the first four states finish voting. “This is totally unprecedented in our party’s history,” Mr. O’Malley said. “This sort of rigged process has never been attempted before. Whose decree is it
Planned Parent Hood Funding Planned Parent Hood is funded by multiple different ways, by donations, money that they profit off from there services and federal tax dollars. There has always been an argument between are politicians rather there should be a cut in government funding towards Planned Parenthood and many Americans would argue the fact that rather their tax payer money should or shouldn’t fund Planned Parent, personally I think it should be founded by federal tax dollars. But, what really is Planned Parenthood, and what are American tax payers’ money paying for? Many people would argue the fact that tax payers’ money should not fund Planned Parenthood. They think it’s against their religion or morals to have abortions; they believe
Like a strategy straight out of Sun Tzu 's Art Of War, Hillary Clinton is using Donald Trump 's own party against him in a brutal new campaign ad that shows even the majority of Republicans find Trump distasteful and potentially disastrous for America. This week, Donald Trump became the GOP 's presumptive presidential nominee after an embarrassing thrashing in Indiana finally caused Evangelical nut-bar Ted Cruz to accept defeat and drop out of the race, followed shortly by Ohio Governor John Kasich. With Trump the last man standing on the Republican ticket, and Clinton being the odds-on favorite for the Democrats, things are about to get real nasty along the campaign trail as both candidates gear up for the general election.

I predict that in the Democratic Party I believe that Bernie Sanders will not make and that Hillary Clinton will win in the Democratic Party. In the Republican Party I believe that the next person to drop out is John Kasich. The next person that I think is going to drop out is Ted Cruz. That would leave Hillary Clinton in the Democratic Party and Donald Trump in the Republican Party. In the Republican Party there is currently three people running for President because Marco Rubio has dropped out of the election.
So because you get to stop paying for insurance you don’t get to stop paying taxes used for the medicines needed. The second problem is, “In the United Kingdom, which has a right to health care, a 2002 study by the British National Health Service found that it was ‘critically short of doctors and nurses’”states procon.org. They say possible doctors will not want to be doctors, because many doctors’ pay will drop a lot with the universal healthcare system. Procon.org states that, “A right to health care could lower the quality and availability of disease screening and treatment.” This would be because with free healthcare hospitals and other medical facilities income would be cut short and they may not be able to afford the most helpful or the newest technology or research. All these websites show that free healthcare in America wouldn’t really be free, it showed that America shouldn’t get free healthcare because it would mess with our government 's tax
According to the WHO, there are an estimated 40-50 million abortions every year around the globe. The dictionary definition for abortion is ‘the deliberate termination of a human pregnancy’, and people usually very absolutist about their stances regarding this topic. The two sides of the argument are those who are pro-choice or pro-life. The pro-choice side argue that it is the free will of the parent/s to decide on how to handle the pregnancy as unplanned pregnancies could mean a detrimental life for both the parent/s and the baby as the parent/s may not have the resources to support and take care of the baby, or are not ready for such big change and responsibility. On the other hand, the pro-life side argue that life begins at conception
