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.

Kurt Vonnegut was born on November 11, 1922 in Indianapolis, Indiana. He was raised in Indianapolis and lived there until he graduated high school and then he moved to New York so he could attend the Ivy League school Cornell University. At Cornell he beat tough competitors for a place at the school’s newspaper, The Cornell Sun, where he worked as a writer and then as an editor. However, Vonnegut did not succeed in school and he dropped out in 1943 to enlist in the Military which is very surprising considering he was a pacifist.

First of all, statistically speaking, “The home-educated typically score 15 to 30 percentile points above public-school students on standardized academic achievement tests”(“Research Facts on Homeschooling”). This includes tests such as the SAT, PSAT, ACT, and annual benchmark tests. Because of this reason, many colleges actively seek homeschooled students. Top colleges are scouting homeschoolers, and its due to the fact that homeschoolers “go to and succeed at college at an equal or higher rate than the general population”(“Research Facts on Homeschooling”). Also, studies have proved that “Homeschool freshmen in their first semester at college average a 3.37 GPA to the 3.08 of other freshmen, and continue to keep their advantage even into senior year with 3.46 versus 3.16”(“The Homeschooler’s Guide to Getting into College”).
As a young intelligent man, he was expected to earn a degree from a respectable University and then begin earning money for his family. “After sex and a half years of legal maneuvers and delay tactics, Horace Ward would finally have his day in court.” Fighting for over six years just to get a date in court to have a chance at enrolling eventually became too much for Ward. So after dedicating years to trying to get into UGA he eventually enrolled in Northwestern University in order to obtain his Law Degree. “Whenever I was on military leave, I met with my legal advisors, I made it clear to them that I didn’t think I could invest more than one more year in the UGA case. Age was catching up with me, and I was ready to move on.” Time affects the younger generation more than the older generation.
1 . Introduction On February 24, 2009 President Barack Obama set the ambitious goal that the United States “should once again have the highest proportion of college graduates in the world by the year 2020” (U.S. Department of Education (!!!)). With the US currently only ranked 12th in the world in four-year degree attainment among 25-34-year olds this would require at least eight million more young adults to earn a postsecondary degree by 2020 (The White House; U.S. Department of Education (!!!)). The White House has announced that in order to achieve this goal “President Obama and his Administration are working to make college more accessible, affordable, and attainable for all American families”.
