“As a part of the 1993 Economic Plan, President Clinton cut taxes on fifteen million low-income families and made tax cuts available to ninety percent of small businesses, while raising taxes on just 1.2 percent of the wealthiest people (whitehouse.gov, 2013). Along with this President Clinton also signed the largest deficit reduction plan. This resulted in over six-hundred
He was elected to the senate after serving two years as the first House of Representatives member from Tennessee, and resigned after just one year. In the War of 1812, Jackson commanded American forces in the battle of New Orleans, a massive victory that took place weeks after the treaty had been signed, ending the war.

While both Lincoln and Washington led the Untied States during war, Jefferson however led the major develpoment of our Country. Jefferson contributed greatly in the develpoment of our democratic government. His service of 50 years for our country was much longer than washington 's or Lincoln 's. He also pushed for expansion out west and supported explorations. Jefferson is was clearly the strongest not on the battlefield, but in developing the United States with the freedoms we have today.
As Robert Smith, a correspondent for NPR’s Planet Money, said, he was a man who hated debt. The country had fifty-eight million dollars in debt for all the states, when he came into office in 1829. He wasn’t thinking if they should pay it off but how quickly to do it. The country was only debt free for exactly one year, it went back into debt when Andrew’s presidency was over to Martin Van Buren. Being debt free allows for a better money policy which Andrew Jackson is the only example of in United States history, this is worth remaining on the twenty dollar
Ulysses S. Grant was a man of true courage although he faced alcohol addiction and business failure, he skillfully led the North to victory and helped give African Americans several rights and freedoms. Ulysses S. Grant was born on April 27, 1822 in Point Pleasant, Ohio to Jesse Grant, a tanner, and Hannah Grant, a homemaker (Broadwater 4). At seventeen, Grant was accepted into West Point, the college of choice of his father. Grant went to West Point, New York and soon began his residency. He graduated in four years, in the bottom half of his class (Worldbook Online).
The Federalist party’s goals had prevailed in American politics by 1809 by reducing national debt and doubling the size of the United States. Thomas Jefferson was elected President in 1800, defeating the Federalist party. Jefferson’s election, also known as the “Revolution of 1800” marked the first peaceful transfer of power from one political party to another. Under the Jefferson administration, Alexander Hamilton’s excise tax was removed, and the budget was balanced. Jefferson also reduced the army and navy in an attempt to uphold Washington’s strong neutrality policy.
There's been a fair amount of president's in the United States. I remember when I was younger and i found out there'd been a lot of presidents, I almost immediately asked, "who was the strongest?" I soon found out who that was in the third grade when I learned all about Abraham Lincoln. I think Abraham Lincoln was America's strongest president because he perservered through a civil war, he repaired the country afterwards and brought us back together again as a nation, and he abolished slavery in the United States. Imagine you'd just become the principle of a high school.
He also got rid of the Louisiana civil service system, but state agencies that still worked with federal funds continued operating and taxes on gas, beer, and retail purchases increased. Earl Long served his third term from 1956 to 1960. Long was a democrat, and this was expressively noted with the changes he made during his third term as governor. During this time, he put into effect a free lunch program in schools, made salaries for black teachers the same as white teachers, and dealt with an anti-black
Donald C. Lord author of “The Presidential Studies Quarterly” argues that “Kennedy and the Justice department under Attorney Robert and Burke Marshall accomplished more for civil rights in three years than all other previous administrations combined.” , i.e. Despite Eisenhower’s attempt to protect African American right to vote it was found that 1.5 million out of 6 million African-Americans voted in the south because of restrictions , strengthening the belief that he did provide his power as a President to pass the Bill of 1964. His last year as leader was of crucial importance for the movement as it was the year when he realized that it was becoming a bigger problem and that something needed to be
There’s only an up or down: man’s old --old aged dream, the ultimate in individual freedom consistent with law and order, or down to the ant heap of totalitarianism.” This shows his ethics and the passion he has when he presents his speech. Reagan stated,”Today, 37 cents out of every dollar earned in the country is the tax collector’s share,” He also included,”We’ve raised our debt limit three times in the last twelve months, and now our national debt is one and a half times bigger than all the combined debts of all the nations of the world.” Reagan shows us that he knows about the numbers and logistics of our nation which is logos. Since he knows specific numbers, more people will listen to what he is trying to
The reason for my choice of Thomas Jefferson would be because of the many accomplishments that he had over the years of presidency. Thomas was the third leading president of the United States. He was a very persuasive figure in America’s early development. One of the biggest accomplishments during his years as president was the purchase of the Louisiana territory from France for fifteen million dollars in 1803. This territory was consisted of lands extending between the Mississippi
The two term wasn’t intended to bringing limitation to future Presidents. George Washington was getting old and he felt that only serving two four year terms was very sufficient enough to serve as a President. But the two term became one of his precedents due to him turning down his third term and retiring from being our countries President. After Washington’s death there has been several President that attempted to run for a third term but was unsuccessful and their names are Ulysses Grant, Grover Cleveland, Theodore Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson. The only successful President that made history for serving over two term was Franklin D Roosevelt, he won his third term in 1940, and then in 1944 running for his fourth term as President.
