Comments Off on Budgetary Stupidity

A this point in time, things are crazy from a governmental and economic standpoint. As news about budget crises hit, the stock market dove and resurfaced in extreme ways, and the population as a whole is frustrated. No one is sure about what to do or what to expect.

The recent budget fiasco on Capitol Hill has illuminated one key concept that is glaringly obvious at this point. this current government does not work.

The colossal stupidity and close mindedness of the governing body is something that is truly pathetic, and needs to be overturned. One can expect the usual bickering and partisanship, but something on this scale which could have repercussions for many years should have been handled better. It is time for a change, and it needs to be something that the citizens of this country stand up for in order to avoid repeating such incidents.

Boehner: GOP May Act Alone to Address Debt

Comments Off on Boehner: GOP May Act Alone to Address Debt

On Monday, House Speaker John Boehner announced that amid the struggle for the two parties to agree on a viable debt solution and a way to fix the deficit, that the GOP may push ahead and address the problem itself. Such a push is almost unheard of in politics, and represents further stratification of parties.

However, with the clock ticking and a 2.1 trillion dollar deficit on the line amid a resurgence of recession issue, the matter is one that may need to be forcefully addressed. The means of addressing the problems with this country have been effectively stopped by party bickering, and any kind of progression would be welcome.

As the political parties bicker rover the most effective way to reduce the debt, it still grows and spreads, undermining their efforts. Whether Boehner’s announcement was rhetoric or not, a strong response is needed to counter this issue, before it is lost before another ineffective political body.

Comments Off on Obama’s Health Care Takes a Step Forward

In a victory for President Obama’s health care overhaul, the reform passed its first Federal appeal and took a step toward being a law.

A panel in Cincinnati has ruled in favor of the law, and is allowing it to continue forward. the health care reform, which still draws fiery criticism from opponents, proposes that every American be required to have a minimum amount of health care.

Opponents of the courts decision have vowed to challenge this propel all the way up to the Supreme Court, if necessary. More than 30 appeals and lawsuits have been filed in order to stop the law, with the majority of them failing to take hold and prevent it.

In an interesting twist, this decision marks the first time that a Republican federal appointee has agreed with the validity and merits of the law. Opponents of the law have generally been shocked to find such a positive ruling from said official, but vow to keep fighting anyway.

The Republican Lineup….. Meh?

Comments Off on The Republican Lineup….. Meh?

Much as it pains us to say it, the Republican lineup of candidates and the 2012 Presidential run seem to be falling between the cracks. The Republican lineup so far has been nothing especially memorable, even if you feel particularly strong about any of the candidates.

Whats more, the Republican effort seems to be lackluster and less energetic than in previous years, perhaps due to the fact that there is no overwhelming support for any of the candidates.

Even if the GOP manages to find someone that can effectively ride the middle of the spectrum to success, the killing of Osama Bin Laden has given President Obama a key piece of leverage needed to maintain office. Clearly, if the GOP wants to make a competitive effort out of it, it needs to either step up its game or find a new avenue.

Again, it pains us to say this, but looking at a subject pragmatically is sometimes the best way to move forward with it. A stronger and more energetic effort is required to win in 2012.

Mitt Romney and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum will all be there on June 13 to debate on the Saint Anselm College campus.

This will be the first time that many of these individuals will be publicly discussing their platforms with one another.

Tune in to make sure that you can find the Republican candidate that is going to take your vote.

Next Governmental Hurdle?

Comments Off on Next Governmental Hurdle?

The economy has been bouncing back and forth rapidly over the last couple of months. Slow and methodical progress and recovery has been hampered and marred by market fluctuations regarding various issues. It’s is likely that the government will have to face down one of these hurdle in the coming months, and make a concentrated effort to fix one of these issues.

-Housing. The housing market is in a slump. While that is potentially good news for those looking to get a good price on a home, the current forecast for the market is not favorable regarding the situation. The slump is exacerbated by diminishing confidence from investors overall.

-Banks. While the bailout calmed the banking crisis a couple of years ago, some branches have begun to slump back. Part of the problem is the flaws in the system, while the market fluctuation does more than enough to destabilize rates and banking.

-Oil Prices. While this is the most likely to stabilize due to the investment that big oil companies have in retaining consumers, the price jumps in oil served to turn off many investors over the last couple of months. Confidence has almost completely eroded in this area.

All of these hurdles have the potential to severely destabilize the economy further, causing a ripple effect. Therefore, it is highly important that the government handle all of the situations carefully, and prioritize something in order to give us a sense of hope for recovery.
