Dear Congressman,

What a sad day in American history. Where to begin… WWII Vets being pushed around and closed out of open monuments that belong to the people, then yesterday, an authorized “Immigration March” (seriously), and I can’t forget the fallen serviceman’s benefits.

If you have forgotten, the WWII Vets fought for this country and all the freedoms that have come with that. They should never be treated this way. It’s un-patriotic, disgusting behavior. You should all be ashamed. Veterans should be honored for their service and sacrifices.

Secondly, “Immigration” these people are here ILLEGALLY! What rights under the Constitution do they have? NONE! They broke the law when they entered this country illegally. That makes them criminals and felons. However, they were allowed a privilege that American Citizens weren’t. Are you kidding me! THIS IS SO DISTURBING & DISGUSTING!!!!!

Then there’s the fallen soldier’s who gave the ultimate sacrifice for this country. More honor, pride and service then most of you could ever imagine. For all they and their families have sacrificed. And this is how they are repaid. I guess it fits right in there with the military cuts, right? There should never be a question about their death benefits. Did you all forget this is not your money? This is beyond appalling…

Oh then there’s the debt ceiling, REALLY! You should all be replaced, you’ve miss- managed our money, lied over and over again, and then there is ACA. Another program that we cannot afford! If the “cupboards are empty”, then may I suggest closing the kitchen!

Lastly, Obama should be impeached! This is not leadership. This is tyranny, fraud, and many, many lies. This administration continuously leaks sensitive military information. HE IS NOT A KING or DICTATOR! You should all remember that. He should be negotiating, you…...

The following compares and contrasts the overall budgets and Medicare budgets for each of the federal proposals, and also presents an argument against Congressman Ryan’s proposed Medicare budget. U.S “On-Budget” Surplus and Deficit Historical Data Presented below is the United States surplus and deficit data according to the historical tables provided by the Office of Management and Budget. * The United States on-budget has ran a deficit for the majority of the years between 1990 and 2011. * The years 1999 and 2000 both ran a surplus on-budget. * See chart no. 1, page 6.

The surplus in the Social Security Trust Funds is a large source of borrowing for the Federal Government (Penner,......

...because of the current state of the nation and the globe, which is why the people need fair and unbiased media sources more than ever. Supporters of Congressman Ron Paul have been furiously accusing the mainstream media of being biased and ignoring Paul throughout the primaries. Recently, Dr. Paul’s website announced that, due to lack of available funds, the congressman will not actively campaign in upcoming state primaries. The site’s spokesperson also added, "Our campaign will continue to work in the state convention process. We will continue to take leadership positions, win delegates, and carry a strong message to the Republican National Convention that Liberty is the way of the future" (RonPaul2012.com). A few hours later, most major media outlets lit up with headlines ranging from “Ron Paul Suspends Funds” to “Ron Paul Out of the Race”. One article, from the highly regarded Washington Times, suggested that “Rep. Ron Paul said Monday he will not compete in Republican primaries in any of the states that have not yet voted — essentially ending the 2012 primary season and leaving the path open for Mitt Romney to win the GOP presidential nomination.” (Dinan, 2012). Rarely will a news media source be so blatantly biased towards a story. The author of the news article not only ignored the facts, but also horribly skewed them. Congressman Paul, his spokesperson, and his website all insisted that he was not ending his campaign. They even went further by adding that they will......

State of Play Mass Media

...Christopher Boshers Professor Jim Willis Mass Media and Cultures 26 February 2013 Story of a Lifetime The film that I chose “State of Play” starring Russell Crowe, Ben Affleck, Rachel McAdams, Helen Mirren, Jason Bateman, Robin Wright Penn and Jeff Daniels was based on British television show with the same name. The story follows a journalist that is old friends with a Congressman who becomes entangled in the murder of a researcher that is currently working on the role of a big business in the security business that wants to privatize Homeland Security. At the beginning of the movie we see what appears to be a thief being chased by a very suspicious character. He then kills the man and shoots a pizza delivery man who survives the shooting. The next day the intern, Sonia Baker appears to commit suicide by stepping in front of a train. This is when Congressman Collins approaches Cal McAffrey, who happens to be the journalist and the main character of the movie. This is when Cal discovers that the Congressman and Sonia have had an affair which puts the Congressman in a really bad predicament. With this information Cal is able to be the first that has the necessary evidence from a credible source on the story. This source fit all three of the criteria for a news source. He was an authority on the matter, he was thought to be a credible source, and was available and willing to speak. The investigation leads to a PR executive who had served as the PR liaison for the......

...our Congressman Jerry P. Trenas. Because according to his PDAF, he has allotted budgets for each projects that are mostly needed by the people in our city. In his projects for health, he allotted enough budgets for financial assistance to public hospitals which has numerous poor people who were admitted because it’s cheap and affordable. He also allotted budgets for projects for free medicines, free consultation and a discount for those who has different reasons why they are admitted or hospitalized whether it be out-patient or confined. As what I have observed, in many public hospitals around Iloilo City, there is no problem when it comes to payments and buying medicines for poor because some has solicited to our congressman or asked for help for their expenses in the hospitals. In social services projects, our congressman has also done well, because our congressman never failed to give budget to those who mostly needed financial assistance for the implementation of Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services (CIDSS) program such as transportation, medicine, burial, tuition fee, food, clothes and hospital bills; Community-based projects: livelihood and capacity-building assistance in the Lone District of Iloilo City. Like in community-based projects in livelihood most especially, I can see that he has budgeted to projects for poor families like workshops or seminars and provides capitals or budgets to start a small business.

...a recently passed bill, a congressman’s district has been allocated $4 million for programs and projects. It is up to the congressman to decide how to distribute the money. The congressman has decided to allocate the money to four ongoing programs because of their importance to his district – a job training program, a parks project, a sanitation project, and a mobile library. However, the congressman wants to distribute the money in a manner that will please the most voters, or, in other words, gain him the most votes in the upcoming election. His staff’s estimates of the number of votes gained per dollar spent for the various programs are as follows. Program | Votes/ Dollar | Job training | 0.02 | Parks | 0.09 | Sanitation | 0.06 | Mobile library | 0.04 | In order also to satisfy several local influential citizens who financed his election, he is obligated to observe the following guidelines: * None of the programs can receive more than 40% of the total allocation. * The amount allocated to parks cannot exceed the total allocated to both the sanitation project and the mobile library * The amount allocated to job training must at least equal the amount spent on the sanitation project. Any money not spent in the district will be returned to the government; therefore, the congressman wants to spend it all.

The Government

...over spending; or stealing form the taxpayers. These “slush funds” as they are commonly referred to account for nearly 100 million dollars in government spending a year. If these accounts were made payable by the owner I believe that would eliminate some of these claims for reimbursement. Congressman and senators are not drawn from the normal populace any more as they once were. These people are now called professional politicians. The go to school to learn how to be politicians, and they spend as much time in office as they can. The government was originally meant to be made up of selected AVERAGE citizens and rotate every other year. Eliminating these “professional” politicians would breathe new life into a sometimes stagnant political process, as well as a fresh perspective on some less than clear policies. The average salary for a congressman is a staggering 174,000 dollars a year. They earn this salary every year they are in office and are eligible for pension after only five years. A pension pays them for life. So while the government is paying congressman the debt is increasing. Senators can make a yearly income of 193,000 a year another staggering figure. Pensions for congressman and senators can reach up to 113,000 and 175,000 a year respectively for the life of the official. Making this pension limited and not lifelong could help reduce the amount of money the government needs to tax the public to cover the cost. Corporations, and their almost infinite spending......

History of President Johnson

...Star), now known as The University Star. During his four years of college he took 9 months off to take a teaching job at the Mexican American children at the segregated Welhausen School in Cotulla, Texas to earn money to complete his college degree. After graduating from college Lyndon became a teacher at Pearsall High School in Pearsall, Texas, and he taught public speaking at Sam Houston High in Houston, Texas. In 1930 Johnson decided to follow in his father’s footsteps and get involved in politics. His father served six terms in the Texas Legislature. Lyndon’s father was a good friend of Congressman Sam Rayburn. Congressman Rayburn helped Johnson get involved in Texas politics by having him campaign for Texas State Senator Welly Hopkins’ run for Congress. Senator Hopkins recommended Johnson to Congressman Richard M. Kilberg, and Johnson was appointed by Congressman Kilberg to be his legislative secretary. During this time he was elected speaker of a group of Congressional aides (known as “Little Congress”) where he cultivated Congressmen, newspapermen and lobbyists. Johnson attended Georgetown University Law Center for several months. While at Georgetown, he married Claudia Alta Taylor on November 17, 1934. Claudia’s nickname was “Lady Bird”. Lyndon and Lady Bird had two daughters. Johnson liked to give people and animals names with his and his wife’s initials. His first daughter, Lynda Bird, was born in 1944 followed by his second......

The Draft

... Since the primary intent of Congressman Rangel, Hartmann and others in reinstating or supporting the draft is antiwar, portraying this legislation as a national service program offering a choice of a nonmilitary alternative -conscription into the civil service - is disingenuous and a distraction from its true purpose and goal. What possible relevancy does forced service in the Peace Corps, for example, have to ending unnecessary war and American apathy? Further, should Congressman Rangel's Bills become law, as endless and futile wars for profit, greed and power continue and escalate, is it realistic to assume that draftees will choose military service in adequate numbers to restore the ranks of injured and killed combatants? Or, as is more likely, wouldn't "national security" considerations require an abrogation of choice and individuals to be conscripted into the military regardless of their preference? In reality, then, these bills are not about creating jobs and rebuilding this nation's infrastructure. Nor is their purpose to provide American youth with much needed discipline, structure, responsibility and an opportunity to recommit to their country. Nor will they accomplish these goals should they be enacted. Though misleadingly titled a National Service Bill, what is being proposed here is clear and simply nothing other than the reinstatement of a military draft. The Moral and Legal Argument against Conscription While I share Congressman Rangel's and Thom Hartmann's......

How Effectively Does Congress Perform Its Legislative Function?

...How effectively does congress perform its legislative function? (30 marks) The legislative process refers to the passing of bills in congress, meaning that they become laws. The process has been criticises previous due to the fact that the way the process is set up means that ti is extremely difficult for some bills to be passed. This is due to several factors, and has led to onlookers arguing that congress does not effectively perform its legislative function, as they often struggle to pass bills. A bill must get passed at many different stages before it can become a law. The process ultimately starts with the bill being proposed to a congressperson by a civilian, an interest group, or the executive itself. The congressman then decides whether to pass this bill, and therefore move it onto the committee stage, or to reject it. If he/she decides to send it to the committee stage, the bill will be sent to the respective committee which possesses the area of expertise needed to properly inspect this bill. For example, if the bill concerns army helicopters, it will be sent to the armed forces committee in the senate. From there, the committee then writes up the bill in formal legal language, this is known as the ‘mark-up’. The committee then votes now whether the bill deserves to be passed, and if so, it is passed on to full house hearing; formally known as the second hearing. However, if the committee doesn’t deem the bill worthy of the full house hearing, it has the power...
