Website icon Discussion Participation Scoring Guide.
The U.S. Congress debates a new budget every fiscal year. Most Republicans want to reduce federal spending; most Democrats do not want to reduce spending and may, in some cases, seek to increase it. Choose a perspective, and in your post identify three reasons that the United States should currently seek to decrease or increase federal spending. In your rationale, be sure to reflect on the impact of government spending on GDP and national income. Draw on the course readings and your own research to support your assertions. Be sure to use APA format to cite sources.
Please respond to at least one of your peers. State whether you agree or disagree with any or all of the reasons given and why. Use the course readings and your own research to support your arguments and use APA guidelines for citations and references. Please remember to be respectful at all times.
Important note: For all the discussions in this course, post your initial discussion no later than 11:59 p.m. (Central Time) Thursday. Support your post with the theories presented in the unit readings and resources, using proper APA formatted citations and references. Post your discussion responses no later than 11:59 p.m. (Central Time) Sunday.
