Prior to reading the articles for this discussion board about America’s debt, deficit, and pending health care bill, I did not know much about the current enigma faced by our country today. I did know that unemployment, although the recession is technically over or almost over, is still reaching record highs. Florida alone has an 11.6 unemployment rate. Additionally, I knew that with the population in the United States getting older and with the government’s obligation to Medicare, it is going to be harder than ever to close the gap between spending and deficit. I also recognize the importance of being swift and decisive when it comes to coming up with a plan to tackle the deficit issue in America. As exemplified by the article titled An End to the Japanese Lesson , if we wait too long to come up with a concrete plan, we could be facing an even more prevalent and complicated economic problem in the future. Many are looking at President Obama to come up with something that will solve the problem before his term in the White House is over.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
