way our government is using the money our country has, but they stated that we they are aware that our country’s debt is increasing and that the US spends way too much. I am planning on using the “Claim of Policy” type of persuasive speech. I believe that the government should spend more on education and less on other things; this would be a change of law or policy. I plan on using problem-cause order or problem-cause-solution. I haven’t fully decided whether my cause will be clearly stated in the problem or not, given the direction that I take the speech in. I am still in the process of doing research and I’m hoping that what I find will help me decide the full direction of my argument. As of right now, I feel like it will end up being a problem-solution order if I stick with the cause of funding for education. My first source is titled “STOP US BEFORE WE SPEND AGAIN: INSTITUTIONAL CONSTRAINTS ON GOVERNMENT SPENDING”. The author is named David Primo. It is an article from November 2006 about government spending policies. I found this article via EBSCOhost. The author lists his sources at the end of the document, such as Advisory Commission on Intergovernmental Relations and US Census Bureau, to show where his information came from, which makes him seem honest. The source is also only about four and a half years old which makes it relatively current. It also states the volume number and issue number on the first page of the document. This document will help my argument because it talks about the pitfalls of our governments’ spending and policy on spending.

    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.
