Running head: Terrorism in U.S Terrorism in U.S Student name: Harwinder S Deol Institution: American Public University Date: 12-22-2017 1 Running head: Terrorism in U.S 2 Terrorism In the modern world today, domestic and international security is becoming a menace. It is because of the increased external and internal threats in some countries especially the developed countries such as U.S. Terrorism is one of the security threats that is giving the federal government of U.S sleepless nights as it improvises new informed strategic plans in curbing the problem. However, terrorism is an international level problem which includes some of the following acts; property destruction, sabotage, killings and injuries, threats and intimidation to mention but a few. Terrorism is regarded as unlawful actions that encompass violence, intimidation or forcing the government to meet the demands of the terrorists. Terrorists who fuel terror attacks do not choose a particular group in the population, but they involve all the people regardless of gender, age, ethnicity, religion and social status to mention but a few. The United States of America has a detailed history of terror attacks starting with the ones of Osama bin Laden and 2011 attacks. The government has tried to curb the issue, but still, there are increased threats to the country. For instance, there was a horrific terror attack in New York City in October 2017 where a truck drove into a trading center killing eight people and leaving twelve injured. Research shows that the attack was from the Isis people who found an entry into the country illegally. Such terror attack served as a threat to the country and compelled Trump to reiterate with a staunch position saying ISIS should not be allowed to return or enter the U.S Middle East defeat or elsewhere. Data also shows such terror attacks occur in places where there is peace compared to other parts of the world such as U.S. The ISIS group from the Middle East, however, is the most global Running head: Terrorism in U.S 3 threat to America, and it is regarded as the most hostile group but it is the least capable as per the recent evaluation (Chalk, 2008). Solution to terrorism To control terrorism is easy as long as the three federal arms of the government collaborates their efforts and work towards the objectives to curb terrorism. The terror attacks majorly focus on the civilians, but they cannot come out to control terror attacks since they have no enough power and weapons hence such task is left to the government. The three federal arms of the government which include; the executive, legislative and judicial branches should work while following the rule of law to make sure such issue is eradicated. There are a number of solutions to terrorism, but the major ones include; enhance internal and external information sharing, prevent terrorist travel to mention but a few. Enhance domestic and international information sharing From the recent terror attacks in the United States of America such as the 9/11 attacks, research shows that most of them are due to insufficient information both domestically and internationally. When there is communication across the borders about a suspected terror attack, a country can plan early to curb it in advance. Therefore, the United States of America should increase communication with its allies and collaborate with the federal branches to prevent U.S from prolonged terror attacks. (Crenshaw & LaFree, 2017) Domestically, the United States should perfect interagency communications and make sure that all the departmental levels of the government both federal and local have equal information sharing. Prevent terrorist travel To prevent terrorists from entering or leaving a country, there should be thorough screening at the entry and exit points in the foreign and mother countries. To implement such Running head: Terrorism in U.S 4 solution, the federal branches of the government should enforce and pass laws regarding travel screening. Secondly, increase and expand passenger name record and visa waiver program which compels foreign travelers who travelers from various into the U.S to get screened. The U.S government should also pull up their socks on visa security coordination between Homeland security and the State departments and the support the Federal Flight Deck Officer routinely program gives room trained pilots to have their firearms. Such criteria will continually affect on intelligence and sharing information across all platforms, for example, the Transportation Security Administration responsible for securing flights and the U.S. Preferable solution From the above competing solutions, it is evident that each of them can stand out and work better to curb terrorism in the United States of America. However, a preferable solution is the prevention of terrorist travel. It is because it involves screening of foreign individuals who enter and leave U.S including their luggage. Moreover, such individuals should have the credentials that support their visit such as Visa and passport hence the solution is effective. Responsibilities of the three branches of the federal government The three branches of the government include; the executive, the legislature and the judicially. The responsibilities of the executive are providing directions to the government, commanding the Armed Forces and enforcement of law including voting laws. The legislature is responsible for passing laws, initiating spending bills, impeachment of officials and providing approval to treaties. Finally, the judiciary has the mandate to interpret the constitution, reviewing laws, and giving decisions to cases that involve state rights (Beck, 2017). Conclusively, national security is a vital issue to the nation, but the security threats such as terrorism destabilize such security. Terrorism is the major current security issue in the U.S as Running head: Terrorism in U.S briefed above and its solutions include preventing terrorist travel and enhancing domestic and internal information sharing. The responsibilities of the three federal branches of the federal government as outlined above focus on proving maximum security. References Chalk, P. (2008).

Page |0 Obamacare Debate Harwinder S Deol 12/22/2017 Page |1 Obamacare Debate Introduction to the Problem Obamacare is officially known as Patients Protection, and Affordable Care Act (or simply ACA) is a legislation that was signed into law by President Obama in the year 2010. The aim of the legislation was to extend health insurance coverage to the estimated 15 million who lack health insurance coverage (BBC, 2017). Among other things the legislation requires; every American citizen to insured; employers to provide medical cover to their employees; and bans insurance companies from denying health insurance coverage people with pre-existing conditions. The Democrats and the Republican parties have opposing ideas as regards the appropriateness of the ACA, and consequently, the Republicans have recently made attempts to repeal the act while the Democrats are proposing bipartisan negotiations, blocking the Republican's attempts to roll back the acts. Some of the concerns raised by Republican politicians, and president Trump’s administration are valid while others are rather nonfactual. For example, the Republicans argue that the law is imposing too many costs on the business, and that it is an unwarranted intrusion into public, and private affairs. They argue that its implementation is a strategy to reduce employment to US citizens. The point of controversy now is that the Republicans (the presidents, members of the Senate, the House of Representatives, and the state) are keen to repeal the Obamacare law, and consequently do away with it (Ojala, 2017). They see this approach as the only solutions to the flaws of the Obamacare legislation, and the best way to ensure good healthcare to US citizens, protect private business, and improve the quality of life. If the Page |2 Republicans succeed in repealing the ACA, the Congress Budget Office predicts an increase of uninsured people in the US by 15 million in the year 2018 (Pear, Kaplan, and Cochrane, 2017). The Democrat politicians on the, on the other hand, support the Obamacare program but also accepts its flaws. The Democrats, therefore, do not want the ACA to be repealed but instead are proposing a bipartisan approach to resolving the issues involves. They are fronting for negotiated solutions that will ensure the ACA is left operational but its challenges addressed. The role of the legislature in supporting mediated solutions The Senate, on 25th July 2017, rejected a bill proposed by the majority repeal certain sections of the ACA. Among the sections that they wanted repealed were those requiring all citizens to have health insurance; that compelling the employees to provide insurance to the employees, and the bill also wanted increased funds for local health centers. Although the Republican Party has the majority in the senate, they lost at 46 votes with 51 senators voting against the bill (Pear, Kaplan, and Cochrane, 2017). This demonstrates that the Senate is supportive of the ACA, and the need for negotiated solutions to its flaws regardless of the political affiliations. This way the Senate is playing a central role in ensuring improved health care by supporting negotiated policy approach that will not do away with the gains already made. The role of judiciary is mediating conflict between republicans, democrats, and employers The judiciary is also playing a role in negotiating this controversy. In the year 2012, the Supreme Court ruled in a case filed by 26 states against the federal government (Were, 2013). It declared the ACA constitutional but struck down the provisions that required the states to expand government-sponsored Medicaid program. Following the ruling 18 states decided not to Page |3 participate in the ACD (Were, 2013). In a similar case filed by employers against the federal government in the year 2016, the court failed to reach a ruling but ordered for compromise approach between parties. Therefore, while the states and the local governments are taking mixed decisions based on the political affiliations the judiciary seems non-partisan, and unwilling to do away with the gains made so far in the health systems. The executive in frustrating dialogue, and mediation The executive is also recently frustrating efforts to have a negotiated solution, especially since president Trump in supporting the repealing of the Obamacare act. Ojala (2017) state that Trump, and congressional leaders are unlikely to lead the negotiations for better health care since they narrowly failed to take health care away from millions of people. Role of States, and local governments The law, however, requires the executive to finance the states so as to manage ACA. The states then establish a local government to provide health services. So, the local governments then make policies supported by their states. The role of the states, and local governments, therefore, is providing healthcare services tailored to the needs of citizens, and in line with their party’s aspirations. The local government role is also to collects citizens’ concerns, and feedback to the federal government, and legislature for further deliberation A bipartisan approach to negotiations between parties, institutions, and businesses is the best solution to this controversy. Since both the divides have valid concerns, it would be prudent to negotiate instead of doing away with the gains made through Obamacare. Negotiation will also lead to popular solutions that are inclusive, and pro-poor. Page |4 References BBC. (2017, 13 July). Why Obamacare is controversial. Ojala, E. (2017, 26 August).
