In this assignment on Historical Perspective, students are required to pick one (1) similar

 

federal policy that was discussed over a span of two (2) different administrations. Addressing the

 

historical perspective of the time when the policy was considered or implemented. Indicate the

 

context or the problem of the day and the urgency for the policy. Analyze the social, economic,

 

and political environments for the times the policy was discussed or implemented. Finally,

 

critique the policy for its effectiveness of the time. For this assignment, we will be reviewing the

 

Domestic policies of Presidents Ronald Reagan and Barack Obama.

 

Historical perspective of the time when the policy was discussed or implemented

 

Analysis of Ronald Reagan's domestic policy finds that President Reagan came to the

 

White House during the election of 1980. Ronald Reagan would become the fortieth President of

 

the United States, defeating President Jimmy Carter. Currently, Republican holds a majority in

 

the House and Senate. Interestingly enough, Republicans had a similar majority in 1980, the first

 

time in twenty-five years Republicans were able to obtain a majority in both houses.

 

President Reagan's domestic policy for Governing sounds similar to that of the

 

Republicans national platform today; Bigger Government isn't the solution to today's problems

 

but the cause of our Nation's problems, and smaller Government is the key to a Capitalist

 

economy. Additionally, Reagan's national platforms included reducing taxes, increased state

 

rights, economic prosperity through private enterprise, increasing defense spending and

 

emphasizing relationships with proven allies. You can see the similar political platforms and

 

policy promises in today's presidential campaign, even the slogan "Make America Great Again"

 

was used by Ronald Reagan further driving his policy positions on the American People ASSIGNMENT 1: HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE REVISION 3 (Associated Press 1980). According to the Gallup poll, he ended his presidency in 1989 with a

 

fifty-three percent job-approval rating (Rossinow, D. 2013)

 

In Contrast, President Obama was elected as the forty-third President based on a national

 

platform of increased Government and spending. President Obama?s main domestic policy

 

achievement would be the Affordable Care Act that mandated all Americans have health

 

insurance and provided subsidies for families that could not afford the mandate.

 

Analyze the social, economic, and political environments for the times the policy was

 

discussed or implemented

 

Social and economic environments play a part in policy making; specifically, in the

 

input-output policy making models. During President Reagan?s first term he was faced with a

 

weak economy that included high inflation and an unemployment rate of 7.5% (Domitrovic

 

2012). Similarly, President Obama met and an even higher unemployment rate of 7.8%.

 

Political factors during the Reagan administrations played a huge role in the creation of

 

a policy that would propel Reagan and similarly Obama, to the White House for two terms. The

 

political climate under Reagan was the rising challenge of the economy and foreign policy.

 

President Obama took office in 2008 when the economy was just entering the great depression,

 

and unemployment would rise to as high as 10% in 2010. Critique the policy for its effectiveness of the time

 

Currently, the net job growth for President Obama is around 800,000. Compared to

 

President Reagan's net job growth of five million; one can come to the conclusion the

 

Reaganomics have succeeded economically more than Obamanomics (Domitrovic 2012). ASSIGNMENT 1: HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE REVISION 4 Reagan?s economic plan was not without criticism, one major concern during his

 

Presidemcy was Reagan?s tax policy. In August, 1981, Congress passed the Economic Recovery

 

Tax Act of 1981. This legislation reduced individual and corporate income taxes drastically,

 

reducing by $33 billion the amount of tax revenue coming into the government for fiscal 1982. It

 

represented the largest tax cut in American history. ASSIGNMENT 1: HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE REVISION 5 References
