Voices in the Street – Shutdowns, Defaults and Roll-outs: The Obamacare War Rages On

Play

With the government shutdown over and having narrowly escaped default on our debt, Democrats were well-poised to make significant gains in public opinion and perhaps the 2014 elections.  But the roll-out of the Affordable Care Act website found less than 10% of the 19 million people who tried signing up were successful.  So we hit the streets to ask your friends and neighbors:  Have  Republicans hurt their brand with their relentless, yet unsuccessful attempts to defund Obamacare, or have Democrats proven that the government isn’t capable of doing anything right with their less-than-impressive roll-out of healthcare.gov?

Voices in the Street – Rounding up Chemical Weapons in the Middle East: A ‘Syrias’ dilemma for the United States

Play

It’s been more than a year since President Obama claimed the use of chemical weapons would be a red line in the Syrian conflict.  And recently Syrian President Assad took Secretary of State John Kerry up on his suggestion that a relinquishing and a full inventory of their chemical weapon stockpiles would be a way out of using military force.  How the Syrian conflict resolves itself is still yet to be seen, so Voices in the Street asked your friends and neighbors how the US should deal with this and if military force is justified.
