eelection of the Democrats four years ago came with the infamous Obamacare which was introduced by president Obama during his campaign and later made it a policy and a health care law. Through this, the government has kept the hope on its re-election come 2014 election. In a recent speech given by President Obama, it was evident that he was willing to continue supporting Americans who wanted to keep their health plans. Conversely, the recent debate pertaining to healthcare has narrowed the perceived advantages that Democratic candidates have always held over their opponents (Bernstein Para 1). In fact, some Americans have argued that the health-care law’s flubs have collaborated with the government shut down to render harsh verdict to the concerned individuals and cities in the United States. Similarly, a number of people have rubbished the current House of Representatives arguing that they do not do anything much except sending bills to the Senate and watching them as they struggle to keep the government stable (Bernstein Para 6).
According to a representative of the Republicans, the Obamacare is argued to be the defining issue in determining whether the Democrats will take control of the House of Representatives in the elections due to be held in one year from now or not. In fact, the main controversy revolves around the president’s signature legislative in relation to administrative fumbles. Of importance to note is that, the midterm elections scheduled to be held one year from now are meant to shape how ambitious his legislative agenda can realistically be worked upon for the remaining time the Democrat might continue holding the office, the congressional investigations he might have faced and more so the changes that his presidency will have taken (O’Keefe and Kane Para 10).

As a means of understanding these dynamics as well as the ways in which governance is likely to exhibit itself within the near future, this brief essay will seek to draw a key level of inference based upon the mandate that the election has given to the shareholders within government to set a new path ahead.
What do you need to do on both of these fronts to assure that you fulfill the duties of your office and continue to stay in office? (20 points, 300 words) One of the primary shortcomings it is often exhibited within individuals who run for reelection for either the Senate or the House of Representatives is the fact that they appropriated disproportional level of their time resources to campaigning.
The House of Representatives and one third of the Senate members face election every two years. The Democrats are expected to come out the top in the Congress and are posed to win the majority of Governorships, bowling over the Republicans in this year's mid term polls.
In general, Republicans are more conservative in that they favor traditional institutions and the status quo, restrictions on private and social activities, and freedoms from government controls over economic activity and businesses. Yet, not all Democrats are liberal and all Republicans conservative.
Both the Republicans and Democrats are aiming to do two things in the campaign. First mobilize their core supporters, both to vote in numbers and to persuade the neighbors to do the same. Second, win over as many as possible of those voters who consider themselves neither republican nor democrats.
Although this elephant logo signifies strength and force, this is not the party in majority. This party traces its roots back to Abraham Lincoln who was the first republican president. It has since then faced many critical moments of the country's history like the American Civil War and its Reconstruction right up to the challenges faced by America's last president, George W Bush, who is the 19th republican president (Rutland, 1996).
