Simulations: A Consumer Advocate, A First Term President

1073 words - 4 pages

You Are A Consumer Advocate
I did very well in this simulation considering I knew very little about what a consumer advocate did on a daily basis going into the simulation. Even though I did very well, I still did the worst on this simulation. Many times the answer would have been much easier if I had known what a consumer advocate did before starting the simulation. My results were five out six challenges correct. The only challenge I was incorrect on was the first. I believe the reason I missed the first one was because I was unfamiliar with what consumer advocate's do. I quickly figured out exactly what a consumer advocate does which helped me the remainder of the simulation.
Since I learned the most from this simulation there were many things that I learned from You Are A Consumer Advocate. I never knew the important role consumer advocates have in the tedious legislative process. Many bills die every year going through our difficult legislative process. Without consumer advocates, many more bills would never get to the House of Representatives and Senate. Consumer advocates are excellent at negotiating to reach a compromise on many issues to ensure it does reach the House and Senate. While doing this they have to make sure that the compromises they make are still what the people want. If they do not succeed in convincing everyone that the bill will be beneficial to everyone and not just one small group of people then the bill will die. As I was doing the simulation, I could not believe all of the things that rest on their shoulders. Consumer advocates have a very important job, and are probably as unfamiliar to a lot of the public as they were to me.
The book might not have directly mentioned all of the challenges, mentioned things pertaining to most of the challenges in the simulation. Chapter 11 in the book did help me out throughout a lot of the simulation. In the first challenge, it is asking you to decide who should draft your bill. I knew the correct answer was an interest group that supported my cause because the book mentions that interest groups draft bills often (381). Interest groups was the correct choice because they tend to be very passionate about whatever they are involved in. The answer to the second challenge was also found in the book. In the book it says, “only members of the House or Senate can formally submit a bill” (381). If you knew this before answering the second challenge then the challenge was easy. I could not find anything in the book that was similar to the third challenge. The fourth and sixth challenge were similar in my opinion. I had to choose whether to make a compromise or not. Compromise is not an easy thing to deal with. The book mentions that compromise has been getting harder to reach over the past several years (386). I believe this was shown in these two challenges because I had to make a decision on whether to let something go or to fight it. I did not really...
