Problems with My Paper

I kind of don't understand citing sources that well. I could definitely use more practice with citing sources or examples. I only have a few sources but a lot of information and ten sources are required. I feel that the paper is too long and I would like for the paper to be explain a little better. Overall, I know I will do my best on this paper and my grade will be passing.

Paper So Far

So far my paper is coming along fine. It could be better. I'll say i'm at least half way of my paper. I'm trying to get as much accurate information as possible. I have chosen the style of my paper. It is not enough research about my topic for 10-12 pages.

Topic of My paper

The topic I chose to do my paper on is Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. We all know it as OCD. I chose this topic because I find it rather interesting. People could be living with this disorder and may not be aware. It is not a major disease, in other words it is not deadly. It is basically a mind thing.

After the Midterm election

McConnell: Obama must 'move in our direction'
The Senate Republican leader said Thursday his party can't "reverse the damage Democrats have done" as long as President Obama still holds the veto, but said if the president wants to get anything done over the next two years he will have "to move in our direction."
"The White House has a choice: They can change course, or they can double down on a vision of government that the American people have roundly rejected," Sen. Mitch McConnell, Kentucky Republican, said. "If they choose the former, they'll find a partner in Republicans. If they don't, we will have more disagreements ahead."
In a speech to the Heritage Foundation, Mr. McConnell, who has led his party through the downs of 2008 and the ups of 2010, said that means "repeatedly" trying — but expecting to fail — to repeal Mr. Obama's signature health care law.
Even though Republicans control the House, the Senate's rules requiring consensus ensure that the upper chamber will remain the key to any legislation that will pass. That means Mr. McConnell remains the key gatekeeper.
He said Mr. Obama must realize the election was "about you."
In a press conference Wednesday, Mr. Obama seemed to accept that analysis. The president was introspective, and at times despondent, as he accepted blame for his party's disastrous showing.
And Mr. Obama listed some areas where he said his agenda will already be circumscribed, such as his goal of passing a broad bill to limit greenhouse gas emissions.
While Mr. Obama was chastened post-election, Mr. McConnell stuck to the same tone he has taken for the last two years of steely, plain-spoken opposition.
After a questioner asked him why he didn't also mention trying to repeal the financial regulation bill, Mr. McConnell said they would try that, too: "I'm sorry I left that out."
"Health care was the worst piece of legislation passed in my time in the Senate. The financial services bill is somewhere up there close to that," he said.
