Businesses, especially small businesses, must often pay for benefits for their employees, and budding American entrepreneurs would not have this additional expense to worry about when starting an enterprise, under a single-payer system. Even huge companies like General Motors and Ford are suffering because of the lack of universal coverage for all Americans. One of the greatest drains upon both automotive companies' finances has been the extravagant benefits they promised to retired as well as its current workers, a drain upon profits that no corporation based in a country with 'socialized medicine' will have to suffer. Ironically, many companies that represent American capitalism are seeking to expand their operations in nations with single-payer healthcare systems to reduce labor costs, even if wages and taxes may be higher some of in nations, such as Canada.
While it is true there are frustrating delays in terms of accessing care in the United Kingdom, Canada, and other nations with single-payer nations, it is also worthy of reflection that both anecdotally and statistically, Americans must wait for a long time, for approval for payment from their insurance companies for procedures, and in the waiting rooms of many Emergency Rooms that are filled to the brim of individuals who use the facility as a site of primary care, because they cannot afford a regular physician. Americans may even find their coverage denied after the...
"For instance, it takes more people to administer Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts that it does to administer the entire health care system of Canada" (Robinson, 2007). "Before Canada implemented their national health program, their health costs were the same portion of their economy as in the U.S. After they implemented their program, their costs stabilized at 9% while U.S. costs have increased to 14%. They spend one tenth of what U.S. health care providers spend on overhead" (Robinson, 2007). The length of wait times is also partially due to the dearth of specialists in Canada, not because of the single-payer system itself, where everyone pays into the system, rich and poor and thus is committed to its quality.
Under the single payer system, America would have a truly democratic system of healthcare -- rich and poor, citizen and immigrant, young and old, would all be covered. America pioneered democracy as a political system, yet America must look abroad for models to heal our ailing system in this particular sphere of American public life.

Clinton's Lewinsky Speech Presidential scandal speeches should be considered a unique form of discoursed that follow a common pattern and have similar elements. All of these may not be found in every single speech but most certainly will, including Richard Nixon's Second Watergate Speech (1973), Ronald Reagan's Iran-Contra Speech (1987), and Bill Clinton's Monica Lewinsky Speech (1998). All the presidents used strong, direct and active voice when making these speeches, with
As a result, by the late 1980s, the job-creation rate in Arkansas was among the highest in the country. During all this time, Clinton never left sight of his life-long ambition of getting to the highest political office in the country. He methodically prepared himself for the job by learning the ropes and by gradually assuming a number of national leadership roles, e.g., in 1985 and 1986 he served as
Advertising and public relations serve to communicate ideas and convince the audience of something. Politicians are among the most prolific advertising spenders during election campaigns and can have enormous public relations machines. This is especially true of Presidential candidates, who must first run for their party's nomination and then must run for President. We know that Hillary Clinton went from frontrunner to loser in the race for the Democratic Presidential

The Jones case was dismissed, as the alleged conduct clearly did not meet federal standards for sexual harassment, and although Lewinsky confirmed the affair and produced evidence (an infamous blue dress with the President's semen stain on it) she said she had never been asked to lie or had been given a job in payment for her silence. Yet impeachment proceedings, rather than censoring for bad conduct (as called upon
Juniors of my old high school, It has been a great pleasure to receive your letter and notice such a keen interest in economics and politics at your early age. The fact that you are already following the evolution of the presidential race and that you are asking questions about it show a great desire to learn and find out new things. I will be more than happy to share
