Veterans came and set up camp in DC and planned to stay until they were given money to feed their families. The national guard was brought in to displace the demonstrators, our WWI veterans.

Ted strived to improve health care in the United States. He once said, "One of the most shameful things about modern America is that in our unbelievably rich land, the quality of health care available to many of our people is unbelievably poor, and the cost is unbelievably high” (Committee for a Democratic Majority 2). He has played an important role with Jacob Javits in the creation of the National Cancer Act of 1971.

Governments are actually getting involved in preventing health problems. Another reason why governments should get involved in what these companies are serving is because it’s costing the country money when the government has to pay for citizen’s medicine. Due to the current state of the economy, most countries are trying to help people choose healthy foods so that in the future it will not affect the government money in trying to cover its citizen’s medical bills. So far the government in the United States has banned items that contain high amounts of trans-fat in schools from kindergarten up to the 12th grade (U.S. Department of Health, 2012).Having the government involved in children’s food at a young age is very beneficial because studies show that kids who eat better are more focused on their work (Smith, 2012). Also if kids are taught to eat healthy then most of time these kids will follow the same pattern at home (Smith,
Greg Kolakowski English 101-075 Ms. Rendek September 8, 2013 In the past decades obesity has been a growing epidemic in American society among young adults but was overlooked for years. In 1999 James Behnke, the executive at Pillsbury made it his goal to make the emerging obesity epidemic a priority to the big food companies and show how to deal with it. This was merely the first step in his plan, he then wanted to impose industry wide limits on certain products pulling back the use of salt, sugar and fats from unhealthy foods. Many factors such as the marketing aspect contribute to the causes of obesity in today's society and can impact our decisions on what we eat. Despite being "concerned that obesity was becoming a major issue"
Obama proposed reducing health care costs, including Medicare and Medicaid. Obama said he's willing to consider medical malpractice reform to "rein in frivolous lawsuits" and presumably drive down health care costs to the government in return. Though that proposal so far has not moved far beyond talking points, the Congressional Budget Office and Joint Committee on Taxation in 2009 estimated that tort reform could reduce federal government health care costs by $41 billion over 10 years. Obama pledged to have high speed rail available for 80 percent of americans. He also pledged to have 1 million electric cars on the road by 2015.
The Conservatives dismissed the findings as they were too expensive to implement and did not officially release the report. Only 260 copies were ever produced (Gordon et al, 1999). The Black Report stated that there was significant evidence that poverty needed to be abolished to reduce inequalities in health as it was found that people who live in poverty are more likely to have health problems and thus suffer neglect and other forms of abuse (DHSS, 1980). ).
