Going back to President Obama’s first run for the presidency, he used his Mom sickness as the means to better the cost of medical so others would not go without. I have looked up different prices of Obama care and they are harsh. Reading over the different rules and regulations of the Obama care in 2015, it states that the less you make, then the less you’re going to pay (Obama care Facts, no date). I did a calculation and just for my husband and me, these are the results I had provided to me.

Introduction In any business there is a certain amount of risk involved, but pharmaceutical research is extremely risky because the failure rate is a great deal higher than the success rate. Ofek and Laufer (2008) state that potentially one in five-thousand drugs actually make it to market after beginning in a lab and that the average time for a drug to make it to market is twelve years (p.1). Drug companies are able to patent a new drug and are given exclusivity rights once approved by the FDA for typically twenty years. This allows companies to recoup research and development costs as well as make a profit, which is the goal of any organization. Once a patent and exclusivity rights run out, generic drug manufactures tend to enter the market and drive down prices.
Many would have to consider Thomas Jefferson as a man who was consistently inconsistent. Jefferson has a strict interpretation of the Constitution. Regardless Jefferson did abandon the principles of his party in order to do what was best for the country and it wasn’t necessarily doing what his party members agree on. Thomas Jefferson inconsistencies included international affairs, politics, and economic policies. Thomas Jefferson’s policies to for economic policies and letting the people follow their dreams to provide themselves with a steady income and provide a living.
Even though 42% of Americans favor it and want to keep it in place. Although 47% of Americans favor repealing it (Gallup.com, 2012). It will all be up to Republicans and Democrats, whether the law will be kept in place. Debate over the Affordable Care Act has focused largely on its implications for the role of the federal government in American society. Americans remain divided on whether it is the federal government's responsibility to make sure all Americans have healthcare.
It is said that President Obama is the most Pro War President ever. It is wrong to fight and kill other people whether there is a purpose or not. It’s like playing God. No one has the right to decide and order American people to go overseas and kill. Also, President Obama is indifferent to the US military and national security: Second, for the past few months, his attitude and lack of genuine interests in the US military and national security are very alarming and disturbing.
• It will also give the company access to its cash amounting to $9.5billion, which can also be used to make payment for debt raised for acquisition. • The company can also create a contract allowing it to distribute Genentech’s best selling drugs. Risks of owning 100% of Genentech’s shares: • The acquired company’s minority shareholders are mostly its employees.

(Source 6) Filibusters was another main event that took part in of the passing of the bill. Many people did not even know what the filibusters were. A filibuster is a speech that is drawn out to try to make the opposing side just stop trying to get them to their side. Senator Dirksen described such a powerful speech that caused many voters to stop. Stated in the document, it says that if twenty-seven or more of the senators were to just stop trying the filibusters will stop, but that was not the case.
When signed into law on March 10, 2010, the Obama-approved Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act “ ...increased health care coverage to include 32 million previously uninsured Americans, [and] under the new law, 95% of Americans will be insured" (ProCon.org, 2009). The goal of this health insurance plan is to provide affordable health care to all. The closest the government has come previously is with Medicaid and Medicare programs which grant the elderly and the poor a guaranteed minimum of health services (Carmalt & Zaidi, 2004). Meanwhile, with the current system, policy makers, politicians and insurance companies are reaping the rewards from how the current health care system is run. According to Senator Sanders (2010), 30% of each health care dollar private insurance companies spend is on “...administration and billing, exorbitant CEO compensation packages, advertising, lobbying and campaign contributions”.
Another Major flaw was that “the country, whose president, Woodrow Wilson, had dreamt up the idea of the League - America -, refused to join it.” The league’s most powerful militaries Britain and France not only suffered casualties, but also economically as they were greatly in debt to the United States. Because of this neither country was enthusiastic to get involved in disputes that did not affect Western Europe. Therefore the League had no military might and could only enforce economic sanctions in hope that they worked against aggressive nations. All these flaws point to signs that the League of Nations was a failure. However, even though there were a few setbacks, the league was a success in many ways.
Additionally, USA never joined due to the fact that when the war ended in 1918, even though Woodrow Wilson pushed USA to join the League of Nations, his plans were confounded by Congress. USA was the leading power of the time, and its absence was a significant setback to the League, as now they had to rely on Britain and France who had been left weaker after WWI. Finally, the League ran on unanimous voting, meaning everyone had to agree for the action to be taken, and the permanent countries; Britain, France, Italy and Japan (who all joined in 1919), had a veto. This was a huge disadvantage because only in a situation where everyone agreed with each other, which was very rare, could an action be taken. In this way we can see that the League of Nations was a failure.
