5 Presidents Who Wanted Health Care In America

Health Care in AmericaOn June 28th, 2012 the Supreme Court of the United States deemed that the Affordable Health Care Act was constitutional. It was a shock to Republicans and a win for the President. Do you agree with the decision? Are you against it? Either way, what are your reasons? While President Obama will go down in history as the President that passed this legislation, did you know that other presidents have tried before him? Some of them even got pretty close to succeeding in the health care controversy. Here is a list of previous presidents (2 Republicans and 3 Democrats) who worked at getting Health Care in America:

What If Nixon Hadn’t Been Ruined By Watergate?


[ReviewAZON asin=”0275979156″ display=”inlinepost”] Richard Nixon’s political career was ruined after the Watergate Scandal.  If you are unfamiliar with Watergate, it is a business complex in Washington, D.C.  In 1972, five men broke into the Democratic National Headquarters there in an effort to wiretap the Democrats.  That’s illegal.  What’s worse is that President Nixon knew about it and tried to cover it up.  Over the next two years, it was revealed by writers Bernstein and Woodward how involved the inner circle of Washington was involved.  With impeachment imminent,  Nixon resigned the Presidency and went down in disgrace.  But what would have happened if he wasn’t caught?

Five U.S. Presidents Who Got In Trouble

NixonEvery once in awhile, the political parties have to do something to stir things up with the President.  This is not to say that they are all innocent, but sometimes it gets so bad that it goes to trial – or an impeachment.  There are other ways that the President can get in trouble, too.  In this case, it is called Censure, and the government basically turns its back on the President and says, “Bad! Bad!”.  It is nothing more than an official reprimand by Congress.  This happens a lot more than you’d think.  So far, thirty-two presidents have been threatened with impeachment.  It’s only gone so far to impeach two of them.  Even these decisions are split along party lines: One Republican, one Democrat.  The reason we have impeachment is because Benjamin Franklin did not want our leaders to be assassinated – and we’ve had some really bad leaders.  We always think that the president in office is the worst president ever.  If you believe this, you need to read the list below.
