- Last Year, President Clintons State Of The Union Address Came Just As The Monica Lewinsky Scandal Was Exploding Into Public V - 654 words
Last year, President Clintons State of the Union address came just as the Monica Lewinsky scandal was exploding into public view. Clinton nevertheless gave a rousing speech, memorable for his call to save Social Security first. This year, the address came as Clinton stands trial in the Senate. Once again, he avoided any mention of his political troubles, instead stressing that the countrys prosperity must be used to prepare for the burden of a rapidly aging population in the next century. President Clinton addresses certain major topics in the State of the Union addresses each year. The address delivered on January 19, 1999 was about A Stronger 21st Century America. The state of the nation's ...

- Private Pension Plan - 694 words
Private Pension Plan Private Pension System The Current Social Security system should be replaced by a mandatory Private Pension plan. There are different types of investment plans one could choose before or even after they retire. Social Security is what everyone depends on once they retire at 65. Some people may even need to work beyond the age of 65 due to the lack of money they receive from Social Security. With a Pension plan you are insured to receive the money you worked hard for and maybe even a little more, Most pension plans are insured, but some of the smaller pension plans are not covered.(PBGC 1) One disadvantage about Social Security is that there is a limit on how much you can ...

- Should Social Security Be Privatized - 1,965 words
Should Social Security Be Privatized Should Social Security be Privatized? Many people don't understand how the Social Security system really works. There are no separate Social Security accounts set up for each taxpayer to which he contributes his Social Security tax each year. Many people believe these accounts exist, that the money they pay into their accounts grows each year until retirement, and when they retire they get back what they paid in with interest. This is not true. Most people are unaware of the fact that our current Social Security system is a pay-as-you-go program, which means that the revenue the federal government raises each tax year for Social Security benefits is paid ...

- Singapores Economy - 1,208 words
Singapores Economy SINGAPORE - A Survey of its Economic Institutions Since its inception, the Republic of Singapore has combined the fastest growth with the lowest inflation of any industrial economy.

SOCIAL SECURITY PRIVATIZATION Christian De Church Professor Zeck Micro-Economics When President John F. Kennedy said Americans would be the first to walk on the moon, incompetent people said it could not be done. NASAs technology lagged years behind Russias and the Russians never did put a man on the moon. But Neil Armstrongs one small step made the dream reality. When it comes to visionary social policy, beware of those incompetent people who would reject a great plan simply because it means doing something for the first time. Take the farsighted idea of transforming our troubled Social Security system into a system of personal accounts. Conservative estimates show that workers who invested ...

... h care for ten hours each day (Cohn 6). Shortly thereafter, when the assigned nurse was off-duty, there were sudden complications, and the fetus died (Cohn 6). If this was not tragic enough, Ms. Corcoran was then informed that she could not file a suit for damages because of the 1974 Employment Retirement Income Security Act, a federal health benefit regulation which prohibits the filing of pain and suffering lawsuits (Cohn 6). Do HMO members have adequate rights? Unfortunately, in 1998 the House of Representatives rejected a bill that would allow patients or their estates to sue HMOs and other insurers for denial of treatment. But there is much controversy over this issue and several pe ...

Welfare On October 29, 1929, the stock market crashed. The crash sent a shock-wave throughout the economy. Banks failed. Businesses closed. Millions found themselves out of work. The Great Depression, which would last through the 1930s, had begun. [Bill of Rights in Action, Welfare, 1998 pg. 1 paragraph 1] When the Great Depression began, about 18 million elderly, disabled, and single mothers with children already lived at a bare existent level in the United States. State and local governments together with private charities helped these people. By 1933, another 13 million Americans had been thrown out of work.

Who Wins Witherisa David pham #63540197 Writing 39C Proposal Paper 3 June 1999 Who Wins With ERISA? The system of managed care began in the United States in the early 1900s, in an effort to provide coordinated health care in a cost-effective way(Amer. Assoc. of Retired Persons). Until recently, managed care has emerged from the shadows to become the dominant form of health insurance and delivery, succeeding the older fee-for-service program (Zelman and Berenson 2). Today, about 160 million Americans are enrolled in some kind of managed care plan. Managed care has made health care more affordable andmore accessible for Americans. But sometimes cost cutting can lead to lower standards (Clinton ...

... a high-risk pregnancy because of her history with pregnancy-related problems. Taking this into careful consideration, her doctors recommended hospitalization so that the fetus could be monitored as the due date approached, and another obstetrician (who was used for a second opinion) concurred (Pollack). Despite her doctors request, United Healthcare insistently denied the hospitalization, but appointed an in-home nurse to attend Mrs. Corcoran ten hours a day. While the nurse was off duty, the fetus developed complications and died. Mrs. Corcoran and her husband brought their litigation to court, alleging that the MCOs decision not to provide her with the hospitalization caused the death ...
