You can’t have skeletons in the closet if you want to be the Commander in Chief of the U.S. Armed Forces. As Election Day draws near, I imagine that both McCain and Obama are exhausted; both have been run through the ringer. After all, they must endure non-stop campaigning schedules, high pressure debates, and the constant scrutiny of the press. Along with this, every aspect of their lives are being examined under the most powerful of microscopes. From tax records to religious affiliations to personal friendships, both men are left bare, no secrets uncovered.
In the last presidential debate there were only a few zingers. One came from John McCain who, after Barack Obama compared him to G. W. Bush, emphatically stated, "If you wanted to run against President Bush, you should have run four years ago." Since the debate Obama’s running mate, Joe Biden, responded to McCain’s implications with, "If it walks like a duck, if it looks like a duck and it quacks like a duck, it’s a duck!"
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 was officiated so that people with disabilities may continue to work, play and participate in day-to-day tasks and activities. It states that no employer may discriminate amongst or terminate employees based on a physical or mental impairment when they are capable of performing the job with or without reasonable modifications. Employers are responsible for maintaining the security of his employees’ job functions, and also for workspace modifications if they are within acceptable financial and location criteria.
Most Americans are willing to pay higher taxes to make health care reform possible, but, like politicians, they disagree about what reforms should take place. Should the government mandate a health care plan or should insurance carriers do a better job of providing coverage? The Democrats, led by Presidential candidate Senator Barack Obama, plan to rely on a “play or pay” system that would improve access to insurance and move the United States toward universal coverage.
