President Clinton’s second term has so far lacked vision and a clear direction. This is quite disheartening when you remember that only four years ago he promised Americans a bigger government and a nationalized medical care system.

In addition, I administered a Medicaid program and was the ever-diligent administrator of an HMO.

Since President Nixon established the Environmental Protection Agency in 1968 to investigate pollution, the agency has become large, bureaucratic, and abusive, and now has the power to control the life and property of every citizen. As the author notes, “Today, there is not a man, woman or child in America whose life is not in danger of being destroyed by some government agency that has declared an action of theirs to be in violation of some regulation.”(1)
