Description: Product Description
This text shows in detail how "The System" has corrupted America's political institutions. It takes as an example the Clinton health care initiative - the most ambitious call for US government action since the 1960s. Granted access to closed-door meetings by Bill and Hillary Clinton, Senators Bob Dole, Edward Kennedy and Newt Gingrich amongst others, and using these meetings and the health care plan, the authors give a blow-by-blow destruction of a policy that aimed to please everyone and ended by satisfying no-one due to special interest pressure groups, party political bickering, political gamesmanship and the sheer inertia of the American "system".
