This article provides keen insight into the ramifications of the Obama healthcare plan, as well as the shortcomings in fulfilling the promises that most Americans relied upon, that increased their hopes that the changes that were necessary for this country would come into fruition. This article starts out by settinng the stage as to the immense expectations that Americans had in reference to the election of Obama as president of the United States, as well as the paradigm changes that most Americans thought would take place upon the individual's election. It also points out that although history was made by the election of the first African-American president, and this in and of itself was groundbreaking for our nation, there was a greater level of expectation for dynamic incremental changes that were needed in order to make this nation much more fulfilling of its promise of prosperity and the pursuit of happiness for all individuals that are willing to work hard in the pursuit of their dreams.

This article alludes to the fact that the rich and powerful individuals within this nation have such a powerful capability to influence the Congress and other areas of the government, that it will be very difficult for Obama or any other president to implement the changes that he would like to, in order to help the people of this nation. The overwhelming power of the wealthy elite within this nation, is exacerbated by their ability to financially influence the decisions of the members of the Congress and Senate of this nation, which usually takes the form of campaign contributions that help many of these individuals to run for office, and requires that these individuals appease their constituents in order to maintain their ...
