However, if representatives were to look closely then it would realize that lowering the drinking age would be an extremely huge contribution towards their effort of getting rid of financial problems. According to The National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse, underage drinking accounts for about 17.5 percent of consumer spending in the U.S. That would be about 22.5 billion dollars per year. It would make sense to view that already as a huge amount of money for our economy but if more people were to be allowed to purchase alcohol then it would only boost the revenue even more. Keep in mind that places such as bars, restaurants, and other establishments would also be able to make more profit from the increase in alcohol consumption which would most certainly boost the tax revenue as

In a span of seventeen years, from 1980 to 1997, the number of the incarcerated individuals imprisoned due to non-violent drug offenses increased from forty thousand to five hundred thousand (Drugpolicy.org, n.d.). At the start of the decade only 2% of Americans viewed drugs in America as a major issue, but after only nine years, that number grew to an astonishing 64%. The media and politicians contributed to this meteoric rise in such a short time. Television networks and news programs began to cover the negative side effects of drugs that were ignored during the two previous free living decades.
One of the reasons why Ashes took the $200 was because she loved her dad more. In the article it said, “and I realized he still called me Ashes, where mom couldn’t hear him to be annoyed. And that made me feel special all over again. Mom might never be caught without batteries or tissues, but she just called me Ashleigh - a name she didn’t even like and never promised me anything.”

This is a pivotal scene where Huck ultimately decides that there is no reason Jim shouldn 't be free. I think that he was far enough into the trip with Jim where their bond had grown to be that of either brothers or father and son. This allowed him to think independently with his own memories and emotions, not society 's. He also realizes that his bond with the Widow is insignificant when compared to the love and protection that Jim has provided to Huck. This renouncement appalled me because she provided Huck with a home and education when both of Huck 's parents were absent. Will Huck learn to love the Widow for her generosity after Jim is

It was not looked down upon for him to rescind his love so quickly from a woman who he originally believed to be “the sweetest lady that ever [Claudio] looked on” and ultimately decide she is no longer worthy of his love (1:1:183-184). Claudio can easily rid his mind and heart of a woman who is unloyal in order to find himself a new, more worthy companion. This only works, however, because he is a male. If the same had happened to Hero, she would have been expected, as a result of the gender norms created by society, to remain quiet about the affair and continue with the marriage.
This era would become known as the golden age of the American middle class. During the 1980s, the political winds shifted. Ronald Reagan cut taxes, allowed more private campaign contributions, used republican control of the house and senate to deregulate, and inflated defense spending.
