The embargo of 1807 reduced the amount of desperately needed foreign goods.

With peace, New England became a textile mill center (Borneman 259). This progression of manufacturing led to a larger middle class, as people found the desire to buy luxury goods for themselves once again, leading to economic enhancement.

For us here in the United States, the focus will be on setting minimum standards across the nation without limiting individuals from buying higher coverage if that is their preference. In addition, individuals and families will be getting higher coverage, better access to treatment and quality health care.
