The solutions offered by the Department of Veterans as of today some of them are working others need some improvement. For example, they have 30 openings in which 20 of them are a combination of nurses and specialty doctors. The partnerships between VA and the public sector increase access to care and better serve veterans, but red tape slow the process. The Minute Clinic in which veterans can be served the same day using the Veterans Choice Program to treat minor illnesses and injuries, is a quick solution to the problem. Tri West Health Care Alliance, a Phoenix-based company, is expanding their services to all the community for veteran’s patients, this can minimize the time veterans have to wait for an appointment.
In fact, it was later discovered that the statement was a fabrication, rather than data. Therefore, although the aberrational statement caused alarm and possibly fear, it was not reliable evidence as to the actual number of homeless people in America. However, this would deem conventional wisdom since it was an easy and impactful number expressed to alarm all Americans. Finally, women’s rights activists also use conventional wisdom to gain support. According to Freakonomics, “Women’s rights advocates, for instance, have hyped the incidence of sexual assault, claiming that one in three American women will in her lifetime be a victim of rape or attempted rape.” Freakonomics discloses that the figure is actually an estimated one in eight, but “advocates know that it would take a callous person to publicly dispute their claims.” In other words, the activists exploit people’s moral and social incentives to gain importance and attention while simultaneously eliminating opposition.
It was also reported, by ABC News, that there was evidence that Nussbaum had utilized cocaine during her time of caring for the child (Journey to Tragedy, 2005). Specific details regarding the usage were not provided; however, the fact that she used cocaine before calling 911 is not well perceived or accepted. There were also many incidents in which Nussbaum covered up for Joel Steinberg, her live-in partner, to protect him from going to jail (Journey to Tragedy, 2005). During medical examinations due to abusive injuries, she would provide false information regarding the nature of the injuries. If she could have found the courage to tell the truth, it could have changed everything.
Even if she did not have the power to change laws, she could use her symbolic post as the first lady. Her foundation allowed her to make personal contributions by creating schools, hospitals, and women's residences. Thousands were directly benefited and even more, were given hope (Hedges 5). A majority of work to help the poor was done by the María Eva Duarte de Perón Welfare Foundation. Thanks to finance contributions, the foundation was able to distribute multiple different necessary items: food, clothes, money and medicine.
For a majority of enrollees with lower incomes, the federal subsidies make the premiums more affordable. For those even closer to the poverty line, they can receive additional subsidies that reduce the deductibles even more. But for many middle class families that earn an average income of $97,000 for a family of four, the health coverage premiums and deductibles have sky-rocketed (Luhby). This is causing a huge amount of Americans opting to stay uninsured, rather than spend thousands a year. According to a Kaiser study, 46% of uninsured adults tried to get coverage but did not because it was too expensive (Luhby, 2017).
Inkblots are spots that vary in shapes, sizes, and color. Psychologist say the interpretation of inkblots can detect a person’s personality, characteristics and emotional functioning. Even though this has yet to be proven, Psychologist still believe this is an accurate way to assign a diagnosis, or change how a therapist understands a client. In an article by Damion Searls, a psychologist gave a Rorschach test to a suspicious potential employee named Norris. Norris’ answers were extremely shocking, the article described what he saw as ‘violent sexual scenes with children; parts of the inkblots seen as females being punished or destroyed.’ The Rorschach test revealed a side of Norris he did not want to others to see.
Forty two other states have introduced similar legislation since 2004, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. Texas State Sen. Leticia Van de Putte encouraged her fellow lawmakers to evolve better support for the victims.

"I believe that the work [Planned Parenthood is] doing in taking back control of our individual bodies, of declaring reproductive freedom to be a fundamental human right, is at least as important as freedom of speech or freedom of assembly." -Gloria Steinem For over 100 years Planned Parenthood has been a vital aspect of health care for the American population. Contraception given, implanted, and educated about is a main service provided by Planned Parenthood. Although oblivious to many people, Planned Parenthood provides a large amount of services for both men and women. When Planned Parenthood is mentioned, most people immediately think of abortion, however, abortion only takes up 3% of all healthcare provided by the nonprofit organization.

After World War II, the United States acquired a massive economic boost, which allowed for health care in America to be born. This system allowed for health insurance to be provided by the employer, and as a result, health care became extremely valuable to companies and workers. A single dollar in health benefits was worth significantly more than a dollar in wages due to non-taxable aspect of health insurance. Decades later, the government loses millions of dollars a year from not taxing health insurance. Today, so many families are unable to afford quality health insurance or their health insurance does not cover their needs.
There has to be some type of insurance that is affordable for every person that provides them with at least the minimum benefits. Some health benefits are better than none at all. This will give people a higher expectancy of living a longer life, as oppose to somebody who has no medical coverage. Our lack of universal coverage has consequences. According to government and private studies, about 22,000 of our fellow Americans die each year of treatable diseases because they lack insurance and can’t afford a doctor.
It has become one of America’s most trusted clinics for reproductive care. Not only does it help with reproductive care, but it provides other affordable options for women, men, and teens. According to Jonathan Salant of the New Jersey Advance Media reported, “In a CBS News/New York Times survey, 55 percent supported funding the group while 36 percent opposed it”. Majority of the surveyors against funding were worried of another potential government shutdown.
