In the light of the nation's experience over recent decades, has presidency grown too powerful or weak?
Over the many recent decades, that presidency grown too powerful, however, it is the obligation of the American Government to protect the American Citizen. In the Declaration of Independence, it is said that all men must have the right to "life." With this said, the American, has a right to Health Care. Health Care is needed to preserve life, and if it wasn't for the Presidency, we would have gotten no where. An example would be with Social Security, when it first came out, people thought that the Presidency has grown too powerful, however, as we look at it now, we see how valuable to us today. The presidency has grown more powerful, but it is what is necessary to the well being of the American people, it is a human right. This Human Right that was accepted upon in the United Nation, "everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of oneself and one's family including... medical care."
Another example of Health Care, is that is to be considered a right. That people shouldn't suffer if they are sick. The American people shouldn't have to make the choice to lose all their money to medical treatments, so they could stay alive. The President has to take care of the American people, it his job. In the Preamble of the United States Constitution, it that it is the job of the government to "promote the general welfare." When no one is to take initiate, it is the President job to do it.
