Bill clinton and his many problems

Bill Clinton and His Many Problems

William Jefferson Clinton was re-elected as president of the United States in

1996. During the last 4 years Bill has had a lot of problems e.g. Whitewater and

sex-scandals. Whitewater is a summerhouse-area where Bill and especially his

wife, Hillary, a couple of years ago, made some suspicious money-transactions.

Right now the case against Hillary Clinton is pau¬ sed, but the judge thinks a

breakthrough might come if a good friend of Hillary and Bill is proved guilty.

If he is judged it will be a lot easier to get the Clintons. And now to the

sex-scandals; a young girl is right now trying to win a case against Bill

Clinton. She claims that the president, when he was governor in Arkansore, came

to a hotel where she was a waitress or something like that. He should then have

asked her to come to his room later that day. When she arrived he tried to force

her to have sex with him. He should also have showed her his thing. She turned

him down and he gave up and said that she should forget all about this. That is

what she has told, we are still waiting to hear Bill Clinton's statement.

Another big problem to Bill is that he has been unable to fulfil those very big

promises he gave during his election campaign in 1992. That has given his

credibility and the polls a big push down. One of his promises was his health

program, the purpose of this was to give people with not so many money a chance

to get treated at a hospital. In US you are supposed to pay hospital-bills

yourself. It is something like our public health insurance where the government

pays for the ho¬ spitals. In US it is a problem that the poor can not afford the

medicine and therefore they sometimes do not get any. This healthprogram was

unfortunately voted down by the republican majority in the Congress

The US government has also an extreme materialistic way of getting people in

work and thereby holding down the unemployment. They simply only give the

unemployed a minimum of benefit and they only get it in a very short time. The

unemployed are therefore forced to find a job, no matter what they have to do.

This policy has also its good sides; the unemployment is very low, the salaries

are low and therefore the competitive power is good. Unfortunately for the

Americans it has not done anything good for the balance of payments, they still

owe a lot of money to different countries and banks. This policy has been

sharpened during Clintons presidential period. This is especially a problem for

the blacks that live in the high-unemployment-ghettos.

This brings us to another big problem in the American society; the violence. In

US the control with weapons is very loose, and everybody can walk into a gunshop

and buy their own weapon. Because of that there are a lot of guns, and the

criminals are defiantly not afraid of using them. Because of all this criminals

having weapons, ordinary people feel that they must own a weapon. All these

ordinary people prevent that a better weapon law has been made.

In the worst areas even the school kids have guns and they bring them to school.

Some schools have therefore installed metal detectors to find some of the
