Description:

In this article, the writer discusses that anyone who doubts the demise of the two-party system in America has only to go back to the beginning of the latest presidential campaign and look closely at the campaigns of the two successful candidates to understand that the separation of political ideologies, which once separated the democratic liberal from the conservative republican, no longer exists. The writer then looks at health care policies according to Barak Obama and John McCain to illustrate why the two party political system in the US is on its way out. The writer concludes that the common denominator for both Obama's and McCain's health care plan is the billion dollar health insurance industry, which will be the single greatest benefactor of either plan, even over the American uninsured.

From the Paper:

''Anyone who doubts the demise of the two-party system in America has only to go back to the beginning of the latest presidential campaign and look closely at the campaigns of the two successful candidates to understand that the separation of political ideologies, which once separated the democratic liberal from the conservative republican, no longer exists. It has never been more obvious than it was in our last election. How do we prove such a powerful statement, and one suggesting a very serious turn in American politics and history? It is done by taking one issue, a large and expensive issue, and examining the elements of the campaign approach, the media follow-up, and especially by identifying what separates the two schools of thought expressed by two candidates - in this case, President Elect Barak Obama, and his challenger during the campaign, Republican Senator from Arizona, John McCaine."
