The article focuses on political issues related to the U.S. In Canada every child is getting the Salk vaccine without any fuss, and the government, is paying the bill. Practically every type of social legislation which conservatives in the U.S. say would bankrupt the country is in, vogue in Canada. The result is that Canada's dollar sells at a slight premium over the U.S. dollar. Every administration effort to defend the chaotic security program breaks down on one fact stressed by former, solicitor general Philip Perlman, that under it public official Wolf Ladejinsky is a security risk to the Agriculture Department.
