There are hopes to reform the US (such as the Health Care Reform) in order to better suit the needs of citizens. We are at an all time high unemployment rate and have a ration of 1 in 7 homes without adequate food. Occupy Wallstreet made public the most popular statistic- 99% of the wealth goes to 1% of the population... creating the slogan for the common man "We are the 99%".

Upcoming generations are showing rebellion against the US's governmental practices. In order to avoid such a situation and "better the nation", reforms are created to provide a better system for the citizens.
