How many times did I give that speech during the NAFTA debate? The only way a rich country grows richer is to find more people who buy its products and services. In America we have millions of people who don’t buy our products and services, because we have not invested in them and their potential and created the conditions in which they can succeed. So that is what this is all about. (Clinton 1994) 9 If Baltimore for example wanted to give teenage single mothers more benefits given the particular burden they have to face in taking care of their children, they can only do so if they either withhold benefits from another potential beneficiary group or if they suffer penalties from either the State of Maryland, the federal government, or both.

And Christ came to set us free from all forms of slavery.
