Whistle-blower Exposes Government in New Book
The Watergate scandal and President Nixon's administration's attempted cover-up of its involvement is one of the most well-known scandals of President Richard Nixon's time in office. However, authors Joy Garrison Cauffman and Ronald L. Linder want readers to know it wasn't the only scam to occur during President Nixon's tenure.
"A Forty-Year Retrospective of President Nixon's Committee on Health Education: A Whistle-Blower's Diary" (published by iUniverse) is written by Cauffman and Linder, both members of the Presidential Committee on Health Education, which was commissioned by President Nixon in 1971. In this new book, Cauffman and Linder explain that the committee's outcome was predetermined long before it even met.
"Without this book," writes Linder, who was an alternate member of the committee, "few decision makers would even know what actually took place in this Presidential Committee on Health Education."
Though the committee was established to address health care costs, Cauffman and Linder saw very little discussion. Instead, they allege that the committee was a front. They say that the committee was a political tool for President Nixon to use to push his political agenda. They say the testimonies of healthcare educators were silenced and ignored and when Cauffman tried to speak out, they say she was threatened by President Nixon's representatives.
Both Cauffman and Linder are dedicated to bringing to light the problems facing the healthcare system and giving direction on how to go about fixing them.
