HeatherTo browse you have to secarh for it. I stumbled through it a week or so ago to find an address when I was lost.I found 2 ways to remove a book. If you go to kindle.amazon.com and log in and browse your books. There's a column for status. Mark the X (remove from my list) and it will drop off next time you are on your account. The second is to hook up to your computer with the usb cable. It will see your kindle as another drive. Go id and delete under kindle then docs.They don't make it too easy, but I still love my Kindle.

Trends & Forces

US Federal Subsidies

Cuts

Due to persistent high Federal spending, deficits, and debt, efforts have been made to reduce wasteful subsidization by intent even though legitimate expenditures may have also been reduced. These Federal legislations are more uncommon than not and have not been repeated recently.

Obamacare

Seemingly due to the enormous length of the legislation, the full extent of the effects of it are not yet fully known; nevertheless, Federal spending on healthcare is the largest percentage by far and has maintained a steady rate of increase.
