Five Things The Government Has Done Right [Infographic]

There is a widespread belief that the American government can’t do anything right and should pretty much stay out of key societal matters. The fact of the matter, however, is that the government has gotten it right on a number of occasions. It was the federal government, for example, that built the interstate highway system. Without interstate highways, inner cities would be more crowded. Higher freight charges would lead to higher prices on products and vacation travel would be restricted. The government got it right when it built the 65,000 miles of highway in the 50 states.

The government has also gotten it right in terms of promoting and protecting public health. In 1906, the Pure Food and Drug Act became the first federal law regulating foods and drugs. The government wisely created the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to combat pollution, protect human health, and preserve the environment. The Vaccines for Children Program was created to provide vaccines to children in low income families.

The government also got it right when it chose to invest in communications, secure our energy supply, and encourage education. Can you think of other ways the government has gotten it right? Please share in the comments and check out the infographic below by BestSocialWorkPrograms.
