Re: Government Involvement: Good or Bad?

The government needs to step in when people are abused and injured by the products sold in the marketplace. Yes, many people have been abused and injured by the financial institutions in this country!

 

How can anyone make a statement that all government is bad? That is absolutely ludicrous!

 

Take automobiles as an example, if the government didn't regulate this industry we would still be doing the following:

 

Cars would be getting 10 miles per gallon of gasoline.

We wouldn't have seat belts.

We wouldn't have air bags.

Kids would be riding unrestrained and in the front seats.

Tires would be failing left and right.

We would be losing family members to crashes in unsafe vehicles.
