The Affordable Care Act that isn’t affordable and has raised health insurance rates and the cost of healthcare.
The Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act, designed to improve food labeling but which actually bans states from enacting their own GMO labeling requirements, thus keeping food labels inaccurate.
The USA Patriot Act, a major post-9/11 bill that redefined “patriotism” as massive unconstitutional government surveillance and intrusion.
And so on.
Throughout our recent history, there are a number of examples where Congress and the Executive Branch have proposed or passed legislation that, in practice, does exactly the opposite of what elected officials said it would do, in direct contradiction of their titles.
The same is true of the federal bureaucracy: There are innumerable examples of federal agencies performing tasks and undertaking missions that are diametrically opposite of their founding purpose.
Consider these examples:
— EPA polluting rivers: The EPA recently caused over 3 millions gallons of toxic waste to spill into Colorado’s Animas River while “cleaning up” the Gold King Mine near Silverton, CO. A local retired geologist predicted that the EPA would actually cause a massive toxic spill in order to secure federal funding for a “Superfund” site. And that is exactly what happened, and is happening.
