(UNEDITED)Mr. Jay Abrose, in a recent featured editorial, wrote an article titled "Government good intentions rarely turn out good". A popular idea that rouses many to action. The only problem is that he is wrong. The idea that everything that government does is bad and of no benefit to society defies what we see in front of us every day. Think about this the next time you drive from Salt Lake to St. George on interstate I-15, a part of a great interstate highway system, buitl with federal and state monies. Consider Mr. Ambrose when you take your LIpitor in the morning to cut your risk of heart attack. You aren't likely to die and your drug will likely reduce your cholesterol. I'm sure the drug companies would have done all the testing necessary to produce a safe drug on their own, without FDA guidelines. When you snowbirds go to Arizona this winter think about the evils of federal programs as you drive across Hoover Dam or the Glenn Canyon Dam. Those were built with federal money, decades ago, and are still producing electricity and storing water. Come to think of it, when you snowbirds get sick this winter and go to the doctor or hospital, consider what you would do without medicare, a federal program. Would ANY insurance company insure you at your age for ANY price. but not to worry, medicare will insure you.
