"As the Bush administration comes to an end, the federal government is not functioning as it should. Just how bad is this government dysfunction? In an effort to answer that question, the Center for Public Integrity embarked on Broken Government, an examination of the worst systematic failures of the executive branch over the past eight years.
Broken Government documents more than 125 examples of government breakdown in areas as diverse as education, energy, the environment, justice and security, the military and veterans affairs, health care, transportation, financial management, consumer and worker safety, and more — failures which adversely affected ordinary people and made the nation a less open or less secure place to live.
Want to read more about these widespread failures and how they affect you? Here’s what you can do to learn more:
- Visit the website to search our database of government failures by category, agency, or view a full list;
- Suggest additional failures so we can continue this project in January 2009, as well as begin the process of holding the new administration accountable;
- Pass it on - let others know that Broken Government is now available online;
- Make a contribution to support this project and help us continue our critical work!
This is just the first step of this groundbreaking project. Keep an eye out for more information from the Center for Public Integrity as we continue our investigation throughout 2009 into what it will take to repair and renew the nation’s government.
