In your opinion, what was the worst decision made by US government that didn't benefit people?

On the topic of being suspicious of stories, I often look at the citizen-government relationship as one of good vs evil. I now know that it is wrong to think so simply, but I know there are some moments where our government simply doesn't look out for the well-being of the people, like the constitution says it should.

My example would be the mishandling of the federal reserve. The fed has devalued our money by a significant amount (97%), and I think this is a direct oppression of American people.

I don't know much about our governments history, but I'd love to know if there are instances like these where the people get the short end of the stick.

Also, since most of you probably are thinking it because I said federal reserve, Ron Paul 2012. :)
