The Great Society was a war on poverty and was led by Lyndon B Johnson. There were several things involved in the Great Society : Higher Education Act which allowed more students to attend college from things such as Pell Grants and loans, etc. It also included the Water Quality Act which started the testing of water for pollutants and bacteria in the water. The Air Quality Act also set standards for industrial and auto emissions. The Civil Rights Act outlawed segregation in all public places and facilities. Elementary and Secondary Education Act (1965) wanted federal money to be given to bring all schools up to a code and for all schools to have the same quality education. The money was also used for libraries and new technology, special education, adult education, etc. The Medical Care Act (1965) was a compulsory system. Each pay check was docked to provide medical care for the elderly and the young. The National Endowment For the Arts and Humanities promoted creativity; PBS was born from this program The Model Cities Act (1966) made it so the cities could apply for federal aid to clean up slums Head Start programs as well as CAP and VISTA was also created.

Asked in Lyndon B. Johnson

Did Lyndon B. Johnson profit financially from the Vietnam War?

User Avatar
No, and he even lost his job because of the Vietnam War. I am not sure that the above answer is accurate but I can't prove it. Johnson was a sneaky, back slapping, glad handing, backroom politician. For years I heard that he had family connections to Bell Helicopters. If that was true he profited each time the VC shot one down and they shot hundreds of them down. Jackie Kennedy revealed on her deathbed that she believed Johnson was behind her husband's execution. He did not lose his job. He chose not to run in 1968. He basically quit. Kennedy was considering getting out of Viet-Nam after the 1964 pres. election. He was killed in 1963. Johnson took over as Vice then won the 1964 election by presenting himself as the peace candidate and smearing his opponet Goldwater as a war-monger. In 1965 Johnson massively expanded the Viet-Nam war after the Tokin Gulf resolution.
