The "Government Knows Best" act satirizes the controversial 2001 legislation, the Patriot Act, aimed at fighting terrorism in the United States and abroad. It is mentioned in Bart-Mangled Banner when The Simpsons are arrested. Bill Clinton, Michael Moore, The Dixie Chicks, and Elmo were also jailed under this act.
This act is criticized as right-wing law that spies on people. This act was sponsored by corporate businessman Charles Montgomery Burns.
