Probably something you don't know, Mutley!

When you say "the government", you have to realize that individual states are the ones in the US that issue birth certificates, so this is a state-specific thing.
So, your question really pertains to a specific state that you haven't specified.
What state are you in? In California, my short birth certificate shows my parents names. The long form has a lot more medical information on it and takes more prof of identity to get a copy of. A short-form certificate given at birth is basically like a receipt, it's quick to create with minimum information by the relevant official present. In some instances in the past at least it may not even reflect the information given on the main registration. Sounds like a lot, unless you're ordering on a fast-track service or something.
The documents are inevitably required these days, and Register Offices do take time and resource to process certificates locating the details provided for the original or most recent registration, transferring the registration to a certified certificate and all assorted administrative sundry so the fee is not really exorbitant. I don't think I have a long-form birth certificate.
