"Free Lunch: How the Wealthiest Americans Enrich Themselves at YOUR Expense"
Happy Friday, Loserettes!
Did the boss pick up the tab for lunch today? I HOPE so.
Amy Goodman and Juan Gonzalez from Democracy Now interview Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist David Cay Johnston as he discusses his new book, Free Lunch : How the Wealthiest Americans Enrich Themselves at Government Expense (And Stick “You” with the Bill).
Johnston reveals how government subsidies and new regulations have quietly funneled money from the poor and the middle class to the rich and politically connected.
Like frogs sitting in a pot of slowly boiling water, I’d say the sheeple are “quietly” down with that. And if the GOP is the party of Big Daddy, then the Democrats are the party of Big Pimps.
