This Will Make Your Blood Boil
You may have heard there's no such thing as a free lunch, but David Cay Johnston says there is — and wealthy Americans do get richer because of it. In an April 14, 2008 speech at the Commonwealth Club of California, Johnston, a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter and author of "Free Lunch," outlines how government-private sector collusion affects the middle class and the poor.
This is more than a Conservative/Progressive/Libertarian politics question, but something that cuts to the fabric of who we are in the United States. All Johnston's information is from public sources, mostly government documents.
