Half of all illegal immigrants came into this country legally--and we have no way of knowing whether they're still here. Congressmen are putting their wives on their campaign payrolls--so that campaign contributions are really personal bribes. The ACLU won't allow its own directors free speech. Liberals want to strip us of the tools to stop terrorism. The UN is a cover for massive corruption--and eighty countries, who pay 12 percent of the budget, are blocking reform. Drug companies pay off doctors to write prescriptions--whether we need them or not. Teachers' unions block the firing of bad teachers--and battle against higher education standards. Katrina victims are being stiffed by their insurance companies. Special interests cost our consumers $45 billion--through trade quotas that save only a handful of jobs. Never heard of these abuses? That's why Morris and McGann wrote this book.--From publisher description.… (mer)

He is spot-on throughout the book. What struck me over and over again was how the relationship of lobbyists and congress is at the heart of much political corruption. He is good at skewering both the Democrats and Republicans. The one area I really disagreed with him on was his opinion of Bankruptcy Reform, which he found draconian. He said that most bankruptcies are due to medical bills...which might be true. I honestly don't know. But then later in that chapter, he said that most were due to credit-card debt...which might also be true. My guess is that it is a combination of irresponsible use of credit cards and a catastrophic life event. The point is, people should not be excused for being irresponsible idiots. But credit card companies who send out applications to everybody in the phone book, and intentionally target those who they think will wind up paying late fees, overcharges, etc. should also be held accountable. Those companies are equally irresponsible.

Don't get me started. ( )

Generally I steer clear of "political" books. This is, however, a very easy read and a good review of things you already knew. He names names and that is refreshing as well. ( )
