Inhaltsangabe: Martin L. Gross digs far beneath the waste of tax money by the government to uncover the startling, but undeniable truth: The core of government is rotten, and we are being strangled by
-- tax laws that destroy the middle class
-- the two-party dictatorship
-- power-made Washington
-- a bloated and indifferent Congress, and more.
Scathingly honest and crammed with investigative reporting, no thoughtful, concerned American will want to ignore its warnings.
From Booklist: Just the other day, Peter G. Peterson (Facing Up ) of Rudman and Tsongas' Concord Coalition told us how to balance the budget and quash the deficit by raising taxes and trimming entitlements (Social Security, Medicare, etc.). Then Rush Limbaugh (See, I Told You So ) enjoined us to be of good cheer, for less government and lower taxes are possible. If you love Limbaugh and grant that Peterson's goals are good, you'll worship Martin L. Gross. As upbeat as Limbaugh, he says we can make the U.S. solvent again without either higher taxes or fewer breaks for middle-class taxpayers. All we have to do is trim Washington's fat, examples of which made Gross' Government Racket (1992) a laugh-to-keep-from-crying best-seller. In this follow-up, Gross takes on one syndrome of Washington waste after another, from the kind of pork-barrel projects he lambasted last year through chronic sinkholes like welfare to root problems such as lobbying and misguided immigration policies. For each money trap, he advances a list of amelioratory measures ranging from new legislation and constitutional amendments to consolidation of similar tasks (welfare is now dispensed by six cabinet-level agencies and several sub-cabinet ones) and cutting the federal workforce by simple attrition. This book's so full of fetching notions and spirited argument that you want to send it to all your political representatives along with a little note reading, "I'm your constituent--get with this program!"
