Free Lunch: How the Wealthiest Americans Enrich themselves at Government Expense (and Stick You with the Bill), by David Cay Johnston

Subsides, tax preferences, protective regulations, eminent domain–this book delivers just what the title says, and if you’re not part of Johnston’s “wealthiest,” it’s likely to make you mad. A Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter, Johnston’s contention is that the important political dichotomy is not between Republicans and Democrats, but between Washington “corporatists” and those few politicians, investigators and whistle-blowers who look out for the public interest. A follow-up to his earlier tales of greed, Perfectly Legal: The Covert Campaign to Rig Our Tax System to Benefit the Super-Rich–and Cheat Everyone Else.
