Overview

Since the Obama administration has taken office, government bureaucracy, government regulation and government spending have exploded. In his new book, Stealing You Blind, author Iain Murray reveals where all that money is going....and just how much of that money goes into the pockets of incompetent government workers, lazy union bosses, inept state educators, and bureaucratic officials. "The administration is swindling us", says Murray. "They promise to use tax payer dollars to give us better healthcare or a stronger financial system, but then use that money to line coffers, create more bureaucratic agencies, and fatten their wallets." Shocking and controversial, Stealing You Blind reveals how Obama and the Left are intent on on feeding government fat cats—and what you can do about it.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Praise for Stealing You Blind

“Where do all your hard-earned tax dollars go? You don’t know the half of it! . . . This must read manual takes you on a maddening tour that starts at Al Gore’s mansion, winds through the ever-expanding empire of Nanny State busybodies in Washington, and dives into bloated municipal payrolls from the Big Apple to Bell, California. Murray outlines imperative reforms to rein in these new robber barons. If you believe public servants should serve the public and not themselves, get this book.”
—Michelle Malkin, Fox News Contributor and author of Culture of Corruption

“A powerful government, the liberal myth goes, places a check on special interests and provides a counterbalance to the power of the wealthy. In truth, government growth instead creates a new class of Robber Barons—handsomely paid ‘public servants’ who soon monetize that service to become obscenely paid revolving-door lobbyists and ‘consultants.’ Recovered bureaucrat Iain Murray paints the unseemly picture of ‘our new leisure class’ in vivid—and often rage-inducing—detail.”
—Tim Carney, author of Obamanomics and Senior Political Columnist, The Washington Examiner

“Iain Murray eviscerates what he calls the new robber barons, the great empire-builders of the public sector. It is a story of greed, arrogance, and power that would make even a domineering nineteenth-century industrialist blush. This isn’t just a smart and entertaining take-down, but a call to action.”
—Rich Lowry, editor of National Review
