"If awards were given for informed bravery, James Bennett would be on the short list for one. His Tax-Funded Politics exposes the greed and political corruption running rampant in the most sacred of America's sacred cows. His eye-opening chapter on "Heart, Lungs, and the Big C" is worth the price of the book by itself. I cannot think of a better cure for gullibility than Tax-Funded Politics."
—Dwight Lee, Ramsey Professor of Economics, Terry College of Business, University of Georgia
"Government spending almost always is a waste of money, but it adds insult to injury when our tax dollars are given to organizations that lobby for even bigger government. If Professor Bennett's book, [Tax-Funded Politics] doesn't get your blood boiling, nothing will."
—Edwin J. Feulner, Ph.D., President, The Heritage Foundation
"The founding fathers hoped that the Constitution would control "the violence of faction," by which they meant special-interest politics. But government has not only failed to restrain the plundering of taxpayers by special interests; it subsidizes it. In Tax-Funded Politics James T. Bennett exposes this illegal racket, chapter and verse. With meticulous documentation and a fiery writing style, Bennett shows how government fuels its own growth by subsidizing the statist side of every political debate, from abortion to zoning. And it is not just interest groups of the left that feed at the federal tax trough. With the ascendency of the Republicans in Washington has come tax-funded, big-government "neoconservativism." Read Tax-Funded Politics and find out what is really wrong with Washington."
—Thomas J. DiLorenzo, Professor of Economics, Loyola College in Maryland and author of The Real Lincoln (Crown Forum, 2003)
