Publisher Comments:

The runaway New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times, Washington Post, and USA Today bestseller!

The facts

At least 50 of the 425 terrorists released from Guantánamo have returned to the battlefield to fight our troops.

Barack Obama has called for $1 trillion in tax increases over the next ten years—and dressed them up as tax cuts!

Up to a quarter of all state pension funds in the United States are invested in companies that are helping Iran, Syria, North Korea, or the Sudan—for a total of nearly $200 billion.

Big business, big government, big labor, big lobbyists, and their self-serving agendas are doing nothing to help the ever-increasing number of American people who are losing their homes and their jobs.

In this hard-hitting call to arms, Dick Morris and Eileen McGann reveal the hundreds of ways American taxpayers are routinely fleeced—by our own government, by foreign countries, by Washington lobbying firms, by hedge-fund billionaires, and by the president himself—and offer practical agendas we all can follow to help turn the tide.

Synopsis:

The runaway bestseller that exposes the villains who have hijacked Wall Street and Washington is now available in paperback.

Synopsis:

Following in the footsteps of Throw Them All Out, another work of investigative reporting from Peter Schweizer and the Government Accountability Institute, blowing the lid off an even bigger part of the Washington system.

Synopsis:

and#160;A major new expose of financial outrages in Washington, by the best-selling author and investigative journalist.

Synopsis:

A bombshell investigation reveals how Washington really works: politicians extort money from us, then use it to buy each otherand#8217;s votes. Best-selling author Peter Schweizer reveals: *Obamaand#8217;s "Protection Money": How the Obama Administration targeted industries for criminal investigation but chose not to pursue key political donors. *John Boehnerand#8217;s "Tollbooth": How the Speaker of the House extracts money by soliciting political donations before he will hold crucial votes on the House floor. *The "Slush Fund": How politicians extract "campaign contributions" and then convert them to bankroll lavish lifestyles complete with limos, private jets, golf at five-star resorts, fine wines, and cash for family members. *Capitol Hilland#8217;s "Underground Economy": How congressmen use a little-known loophole that allows them to secretly link their votes to cash. Extortion finally makes clear why Congress is so dysfunctional: itand#8217;s all about making money, not making law.

Synopsis:

Washington is no longer about lawmaking, itand#8217;s about moneymaking

Conventional wisdom holds that Washington is broken because outside special interests bribe politicians. The reverse is true: politicians have developed a new set of brass-knuckle legislative tactics designed to extort wealthy industries and donors into forking over big donations and#8212; cash that lawmakers often funnel into the pockets of their friends and family.

Inside this best-selling bombshell of a book, Schweizer reveals the exorbitant secret and#8220;feesand#8221; each political party charges politicians for top committee assignments; how fourteen members of Congress bagged hundreds of thousands of dollars using a little-known self-loan loophole; how politicians use PACs to bankroll lavish lifestyles; and much more. Washingtonand#8217;s extortion racket has gone unreported and#8212; until now.
