The federal government now controls 30% of the U.S. economy, thanks to billion-dollar bailouts of insurance companies, banks, Wall Street firms, and the auto industry.
How did the freest economy in the world come to this?
In his shocking exposé, Obamanomics, investigative reporter Tim Carney reveals how Big Government partnered with Big Business and Big Labor to cover up failure—and squash small business.
From conspiring with the healthcare industry to cutting sweetheart deals with corporate cronies and union boss buddies, the Obama administration is working hand-in-hand with Big Business to line Wall Street's pockets, gain more power, and crush tax payers.
