In these hyper-partisan times, our reports on federal spending abuses are bringing people together.

MEDIA COVERAGE- Fortune 100 Companies

Report details $1.2 trillion (2000-2012) flowing from DC to Fortune 100...

Stephen Moore, Chief Economist at Heritage Foundation, writing in Investor's Business Daily and National Review called the Fortune 100 "welfare queens." Aaron Cantu at Alternet and Truth-Out  called the federal spending "shocking," "whooping," and described it as..."the great suckling."

Reagan's Budget Director, David Stockman posted a column and tweeted, "Stop Welfare At The Top: Fortune 100 Got $1.2 Trillion of Crony Capitalist Subsidies." Stockman laments, "So what happened to the Gipper's crusade against Big Government? Read and weep."

 At Zero Hedge, Michael Krieger wrote, "A First Look at New Report on Crony Capitalism: Trillions in Corporate Welfare"

Listen to my radio interview on The Tom Roten Morning Show, WVHU, West Virginia regarding National Audubon Society "lamb slaughter subsidies" and millions to a set of Chicago Duck charities.
