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"

  read the book: the creature at jeckel island its about the FRB. congress is suppose to print the meney Gov needs to spend. This was given in the constitution so that we would have NO INTEREST on the money Gov had to borrow. We need to cancel the intrest on our national debt . It was against the law for congress to abdicate its athority to print money pres Kennedy was going to fire the Federal Reserve Bank and the FBI just before he was killed. In 1963 Kennedy had already begun to print the new $2.00 bill and it was circulating in the USA prior to his death. I was sick when I listened to "2 page paulson" (I coined that phrase) when he held that 2 1/2 page (ransom note) report ordering congress to give him a signed blank check with no questions asked and no accounting of where he spent it , or the country was going to fall apart.. corporate welfare needs to be stopped. If a company is too big to fail, than its too big... period and should be broken up into smaller entities. I could go on for a week but I would really like for you to tackle this FRB and get our government bills paid with interest free money like its suppose to, and let those private bankers make their money the good old fashioned way. They try to discredit this by saying its a conspiracy theory and hope it will be laughed away, but its time to take this seriously or we are going to lose our country and our way of life. By the way, I loved the ice cream cone that licked itself too. Government needs reforming in a badway before we lose our country. allan
