James Bovard is no fan of Big Government in the US and under the Clinton-Gore administration. In his new book, Bovard looks at Clinton and Gore's record on such abuses and absurdities as taxes, gun control, the Waco fiasco, AmeriCorps, and federal funding of every program from those dealing with disaster relief to those that put on puppet shows in Northern California. He looks at Hillary Clinton's informal role in the government, as well as Newt Gingrich's poor stewardship of the Republican party in its quest for a leaner federal government. In the style that made Lost Rights a classic, Bovard takes us on a sentimental journey through the last eight years. It's a trip no one will want to miss.
