"Feeling Your Pain": The Explosion and Abuse of Government Power in the Clinton-Gore Years

Front Cover
St. Martin's Press, 2000 - Political Science - 426 pages
James Bovard is no fan of Big Government and under the last administration it grew unhindered. In "feeling your pain", Bovard looks back at the Clinton-Gore record on such abuses and absurdities as taxes, gun control, the Waco fiasco, Americorps, and federal funding of everything from programs dealing with disaster relief to puppet shows in Northern California. He looks at Hillary Clinton and her new role as New York's Senator Clinton. He also provides a fitting coda to the last eight years as he looks at the pardons, protections, and downright nincom-poopery of Clinton's last days. In the style that made Lost Rights a classic, Bovard sums up Clinton's presidency in a book that belongs on every American's bookshelf.
