In his New York Times bestselling expose The Government Racket, social critic and reformer Martin L. Gross blew the whistle on the catastrophically wasteful financial practices of our elected officials. As we enter a new millennium, he returns to the scene of the crime to find that things have gotten even worse. Welfare subsidies to the poor -- to the tune of $367 billion -- are being wastefully mishandled by 81 separate government agencies. Congressmen and women accept millions of dollars worth of "perks" as their voter-given "rights." Cover-up accounting techniques are routinely employed. And "special" loans are being doled out from our dwindling Social Security fund. Reform is possible -- is, in fact, essential -- but only if we heed Mr. Gross' timely warnings and advice. Because, if the government beast is allowed to rampage on unchecked, we will all be stuck with bill -- and we won't have the money to pay it.
