Crapitalism Liberals who make millions swiping your tax dollars

Jason Mattera

Book - 2014

"New York Times bestselling author and ambush journalist Jason Mattera sets his sights on his next big target: crony liberals, including Al Gore, Carlos Slim, Harry Reid, and Jay Z, whose riches come at taxpayer expense. From billionaire business tycoons like George Soros and Warren Buffett to movie industry moguls like Jeffrey Katzenberg and Stephen Spielberg, American liberals are using government breaks and shortcuts to pervert the free market. These "rich bastards" leverage cr...ony connections to bag millions for phony "green companies" that go bust, vacuum public coffers to build glitzy stadiums, utilize little-known tax loopholes to loot $1.5 billion for Hollywood movies, and more. They use government to rig the game in their favor and leave taxpayers holding the bill. And when government gets in the business of picking winners and losers through bailouts and tax breaks, free market competition begins to atrophy. That's what big government leftists--and corporate Republicans-in-name-only--want to happen. In this explosive, funny-as-hell investigative expose;, Mattera reveals the infuriating schemes that result when the filthy rich combine cronyism and capitalism. Crapitalism pulls back the curtain on a cast of cronyites who make millions taking advantage of taxpayers--and still brag about how they're looking out for the little guy"--

Review by Publisher Summary 5

Mattera, an author of conservative books and a conservative watchdog website, claims that liberals have been making millions from American tax dollars by doing such things as taking tax dollars for green energy companies that fail, building sports stadiums, and using tax credit loopholes for movies. In this harshly-worded book, he pointedly critiques specific liberals, calling them “crooks,” and judging the “loony” ideas and efforts of Representative Greg Meeks, Representative Maxine Waters, Terry McAuliffe, Mike Ilitch, Chris Dodd, Chuck Swoboda, Vinod Khosla, Neil Bluhm, Jay-Z, George Kaiser, Sally Susman, Steven Spielberg, Jeffrey Katzenberg, Ronald Perelman, Al Gore, Zygi Wolf, Tom Steyer, James Sinegal, Warren Buffett, Jeffrey Immelt, John Podesta, Harry Reid, Fred Hochberg, George Soros John Doerr, Elon Musk, and Carlos Slim.
