Summary

GANGSTER GOVERNMENT---Columnist Michael Barone invented the phrase. President Obama has perfected the practice. And in this new and stunning book, New York Times bestselling author David Freddoso, The Case Against Barack Obama, provides the much-needed expos of an administration that has brought Chicago-style corruption and strong-arm politics to Washington, looking to reward its friends (the unions, federal workers, and other liberal interest groups) and punish its enemies (the private sector workers and taxpayers who foot the bill for Obama's massive expansion of the federal government). In Gangster Government, you'll learn, among other shocking revelations: How the Obama administration has used czars and recess appointments to install powerful bureaucrats, some with extreme views and shady pasts, without congressional oversight. How the Obama administration ignored the Constitution and reversed 100 years of bankruptcy law to reward its friends (the United Autoworkers) in the GM and Chrysler bailout. Why even the pretense of cutting costs in Obamacare came second to rewarding the Democrat-supporting trial lawyers' lobby. Why, ignoring federal law, the Obama administration is trying to shield the TSA workers who search passengers at airports from private sector competition. How the trillion dollar "stimulus" was directed overwhelmingly at protecting government workers supported by the taxpayers. Why green jobs are all about shaking down the taxpayer for favored businesses, not about truly sustainable energy or jobs. How the Obama administration bullies private businesses and even state governments that don't cooperate with gangster government. Gangster Government is a devastating and revealing look at the momentous first two years of the Obama administration and its subversion of our Constitution and laws. It casts a hard look at a president whose training on Chicago's political playground shines through every bent law and every broken promise.
