Stealing You Blind

Stealing You Blind

How Government Fat Cats Are Getting Rich Off of You

by Iain Murray

They’re Stealing Us Blind

Remember when we used to call government employees “public servants”? They’re servants no more—now they’re bureaucratic masters of the universe, claiming inflated salaries (up to two times as much as private sector employees) and early retirement with unparalleled pensions and benefits. And how do they spend their time? When they’re actually working, they spin red tape and regulations that make your life harder (and their lives easier), your taxes higher, and your share of the nation’s debt unsustainable.

Like true bureaucrats they like to scurry around in the dark, doing their mischief outside of public scrutiny. But no longer: Iain Murray—author of the rollicking exposé The Really Inconvenient Truths—knows all about bureaucrats and their lairs, because he used to be one himself. In Stealing You Blind he blows the whistle on the out-of-control bureaucracy whose greed could actually tip our country into a financial abyss.

In Stealing You Blind, you’ll discover:

  • Why the wealthiest congressional district in America is in a recession-proof suburb of Washington, D.C.
  • How the Department of Transportation went from having one employee making $170,000 or more to having nearly 1,700 making that much—during the peak of the recession
  • Why even FDR thought federal workers shouldn’t be allowed to unionize
  • How state, local, and federal bankruptcy could be coming your way thanks to public employee union greed
  • Why bureaucrats regard taxpayers as sheep to be shorn—and how they do it
  • Ten steps to fight back and regain control of our government from the parasitic bureaucratic class

Filled with devastating facts about how government workers are living large off the rest of us and driving our country to financial ruin, Stealing You Blind is a rousing call to reclaim our rights as taxpayers and save our economy from the bureaucrats who are choking it to death for their own benefit.
