Free Lunches, Sports Stadiums & Ronald Reagan

Amy Goodman and Juan Gonzales at Democracy Now! just posted an interesting interview with the New York Times' David Cay Johnston. The Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist just published "Free Lunch: How the Wealthiest Americans Enrich Themselves at Government Expense (And Stick You with the Bill)."

Johnston's contention is that American policies and programs have taken money from the pockets of the poor and the middle class and upper middle class and funneled it to the wealthiest people in America. In examining this, he highlights the subsidizing of sports teams, eminent domain, big box stores and Ronald Reagan.
