America: Who Really Pays the Taxes?

“This is a straight, tough, merciless look at how our tax code favors the rich, rips off the middle class and lets corporate America write its own tax bill.” — Molly Ivins

“This is a book that may require a surgeon general's warning aimed at those prone to fits of violent, uncontrolled anger. Even the most fatalistic of taxpayers who pay the piper with a sigh and a "what-can-you-do?" shrug will find more than a few things in here to place their emotional equilibrium in peril." — Chicago Tribune

“What Barlett and Steele describe is little more than a feudal system where government paid for by the little guy doles out favors to the rich." — San Jose Mercurcy News
