From veteran politician Mike Lofgren, a funny and impassioned exposé of what passes for business as usual in Washington today.
Mike Lofgren spent twenty-eight years working in Congress, the last sixteen as a senior analyst on the House and Senate Budget committees. He has written about politics, budgets and national security issues for the Los Angeles Times, Washington Monthly, Truthout and Counterpunch. The recipient of a Fulbright scholarship, Mike holds two degrees in history. He lives in Washington, D.C. Mel Foster is a former ad agency executive who used to record test tracks for commercials. An audiobook narrator since 2002, he won an Audie Award for Finding God in Unexpected Places by Philip Yancey and an AudioFile Earphones Award for the novel Match Made in Heaven by Bob Mitchell. Mel is the author of several novels, including Shaking Hands with Lefkowitz, and he hopes that one day listeners will get the opportunity to hear him reading something that he's written himself.
"Lofgren has crafted an angry but clear-sighted argument that may not sit well at family reunions or dinner parties, but deserves attention." ---Publishers Weekly
