The Government buys Capitalist friendship with handouts, Stimulus money? The Political Parties have money that they each use to further their desires of the moment?

Tad DeHaven of the CATO Institute investigated the situation to determine exactly how deep the problem runs.

Periodically, CATO analyzes the federal budget to ascertain exactly how much money our government shovels out to favored parties. Unfortunately, over the years both parties...
