--Donald Lambro, Chief Political Correspondent, Washington Times
"In this important new book, Chris Edwards provides fresh insights to understanding a Washington establishment that has grown far too big. He presents a bold and detailed plan to reduce the size of the government and take a first step to restoring America's heritage of liberty. Every taxpayer should read this book."
--John Berthoud, President, National Taxpayers Union
"Yes, government is fat and this book prescribes a radical diet, plus surgery, to get its weight down. Many will take offense at some of the proposed spending cuts, but the need for America to start living within its means cannot be denied. Read this book to see how deep our fiscal hole is and one brave and bruising way out."
--Representative Jim Cooper (D-TN)
"A responsible program-by-program set of proposals to get the federal government within reasonable limits. Utopian, indeed, but only to those who are blind to the dystopia that looms."
--James M. Buchanan, Nobel Laureate in Economics
"One of the great disappointments of Republican rule is the failure to get spending under control. In this well-researched book, Chris Edwards shows one way, and there are others. Such proposals need to be taken seriously to put the federal budget on a sustainable path."
--James C. Miller III, Director, White House Office of Management and Budget, 1985-1988
"Most conservatives wave their arms about cutting spending, but do nothing. Chris Edwards has finally shown how it can be done."
--Isabel V. Sawhill, Vice President and Director, Economic Studies, Brookings Institution
