As usual Peter Schweizer is right. Last year was a good year for crony capitalists.
Lots of money was made (taken). Many a deal was quietly done. And Washington continues to shine its beacon to all who would work the system. Like moths to a bonfire the cronies cross the Key Bridge into the District. The land of milk and honey. Your milk and your honey.
In 2012, the cronies had a banner year, poaching billions of taxpayer dollars to pump up their profits and redistribute their losses. In other instances, the cronies leveraged their insider connections to evade prosecutions and skirt the laws that apply to the rest of us. Consider just a few of the cronies that got away in 2012.
