10 Little Piggies

Meet Dwayne Andreas, multimillionaire businessman, grandfather, and number one welfare mooch. Our government has always had a double standard when it comes to doling out money to rich and poor. So while our Republican revolutionaries still have their budgetary knives out, Mother Jones, in the interest of fairness, would like to suggest a little corporate pork to trim. We’ve selected a round-numbered 10 piggies to start with, chosen for both their appetites and the size of the mess they leave.


Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
