 In the interview Pat Buchanan stated

Heritage is completely subsidized. … You get all this money from big fat corporations.

This, however, is not the case. According to our most recent annual report [2](for 2007, page 28), less than five percent of our $45.6 million in income from contributions that year came from corporate donors. 58 percent of our contributions ($26.5 million) came from individuals and 37 percent ($16.9 million) from foundations.

…We see Buchanan’s employer already has their hand in the taxpayer till to the tune of $140 billion [3]
