Liberal lies

June 11, 2014

Have there ever been bigger public lies than “If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period”? Or, “If you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan, period”?

Another big lie from the political left is “trickle-down economics” hurts our country’s economy. Every time it’s been tried, it works to the benefit of our citizenry, from Calvin Coolidge, to John Kennedy, to Ronald Reagan, to Newt Gingrich, and to George W. Bush.

Clinton too often gets credit for the upturn in our economy when it was really Gingrich who forced Clinton for political purposes to sign the tax cut. George W. gets criticized that his tax cut too much favored the rich, when the top rate was decreased 12 percent while the bottom rate was lessened by 33 percent. Also, this cut increased the child tax credit 100 percent, which certainly helps families.

This “trickle down” as hurting our economy is a good example of the big lie — if it’s repeated often enough, it’s accepted as truth. Does “climate change” also fit into this category?

    Excellent example of how Fox News watchers are the least informed.

    So, “Albert” and “Almost Retired”, when are you two going to grow a backbone and submit a comment using your real names?

    I don’t see you refute a single fact with a fact. All you do is toss out childish insults.

    Actually John research has proven that (a) Fox viewers are uninformed(b) cutting taxes on the rich doesn’t stimulate the GDP and (c) Albert is my name.
