Reshared post from +Kevin Tofel
I typically don't talk politics publicly, but I'm making an exception in this case. And let me preface this by saying, I do not want (nor will I) debate policy or party with anyone. Make your own informed decisions and I'll do the same.
Having said that (and this is the TRUE point of why I'm sharing this), it sickens me that politicians and political action groups treat the American public as if they were stupid.
This ad is the latest and I saw it on TV yesterday. It's from Americans For Prosperity, who, according to them, "is committed to educating citizens about economic policy and mobilizing those citizens as advocates in the public policy process."
If that's really true, why compare the deficit with the debt in a misrepresentation? Deficit is one of three states of a budget: deficit, surplus or balance. Budget states and national debt are completely different and the AFP knows this. Shame on them.
Again – I'm not advocating for or against a party, a candidate or a policy here, so please let's not debate that. Thanks.
