Democrats claim the Koch brothers want to ‘protect tax cuts for companies that ship our jobs overseas’

The Pinocchio Test

Upon examination, this claim crumbles into dust. The ad not only mischaracterizes an ordinary tax deduction as a special “tax cut” but then it falsely asserts that “protecting” this tax break is part of the Koch agenda. It turns out this claim is based on a tenuous link to an organization that never even took a position on the legislation in question.

We often have  been critical of AFP ads, and we realize Democrats want to fight back against an onslaught of attacks. But if you want to join a gun fight, don’t fire blanks.

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?

GOP House members came to Paul Ryan to be Speaker. He didn't come to them. And he was everybody's conservative darling back in 2012. So unless 1 of the remaining 240 wants to step up & do a better job in budgeting & negotiations & herding the party cats, then everybody please STFU. You go to battle with the army you have, not the one you want but don't have.

The United States now has the highest corporate income tax rate in the developed world. If it were not for the few remaining tax preferences for businesses, far more American jobs would have long ago either been eliminated or never created in the first place.

The Koch Brothers have nothing to do with it, whatsoever. But that's not the point.

They might as well change their last name to Goldstein, so that the Left's "Two Minutes Hate" may proceed on time, daily.   
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

Ah, yes, this line. We have heard it ad nauseum for a decade now.

Almost everything reported on the "news" is a distraction.

To quote Larry the Cable Guy: I don't care who you are. That right there is funny.  :silly: :silly:

Yet I expect to see that very theory headlined on the next "Ed Show"...
