How low are the political ads going to go? I am tired of all the innuendoes, half-truths and out-and-out lies that are being told thousands of times a day on TV and in the print news! Yes, Republican Dennis Rehberg voted against cancer research but not specifically against research for breast cancer, which the ads say. Yes, Jon Tester voted for the health care reform act but he was not the deciding vote; he was just one of many who voted for the plan. They tell us everyone is against the health care reform while I know hundreds who are for it, including me.
And all the things politicians promise to do when they get to Washington — what a laugh! They can't do anything alone. It takes all of our congressman and women working together if anything is ever going to get done. There are way too many inaccuracies to lift up in one letter. The sad part is that many people hear and read this "trash" and believe it as truth. If these ads go much lower, they will be in hell where I think most of them belong and possibly the politicians along with them.
Our country is in serious trouble when all the politicians care about is getting and preserving their jobs in Washington, D.C., rather than the people they are supposed to be serving.
