[OPINION] Ad Misleads On Budget & Tax Issues

There is a current political advertisement that is an example of dishonesty and contorted logic.

It says one state Senator vote for “154 tax increases”. The fact is that it takes a majority to pass any law, whether it raises or lowers taxes. The governor can also veto laws. Just how accurate is that number?

The present governor claims he balanced the budget, but would that be possible without the increased taxes? When will he lower state spending so taxes could be lowered?

I hope we will see more honest political advertisements in the future. Or are political advertisements inherently dishonest?
