I received this video in an email from MoveOn.org yesterday. The email read:
Dear MoveOn member,
Do you have a conservative uncle, or someone in your family that you've gone 'round and 'round with over the budget fight that nearly shut down our federal government? Or did you find the whole thing totally impenetrable as the story seemed to change daily? Well, here's a video that breaks it down. It's a quick, funny, and honest explanation of what's actually happening in D.C. Check it out, and then share it with anyone you think could benefit from a little straight talk.
We need to have a real national conversation about how we can address the deficit. This video can help kick that off, but only if you share it.
I've now watched this video a couple of times, in an attempt to figure out how many lies, falsehoods, and misrepresentations are in it. I think I've counted 15.
Grab a pencil and paper and see if you can find as many lies as I did - or if you can find more!
