It's always been difficult in politics to separate the truth from the lies. In this strongly argued yet nonpartisan book, Garrett and Penny draw on their combined decades of experience watching government work to illuminate the deceptions and delusions to which we as citizens are subjected every election season.
The pervasive falsehoods explicated in this study include:
Tax Cuts Are Good
Social Security Is a Sacred Government Trust
Money Buys Elections
Republicans Believe in Smaller Government
Democrats Are Compassionate
The 15 Biggest Lies in Politics aims to reveal, as noted in the introduction, "the most insidious lies spun by special-interest groups, parroted by politicians, and accepted by the media."
