The GOP Lie Machine Has A New Champion

link here to article

Unfortunately, people are not surprised when politicians tell a lie or two. The latest candidate for the GOP nomination, Governor Perry from Texas, may set the world record for political lying. He has based his campaign on his record in Texas. He lied about how his policies have produced job growth in Texas, and this article, shows that he has lied about the how the medical malpractice law in Texas has increased the number of physicians in Texas and has led to lower medical costs. Healthcare prices have not gone down in Texas and neither has the cost of medical insurance. Moreover, Texas leads the nation in the number of uninsured citizens. He has attempted to build on the GOP claim that malpractice reform will lower costs and enable more to purchase insurance. His base may respond to his unsubstantiated claims, but they won't stand up to analysis in the general election if he is nominated. Even Americans don't expect politicians to lie about everything.
