From the people who brought you “Washington Honey Badgers” …
Public Notice continues its popular and effective “Bankrupting America” video series with this production, “Real or Fake 2: Can you tell which of these examples are true?” What our federal government deems worthy of subsidization might surprise even the most cynical taxpayer.
The last example is my personal favorite. If that stat doesn’t reveal just what a sea change President Obama’s administration has been, I don’t know what does. Yes, federal spending has gone up and up and up under Democrat and Republican presidents alike, but never before at such a pace as under this president. No wonder hard-working, taxpaying Americans (Tea Partiers among them) have expressed outrage and disappointment with Washington.
