23% more lies

Last night I saw this Democratic ad attacking Tim Burns:

A 23% sales tax on everything? Sounds pretty bad! What they aren’t mentioning is that the 23% sales tax would be instead of your existing federal taxes (income tax, Social Security, Medicare), not in addition to them. It’s a classic lie by omission.

The DCCC has disabled comments on this ad, making it impossible for anyone to point out that it’s dishonest.

POSTSCRIPT: The DCCC has been called out for this lie before by the Annenberg Fact Check.
