Fact-checking on tax hike

Daily Item

---- — You are to be congratulated for publishing "Tax hike on wealthy would not kill 700,000 jobs," the fact-checker article from The Washington Post.

Now that the election is over, it is time to become clear-minded about the many lies, distortions and florid appeals to credulity that have characterized the political campaigns -- and get down to facts. Many of the deceptions have been spread by various media, and it is only appropriate that media undertake to straighten us out.
