Bumped from the diaries. Tom White is one of the Congressional candidates on our Going on Offense Act Blue page; please welcome him to MyDD. - Nathan
On two separate occasions recently – the Tom Becka Program on KFAB and a taxpayer-funded telephone town hall – Rep. Lee Terry misled voters about his record on deficits and spending. Watch the video:
By spreading misinformation on the radio and on a taxpayer-funded phone call, Lee Terry is trying to hide from his record of voting for the Wall Street bailout and for budgets that nearly doubled the national debt and added trillions to the deficit. Desperate to hide from his record, Congressman Terry is using a strategy cynical even by Washington standards: misleading taxpayers while billing them for the call. Congressman Terry has no credibility when it comes to spending nor the deficit.
Terry is facing the toughest challenge of his career from Democratic State Senator Tom White, who was on the first round of Red-to-Blue candidates.
