I go thru these sites every once in a while. I didnt know about this one and the only reason I am posting it is because of who is behind it. I found tht curious at best.
In a mailer to Ohioans, a conservative group distorts Ohio’s job figures under President Obama and misquotes his administration about the potential for mismanaged stimulus money.
Ironically, the mailing from Americans for Tax Reform, a nonprofit group led by Grover Norquist, proclaims that it’s “important for Ohio to get the whole picture.”
We couldn’t agree more.
The mailer displays a 2012 newspaper headline, “Ohio second-worst for job losses.” But the article was about job losses over the last 10 years — a time period that saw Ohio lose hundreds of thousands of jobs. Under Obama, Ohio ranks higher than most states for job creation.
ATR attributes job losses to Obama that occurred before he took office and cites figures from an employment survey that isn’t the standard measure for jobs.
The flier claims Obama officials admitted that $55 billion in stimulus funds “may have been lost through fraud, waste and abuse.” Officials said no such thing. They were talking about trying to prevent such a loss.
Our thanks to an Ohio resident who sent us ATR’s mailer, which she said she received last month. We’re including this piece on our Spin Detectors page, through which we ask our readers to help us monitor political claims and campaigns across the country. The Ohio reader asked us to withhold her name.
