Brought to you by the campaign for factual accuracy in political discourse

A couple of links I would like to share:

First of all, regarding an email/Facebook post regarding a proposed 28th Amendment: this post is mostly false.  It contains oft-repeated claims about Congress exempting themselves from health-care mandates and sexual harassment laws.  Snopes does its usual thorough job debunking this.

Also, when faced with people who complain that so many people in 2009 did not pay taxes, hand this to them: an analysis of the actual tax burdens people carry.

I am separating these two links out from other posts, because I do not want to muddy the waters with attempts at persuasion.
