"Enough" Is "Enough" With Club For Growth's Falsehoods

In a new version of their "Enough" ad, the Club for Growth (CFG) goes after Rep. Harry Mitchell (D-AZ) with patent falsehoods about the Affordable Care Act as well as the government bailouts of Wall Street banks and Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Contrary to the CFG's claims, the Affordable Care Act kept intact the private health system, and government intervention in the financial and mortgage industries brought the economy back from the precipice of disaster.

Club For Growth Continues To Propagate Clean Energy Lies

Club for Growth has released a new ad that attacks Scott McAdams (D-AK) and Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) for supporting clean energy legislation. Contrary to the ad's false claims, investing in clean energy legislation would boost America's economy by billions and create up to 1.9 million American jobs — including 4,000 in Alaska — at very little cost to taxpayers. And despite the ad's insinuation that McAdams' supports cap-and-trade, he has not yet expressed his position on the policy; rather, he favors the "responsible development" of Alaska's natural resources.

Club For Growth's Attack On Sestak Is "Laughably" Dishonest

Club for Growth has released a new ad in Pennsylvania attacking Rep. Joe Sestak for supporting the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

One Lie Isn't "Enough" For Club For Growth

It's only their first ad for a House race in the 2010 general election season and we've already had "enough" of Club for Growth's distortions. The arch-conservative PAC launched a fact-free attack on Rep. John Spratt (D-SC) claiming that Spratt's 28 years in Congress have "affected him," clouding his judgment to such a degree that he is now voting for higher taxes and greater debt. Well, apparently Club for Growth's 11 years of existence has "affected" the organization's ability to tell the truth. Contrary to the group's assertions, clean energy legislation is not a "job-kill[er]," the Affordable Care Act is not "big-government health care," and government intervention in the financial and auto industries saved them — and the economy as a whole — from the brink of disaster.
