Taxpayer Network gets creative in two ads attacking incumbent Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA), but doesn't manage to come up with any fair points on which to disparage her. One of the ads falsely claims that Boxer "voted to include illegals in the new health care law," but the law explicitly excludes undocumented immigrants. Taxpayer Network also digs up three obscure votes to claim that Boxer voted to provide Viagra for convicted child molesters and that she voted to help "illegal aliens" over veterans. In fact, the ads wildly distort the impact and intent of all three votes.

Recently, Rep. Mike Pence has made a point of speaking out for our troops. On May 14, 2009, he took to the House floor and rose to support "the military funding in H.R. 2356, the FY 2009 War Supplemental Appropriations Bill. It will provide nearly $85 billion to support our men and women serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, those who every day make the sacrifices necessary to ensure our freedom and that of our posterity." Those are beautiful words, but Rep. Pence's actions aren't in keeping with his rhetoric.
