Bad Ad

| | Comments (0)
I saw a really weird ad on Boston TV last night (NESN, watching the Bruins). This guy running for governor of Massachusetts (some independent candidate) was showing that taxes are high. He showed a house, and said in 1990, taxes were $800. In 1998, taxes were $1900. In 2006, taxes were $2100. And he said "taxes are skyrocketing out of control," or words to that effect. But taxes, by his own numbers, have seen only a modest increase in the last eight years, after a huge jump in the previous eight years. That seems to me to argue for the status quo, but he was trying to use those numbers to argue against it.
