Kay Bailey Hutchison: cynical liar

Sweet Jesus I hate Texas' senators. Examples are legion online about how John Cornyn is your classic Republican empty suit, but only slightly rarer and sicker are the occasional Hutchison gems.

After the minimum wage hike (cum poison pill estate tax cut + minimum wage gutting for tipped employees), Hutchison oh-so-melodramatically had this to say. See if you can count the lies in this whopper: "[W]e are turning our back on the middle-class and poor people in this country who depend on the minimum wage and death-tax relief."

I count 4 lies (including the term "death tax," which is itself misleading) and 1 ironic truth (relating to the term "we").

How many did you find?
