The Manchester Union Leader catches Rep. Michele Bachmann lying.  What a shock!

Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA) caught plagiarizing.

Herman Cain's 999 plan would raise taxes on Americans AND explode the deficit.

Rick Perry places the American Revolution in the 1500s. 

Mitt Romney lies about regulations costing jobs.

For those who can't or don't want to watch the video, here are the seven myths:

1. Tax cuts for the rich trickle down to everyone else.

2. Higher taxes on the rich would hurt the economy and slow job growth.

3. Shrinking government generates more jobs.

4. Cutting the budget deficit now is more important than boosting the economy.

5. Medicare and Medicaid are the major drivers of budget deficits.

6. Social Security is a Ponzi scheme.

7. It’s unfair that lower-income Americans don’t pay income tax.
