    Check out the claims in Phil Berger’s political ad on TV, nothing reality based or factual is contained in it. Every claim he makes is completely false. He claims to have “created” 37,000 jobs, he also claims to have saved education and teacher’s jobs. When facts get in the way of evidence, he simply makes them up or denies them.

    There are less people working now than when Obama took office. What Phil Berger says is totally irrelevant to the big picture david !
