Description: Congressman Timothy Penny (D/MN) left Congress in disgust after six terms; Major Garrett, a correspondent for the Washington Times and NPR's All Things Considered, has been covering Washington at least as long. In their first book, Common Cents (Little, Brown, 1995; Avon tp, '96), they revealed how Congress really works. Now their scope has broadened: Just in time for the off-year elections, they have crafted this book to open our eyes to the bald lies behind what we think of as the basics of American government. Among them:
-- Tax cuts are good
-- The budget is about to be balanced
-- Money buys elections
-- Republicans want to shrink government
-- Democrats are compassionate

Penny and Garrett show why these notions took hold, how the politicians manipulate them -- and, most important, how you, the voter, can keep from getting fooled Hard-hitting, eye-opening, and fair to all sides, The 15 Biggest Lies In Politics should be in the hands of every registered voter in America.
