Your Tax Dollars Being Spent on Political Advertising

Did you know that many states and the federal government does not have laws preventing entities that receive government funding from placing political ads?  Whether you support a position or entity or not, they should not be allowed to politic as an entity for a candidate.

Recently in Iowa a Political Action Committee calling themselves as Planned Parenthood Votes started running negative advertising against one candidate attempting to sway voters away from that candidate.  The Secretary of State for Iowa shows that the primary address that is the same as the local Planned Parenthood office and the officers of both are the same.  The argument in the 30 second advertisement utilizes a logical fallacy, but it might still might trick some voters.  With the frequency of these ads, a lot of tax payers dollars are being spent for a political agenda.

If these agencies have enough money on hand to spend it on campaigning, maybe we should cut their government funding and get it to agencies that really need the money for the purpose originally intended.
