I'm sorry, but it's still hard for me to trust "facts" purported by these congressmen. Statistics and Data can be interpreted and skewed in many ways, or outright lied about. They do not equate to facts.

In addition to that, Statistics have a context. If you only provide statistics that support one side of an issue, but ignore those that support the other side, you get a completely inaccurate picture of the truth. You may be right, but you're still dishonest. Whenever I see a list of "facts" that only support an opinion, without an honest admission to those which might not support it, I am immediately skeptical. Politicians of every kind have been doing this throughout our history.

Still, I'd trust them slightly more than Glenn Beck, just not that much more.
