The Michigan "Coalition for Progress" is running ads that attack State Senator Tom George.
The ads claim that George voted against raising the minimum wage, without ever pointing out that he voted in favor of raising the minimum wage. George voted for a different version of the same bill.
The ads also claimed that the clinic that employs George "refuses" to accept Blue Cross/Blue Shield coverage. This is a flat-out lie. When they were caught lying to voters, several local radio stations refused to run the ads. The Coalition for Progress then changed the ads to say that the clinic "refused" to accept the coverage. It's doubtful that most voters noticed the one-letter change.
While technically accurate, the ad strongly implies that this is something that is happening today. They don't mention that the clinic "refused" to do so SIX YEARS AGO. In any case, George had no control over that policy. Even if the clinic did refuse this coverage, it would just mean that they would lose business to some other clinic.
The ads also don't deign to point out the "Coalition for Progress" is actually a billionaire liberal named Jon Stryker.
As liberalism has become increasingly unpopular, many liberals have rebranded themselves with the label "progressive." A progressive is literally someone who is for progress. Of course, this is totally uninformative since people wildly disagree about what constitutes progress. In this case, it would seem that "progress" means overturning the traditional bourgeois moral prohibition against lying.
