Since we can't avoid the political ads (unfortunately we are a swing state), I would ask everyone to remember one thing. These ads are being financed by some very rich people - people (and corporations) that, even if their taxes are increased, they will make sure their donations are enough to balance it out. The person living from paycheck to paycheck doesn't have that option. They are trying to feed their families and keep a roof over their heads! You can bet none of the politicians you are listening to are doing that.
