Why I Hate Info Graphics – They are Deceptive

So to be kind since I could just go whirlwind through Mashable and the Blogosphere on this I will use a recent Huffington Post Article on how Bush’s tax cuts for the rich are our biggest deficit problem. While I am sure we can prove using MATH that this is a major factor, the infographic is disingenuous because it leaves out any money we will owe for Medicare, Social Security, the new Healthcare Law because I am very positive the debt wouldn’t be coming down (noted as Debt Without Those Factors) without changes to those massive programs.
