Sweet Jesus these people make my head hurt. From this Friday's Your World with Neil Cavuto, Fox favorite Dr. Ben Carson was back, fearmongering over the Affordable Care Act and calling it not only the "most massive tax increase in the history of America" -- which he one upped for this segment as well -- saying it might also be the biggest tax increase "in the history of the world."

Our friends over at Media Matters debunked this one pretty thoroughly back in the summer of 2012. All that's old is new again at Fox. No amount of fact checking is going to keep them from repeating their lies over and over again, "to kind of catapult the propaganda."

He was also happy to peddle the "Obamacare is a government takeover of healthcare" zombie lie that's been debunked over and over again.

This guy was their great hope as the next GOP presidential frontrunner for a while there until he showed he wasn't really ready for prime time. Now he looks like he's just angling for an anchor chair over at Fox.

Can you help us out?
