In his Congressional web-page, linked below, Congressman Ross, who represents much of POLK and some of Eastern HILLSBOROUGH counties, made some specific
promises -as implied by this statement of his:
s Ending No Child Left Behind
s Eliminating the Federal Department of Education and re-allocating the $100 billion per year towards education loans, grants, loan forgiveness and government debt reduction
s Eliminating all primary and secondary federal education
A reasonable interpretation of his statement of alleged 'SUPPORT' is a promise to attempt (whether successful or not) to do the things he listed on his page (and in the press, such as above). These are promises - promises which he has not kept. In other words, he can not be truthful in his statement if he refuses to take ANY action-which is apparently the case: Actions, not words, tell his true intent: Last I've heard, and to the best of my knowledge (caveat: check me here; I might have missed something), Dennis has taken NO steps or attempts to fulfil or keep any of the above promises.
ANALISIS: He lied. While I think that the torts committed in predatory lending, illegal monopoly, laws void for vagueness, etc., call for a judgment for damages, I am not asking for total 'Loan Forgiveness' like many liberals are, just equal and fair treatment. However, be that as it may: Ross made these promises and did NOT keep them.
PROOF: In case Dennis edits or alters his page...

CONCLUSION: Dennis, you made many promises to 'support' various goals above. Do you ever intend to keep your word, here; or, rather: Did you merely make a bunch of political promises just to get votes??
