"Here Are Some Facts You Need To Know"

Yesterday I received an email – with the above headline – purporting to detail the impact of Obama's tax plan on the average American. I won't go into detail, but suffice it to say it was clearly a piece of malicious junk mail spam. So, I did a quick check on the invaluable rumor-debunking site,, and sure enough, they'd found it to be FALSE.

So, please, if you ever receive an email regarding something you "MUST SEE" or "NEED TO READ" or "WHAT THEY'RE NOT TELLING YOU" (often accompanied by three or more exclamation marks), please, check it at Snopes before hitting forward and spamming your address book.
