An arm of a conservative political group that spent heavily to help elect the Republican legislative majority is now prepared to spend more money to defend the GOP tenure.
Americans for Prosperity Foundation released a television advertisment Thursday that defends the Republican state budget. (The foundation is the 501c3 division of AFP's political 501c4 arm.) The advertisement particularly seeks to refute the idea that the budget forced the layoffs of teachers and teaching assistants -- which it did, even though the numbers are a subject of debate and the ad's wording requires some parsing.
