The truth may set you free, but not if you're a Republican and the subject is taxes. After all, 95% of American families as promised received a tax cut from the Obama stimulus package. And while three-quarters of Americans support President Obama's proposal to roll back the Bush tax cuts for those earning over $250,000 to their Clinton-era levels, it turns out that affluent voters, too, chose Barack Obama over John McCain. Making matters worse, a Gallup poll Monday revealed that Americans' "views of income taxes among most positive since 1956."

So as their furious followers head off to their April 15th orgy of tea-bagging, the leadership of the GOP and its amen corner in the right-wing media have instead turned to tall tales on taxes.

Here, then, are 10 Republican Tax Day lies:

Lie #1: President Obama will raise taxes on small businesses.
Lie #2: The estate tax devastates small businesses and family farms.
Lie #3: 40% of Americans pay no taxes
Lie #4: Tax cuts always increase revenue.
Lie #5: The GOP is the party of fiscal discipline.
Lie #6: Ronald Reagan was the greatest tax cutter of all time.
Lie #7: FDR caused the Great Depression, or at least made it worse.
Lie #8: Obama's cap-and-trade plan will cost each American family $3,100 a year.
Lie #9: Obama's tax proposals will undermine charitable giving.
Lie #10: The rich pay too much in taxes already.
