I wish I had seen this because the ABC article is so brief on each topic. 20/20 debunked these nine myths:

  • Getting cold can give you a cold

  • We have less free time than we used to

  • American families need two incomes

  • Money can buy happiness

  • Republicans shrink the government

  • The rich don't pay their fair share of taxes

  • Chemicals are killing us

  • Guns are bad

  • We're drowning in garbage

Except for money buying happiness, and (depending on your beliefs) Republicans shrinking government, it's a good thing that all these myths are false. Why do we believe myths that make us also believe life is worse than it really is?
