Hillary Clinton has a history of making factually challenged statements. Back in July, for example, she insisted during an interview with CNN: “People should and do trust me.” (They don’t, and they shouldn’t.)
On Sunday, Clinton made a rare appearance on Face The Nation, and made the following controversial claim:
Sen. Robert Menendez’s claims that President Obama’s health care reform provides $250 million in savings over its first 10 years and $1.2 trillion over its second decade have been rated “mostly false” by Politifact, a nonpartisan fact checking website.
“Flack checkers” at the University of Pennsylvania have called President Barack Obama’s assertion that he has supported less regulation than his predecessor one of the “worst [fibs] of 2012.”
Barack Obama’s re-election campaign has a problem with the truth, according to Washington Post fact checkers.
President Obama referenced a dubious statistical report at a campaign event on Thursday, claiming: “Since I’ve been president, federal spending has actually risen at the lowest pace in nearly 60 years.”
