We explore the issues raised by a recent political ad that features one person talking to a camera about the health care law.
Despite projections that Obamacare will reduce most premiums -- and predictions to the contrary -- the law is very complicated and the result will vary depending on what type of health insurance you have.
An Americans for Prosperity ad shows President Barack Obama promising to cut the national deficit during his first term and saying, "If I don't have this done in three years, then there's going to be a one-term proposition."
Did President Obama really give himself a three-year deadline to accomplish that goal?
Is stimulus money paying for traffic lights on Chinese streets?
That's a claim made by Americans for Prosperity in a TV ad running in Ohio and seven other states.
The ad blames President Barack Obama for sending stimulus money overseas while Americans are out of work. The claim about traffic lights is the third one we've checked out.
An ad from Americans for Prosperity is a case study in how to weave falsehoods, exaggerations and the occasional fact. We take a closer look.
