All Mostly False statements involving Barack Obama
Barack Obama "pays for every dime" of his spending plans.
"I introduced a bill that would’ve helped stop the multimillion-dollar bonus packages that CEOs grab on their way out.. (McCain) opposed that idea."
"In January, I outlined a plan to help revive our faltering economy, which formed the basis for a bipartisan stimulus package that passed the Congress."
McCain "voted to cut education funding, against accountability standards. He even proposed abolishing the Department of Education."
McCain "said no to higher fuel-efficiency standards for cars."
"I argued for years that we need to move from a 'Musharraf policy' to a 'Pakistan policy.' "
John McCain worries about nuclear waste in Arizona, but not in Nevada.
John McCain offers "billions in tax breaks for oil and drug companies, but almost nothing for families like yours."
"I have little doubt that we've moved into recession at this point."
"Sen. McCain's economic plan gives nearly $4-billion in tax breaks to the oil companies but doesn't provide any tax relief to more than 100-million middle-class families."
"McCain will give more tax breaks to big oil."
"These steps (a middle-class tax cut, national health care plan, foreclosure prevention fund, Social Security fix and more) are all paid for."
"Privatizing Social Security was a bad idea when George W. Bush proposed it. It's a bad idea today. Sen. McCain's campaign went even further ... suggesting ... to cut cost-of-living adjustments or to raise the retirement age."
John McCain "is one of the few senators of either party who oppose this bill (to expand education aid for veterans) because he thinks it's too generous."
"Clinton aides admit it (a gas tax holiday) won't do much for you – but would help her politically."
Hillary Clinton "agrees with (John McCain) in embracing the Bush-Cheney policy of not talking to leaders we don't like."
"I do provide universal health care."
Obama says his health care plan is "universal."
