Not true now (or in 2009)
"We spend almost twice as much per capita on health care as do the people of any other country."
Privatize, not abolish
"(Texas Republicans) believe in abolishing Social Security, abolishing V.A. health care."
Americans work longer than most, but not all
"We now work the longest hours of any people around the world."
Eye-popping stat that isn't accurate
"Last year, ExxonMobil made $19 billion in profit. Guess what. They paid zero in taxes. They got a $156 million refund from the IRS."
As long as Canada, Norway, Switzerland, Austria and others aren't "nations on Earth"
"We spend twice as much per capita on health care as any other nation on Earth."
