Too long a read
"The Internal Revenue code has ballooned to a 5,600-page, 4 million-word complicated mess that is seven times as long as the Bible with none of the good news."

Same old claim, same ruling
"The United States currently has the highest corporate tax rate in the world."
A broken promise
Says Barack Obama "said when he was running for office four years ago that he would halve the annual deficit by the end of his first term. That simply has not happened."
Not since April 2009
"The Senate has not passed a budget in more than three years, not a good budget, not a bad budget, no budget."
Not for guns? Nope.
"One of the key things about Leonard Lance is that in 2008, when you look at [the] Project Vote Smart website, he was not for guns. Now he has gone too far to the right, saying that you can carry concealed weapons in national parks."
Nearly the size of the economy
"When the national debt reaches $15 trillion, it means that U.S. debt-to-GDP ratio will reach 99.7 percent of our debt and this is $47,900 for every living American."
How much is Obama to blame?
"Recently we have seen our government debt grow by $3.4 trillion during the first 29 months of the Obama administration -- the equivalent of about $4 billion per day."
