Thanks to recent battles over federal spending, the Truth-O-Meter hit a jackpot of claims that need checking. U.S. Sens. Saxby Chambliss of Georgia and Mark Warner of Virginia barnstormed the Atlanta area Monday to drum up support for reducing the national debt, so PolitiFact Georgia went for broke. We greeted them with rapid-fire fact checks. The budget hawks were mostly on the money. Warner won a True on Social Security data.

Both earned False rulings on the budget debate. Want to comment on our findings? Go to our Facebook page and hit the "like" button to join the discussion. You can also follow us on Twitter.
