Meters tackle history, landfill waste

Trust your Truth-O-Meter and Deal-O-Meter to master topics as different as fiscal responsibility, President Ronald Reagan and landfill waste.

Last week, the Truth-O-Meter examined an attack that blamed two Democratic congressmen from Georgia for the nation’s fiscal problems.  

It also performed a second check of former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich’s knowledge of Reagan history. The Republican presidential candidate keeps name-dropping the conservative hero. Now, he’s comparing himself to him.

To top it off, the Deal-O-Meter rated a promise by Gov. Nathan Deal that he will reduce landfill waste.  

Watch out. PolitiFact Georgia’s a quick study.
