Raw numbers not the best measurement
"There are more people living in this country who were not born here than at anytime in the history of the country."
The percentages are pretty close
On immigration, what reports say President Barack Obama "plans to do is roughly on the same scale" as what President George H.W. Bush did.
Oddly specific, unrealistic number
"The Kochs stand to make around $100 billion if the government approves the Keystone XL pipeline."
Based on an old and preliminary tally
"4.7 million people have lost their insurance in 32 states" due to Obamacare.
In line with most estimates
Repeal of Obamacare would "take away health care for 10.3 million Americans" who have received coverage since Oct. 1, 2013.
Reid's allowed a few votes
"The Democratic leader in the Senate, Harry Reid, has blocked any vote on the Keystone pipeline for years."
No, they're temporary construction jobs
The State Department says the 42,000 jobs created by the Keystone XL pipeline are "ongoing, enduring jobs."
No, but they are more reliable voters
"It is senior citizens, not Hispanics, who are the fastest-growing demographic in this country."
Should've skipped 'vast'
"Every single day in this country, 1,000 people are deported and the vast majority of those people that are deported aren't criminals."
99% are temporary
"There would be tens of thousands of jobs created" if President Barack Obama approved the Keystone XL pipeline.
Yep, they don't like it
Every new Republican member of the U.S. Senate said they "will vote to repeal and replace Obamacare."
8 actually -- from three different agencies
New Jersey has had "seven credit downgrades" since Chris Christie became governor.
Numbers uncertain, but experts give GOP edge
2014 midterm election spending by "the left and the right are both equal."
For most Kansas senators, there's no place like the GOP
"Kansas has not elected somebody other than a Republican (to the U.S. Senate) since before 'The Wizard of Oz' hit the movie theaters."
Not what 2013 law says
A new Colorado law "literally allows residents to print ballots from their home computers, then encourages them to turn ballots over to ‘collectors.’ "
Puffs up an old story
Democrats give "Newports to the homeless to get them to the polls."
Using a certain window, yes
"Money towards the Ebola vaccine is basically cut in half to what it was. More cuts are coming under the congressional sequester."
16 to 22 is a better range
"We've had 27 (Ebola) outbreaks around the globe and they've never spread outside of the confines of the countries that were initially affected."
O'Reilly's appearances are a ratings factor
"When I go on Letterman" the "ratings go up."
Ebola is the bigger humanitarian crisis
"This (Ebola) is not as bad as SARS was in 2003."
