He voted that way; significance is up for debate
In 2006, Bernie Sanders "voted in the House with hard-line Republicans for indefinite detention for undocumented immigrants, and then he sided with those Republicans to stand with vigilantes known as Minutemen who were taking up outposts along the border to hunt down immigrants."
Data still has merit, but is growing old
"If you look at Latino kids between 17 and 20 who graduated high school, 36 percent of them are unemployed or underemployed. … African-American kids are unemployed or underemployed to the tune of 51 percent."
Not so blunt, but a clear preference
When Honduran children came into this country, "Secretary Clinton said send them back."
Right on numbers, but worth a grain of salt
"Almost every poll has shown that Sanders vs. Trump does a lot better than Clinton vs. Trump … and, that’s true nationally."
Bills still sky high despite a recent drop
"(Flint, Mich., is) paying three times more for poison water than I am paying in Burlington, Vt., for clean water."
Rate is higher, but not because of water
"We have a higher rate of tested lead in people in Cleveland than in Flint."
Romney broke the record four years later
"President Obama took more money from Wall Street in the 2008 campaign than anybody ever had."
In the past year, at least
Marco Rubio "has the No. 1 absentee record in the United States" Senate.
He does fare best, but not always by 11 points
In head-to-head polls for the general election, "I beat Hillary Clinton by more than anybody, by 11 points."
The poorest of the poor
"Since (welfare reform) was signed into law, the number of families living in extreme poverty has more than doubled."
Maybe an energy plan, but not climate change
"There is not a single candidate in the Republican primary that thinks we should do anything about climate change."
Oddsmakers take note
"About 70 percent of Republicans nationwide ... don't think Donald Trump is the right guy" to take on Hillary Clinton in November.
Numerically correct; significance is less clear
"Barack Obama will somehow manage to add more than $8 trillion to the national debt, which is more debt than the 43 presidents who held office before him compiled together."
Yes, but it's more complicated
"When Jeb (Bush) was governor, his first four years as governor, his Medicaid program grew twice as fast as mine."
It's been a tough 15 years for American households
"Americans haven’t had a raise in 15 years."
This diagnosis is largely correct
"In America, we pay, by far, the highest prices in the world for prescription drugs."
Not 100 percent consistent, but generally conservative
"My two appointments to the Florida Supreme Court, Raul Cantero and Kenneth Bell, have earned reputations as its most consistent conservatives."
Bernie doesn't have Clinton's cabal
"There really isn’t any kind of foreign policy network that is supporting and advising Sen. Sanders."
He did suggest it, as part of a coalition
Says Bernie Sanders advocated putting "Iranian troops into Syria to try and resolve the conflict there. Putting them right on the doorstep of Israel."
Leading Dems want economic empowerment for all
Says his views on reparations for slavery are the same as Barack Obama's and Hillary Clinton's.
