It's not quite that simple
McCain supports tax breaks for companies that ship jobs overseas.
The Democrats counted correctly
McCain voted 19 times against a minimum-wage increase.
McCain has a mixed record on fuel economy standards
McCain "said no to higher fuel-efficiency standards for cars."
No, he's just not okay with one bill
McCain "still thinks it's okay when women don't earn equal pay for equal work."
Obama was there for equal pay, but not alone
As a state senator in Illinois, Obama made sure women got equal pay for equal work.
Cause and effect? Possible, but not clear
"Joe Biden wrote the Violence Against Women Act ... the rate of domestic violence went down dramatically."
McCain's math is not even close
Obama wants to increase the size of government by 23 percent.

Spending increases, not tax cuts, are the major cause of the federal budget deficit.
