Not what the rules say
"What (the Obama administration is) going to come out with in the next several months is you're not even going to be able to burn coal very limitedly in the existing plants."
Natural gas killed coal, not Obama
"The president's come out with rules that say, 'No new coal-fired power plants.' "
Documents and multiple interviews say otherwise
"I haven’t really proposed (phasing out aid to Israel) in the past."
It was costly to the government and the economy
"It cost us more to shut the government down than to keep it open."
Not the whole story
In the "do-nothing Senate," there are 352 House bills "sitting on Harry Reid’s desk awaiting action," including 55 introduced by Democrats.
An old claim returns
Says U.S. Senate candidate Joni Ernst signed a pledge that "protects tax breaks for companies that ship jobs overseas."
If by 'blocked' they mean 'backed'
Says U.S. Senate candidate Cory Gardner "blocked immigration reform" and "voted to deport our DREAMers."
Nowhere near a record
The United States is at "historic record highs" of individuals being apprehended on the border from countries with terrorist ties such as "Pakistan or Afghanistan or Syria."
Let the states decide, Ernst says
Says U.S. Senate candidate Joni Ernst does not support "a national minimum wage."
A 10-year-old can debunk her claim
"Global warming is a hoax."
House didn't but Jackson Lee did
"We did not seek an impeachment of President Bush."
She's right, but there's a history of individual suits
"The House of Representatives has never sued a sitting president in all of U.S. history."
Maybe in Colorado's neighbors
"We would create thousands of jobs in Colorado, if the Keystone Pipeline were to be built."
The timing doesn't line up
Says Rep. Bruce Braley, D-Iowa, "skipped an important VA reform hearing to attend three fundraisers."
It's pretty darn close
Says Rep. Bruce Braley, D-Iowa, missed "79 percent of veterans affairs committee hearings."
That's pretty close, but beware a rural bias in the stats
"97 percent of the 100 poorest counties in America are in red states."
He only said it once
Says Mark Pryor "continues to insist" that Obamacare is "an amazing success."
Administration policies aren't the only factor
The Obama administration's policies "have reduced minority dropout rate by 25 percent."
Because the courts are slow
"By some estimates, as few as 2 percent of the 50,000 (Central American) children who have crossed the border illegally this year have been sent home."
Below average, but not the worst
The state of New York is the "worst in the nation in economic recovery."
