Fact Checking The Sunday Shows - April 10, 2011

With a government shutdown narrowly averted this weekend, the Sunday shows focused naturally on spending issues. On CBS, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) made the absurd assertion that government spending caused the recession (and not rampant fraud on Wall Street), and falsely claimed that a balanced budget amendment would help our fiscal situation. On Fox, Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA) repeated a favorite GOP lie about entitlement programs — that they "are not gonna be there for me when I retire" unless voters allow conservatives to rip holes in the safety net. And on NBC, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) misled viewers about his budget proposal that would undo safety net programs like Medicare, Medicaid and food stamps while cutting taxes for the richest Americans and protecting special interest tax loopholes for Big Oil. Meanwhile on ABC, Rep. Mike Pence (R-IN) seemed to have forgotten that he voted in February to eliminate all Title X funding for family planning services.

Republicans Celebrate The Affordable Care Act's One-Year Anniversary By Reviving Old Lies

This morning on Fox News, Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) declared that President Obama and supporters of the Affordable Care Act "keep saying things that aren't true" about the law, while Republicans continue to "put the facts out and our facts are backed up by the authorities." Of course, Hatch has it exactly backwards, which was evident today as Republicans commemorated the health care law's one-year anniversary by repeating worn out lies about a "government takeover" that will destroy jobs, cut Medicare benefits, increase the deficit, and raise premiums. Let's examine the real facts about the Affordable Care Act.
