Rep. Gingrey Lies About Health Care Polling

Speaking on the House floor last night, Rep.

Rep. Price Lies, Says Economic Policies Have Failed

Upon hearing news that the U.S. economy grew for the third straight quarter, Rep. Tom Price (R-GA) lambasted the "failure" of the "liberal economic experiment." Despite his ill-timed release, Price has his facts wrong.  The economy is on the road to recovery.  In March 2010, the economy added 162,000 jobs, the largest job gain in three years, and through the end of 2009, the Recovery Act had created up to 2.4 million jobs.
