Actually, we fact check carefully! ALL the MSM news agencies (FNC included) put a Lefty spin on everything. But, the FNC OPINION zone challenges us to verify their claims. The Left? Not so much! They toss out crap with no validation.

Special interests like the American people?
Or are you speaking of the party that has been co-opted by SEIU, People for the American Way, NEA (teachers union), NEA (endowment foir the arts), the UAW, George Soros, the Democracy Alliance, the Secretary of State Project (for ballot shenanigans), the Tides Foundation (donation laundering)?
Now the Left is screaming abouty the Koch brothers donating $1 million to one TEA Party, but overlooking the estimated $200 million donated by Soros and family and friends. They are howling about penny ante Canadian donations, but wasn't it the DNC that shut off foreign credit card tracking of donations?

An informed voter will not vote Dem.

As for health care. Young people can now stay on their parents coverage until age 26. That will be gone with the Republicans. Coverage for children and especially those with pre-existing conditions is in the Obama healthcare but will be gone under the Republicans.
That coverage is quickly disappearing now!

No lifetime caps which would help everyone who ever experiences a catastrophic illness in the family. Gone under the Republicans.
Gone moreso under PPACA (Obama/Pelisi/Reid healthSCARE). Company after comany are dropping coverage. Insurance companies are no longer taking policies which will financially kill them. Over 30 million, or more, may lose coverage by the time the healthSCARE bill takes full effect.

...They say they want to eliminate the deficite? Why would you trust them?
How about cutting spending? It works far better than running up $3 Trillion in debt in less than 2 years. Debt that's being used to bail out overspending States, give government workers raises (when everyone else is biting the bullet, and pay off unions and "community organizations" for their ballot stuffing.

Ah, yes, the tax cuts - which increased revenue far beyond expectations. The Cap Gains cut resulted in profit realizations and revenue gains of more than double the previous rate. The lower tax brackets resulted in more than a 35% tax reduction at the lowest income levels and the highest bracket went from 34% of Federal revenues to over 40%. The worsty of the deficits came once Dems got control of Congress (Congress creates the budget, and deficits, remember?). The worst of the deficits came after Dems got control of Congress.

That is the mess that Obama inherited along with the economic collapse.
No Pres gets a neat, tidy package. Obamas wasn't any worse than what GW inherited from Clinton. But Obama and the idealogues in Congress F'd up the works and made everything worse. Even the original econ collapse was caused by Dems (but they'll not accept the blame). Look up "misregulation". Fannie and Freddie were put in their position by Carters CRA and Clinton's HOI (look 'em up). Regulatory reform was obstructed by Dems, every step of the way. Look up Barney Frank's role in this! Or Pelosi, Maxine Waters, etc. Incompetent regulation of Wall Street, overbearing regulations of Main Street, and so on ....

He has brought the country back from the abyss. No longer are there 750K jobs being lost every month. For the last 8 months there has been positive job growth.
There were NEVER 750K jobs lost every month, that's pure PROPAGANDA. Even for the past 8 months, job creation has not reached replacement levels. The only reason the unemployment rate has stabilized is that so many are dropping out of the market. Obooboo brought nothing back from the brink. He's driven off the cliff.

The stock market went from 6000 to almost 11000. Growth has gone from a negative of 6.5 to a positive. It isn't good enough because jobs haven't come back to it is going in a positive direction. What have the Republicans offered. Nothing. They just whine and say No by voting or filibustering a bill so people cannot even debate the bill. They do not deserve your vote.
Have you noticed that the stock market goes up when opposition to Obamas misguided policies is the fiercest? After the TEA Parties, they rose. Coming into Novembers tsunnami, stocks are roaring. Repubs and Conservatives are offering repeal of misguided laws and policies. And who was it that cut off bipartisanship? Maybe the same one that stated "I won, and that trumps you." Or maybe it was the backroom negotiations between Dems and Dems - Repubs need not apply. The same folks that used demon pass instead of puting their votes on the line.

Babycakes, Dems cut their own throats with their condescention, derision, and heavy handedness. All respect that the voters may have had was lost.

And babycakes, you do the same as the Kool-aid crowd. Tossing about unfounded allegations, willy-nilly. Do your homework!
