The BIG Lies
"I just wanted to take a minute to explain to everyone what we were able to achieve this week. In the face of looming deadlines that would have taken a big chunk out of everyone's bottom line, you know my top priority has been preventing a tax hike that would have hit 98 percent of all Americans in 2013, because the last thing middle-class families could afford now would be to pay upwards of $2,000 more in taxes this year. ... We've stopped that middle-class tax hike." --Barack Obama, who actually did hike taxes on most taxpayers.
"[I]f you look at my track record over the last two years, I cut spending by over a trillion dollars in 2011." --Barack Obama, who presided over increased spending of $147 billion in 2011.
