Associated Press Fact Check Destroys Obama SOTU.
Barack Hussein Obama lied on the number of jobs created, starting its count not from when he took office but from the highest point of unemployment.
He said that Obamacare is helping to reduce the growth of health care costs, but "but many experts say that's due to the sluggish economy, not to the health care law, whose main provisions are not yet fully in effect".
On immigration, Obama stressed the establishment of a conditional pathway to earned citizenship for illegal immigrants. But this path is easier than he made it sound and, under his provisions, illegal immigrants will have privileges and advantages over legal immigrants:
Like those living abroad who have applied to come to the U.S. legally, illegal immigrants who qualify for Obama's proposed path to citizenship will surely face long waits to be processed. But during that time, they are already in the U.S. and will get to stay, work and travel in the country under their new status as provisional immigrants, while those outside the U.S. simply have to wait.On education, Obama exaggerated the efficacy of the Head Start program for poor children.
But a study last year by the Department of Health and Human Services that found big vocabulary and social development gains for at-risk students in pre-kindergarten programs also found those effects largely faded by the time pupils reached third grade. The report didn't explain why the kids saw a drop-off in performance or predict how they would fare as they aged.And the President said that his administration has doubled the distance USA cars will go on a gallon of gas, whereas in fact that is expected to happen in 12 years.
