Obama’s promises—“I will halve the deficit in 3 years.” (2008); “The affordable Healthcare Act will save America money.” (2009); “I am going to unify, not divide.” (2008); “Unemployment will not rise above 8% if we pass the Stimulus Bill.” (2009); via Geithner—(April 2011); “We will absolutely not suffer a downgrade of our credit by S and P.”; and, “The Financial Regulatory Reform Act (Dodd-Frank Bill) will free up capital to Main Street” (2010).

Let Reid help shed some simple, engrossing light on the facts, the situation and the why.
