I thought a little fact checking was in order here. Fact Check: Are business groups critical of McCain's health plan? Verdict: True. Obama accurately expresses the tone and content of the news article. Fact Check: Did McCain say the Iraq war would be easy, popular? The Verdict: True. Fact Check: Did Obama vote 94 times for higher taxes? Verdict: Misleading. McCain's summary ignores the fact that some of the votes were for measures to lower taxes for many Americans, while increasing them for a much smaller number of taxpayers. A nonpartisan examination also finds that the 94 total includes multiple votes on the same measures and budget votes that would not directly lead to higher taxes. Fact Check: Has Obama never 'taken on' Democratic leaders? Verdict: False. While McCain is correct that Obama has supported the Democratic leadership almost all of the time, to say he's never differed with them is not true. Fact Check: Did McCain join, or lead on Fannie-Freddie reform? The Verdict: True. McCain's warning came more than a year after legislation was introduced. He was not the sponsor and the bill failed to pass. Fact Check: Did Obama get second-most money from Freddie and Fannie? VERDICT: Misleading. No donations actually came from the companies. One method of measuring employee contributions does put Obama second overall, but another, for the current election cycle, shows McCain receiving significantly more.
