FACT CHECK: Obama’s education claims missing facts

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama says almost every chance he gets that Republicans would cut education spending by 20 percent if their party wins control of Congress in the Nov. 2 elections. He also says they would repeal a new college tuition tax credit.

But as Obama makes these assertions to draw contrasts between the parties and give voters a reason to keep Democrats in power on Capitol Hill, he’s leaving out some important facts.

Take his claims about the Republican campaign plan, the Pledge to America.

Obama says Republicans would pay to keep a set of expiring tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans by cutting spending on education, an area where he’s investing billions of dollars from kindergarten through college.

    Obama can’t tell the truth, isn’t in him. When has anyone seen a ‘President’ ‘campaign’ with such partisan anger? The man is not even qualified to be Senator much less anything beyond that.
