  3. &lt;br/&gt;
  4. &lt;p&gt;Most economist agree that hefty tax cuts and more government spending have &amp;ndash;&amp;ndash; at least in the short run &amp;ndash;&amp;ndash; boosted America&amp;rsquo;s economy. Christine Lagarde, head of the International Monetary Fund, said policy makers have another lever they could pull. Women, she said, are a phenomenal source of growth. &amp;quot;In the United States, if there was equal participation of women in the labor market, GDP would be up by 5 percent,&amp;quot; Lagarde said on CBS&amp;rsquo; Face the Nation Dec. 9.

  5. &lt;br/&gt;
  6. &lt;p&gt;The uninsurance rate is one of the main barometers for how the country is doing on health care. In that vein, Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., sounded the alarm. &amp;quot;After a decade of progress, the rate of uninsured children is now rising,&amp;quot; Klobuchar tweeted Dec. 3. &amp;quot;This is very troublesome. Every child needs access to quality, affordable healthcare.&amp;quot; See Figure 3 on PolitiFact.com Behind Klobuchar&amp;rsquo;s tweet lies a recent report from the Georgetown University Center for Children and Families.

  8. &lt;p&gt;In a renewed effort to get Democrats to approve money for his border wall, President Donald Trump claimed that the border wall would quickly pay itself using a simple concept. Trump had originally promised that Mexico would pay for the wall,&amp;nbsp;but he now says the United States can bear the costs using savings that would come from preventing illegal immigration. &amp;quot;Could somebody please explain to the Democrats (we need their votes) that our Country losses 250 Billion Dollars a year on illegal immigration, not including the terrible drug flow.

  10. &lt;p&gt;&amp;nbsp; Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., is one of Congress&amp;rsquo; most ardent supporters of Medicare for All, the Democratic proposal to expand Medicare to all ages in order to create a government-funded health insurance system for all Americans. In a tweet, Ocasio-Cortez compared the scale of Pentagon waste to the price tag for Medicare for All, which a study by the free-market Mercatus Institute said would cost $32 trillion over 10 years.

  11. &lt;br/&gt;
  12. &lt;p&gt;Legal challenges to President Donald Trump&amp;rsquo;s appointment of Matthew Whitaker as acting attorney general are wending their way through the federal courts, with analysts and court watchers divided over how the high-stakes fight will shake out. Regardless of how the courts rule, though, some believe there&amp;rsquo;s already agreement across the political spectrum that Trump&amp;rsquo;s move violates the U.S. Constitution. &amp;quot;There&amp;rsquo;s bipartisan consensus that this appointment violates the Appointments Clause of the Constitution, which trumps any statute that the administration&amp;rsquo;s lawyers have cited,&amp;quot; Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said. Politicians sometimes apply the label &amp;quot;bipartisan consensus&amp;quot; misleadingly to suggest a public policy ...&lt;/p&gt; &lt;a href="/truth-o-meter/statements/2018/nov/29/nancy-pelosi/nancy-pelosi-wrong-legal-debate-over-attorney-gene/"&gt;&gt;&gt; More&lt;/a&gt;</description><pubDate>Thu, 29 Nov 2018 16:49:51 -0500</pubDate><guid>https://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2018/nov/29/nancy-pelosi/nancy-pelosi-wrong-legal-debate-over-attorney-gene/</guid></item><item><title>Donald Trump - Donald Trump falsely says family separations were Obama policy</title><link>https://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2018/nov/29/donald-trump/donald-trump-falsely-says-family-separations-were-/</link><description>The Truth-o-Meter says: False  |   Donald Trump falsely says family separations were Obama policy
  13. &lt;br/&gt;
  14. &lt;p&gt;Despite President Donald Trump&amp;rsquo;s repeated claims that the Obama administration separated immigrant children from their parents at the border the same way the Trump administration did, the facts remain unchanged: that&amp;rsquo;s not true. Family separations under the Obama administration did happen, but immigration experts say they were relatively rare; under Trump&amp;rsquo;s administration they were the systematic result of a policy to prosecute all immigrants who crossed illegally into the United States. Trump on Nov. 25 tweeted: &amp;quot;[email protected] did a phony story about child separation when they know we had the exact same policy as the Obama Administration.

  15. &lt;br/&gt;
  16. &lt;p&gt;President Donald Trump&amp;rsquo;s administration is under scrutiny for using tear gas on migrants at the southwest border, a response that pictures show affected young children. But the use of tear gas at the border isn&amp;rsquo;t unique to the Trump administration, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders argued. Under former President Barack Obama, she said, it was routine. Asked if the White House regretted that children were exposed to the tear gas, Sanders said the White House &amp;quot;would never want children to be in harm&amp;#39;s way in any capacity whatsoever&amp;quot; and that law enforcement officers use appropriate non-lethal force to ...&lt;/p&gt; &lt;a href="/truth-o-meter/statements/2018/nov/28/sarah-huckabee-sanders/sarah-sanders-says-obama-tear-gas-border-month/"&gt;&gt;&gt; More&lt;/a&gt;</description><pubDate>Wed, 28 Nov 2018 17:14:04 -0500</pubDate><guid>https://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2018/nov/28/sarah-huckabee-sanders/sarah-sanders-says-obama-tear-gas-border-month/</guid></item><item><title>Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez - Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wrong about spending in Georgia race</title><link>https://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2018/nov/28/alexandria-ocasio-cortez/alexandria-ocasio-cortez-wrong-about-spending-geor/</link><description>The Truth-o-Meter says: False  |   Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wrong about spending in Georgia race

  18. &lt;p&gt;In the 2018 midterm elections, Democrats managed to seize more than three dozen Republican-held House seats. One of these was Georgia&amp;rsquo;s 6th District, where Democratic challenger Lucy McBath defeated Republican incumbent Karen Handel. McBath&amp;rsquo;s underdog victory &amp;mdash; driven in part by suburban Atlanta voters&amp;rsquo; frustration over gun violence &amp;mdash; caught the eye of another incoming Democratic freshman lawmaker, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who herself had pulled off an upset. In the primary, Ocasio-Cortez ousted a senior Democrat in a New York City district. Ocasio-Cortez tweeted on Nov. 19: &amp;quot;Lucy McBath is a hero.

  20. &lt;p&gt;During a hearing for President Donald Trump&amp;rsquo;s nominee to lead a top immigration agency, Sen. Steve Daines said that so-called sanctuary jurisdictions are unlawful. &amp;quot;I&amp;rsquo;d like to talk about sanctuary jurisdictions, places that violate the laws of our nation, encourage illegal immigration and compromise security of law-abiding citizens,&amp;quot; Daines, R-Mont., said during Ronald Vitiello&amp;rsquo;s hearing for director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE. Daines said an immigrant in the country illegally was recently charged for a triple murder in Missouri after being released from a New Jersey county jail.

  23. &lt;br/&gt;
  24. &lt;p&gt;A criminal justice bill with support from bipartisan lawmakers as well as President Donald Trump has sparked a round-robin Twitter dispute among&amp;nbsp;senators. It began with a Nov. 16 report in the New York Times that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., had privately told Trump that he was not planning to bring up the bill, known as the First Step Act, in his chamber before the end of the year. The following day, Sen. Amy Klobuchar tweeted out the story, highlighting a comment in the article by Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., one of the bill&amp;rsquo;s leading Republican opponents. ...&lt;/p&gt; &lt;a href="/truth-o-meter/statements/2018/nov/20/tom-cotton/were-there-no-hearings-bipartisan-criminal-justice/"&gt;&gt;&gt; More&lt;/a&gt;</description><pubDate>Tue, 20 Nov 2018 16:06:55 -0500</pubDate><guid>https://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2018/nov/20/tom-cotton/were-there-no-hearings-bipartisan-criminal-justice/</guid></item><item><title>Donald Trump - Do you need an ID to buy a box of cereal, as Donald Trump said?

  26. &lt;p&gt;&amp;nbsp; President Donald Trump set eyebrows aloft with an analogy he used to explain election procedures in a Nov. 14 interview with the Daily Caller. Specifically, he said you needed more detailed identification to buy a box of cereal than to cast a ballot. Here&amp;rsquo;s what Trump told the conservative news outlet: &amp;quot;The Republicans don&amp;rsquo;t win, and that&amp;rsquo;s because of potentially illegal votes, which is what I&amp;rsquo;ve been saying for a long time.

  29. &lt;br/&gt;
  30. &lt;p&gt;In recent midterm elections when presidents faced a backlash from voters, the president accepted their brushback. In 2006, George W. Bush acknowledged a &amp;quot;thumping&amp;quot; by Democrats. In 2010, Barack Obama said he&amp;rsquo;d been delivered a &amp;quot;shellacking&amp;quot; by Republicans. By contrast, when President Donald Trump addressed the results of the 2018 midterms -- when his party lost at least 31 seats and control of the House -- he focused primarily on Republicans&amp;rsquo; ability to flip at least three seats in the Senate. &amp;quot;It was a big day yesterday,&amp;quot; he said. &amp;quot;Incredible day.

  32. &lt;p&gt;President Donald Trump, taking stock of the election results during a White House press conference, downplayed Democrats&amp;rsquo; retaking of the House and highlighted GOP gains in the Senate. Republicans flipped at least three Senate seats last night, with races in Arizona and Florida still too close to call (Republicans are ahead in the votes counted). Republicans lost a seat it held in Nevada. In Mississippi, a Republican and Democrat are headed to a Nov. 27 runoff, where the Republican is favored.

  38. &lt;p&gt;How do you define &amp;quot;soft on crime?&amp;quot; Mike Bost, a Republican congressman from southern Illinois, says his Democratic challenger, Brendan Kelly, embodies the definition. In a Bost-sponsored ad still running in the congressional campaign&amp;rsquo;s final days, an announcer says Kelly, a state&amp;rsquo;s attorney (the county prosecutor) for St. Clair County, &amp;quot;allowed half of the criminals he faced to walk free.&amp;quot; &amp;quot;That&amp;#39;s 50 percent walk free!&amp;quot; the ad in Illinois&amp;rsquo; 12th Congressional District says. &amp;quot;Kelly failed to protect women who were violently assaulted, allowed those guilty of sexual assault to cut inexcusable plea deals. That&amp;#39;s a failed record.&amp;quot; Fifty percent sounds ...&lt;/p&gt; &lt;a href="/truth-o-meter/statements/2018/nov/05/mike-bost/illinois-mike-bost-attacks-brendan-kellys-record-p/"&gt;&gt;&gt; More&lt;/a&gt;</description><pubDate>Mon, 05 Nov 2018 14:29:10 -0500</pubDate><guid>https://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2018/nov/05/mike-bost/illinois-mike-bost-attacks-brendan-kellys-record-p/</guid></item><item><title> House Majority PAC - Did Steve Chabot vote to take health care away from kids?</title><link>https://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2018/nov/05/house-majority-pac/did-steve-chabot-vote-take-health-care-away-kids/</link><description>The Truth-o-Meter says: Half-True  |   Did Steve Chabot vote to take health care away from kids?
  39. &lt;br/&gt;
  40. &lt;p&gt;The House Majority PAC, a group aligned with Democrats, released a new ad criticizing Republican congressman Steve Chabot&amp;rsquo;s record. Chabot is locked in a tight race with Democratic challenger Aftab Pureval to claim the seat in Ohio&amp;rsquo;s 1st Congressional District. The ad says Chabot &amp;quot;voted to cut health care for kids, affecting up to half the families at Cincinnati&amp;rsquo;s own Children&amp;rsquo;s Hospital.&amp;quot; The ad&amp;rsquo;s text, in full: &amp;quot;While they shouldn&amp;rsquo;t have to worry, some kids can&amp;rsquo;t escape it. But Steve Chabot voted to cut health care for kids, affecting up to half the families at Cincinnati&amp;rsquo;s own ...&lt;/p&gt; &lt;a href="/truth-o-meter/statements/2018/nov/05/house-majority-pac/did-steve-chabot-vote-take-health-care-away-kids/"&gt;&gt;&gt; More&lt;/a&gt;</description><pubDate>Mon, 05 Nov 2018 11:23:15 -0500</pubDate><guid>https://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2018/nov/05/house-majority-pac/did-steve-chabot-vote-take-health-care-away-kids/</guid></item><item><title>Mike Braun - Does Mike Braun support the lawsuit to end Obamacare?</title><link>https://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2018/nov/05/mike-braun/does-mike-braun-support-lawsuit-end-obamacare/</link><description>The Truth-o-Meter says: Mostly False  |   Does Mike Braun support the lawsuit to end Obamacare?
  41. &lt;br/&gt;
  42. &lt;p&gt;Throughout the country, Democratic candidates are singing a common tune, warning that their Republican opponents want to end protections for pre-existing conditions. In Indiana, incumbent Sen. Joe Donnelly recently accused his Republican challenger, Mike Bruan, of supporting the Texas lawsuit that aims to cancel Obamacare. This isn&amp;rsquo;t the first time Donnelly has made the claim, but this time, Braun had a chance to respond to it. In the second and final Indiana Senate debate, the three candidates &amp;mdash; Donnelly, Braun, and Libertarian Lucy Brenton &amp;mdash; said what they intended to do in order to keep health care insurance ...&lt;/p&gt; &lt;a href="/truth-o-meter/statements/2018/nov/05/mike-braun/does-mike-braun-support-lawsuit-end-obamacare/"&gt;&gt;&gt; More&lt;/a&gt;</description><pubDate>Mon, 05 Nov 2018 11:16:46 -0500</pubDate><guid>https://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2018/nov/05/mike-braun/does-mike-braun-support-lawsuit-end-obamacare/</guid></item></channel></rss>
