- Obama did cut over $700 billion from Medicare to fund Obamacare.
- The stimulus was a case of political patronage, corporate welfare and cronyism.
- The Janesville, General Motors plant was closed down under Obama (though Ryan made a more nuanced assertion that we’ll cover below)
- Obama did blow off the bipartisan debt commission.
- Obama’s waivers do allow for the relaxing of work requirements in welfare reform.
