Verdict: Half True

McDonnell is an accolyte of the radical extremist ayatollah Pat Robertson, the guy who said that the 3,000 Americans murdered by Al Qaeda on 9-11 deserved to be killed. Shame on Virginia for electing such a monster to its governorship.
If this is a half truth than what is the truth?
Amidst the rambling, the article says:
"The household share of the gross federal debt is slightly more than $106,000."
Then you parrot the $100,000 figure is "half true."
Don't you mean it is 6% too low or 94% true?
Spin, spin, spin, spin, spin
If you add social security, medicare, medicaid, and all the rest of the debt and obligations it is $340,000.00+ per every man, women, and child in the U.S.
Yes, but I wouldn't call it "off" McDonnell means to misinform, to tell a little 'white lie' because then his base is happy.
Thanks for calling him out CNN.
WHO was in that chamber? Being an African American, I found the positioning of Blacks and Asians a bit suspicious.
This guy is a tool.........not as bad a Jindal but a tool.
Did he hear the speech even?
CNN what is up with this?
You are actually fact checking the Reds statements and point out when they are not or half true, as opposed to just posting them on the ticker with a sensational heading which most times includes "slams" in a very tiresome way?
You must have a fresh journalism intern that respects true journalism as opposed to just taking the easy way out.
Kudos, to the person that actually did this research!
Typical Republican: Spreading misinformation to score political points.
What a bunch of losers the GOP are!
So its only half...so what...can the people afford this much...Lets face it the country is bankrupt and no Leasdership in sight to fix anything......!!!
Off on a little more than just that...
Wow. Just... wow.
I don't think politicians ever learned basic budget skills in high school. Or at any other point in life.
And they just raised it by nearly two trillion? What are they thinking? ARE they thinking?
