    There are some notable ones going on after the debate:

    Rick Perry -
    1.Stimulus created 0 jobs. Untrue - CBO scores 1 - 2.6 million jobs created and many more saved. Stimulus was responsible for helping Perry plug holes in the Budget.
    2. Merck only gave Perry $5,000. Untrue - Over the years Merck has contributed over 20K to Perry and much more through PACs.
    3. SSI is a ponzi scam. Untrue - SSI is a government funded program that tax payers pay for and draw when they retire. It's been solvent for 70 years and without adjustments will continue to be fine for another quarter century.

    Michele Bachmann-
    1. HPV injections were forced on 12 year olds by the government and this has never been done. Untrue - Government has had mandatory innoculations in the past.
    2. The HPV injection caused retardation in a person. Untrue - No reported cases of retardation have been made to the Health Department.

    Ron Paul -
    1. The American Embassy in Iraq is bigger then the vatican and cost a billion dollars. Untrue - It cost over 780 million and is smaller.

    Feel free to add your own.:doubt:

    Yo got some fibbing all by yourself. The best you can estimate is a margin of error a million and a half.

    Then SS if the government doesnt borrow there is no SS.

    You have some strange Ideas about solvency. The rest I could care less about. The left deserves it.

    Maybe I'm naive, but I don't think a significant number of people who listen to Rick Perry believe that Social Security is *literally* a Ponzi scheme. I understand his claim to be that it is similar to Ponzi schemes in certain way. Similarly, Democrats have characterized Republicans in Congress as "hostage takers" not because they have people tied up in their basements but because their strategy is like that of a hostage taker in certain ways.

    The stimulus creating zero jobs is a little harder to interpret generously. It seems to go along with the redefinition of "job" that some Republican office-seekers are pushing that any job the government creates is not a "job".

    $500B was stolen from Medicare - Both Romney and Bachman said this one.

    Gingrich claimed to have helped balance the budget for 4 years.

    "Obamacare is killing jobs" - What candidate hasn't said this?!

    Barrack Obama "promised" unemployment wouldn't go above 8%.

    Obama "threatened" the elderly when he said he couldn't guarantee their checks.

    "Death panels."

    Half of Americans pay no taxes.

    Obama isn't an American citizen.

    Obama is a socialist.
