Geez. It's really hard to keep up with the lies during this election cycle.

I just wish these weren't lies:
Under Obamacare we will have a health care system run by the government.
Obama nationalized the student loan market.

You drank the kool-aid

If our health care system was going to be run by the government, then Cigna's CEO wouldn't have made $20 million last year. The insurance companies strong-armed congress into taking the teeth out of the Obamacare law so that now the law states that you have to buy insurance from one of them without a government option. I feel that was the wrong way to go, but it does prove that you are completely wrong on this one.
I got a government-backed college loan in 1990. George Bush Sr. must have nationalized the student loan program back then. Did you know that you can go to a bank and ask them for money for school and they will give it to you with your promise to pay it back in a reasonable amount of time? This is called a student loan and it has nothing to do with the federal government.
Did you want to try to cherry pick another of Romney's lies to change reality about or are you done now?
