Not that he’s the only one, of course. “Republicans” like John Boehner and others have been spreading the same farrago of fraudulent statements 24/7 for quite some time now. But because Teddy Boi is such a cretin, and uttered those lies very loudly and recently, we’ll pick on him.

Here are the four lies du jour:”Obamacare is destroying jobs,” Cruz said. “It is driving up health care costs. It is killing health benefits. It is shattering the economy.” You’ve heard these lies before, and the “news” media just regurgitates them verbatim, with no fact-checking or correcting. Your Cranky Correspondent hereby presents the actual facts, and they DO prove that the “Republicans” are lying through their teeth, noses, ears, eyes, and every other orifice they possess.

Lie Number A: “Obamacare is destroying jobs.” Actual Facts Number A: Millions of jobs have been created since Obamacare was signed into law on 3/23/2010. Here’s the source: http://money.cnn.com/galleries/2012/news/economy/1206/gallery.Obama-economy/index.html

Lie Letter 2: “It is driving up health care costs.” Actual Facts Letter 2: Health care costs are increasing at a slower pace since Obamacare was signed into law on 3/23/2010. Here’s the source: http://kaiserfamilyfoundation.files.wordpress.com/2013/08/8466-employer-health-benefits-2013_summary-of-findings1.pdf

Lie the Third: “It is killing health benefits.” Actual Facts the Third: More people have been getting more and better benefits since Obamacare was signed into law on 3/23/2010. Here’s the source: http://obamacarefacts.com/obamacare-facts.php

Lie Number 4: “It is shattering the economy.” Actual Facts Number Four: The economy has been growing steadily and consistently since Obamacare was signed into law on 3/23/2010. Here’s the source: http://www.forbes.com/sites/adamhartung/2013/05/16/economically-could-obama-be-americas-best-president/

Spread this around, everybody. When so many people are lying so much, we need some facts to make sure that people are basing their decisions on truth, instead of the lies of Cruz and his compadres.
