Health Care and Handguns


What do these two things have in common? Not much, except that we published two stories on the topics Monday evening at FactCheck.org.

First, we looked at an Obama-Biden ad that took McCain’s words on his health care plan and banking regulation out of context:

Out of Context on Health Care
September 22, 2008

Then, we debunked various claims the NRA has been making in fliers and TV ads about Obama’s stance on gun control:

NRA Targets Obama
September 22, 2008

On yet another subject, we published an Ask FactCheck on Alaska’s Bridge to Nowhere, giving a time line of the votes, the criticism, the support and the “thanks, but no thanks” claim. It’s our most definitive outline of what exactly McCain, Palin, Obama and Biden have said and done regarding that infamous bridge.
