    Political TRUTH-O-METER

    Post by Susan on Mon Jan 26, 2009 6:45 pm

    I saw this on another forum, and knew that we need to pay close attention to this website! WOW! Someone is actually taking notes and taking notice. What a Face

    Excerpt:

    PolitiFact is a project of the St. Petersburg Times to help you find the truth in American politics. Reporters and editors from the Times fact-check statements by members of Congress, the White House, lobbyists and interest groups and rate them on our Truth-O-Meter. We’re also tracking more than 500 of Barack Obama’s campaign promises and are rating their progress on our new Obameter.

    Tracking Obama’s promises
    15 Promise Kept
    3 Compromise
    2 Promise Broken
    1 Stalled
    20 In the Works
    469 No Action

    Broken promises:

    No. 234: Allow five days of public comment before signing bills
    To reduce bills rushed through Congress and to the president before the public has the opportunity to review them, Obama "will not sign any non-emergency bill without giving the American public an opportunity to review and comment on the White House website for five days."


    No. 505: Create a $3,000 tax credit for companies that add jobs
    "During 2009 and 2010, existing businesses will receive a $3,000 refundable tax credit for each additional full-time employee hired."

    Obama's score at halftime: 17 promises kept, 2 broken
    http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/article/2009/mar/09/Obama-campaig-promises-50-day/

    Tracking Obama’s promises

    17 Promise Kept
    7 Compromise
    2 Promise Broken
    2 Stalled
    39 In the Works
    446 No Action

    http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/

    Stalled:

    No. 24: End income tax for seniors making less than $50,000
    "Will eliminate all income taxation of seniors making less than $50,000 per year. This will eliminate taxes for 7 million seniors -- saving them an average of $1,400 a year-- and will also mean that 27 million seniors will not need to file an income tax return at all."

    No. 508: Allow penalty-free hardship withdrawals from retirement accounts in 2008 and 2009
    "Obama and Biden are calling for legislation that would allow withdrawals of 15% up to $10,000 from retirement accounts without penalty (although subject to the normal taxes). This would apply to withdrawals in 2008 (including retroactively) and 2009."

    Tracking Obama’s promises

    19 Promise Kept
    6 Compromise
    3 Promise Broken
    3 Stalled
    44 In the Works
    438 No Action

    The Newest Promise Broken:

    No. 240: Tougher rules against revolving door for lobbyists and former officials

    "No political appointees in an Obama-Biden administration will be permitted to work on regulations or contracts directly and substantially related to their prior employer for two years. And no political appointee will be able to lobby the executive branch after leaving government service during the remainder of the administration."

    http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/rulings/promise-broken/

    The newest stalled:

    No. 446: Enact windfall profits tax for oil companies
    "Will require oil companies to take a reasonable share of their record-breaking windfall profits and use it to provide direct relief worth $500 for an individual and $1,000 for a married couple. The relief would be delivered as quickly as possible to help families cope with the rising price of gasoline, food and other necessities. The rebates would be fully paid for with five years of a windfall profits tax on record oil company profits."
