Our unemployment rate is now lower than it was before the financial crisis

More kids are graduating highschool and college than ever before,

more of our people have health insurance than ever before

our businesses have created more than 11 million new jobs,
The exact number is 11.2 million.

our deficits cut by two thirds

health care inflation at its lowest rate in 50 years
National Journal Fact Check : In 2013, the most recent year for which data are available, total U.S. health care spending increased by just 3.6 percent. That's the lowest single-year increase on record, and it made 2013 the fifth straight year of historically low spending growth. Health care spending grew more slowly than the overall economy, meaning health care's share of the economy didn't get any bigger. All of this is extremely good news for the country's balance sheet. Obamacare doesn't deserve all the credit: There's usually a period of slow growth in the few years following a recession, and experts agree that's part of the slowdown we're seeing now. But many health policy experts say Obamacare is helping

I am the eternal optimist and it is great to see good news such as the increase in the H.S. graduation numbers, but I do have a problem believing some of the folks who claim to be "fact checkers"

"Facts," someone once said, "are stubborn things." If there is one thing that is gnawing the marrow out of political coverage in America today, it's the so-called "fact checkers" whom editors of some of the nation's most prestigious publications have appointed to evaluate the veracity of statements made by candidates for public office.....
