“In addition to focusing on job creation, my husband multitasks. He was also focused on improving access to health care for millions of Americans. (Applause.) Barack didn’t care whether health reform was the easy thing to do politically because that’s not who he is. He cared that it was the right thing to do. And today, because of health reform, our parents and grandparents on Medicare are paying hundreds less for their prescription drugs — today.”
-First Lady Michelle Obama
Think Progress counted 27 lies told by Romney during the debates. That’s 27 new ads we can run. Here’s No. 3:
