PolitiFacts left a lot of the lies out but this is a relatively good list of Obama’s lies.
Increase the capital gains and dividends taxes for higher-income taxpayers
Increase capital gains and dividends taxes from 15 to 20 percent for those making more than $250,000 (couples) or $200,000 (single)
Expand the child and dependent care credit
Expand and make refundable the child and dependent care credit.
Create a foreclosure prevention fund for homeowners
Create a $10 billion fund to help homeowners refinance or sell their homes. “The Fund will not help speculators, people who bought vacation homes or people who falsely represented their incomes.”
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.”
End no-bid contracts above $25,000
“Will ensure that federal contracts over $25,000 are competitively bid.”
Repeal the Bush tax cuts for higher incomes
Repeal the Bush tax cuts for those making more than $250,000 (couples) or $200,000 (single)
Phase out exemptions and deductions for higher earners
Restore the phaseouts of personal exemptions and itemized deductions for those making more than $250,000 (couples) or $200,000 (single), with threshholds indexed for inflation.
Sign the Employee Free Choice Act, making it easier for workers to unionize
“Obama is a cosponsor and strong advocate of the Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA), a bipartisan effort to make the unionization process more transparent and increase penalties on companies that violate employee rights. He will sign EFCA into law as president.”
Forbid companies in bankruptcy from giving executives bonuses
“Protect the jobs and benefits of workers and retirees when corporations file for bankruptcy by telling companies that they cannot issue bonuses for executives during bankruptcy while their workers watch their pensions disappear.”
Allow workers to claim more in unpaid wages and benefits in bankruptcy court
“Increase the amount of unpaid wages and benefits workers can claim in bankruptcy court against their employer.”
Allow imported prescription drugs
“Allow Americans to buy their medicines from other developed countries if the drugs are safe and prices are lower outside the U.S.”
Appoint federal-level coordinator to oversee all federal autism efforts
“They will appoint a Federal ASD Coordinator to oversee federal ASD research and federal efforts to improve awareness of ASD and improve the training of medical professionals to identify and treat ASD. By establishing one top-level point person to coordinate ASD efforts in the White House, they will ensure that ASD receives the recognition and priority it deserves in the federal government. The Federal ASD Coordinator will also be tasked with eliminating bureaucratic obstacles that may be delaying implementation of important ASD measures and ensuring that all federal ASD dollars are being spent in a manner that prioritizes results. The Coordinator will work with state task forces on ASD to ensure effective communication and collaboration among federal, state, and local agencies.”
Direct the Secretary of Health and Human Services to conduct a comprehensive study of federal cancer initiatives
“As president, Barack Obama will immediately direct his Secretary of Health and Human Services, in collaboration with agency officials, academic researchers, cancer survivors and advocates for people with cancer, and state public health officials, to comprehensively examine the various cancer-related efforts of federal agencies, and provide recommendations to eliminate barriers to effective coordination across federal agencies and between the federal government and other stakeholders.”
Create a National Commission on People with Disabilities, Employment, and Social Security
Create a national commission charged with “examining and proposing solutions to work disincentives in the SSDI, SSI, Medicare, and Medicaid,” among other things.
Change federal rules so small businesses owned by people with disabilities can get preferential treatment for federal contracts.
“Barack Obama and Joe Biden would direct the Small Business Administration to amend regulations under the Small Business Act that provide preferences in federal contracting to small businesses owned by members of socially and economically disadvantaged groups to include individuals with disabilities.”
Form international group to help Iraq refugees
“Will form an international working group to address” the problem of “more than five million Iraqis (who) are refugees or are displaced inside their own country.”
Work with Russia to move nuclear weapons off hair-trigger alert
“The United States and Russia have thousands of nuclear weapons on hair-trigger alert. Barack Obama believes that we should take our nuclear weapons off hair-trigger alert — something that George W. Bush promised to do when he was campaigning for president in 2000. Maintaining this Cold War stance today is unnecessary and increases the risk of an accidental or unauthorized nuclear launch. As president, Obama will work with Russia to find common ground and bring significantly more weapons off hair-trigger alert.”
Close the Guantanamo Bay Detention Center
“As president, Barack Obama will close the detention facility at Guantanamo.”
Reinstate special envoy for the Americas
“In the past, American presidents have filled the position of special envoy to bring senior-level attention to hemispheric matters that might otherwise get buried in the normal diplomatic process. Unfortunately, the position was eliminated after the post was vacated in June of 2004. As president Barack Obama will reinstate the position.”
Double the Peace Corps
“Barack Obama will double the Peace Corps to 16,000 by its 50th anniversary in 2011 and push Congress to fully fund this expansion, with a focus on Latin America and the Caribbean.”
