We deserve better.

Fact Check: Did Obama vote 94 times for higher taxes?
Verdict:Misleading. McCain's summary ignores the fact that some of the votes were for measures to lower taxes for many Americans while increasing them for a much smaller number of taxpayers. A nonpartisan examination also finds that the 94 total includes multiple votes on the same measures and budget votes that would not directly lead to higher taxes.

Verdict: True

Fact Check: Obama's Social Security charge
