Bummer. Obama Caught In a Major Lie In Very First Election Ad"That's why I passed laws moving people from welfare to work... cut taxes for working families... extended healthcare for wounded troops that had been neglected (Public Law 110-181). I approve of this message because I'll never forget those values."Barack ObamaBummer-- Barack Obama says he'll never forget those "Kansas Values" from his grandparents but it looks like he already has.
"The Country I Love"
First General Election Ad
Here is a frame from Obama's very first general election ad:
Obama says that he "extended healthcare for wounded troops that had been neglected" and cited Public Law 110-181 as proof of this.
The problem is: Obama didn't show up to vote. Only 9 senators voted the bill down or did not show up to vote.
Obama was one of the 9.
The bill passed the senate 91 to 3... without Obama's vote.
