17. What an ass
So many lies, so little cyberspace

"supporting NATA" - Rall ignores the fact that her position is identical to all of the other candidates but one, DK

"screwing up healthcare in 1993" - That was Byrd, who killed UHC in 1993 by ruling that the legislation could not be included in the budget, making it impossible to pass.

"voting for the proto-fascist USA-Patriot Act" - as did the other candidates (who were in Congress at the time) but one DK

"Reneging on her "baby bond" proposal" - an outright bald-faced lie. There was no reneging

"Where can you buy a house or a college education for $1000? On the moon?)" - Umm, 1000/year over 18 years plus interest/gains on investments that go tax free, not a simple $1000

and that was just from the portion the OP posted
