MAJOR INACCURACIES IN JOHN KERRY'S REMARKS IN MILWAUKEE, WI

 

Kerry’s College Tuition Claim:  “We'll offer a tax credit on up to $4,000 of college tuition so that young Americans can turn their aspirations into achievement.”  (Sen. John Kerry, Prepared Remarks At Campaign Event, Milwaukee, WI, 10/22/04)

 

 

·        $4,000: "He will provide a credit for each and every year of college on the first $4,000 paid in tuition - the typical tuition and fees at a public college or university." ("Making College Affordable for All Americans," www.johnkerry.com, Accessed 6/14/04)

 

·        $2,500: "He will provide a credit for each and every year of college on the first $4,000 paid in tuition - the typical tuition for public colleges. The credit will provide 100% of the first $1,000 and 50% on the rest." ("Restoring Jobs and Rebuilding Our Economy," www.johnkerry.com, Accessed 6/14/04)

 

·        $2,400: "John Kerry will make college affordable again by offering a new College Opportunity Tax Credit-a tax credit worth 60% of $4,000 for each of four years of college."  ("Families Continue To Struggle In Bush Economy," www.johnkerry.com, Accessed 6/14/04)

 

 

 

Kerry’s Children’s Health Care Claim:  “For the past four years, President Bush has turned a blind eye as premiums went up $3,500, 2 million more women lost their health coverage, and millions of children have just one option for health care: the emergency room in the middle of the night.”  (Sen. John Kerry, Prepared Remarks At Campaign Event, Milwaukee, WI, 10/22/04)

 

 

 

 

 

Kerry’s Twisting Of Sec. Snow’s Words:  “Two weeks ago, the President's Treasury Secretary went to Ohio -- where they've lost more than 230,000 jobs -- and told them that those lost jobs were nothing but a ‘myth.’”  (Sen. John Kerry, Prepared Remarks At Campaign Event, Milwaukee, WI, 10/22/04)

 

 

Kerry’s Education Funding Claim.  “We're going to fight to ensure that every child in America goes to a safe, quality school with smaller class sizes, good teachers and high-standards. We'll fully fund No Child Left Behind, and offer three and a half million children the afterschool programs they need to keep them off the streets and out of trouble. In the richest country on earth, it makes no sense to spend $50,000 a year to send a kid to prison for life, when we can spend $10,000 a year on early childhood education, Head Start, Smart Start, the best possible start in life.”  (Sen. John Kerry, Prepared Remarks At Campaign Event, Milwaukee, WI, 10/22/04)
