SummaryThe Biden-Ryan debate was marked by some spirited claims that didn't always match the facts.
Ryan at one point ground out a collection of shopworn misstatements about the health care law that we've had to rebut time and again, claiming "20 million people are projected to lose their health insurance" (not true), that premiums have gone up $3,000 (no, they haven't) and that 7.4 million seniors "are going to lose" Medicare Advantage plans (maybe, but they'd still be covered by traditional Medicare).
And both Biden and Ryan continued to twist the facts about Romney's tax plan. Biden again misrepresented the findings of the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center, and Ryan repeated a misleading claim that "six studies have verified" that the plan is mathematically possible.
