Topic: Child Care

Barack Obama
"In 31 states, decent child care costs more than college tuition."
The information comes from a 2013 report by Child Care Aware of America, but the cost was for infants. Child care for a 4 year old costs more than in-state college tuition and fees in 19 states.
Democratic Party
The DNC said that "Bush not only opposes marriage equality, he’s said he ‘personally’ believes gay couples should be banned from adopting children."
While in office, Bush repeatedly said that he opposed gay marriage, although he was reluctant at times to amend the state Constitution since it was already banned in state law. He also opposed gay adults adopting children. Since leaving office, Bush said that he supports "traditional marriage,".
RI Center for Freedom
"Common welfare programs give income of $43,330 or $20.83 an hour."
It's not income as most people think of it. It's how much a poor single parent with two children under age 5 would have to earn to get the equivalent value of all programs, including food stamps, medical care, heating assistance and housing subsidies, plus $6,648 a year in cash assistance.
Rush Limbaugh
The children coming across the U.S. border "were never examined after they got here. They were just sent out across the country. Many of them had measles."
Limbaugh provided no evidence that this is true. Probably, because no evidence exists. The children who came in from Central America were examined and vaccinated as part of a standard routine.
"The No. 1 cause of childhood deaths is preventable accidents."
The claim is based on hard numbers from the CDC, and the general trend has been consistent for the last decade and a half.
"American families work hard to earn $4,250 a month. Obama is spending $18,972 a month on each illegal immigrant child."
The numbers cited by the meme are framed in a misleading way. The sum of money cited has been allotted to a small fraction of all undocumented immigrant children in the United States, and it isn’t going into their pockets as family earnings are.
Bernie Sanders Vt Senate
"We have the highest rate of childhood poverty of any major country on Earth."
Studies show that while the United States does consistently have one of the highest rates of childhood poverty in the world, there are several OECD members with higher rates, notably Israel and Mexico.
Jim Carrey
Actor Jim Carrey says the "California governor says yes to poisoning more children with mercury and aluminum in vaccines."
Carrey called aluminum a poison and toxin. Like many other chemicals, it could be, in dosages and scenarios that are rare. There is no scientific evidence found by PolitiFact suggesting otherwise. In fact, the only debate stems from a theory, not research that contradicts decades of immunizations.
Vicky Hartzler
Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler said "Twenty-five percent of our kids in foster care are there because their parents are involved in drugs."
Drug abuse by parents is the second most prevalent reason for a parent losing custody of a child to foster care services.
