Another helpful fact-check on claims that Obama increased federal spending. Romney's false claims about Obama's spending "inferno" are expertly debunked by FactCheck.org, which also refutes another claim endorsed by the White House, stating that such a binge “never happened”. As always, the truth lies somewhere in between partisan claims from both sides, and FactCheck presents a well-sourced analysis to help us read through the lines and make an informed decision based on facts, not opinions.

An incredible and extensive research by Brooks Jackson of FactCHeck.org that clearly established that Mitt Romney's claim was incorrect. Enough qualified data were presented, both in written and visualised form, which conveys information more efficiently than words. A good piece of journalism without any doubt.
