Biden Says Americans Deserve a President Who Tells the Truth, So Dan Crenshaw Exposes All His Lies

GOP Rep. Dan Crenshaw of Texas responded to a tweet from Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden saying Americans deserve a president who tells the truth by noting how often the former vice president and his old boss, Barack Obama, have not.
Crenshaw highlighted one of the big whoppers of the Obama administration that centered on the Affordable Care Act: “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.”
A related Obama claim, “If you like your health care plan, you can keep it,” was rated by Politifact as the “Lie of the Year” in 2013 following ACA’s implementation, which was largely delayed until after Obama’s 2012 presidential re-election campaign.
Crenshaw tweeted a number of Biden statements that Politifact has determined to be false.
Now do “if you like your doctor you can keep them,” and also this

One of them was the Democratic nominee’s claim earlier this month that he was the first person to call for invoking the Defense Production Act in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Politifact reported that in late February, over two weeks before Biden is known to have suggested the move, President Donald Trump’s health and human services secretary, Alex Azar, said at a White House roundtable for the media, “We will use the Defense Production Act as necessary to enable that our contracts go to the front of the line on contracting. That is an authority that we have, and we intend to use it to acquire anything that we need to acquire.”
On March 17, the day before Biden first publicly mentioned it, Trump said his administration was prepared to invoke the Defense Production Act, if necessary, to ramp up domestic production of the medical supplies needed to combat the coronavirus.
On March 18, the president issued an executive order invoking the legislation, specifically prioritizing the production of “personal protective equipment and ventilators.”
Politifact said it received no response when it asked the Biden campaign to provide a comment from the Democratic candidate that predated March 18.
Another topic Crenshaw pointed to that was identified by the fact-checker was a July attempt by Biden to push a false narrative about Trump and racism.
“No U.S. presidents elected before Donald Trump were racist,” Biden said.
