Frack Nation: A Journalist’s Search for the Fracking Truth premiered Tuesday night on Mark Cuban’s AXS TV channel. The documentary serves as a fact-check to the sensational claims made in the 2010 anti-fracking film Gasland, which was directed by an environmentalist documentarian named Josh Fox. In a famous scene from Gasland, Fox shows residents lighting their tap water on fire and claims fracking is the culprit.

On February 4, 2009, three years ago yesterday, President Obama first broke his central campaign promise: a “firm pledge” that no American making less than $250,000 per year would see “any form of tax increase.” The promise was made repeatedly on the campaign trail by both Obama and running mate Joe Biden, who assured voters in a vice-presidential debate: “No one making less than $250,000 under Barack Obama’s plan will see one single penny of their tax raised, whether it’s their capital gains tax, their income tax, investment tax, any tax.”
Although it doesn’t take effect until 2013, President Obama’s Medical Device Tax is already killing jobs.
