Hillary Clinton said, "Not one of the 17 GOP candidates has discussed how they'd address the rising cost of college."

While some Republican hopefuls haven’t had much to say on the issue, it’s not accurate to say none of them have. Rubio has made higher education spending a major plank of his campaign, and other candidates like Christie and Fiorina have set forth ideas and positions. Other candidates have at least mentioned the subject at times.

We rate Clinton’s statement False.

"Look at all the grief I got for signing the bill that ended Glass-Steagall. There's not a single, solitary example that it had anything to do with the financial crash." Mostly True.

What works better on Twitter? Snarky digs at your enemies, or serious public policy discussions?

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton -- or at least their respective campaign staffs -- did both on Aug. 10, using graphics, hashtags and cheeky banter to debate a legitimate policy issue: the cost of higher education.

Hillary Clinton: "F: The grade given to Florida for college affordability under Jeb Bush's leadership." Half True.
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush (or at least their staffs) engaged in a snarky Twitter exchange shortly after Clinton gave a speech about college affordability. In the exchange, on Aug. 10, 2015, Clinton and Bush cheekily traded barbs about education policy. The original tweet, from Clinton’s camp, was straightforward, saying,

+A Wolf - Oh, I'd say a cult. Repeat with me, "In the name of Murdoch the father, Ailes the son and Fox News the holy spirit."
Of course, one could argue that the mentally ill are more vulnerable to joining cults.

Trump said of Iran that "if the (nuclear) deal gets rejected, they still get" $150 billion.

Experts told us that even if Congress rejected the nuclear deal -- thus maintaining current U.S. sanctions -- other countries could stop enforcing their own sanctions anyway. As a result, Iran would be able to access at least some of its assets that have been frozen under international sanctions. However, experts said it’s highly unlikely that this would amount to $150 billion, the maximum estimate of how much Iran could benefit by the lifting of all international sanctions without regard to Iran’s outstanding financial obligations. Without United States participation, the best estimate we could find was $40 billion.

Trump’s claim is partially accurate but cherry-picks the high end of estimates for the unfrozen assets. We rate Trump’s claim Half True.

+Mike Terry They have ruled both in favor of conservatives and against liberals so the "liberal media" argument is hogwash. They're fairly accurate and impartial and that means their rulings may be inconvenient to either party.

Jeb Bush: There has been a 100 percent "increase in student debt under this Democratic White House." Half True.
In a Twitter back-and-forth with Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush said Democrats don’t have a great track record for keeping student loan debt in check in recent years. On Aug. 10, as part of promoting her college affordability plan, Clinton tweeted a graphic that said
