Jim Webb - Webb says U.S. has world's highest incarceration rate
The Truth-o-Meter says: Mostly True | Webb says U.S. has world's highest incarceration rate There are too many people in prisons, says former U.S. Sen. Jim Webb, who’s seeking the Democratic presidential nomination. "The United States has the highest incarceration rate in the world," Webb says on his campaign website. Webb often made the same claim while representing Virginia in the U.S. Senate from 2007-2013, and he introduced unsuccessful legislation that would have set up a bipartisan commission to study prison and sentencing reform. He’s said alternatives to prison should be set up for nonviolent criminals such as drug offenders. Last December, we gave a True rating to Webb’s statement ... >> More
Jim Webb - 15 of 20 most polluted cities in world are in India, China, says Jim Webb
The Truth-o-Meter says: Mostly True | 15 of 20 most polluted cities in world are in India, China, says Jim Webb Former Sen. Jim Webb, D-Va., spent most of the first Democratic presidential debate in the shadow of frontrunners Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. But he got in a few shots here and there. During the debate, Webb discussed the issue of climate change, arguing that the United States can’t go it alone. "We are not going to solve climate change simply with the laws here," Webb said. "We've done a good job in this country since 1970. If you look at China and India, they're the greatest polluters in the world. Fifteen out of the 20 most polluted cities in ... >> More
Jim Webb - James Webb says stock market has tripled in value since 2009
The Truth-o-Meter says: Mostly True | James Webb says stock market has tripled in value since 2009 Many Americans believe that the economic recovery has only recently picked up steam. But one group that is widely seen as benefiting in recent years are investors in the stock market. This is a point that former Sen. James Webb, D-Va. -- a potential longshot candidate for president who’s been taking an economic-populist approach -- made during an interview on ABC’s This Week. On the March 15, 2015, edition of the show, host George Stephanopoulos brought up a comment by Webb that "powerful financial interests spending billions to elect people who think the current drift toward a permanent aristocracy is ... >> More
Jim Webb - Jim Webb says U.S. didn't have income taxes until 1913
The Truth-o-Meter says: Mostly True | Jim Webb says U.S. didn't have income taxes until 1913 Democratic presidential candidate Jim Webb says the U.S. needs a leaner, more efficient tax code. The former Virginia senator broadly calls for lowering tax rates in exchange for eliminating "loopholes and exceptions" that he says "have made a mockery out of true economic fairness." Webb says investment income should be taxed at the same rates as wages. And he would like to see the U.S. shift some of its burden away from income and toward consumption. Big changes? Sure. But Webb says the tax code is not sacrosanct. "We did not even have a federal income tax in this country ... >> More
