The new federal health care law goes into effect on October 1. USA Today and FactCheck.org looked at what you've heard on TV to find out what's true and what's not.

FactCheck.org looked at Sen. Cruz's 21-hour filibuster this week and President Barack Obama's appearance with former President Bill Clinton.

According to USA Today and FactCheck.org, "Cruz falsely claimed that the spouses of 15,000 UPS employees will be 'left without health insurance' and forced into 'an exchange with no employer subsidy.' UPS is dropping coverage for spouses only if they can get insurance with their own employer."

FactCheck's research also found "President Obama greatly exaggerated when he credited the health care law for bending the cost curve on health care spending. Experts say the down economy is the overwhelming reason that national health care spending has been growing at historically slow rates in recent years."
