With the 2014 elections in the rear-view mirror and 2016 coming up fast, the political world has begun speculating about whether former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush -- son of one president and brother of a second -- could seek the White House himself.
In a recent fundraising letter sent on behalf of the Excellence in Education Foundation, Bush discussed several of his signature issues including about education and the economy. PolitiFact checked two claims by Bush:
"1/3 of our kids drop out, cannot go to college or start a career." We rated that claim Mostly False.
Bush also said this:
"Americans could always count on hard work leading to higher incomes and improved lives. The American dream was real and within reach," Bush said in the letter. "But today, among the developed nations, we are the least economically and socially mobile country in the world."
We rated that claim True.
