FINALLY OBAMA GETS A DESERVED AWARD: Politifact’s ‘Lie of the Year'

The National Republican Senatorial Committee released a statement today that I think a majority of Americans will agree with, including me:

It’s no surprise that PolitiFact labeled President Obama’s promise that “if you like your plan, you can keep it” as their lie of the year. Countless times President Obama and Senate Democrats promised Americans something that they knew was blatantly false.

And this isn’t all. Obamacare was also sold on the promise that you can keep your doctor and that the law will make insurance more affordable. As premiums skyrocket and reports surface that millions will lose their doctor, it’s clear that Obamacare is nothing more than a slew of broken promises. And these broken promises are having serious consequences for millions of Americans across the country.

PolitiFact rewrites its own history in Obamacare 'Lie Of The Year' decision

In an impressive display of chutzpah, the Tampa Bay Times' fact-checking organization PolitiFact has designated President Obama's promise that "If you like your health care plan, you can keep it" as their "Lie of the Year" for 2013 while simultaneously distancing itself from its own years-long record of failing to identify it as a lie.
