So Obama’s “If you like your plan, you can keep it.” has been named the Lie of the Year by PolitiFact. Shouldn’t have been lie of the year of 2010 when it was the lie used to get Obamacare passed? There is no way Obama would have been able to get all the Democrats behind him if he told the truth and said, “Millions of you who like your health care are going to lose it because we’ve decided to put more demands on insurance to make it more expensive.”
The actual Lie of the Year 2010 was calling Obamacare “A government takeover of health care.” And I guess that maybe wasn’t accurate, because when a tornado destroys a house, you don’t usually say, “That tornado sure took over that house.” Great job calling out that lie, you guys. Super helpful.
Actually, in 2009, PolitiFact rated the “If you like your plan, you can keep it” line as half-true. So back when it would have been helpful, they didn’t call Obama out on this massive lie. But now when it’s far too late, suddenly they’re on him. That’s how useful these “fact checkers” are. What do these guys even get a paycheck for? The media has been nothing but in the way as we’ve tried to fight Obama’s incompetence, and now look where we are.
