Politifacts 2013 LIE OF THE YEAR … Barack Obama on Obamacare: “If You Like Your Health Care Plan, You Can Keep It” … #YouLie
It’s Official, Obama is the Lying King: Congratulations President Barack Obama, you have just won your most deserved award since you have been president, ‘Lie of the Year,’ as opposed to a Nobel Peace prize.
It not only may be the lie of the year, it might be the lie of the decade and be remembered as one of the top lies of the century. The Washington Post Politifacts has named its 2013 Lie of the Year and the winner is Barack Obama and “If You Like Your Health Care Plan, You Can Keep It”. I think there are 5 million + individuals who have lost their healthcare coverage thanks to Obamacare who would agree. And most likely 40-50 million more who will do the same when the employer mandate of Obamacare kicks in.
So many lies, so many to choose from when it comes to the least transparent president in history and one who may have perpetrated one of the greatest frauds on the American people, ever.
It was a catchy political pitch and a chance to calm nerves about his dramatic and complicated plan to bring historic change to America’s health insurance system.
“If you like your health care plan, you can keep it,” President Barack Obama said — many times — of his landmark new law.
But the promise was impossible to keep.
So this fall, as cancellation letters were going out to approximately 4 million Americans, the public realized Obama’s breezy assurances were wrong.
Boiling down the complicated health care law to a soundbite proved treacherous, even for its promoter-in-chief. Obama and his team made matters worse, suggesting they had been misunderstood all along. The stunning political uproar led to this: a rare presidential apology.
For all of these reasons, PolitiFact has named “If you like your health care plan, you can keep it,” the Lie of the Year for 2013. Readers in a separate online poll overwhelmingly agreed with the choice. (PolitiFact first announced its selection on CNN’s The Lead with Jake Tapper.)
For four of the past five years, PolitiFact’s Lie of the Year has revolved around the health care law, which has been subject to more erroneous attacks than any other piece of legislation PolitiFact has fact-checked.
And even after it is obvious that Obama lied, Weasel Zippersopines, there are many on the LEFT that still insist Obama did not lie.

[...] Speaking Tuesday at the National Press Club in Washington, DC, New York Democrat Sen. Charles Schumer had an epiphany and stated that “Democrats blew the opportunity the American people gave them” after the 2008 election. Schumer went on to say that, “We took their mandate and put all of our focus on the wrong problem, health care reform.” Gee, ya think? Sen. Schumer was one of the 60 Democrat senators who passed Obamacare, with not one GOP vote, and forced the unpopular law down the throats of Americans. Now suddenly because as we predicted back then, it would be their undoing, Schumer has misgivings that Democrats focused on it first and did not focus on what Americans were dealing with on a day to day basis, a poor economy and unemployment. Schumer told those in attendance “that considering 85% of all Americans got their health care from either the government, Medicare, Medicaid, or their employer … we would still only be talking about only 5% of the electorate.” Wasn’t that the same argument that those opposed to Obamacare were making in 2009? Why blow up the healthcare system in the United States for only 5% of the people? This is a kin to demolishing a house because the back porch needs repair. Not only did Democrats not listen to the people, the law they forced upon them was nothing more than a lie. [...]

Just how bad has Barack Obama been with his plan to defeat ISIS, if he even has one? Even criticized Barack Obama for his comment that his (Obama’s) strategy on ISIS was working. She then went on to same that it is not true that ISIS is contained. Did one of the most liberal MSM individuals just call Barack Obama a liar? But what should we expect from the Liar in Chief who told us that with Obamacare, you can keep your healthcare plan and doctor if you like them. [...]
