Conservatives across the fruited plain are likely going to be shocked by this - and liberals extremely angered! - but the fact-checking website PolitiFact on Thursday named President Obama's "If you like your health care plan, you can keep it" promise the Lie of the Year.
Such was announced on CNN's The Lead
With a drum roll going, host Jake Tapper said, “So here it is, by popular demand, the number one Lie of the Year, based on something the President first said in 2009, and then updated in 2013.”
A video clip of President Obama was then played with him saying, “If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan.”
Another clip was aired with Obama saying more recently, “What we said was you could keep it if it hasn’t changed since the law's passed.”
“So this was a runaway favorite with readers,” Tapper said. “59 percent voted for this as Lie of the Year.”
