President Obama is a liar, according to political fact checkers PolitiFact. The group just named the 2013 lie of the year Obama’s “If you liked your health care plan, you can keep it” promise.
“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,” the group said of the president’s repeated pitch Thursday.
“But the promise was impossible to keep.”
The president made that statement over 37 times, Politico notes. The statement was announced on CNN’s “The Lead” with Jake Tapper.
