2011 Lie of the Year

Just under the wire, the 2011 “Lie of the Year” has to go to PolitiFact for claiming that the 2011 Lie of the Year was that “Republicans voted to end Medicare.”

My understanding of the plan was that starting in ten years the federal government would stop paying medical costs and instead pay some amount of money toward private health insurance premiums.

You can call it anything you want, but you cannot call it Medicare.

I rate PolitiFact’s claim, pants-on-fire.
