Washington, DC – After PolitiFact awarded the “Lie of the Year” to President Obama for the infamous promise, “If you like your health care plan, you can keep it,” the Republican National Committee (RNC) delivered awards to the offices of several Senate and House Democrats who are also guilty of repeating the Lie of Year.
Democrats receiving the award include Senators Mark Begich (D-AK), Mark Pryor (D-AR), Mark Udall (D-CO), Mary Landrieu (D-LA), Kay Hagan (D-NC), Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH), Jeff Merkley (D-OR), Mark Warner (D-VA), and Representatives Bruce Braley (IA-01), Gary Peters (MI-14), Tim Bishop (NY-01) and Nick Rahall (WV-03).
“The President’s promise that Americans could keep their healthcare plans was proven false when millions across the country received cancellation notices,” said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus. “Democrats knew it was a lie, and we will make sure Democrats running in 2014 are held accountable for their dishonesty. Voters need to know these candidates cannot be trusted to keep their promises.”
