President Obama Is Still the Deporter-In-Chief posted 12/23/2013, 5:40 AM (Cato @ Liberty)
[Category: Politics/Corruption]
Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) released figures showing that they deported fewer people during FY2013 than any year since FY2008 –368,644. But that number is still higher than at any time during the Bush administration despite the unauthorized immigrant population peaking in 2007. Just eyeballing the bottom graph confirms that the level of deportations is largely explained by the size of the unauthorized immigrant population (R-Squared=.813). The more unauthorized immigrants there ... (more)

PolitiFact Lie of the Year: "If you like your health care plan, you can keep it" posted 12/13/2013, 1:48 AM (PolitiFact)
[Category: Politics/Corruption]
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 as

Yawn. These are the same PolitiHacks who said "Sarah Palin's death panels" were the "lie of the year" a few years ago, despite them being "built into" the law.

This lie isn't the lie of the year, it was the lie of the year four years ago when he said it, four years ago when anyone with a clue knew it was a lie the moment it came out of his mouth. The PolitiHacks were too busy creating straw-men to demonize the opposition to this law to take the time to actually investigate Schmobama's obvious lies at the time, now they think they can make up for it four years later.

In no world ever, nor parallel universe, could the government taking over health care possibly bring down costs, give better service, nor not involve rationing of care, AKA have "death panels." That is the nature of the beast, and it was blatantly obvious from day one. If we can just name "lies of the year" years late, I hereby name PolitiHacks' "there are no death panels" in Obamacare the lie of the year. - Chris
